Bible Sense for Progress


The Commission
"The hour has come to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil, through the preaching of the Word of Faith; and I am sending you to undertake this task."

Introduction
God has programmed the end-time Church for enlargement. Isaiah 2:2 says: And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. This is echoed in Micah 4:1-2 and several other Scriptures throughout the Bible. However, this enlargement is not for the Church as a body alone, but also for the individuals that make up the body. The Bible describes the end- time as a time when at least ten unbelievers will take hold of a believer by his skirt and say, "We will follow you, for we have heard that God is with you" (Zech. 8:23). This will be as a result of the divine prominence believers will be enjoying, and which will be so glaring for all to see. It means that as an end-time saint, you too should expect to end your journey in prominence, by reason of God's liftings. Moreover, the path of a just man is as the shining light that shines more and more unto the perfect day (Prov. 4:18). So, continuous progress and promotion are your heritage, if you are born again. Since God showed me this truth, I have never had a better last year; every year has been a plus on the previous. I see you enjoying the same in Christ from henceforth. When life is void of progress, it becomes a burden. But living is exciting when everything you do yields good results. Progress is your heritage, because you are created to go from glory to glory (2 Cor. 3:18). Also, Jesus said you are a city set upon an hill that cannot be hid (Matt. 5:14). So, getting to the top in life is not just your desire, it is your destiny. You are destined to wax great, and go forward, and grow, until you become very great (Gen. 26:13). However, it is important to note here that progress is in phases, and that every advancement is traceable to the quality of information available to you. As I share the scriptural principles for progress with you in this book, I see your

story of stagnation change into testimonies of continuous progress and enlargement, till Jesus comes. You are created to be great, you shall not die small! You will go forward, in Jesus' name!

1. The Laws Of Progress Vision


The first law of progress is vision. You must have a target you are striving to achieve or attain in life, a goal that keeps you going. Having a mental picture of your destination is what motivates you to get there. After Lot departed from Abraham, God told him: ...Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. Genesis 13:14-15 Abraham had a mental picture of all the fruitful lands of Canaan (a goodly land flowing with milk and honey) and his descendants eventually possessed it (Josh. 23:3-5). You can only possess as far as your eyes can see. The largest church in the world today is in South Korea, pastored by David Yonggi Cho. Each stage of the church's enlargement was born out of vision. In April 1982, before our ministry was officially commissioned, I was addressing members of the prayer group, and said, "We are going to have a tent that will sit 50,000 worshippers." When I said this, we didn't have a plot of land anywhere on the earth, but I had a vision. I also told them that we would soon be flying around in our own aircraft, preaching the everlasting Gospel to the heathen nations of the earth. I said we were going to have a printing press that would operate at an industrial scale. Today, all these things have come to pass. What you can't see today, don't expect to possess tomorrow. That little business you are managing today will remain little, until you begin to see farther. In the early days of our ministry, when there were only about 21 people in the congregation, I would preach with all my might, till the sweat on my body would be seen through my three-piece suit. But one day, I said to the people, "You must be wondering why I am shouting like this. I am preaching to the crowd outside that you can't see." Today, there is never a service in our church, where thousands of people are not seated outside. Every enlargement or progress you encounter in life begins with vision. Wherever

Page 4

you find yourself tomorrow is a function of what you see today. God said to Abraham, "Look at the stars, see if you can count them." He couldn't, and God said to him, "So, shall your seed be" (Gen. 15:5). Abraham saw an uncountable number of stars that day, that is why the earth is full of sons and daughters of Abraham today, including you and me, who belong to that lineage by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Gal. 3:14). Vision is it! So, begin to see your business affect the economy of Nigeria. Begin to see yourself as a commander in your career and of the wealth of the land. That is where you belong, and you will surely get there. Dreamers are rulers, and visionaries are commanders. You are a son(daughter) of the Most High, you are not created to live like a pauper. So see yourself as the head and not the tail. See yourself get ting to the top in your area of endeavour, and you will surely get there.

Faith
After God said to Abraham, "So shall your seed be", the Bible says, "And he believed in the Lord" (Gen. 15:6). Today, the earth is filled with men and women who are sons and daughters of Abraham by faith. It is not enough to have a vision, you must also believe God for its realization, for the just shall live by his faith (Hab. 2:4). Faith is not mental assent, which merely agrees that the vision is possible. Rather, it is having the substance that will make it happen from the Word. So, you have tosearch out the Scriptures that guarantee your progress, and keep them in your heart. Faith is what gives motion to vision; and motion leads to enlargement. No matter the nature or quality of your dream, it will never see the light of the day without God. The Bible says, "Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it" (Ps. 127:1). Also, "It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy" (Rom. 9:16). Please, appreciate the place of faith in your quest for progress and enlargement, because without God you can do nothing (Jn. 5:30). And without faith, it is impossible to move God (Heb. 11:6).

Meekness
The third law of progress is meekness. Your height in life is determined by the depth of your meekness. That is why the Bible says, "The meek shall inherit the earth..." (Ps. 37:11).

Page 5

Lucifer, who is now known as the devil, was originally one of the commanding angels in heaven. He was in charge of praise and worship. But his heart was lifted up within him, and in his pride, he planned to enthrone himself above God (Isa.14:12-15). He and the angels who rebelled against God were forcefully ejected from heaven (Rev. 12:7-8). Since then, God has determined never to let any man get higher than his humility. That is why the Bible says: ...Be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 1 Peter 5:5 Meekness is a yardstick for enlargement. Jesus established this truth in Matthew 5:5, where He said: Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Your inheritance is largely a function of God's assessment of your meekness. It has nothing to do with your pious looks or religious posture. Meekness is an issue of the heart, and God is the only One that searches the heart and tries the reins (Jer. 17:10). His eyes run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself mighty on the behalf of them whose hearts are perfect toward Him (2 Chron. 16:9). God won't lift you to a point where He can't find you in church any more. He, therefore, determines your size per time by assessing the state of your heart. Jesus said, "I am meek and lowly in heart..." (Matt. 11:29). His humble heart is what led to His lifting, and the Bible says, "...Of the increase of His government... there shall be no end" (Isa. 9:7). Only God knows how many people are daily being drawn into His kingdom the world over. And it is simply as a result of Jesus' meekness. The Bible says: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8 People get born again daily in large numbers, because Jesus humbled Himself and died a death of shame on the cross, that God might harvest more sons to glory. Your meekness determines how much grace is available to you, and grace determines your ultimate height in life. Meekness is a must for anyone who wants to progress in life. If at every stage of attainment in life, you see God as the doer, and not yourself, then you are set for great heights. If while people are clapping for you, you are acknowledging and giving the glory back to God, then you are on your way up. Let every commendation and promotion that comes your way, rather than elate you, humble you. That is the way to go up.

Page 6

If God is sure that no matter your height in life, you will still maintain your service in His kingdom, that your Christian character and modesty in all things will still be in place, and that as a multi-billionaire you will still remain a committed Christian, He will ensure that your lifting will know no limit. If you will promise from a genuine heart to always acknowledge Him as your source, in truth and indeed, and that no matter what you become in life, you will never withdraw your dedication and commitment to Him, He will not hesitate to set you up above all the nations of the earth (Deut. 28:1). Meekness is not prayed for; it is a decision you make. Jesus took upon Himself the form of a servant. He made Himself of no reputation and didn't consider Himself to be equal with God, but was obedient even unto death (Phil. 2:7-8). Hence His reward came in verse 9: Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 1 Peter 5:6 says: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: I see meekness pave a way for you to the top, in Jesus' mighty name.

Diligence
Hard work is another law of progress. For you to go forward in life, you must be spiritually, mentally and physically committed to your task. Seest thou a man diligent in his business, he shall stand before kings and not before mean men. Proverbs 22:29 Progress or enlargement has no room for idleness. It is for the diligent. God told Abraham: ...Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:1-3 That was a promise of enlargement or progress; but the Bible says in the next verse, "And Abraham departed..." Abraham didn't depart to start wandering around; he departed and started working very hard as a cattle rearer. In Genesis 13:2, the Bible

Page 7

says, "And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold." Every accomplishment in life is a function of your commitment to duty. You must know what it takes to make it to the top in your field, and then give it your all. Progress doesn't just jump on people. That is why Isaiah 54:2-3 says: Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left... You are the one to set the stage for your breaking forth on the right hand and on the left. You enlarge your tent by increasing your spiritual, physical and mental input, in preparation for increased output. You need to be mentally committed to what you are doing, because mental commitment is what leads to mental enlargement, and mental enlargement guarantees progress. You must also invest your energy and resources into your assignment, in order to get the desired results. Enlargement begins with vision, it is propelled by faith, guaranteed by meekness and realized by commitment. Commitment is the price you pay for attainment. So sit in your shop or place of assignment with excitement. Be involved in everything that makes the business work, and not be a busy-body.

2. The Place Of Favour


Every glorious destiny is a product of favour. Jesus enjoyed honour and dignity on the earth. This, the Bible attributes to the favour He had with God and men (Lk. 2:52). Favour was part of what made Him. The Bible says in Psalm 30:5, "...In his favour is life..." That means, the quality of life a man lives is determined by the level of favour He enjoys. The Psalmist said, "Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong..." (Ps. 30:7). God's favour determines the strength of your life; it determines how much you progress. The word "favour" also means mercy, goodness, and grace. That is why in Psalm 102:13, David said: Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come. Remember the Bible says, "it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy" (Rom. 9:16). That means no matter how much a man wills to progress in life, no matter how much he exerts himself physically, except he enjoys God's favour, he can't make much progress in life.

Page 8

That is why many are dying under hard labour, yet nothing is happening for them. Favour is absent. Apostle Paul said, "I am what I am by the grace of God" (1 Cor. 15:10). That is, "I am what I am by the favour of God." Thank God for vision, faith, meekness and diligence. But all these must be crowned with favour, for you to enjoy continuous progress and enlargement in life. Remember, promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south (Ps. 75:6). When you have favour with God, He compels all men to favour you. You can't have favour with God and be despised by men. Favour opens doors for you where others are turned back. It makes room for you where your peers would never dream of treading. It makes you a sweatless high-flyer. When you are in favour with God, helps from heaven flow in your direction, especially in times of need. For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12 Favour is the heritage of the righteous. But what causes the flow of favour in a man's life?

Sow Seeds Of Favour


First, know that favour is a seed. Jesus said, "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy" (Matt. 5:7). Only those who sow seeds of favour enjoy the harvest of favour. Favour doesn't answer to prayer; it responds only to the law of seedtime and harvest. Whatsoever a man sows, that also shall he reap (Gal. 6:7). If you don't show favour to people, don't expect to enjoy favour as well. Favour is not your automatic heritage (by redemption); it is your acquired heritage. Jesus said, "As ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise" (Lk. 6:31). He also said, "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again" (Lk. 6:38). Favour is a seed whose harvest is sure. Don't withhold good from others when it is in your power to meet their needs (Prov. 3:27-28), because they too might not come to your aid when you are in need. Many are struggling, praying and fasting, yet heaven seems to be locked against them. It is because they did not show favour to those who needed their favour. When you favour others, even your children's children will reap the harvest.

Page 9

We had some tenants when I was a child. From time to time, my mother would cook for all their children. This used to bother me, because they had their own mothers, and moreover, it was my duty to wash the plates used. I didn't feel it was right. One day, I asked my mother, "Why are you doing this?" Her reply was, "I am giving these children food, so that when my children get to places where I am not, someone else will give them food."

Favour The Kingdom Of God


Another way to provoke the flow of God's favour is by kingdom addiction. Psalm 102:13-14 says: Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come. For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof. When you favour the kingdom of God, you harvest favour in return. You will begin to flow in fearful blessings and increases. I see you entering into your season of enlargement by favour. Don't be a consumer, only waiting to receive from people. Rather, be a distributor of the grace of God, and it won't stop multiplying to you. Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard. Proverbs 13:15 Most of the hardships people suffer can be traced to ignorance. But good understanding will help you escape them. You must have a good understanding of the covenant walk with God and give it what it takes. It will keep you permanently in favour with God. And when you are in favour with God, who can stop your rising? I see God's favour promote and enlarge you, in Jesus' precious name.

3. Overcoming The Enemies Of Progress


There are certain things that hinder progress. They are things to guard against, if you must obtain, enjoy and maintain progress. Past Achievements Glorying in past achievements is a subtle enemy that has held many captive. One wise man said, "The greatest enemy of best is good." Once you say, "I think this is good enough," you cut your chances of going for the

Page 10

better and may never get to your best. But Paul said: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14 Paul means to say, "My best is yet to come. I have not come to the end of my journey. No matter where I am now, I am not at my peak yet, I am still striving to get there." No matter your present achievement, you must not allow it to stop your vision for progress. Where you are now may be glorious, but it is not God's ultimate for you. His ultimate for you is "above all nations of the earth", where you will lend to nations and shall not borrow. Can't you see how far you are from there? No matter how glorious your present position, it is not your rest. A greater future awaits you. Progress stops when you think you have arrived; but remember that there is always room at the top. There is still a place called forward, so press towards the mark. Keep your eyes on the target, till you are indeed above all nations of the earth. God is faithful, He will take you there. Remember, the path of a just man is as a shining light, that shines more and more unto a perfect day. God's plan for you is progress; don't cut it short!

Negative Past
Another enemy of progress is the negative past. Regrets, self-pity and fear of failure are clogs in the wheel of progress. That is why God said in Isaiah 43:18-19: Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. New things are made known only to those who put the past behind them. They are reserved for those who refuse to be paralysed by their past, but set themselves for the new things God has in stock for them. Paul said, "This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before." It is important to lay your past to rest, so you can make the most of the present and secure a bright future.

Page 11

Refuse to give in to past failures; rather, reach forth unto those things which are before you. Reaching forth means confronting the present, clearing the obstacles on your way and gunning for the top. Isaiah 9:10 says: The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars. You can turn every stumbling block to a stepping stone. Your best is yet to come.

Present Challenges
When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour... Isaiah 43:2-3 God means to say, "Don't let the water stop you, neither let the fire scare you. Go ahead, you can't be stopped, you can't get drowned, because I am with you." To be able to deal with present challenges, you must understand that as a covenant child, you are too much for whatever you are faced with. No challenge before you is superior to the grace of God in your life. Hear what the Bible says: There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 This is how God sees every challenge before you. Whatever you are faced with now is common. You are not the first person to encounter such a challenge, neither will you be the last. Secondly, you can count on God's faithfulness. He will not allow what is greater than you to come your way. Thirdly, there is a solution to that problem. There is a way of escape. All you need do is relax, give it the attention it requires, and you will locate the answer. See how David cleared every challenge that came his way, and arrived at his glorious destiny. He handled the lion, dealt with the bear, killed Goliath and arrived on the throne! If he had avoided any of these challenges, he would not have arrived at the throne. There are things you must deal with in order to arrive at the top. Running away or dodging them won't solve the problems or make them disappear.

Page 12

You must confront them. When Goliath appeared, the children of Israel went into hiding. Yet the Bible says he presented himself morning and evening for forty days, defying the armies of Israel (1 Sam. 17:16). Until David confronted him and brought his head down, Goliath remained an insurmountable challenge to the children of Israel. You must possess an overcomer's mentality, otherwise stagnation will frustrate you. That was David's secret. He approached Goliath in battle, counting on God's faithfulness. He declared, "The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine." And God did. Stop suffering under inferiority complex; you are superior to that challenge. Confront it, and it will give way to you. Don't stand at the entrance of your Canaan, weeping helplessly because of the giants. That will be disappointing God, because He has loaded you with what it takes to deal with them. Moreover, He knew there were giants in the land before He gave it to you. His plan is not to destroy you, but to give you victory. I see you overcome every challenge before you from henceforth, in Jesus' name.

Discouragements
This is another enemy of progress. The best way to treat it is to focus on the future. Your future is your picture. So, paint it the way you want, and stay focused on it. Let it motivate you to progress. When discouragements come, with that picture of a glorious future in your mind, you will be propelled into motion, and before you know it, you are back on your feet again. The most difficult people to discourage are those who have found a future and are focusing on it. Those easily discouraged are people who don't see anything in their tomorrow. If you must go forward in life, you must believe and live in the reality of your future and despise the present discouragements. I heard a story about President Nelson Mandela of South Africa. At age 12, he was in church one day when it occurred to him that he would some day become the president of his nation. In the midst of all the horrors he went through in prison for 27 years, his focus on his future was his strength. And it has come to pass just as he saw it! Referring to his ordeal in prison, he said he only saw himself paying the price for presidency. That is why he was never discouraged.

Page 13

God respects your imaginations (Gen. 11:6). So, go ahead and imagine your glorious future in accordance with God's Word. Then stay focused on it, till it becomes a reality. Our ministry had a financial controller from the outset, even when there was no money to count, and our monthly balance read three naira, twenty kobo. I had a picture of a very wealthy ministry that would require a financial controller, so we had one from the outset. I was living in the reality of the future, so I couldn't be discouraged by anything, and today that picture has become a reality. No year has ever met me on the same spot. It has been enlargement after enlargement. You will encounter the same from henceforth. Appreciate God for your positive past, but don't sit with it. Bury your negative past, and don't let it paralyse your tomorrow. Face the present challenges, because you have what it takes to overcome. No matter the discouragement, celebrate your future, because only people who are excited about the future make progress in life.

4. Keep On Pressing!
The crowning of all your efforts in your quest for progress is to keep on pressing. Paul said, "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:14). If you are not ready to press, you are neither a candidate for the prize nor are you qualified for progress. No matter how great your faith or how bright your vision, until you press, you don't enjoy progress. Habakkuk 2:2 says, "Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it." A lot of people love to live very relaxed lives, not remembering that everything precious comes out of pressure. Progress is sweet, but it comes through the channel of pressure. As anointed as Paul was, he had to press. He was a man of pursuit, who paid the price for progress by pressing. He emerged the greatest among the apostles. So, it's up to you to press into your dreams and desires in life. Refuse to remain on the same spot. Apply the relevant covenant forces of progress to ensure that you go forward. Remember, nothing happens until you cause it to happen. So keep on pressing, till you get to the goal set before you. Whatever your profession or vocation, God has established a destiny of glory for you. Don't tolerate stagnation; take steps that will move you forward. Be progress conscious. Whenever you notice stagnation, react against it.

Page 14

Carry out regular personal appraisals and self-examinations. You are destined for progress, don't let complacency rob you of it. Progress is never ending in the kingdom. Our destiny is to be established above all the nations of the earth. You know how far you are from achieving that. So don't relax, keep on pressing, you will get there. Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, got to a point in his life when he felt he couldn't go any further. He began to rot from then on. The Bible says he finished all that was in his heart (1 Kgs. 9:1). After building only one temple, he couldn't think of any other project, so the devil gave him enough work to keep him busy. He began to marry all manner of women, till he had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines, who turned his heart away from following God (1 Kgs. 11:3-4). Instead of building many more temples in Israel, he began building shrines for his wives. May you never finish all that is in your heart! The day you accept that you have reached your peak, you will begin to rot away. When your heart stops being enlarged towards God, death sets in. Don't give it room. Micah 2:10 says: Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction. The top is your destination, so keep moving. Before you finish one project, start thinking of another one. That is the way to stay alive and to keep moving forward. No matter my level today, I always tell myself, "I am just beginning. I am still far from where I am going." So I keep taking steps that will take me there. If you are not going forward, you will surely envy those who are. When once envy sets in, bitterness follows. And bitterness leads to hatred, which brings about death (1 Jn. 3:15). The only way to avoid that is to keep moving. Keep pressing, till you reach the mark. Anytime something tells you you have arrived, look around you, you will always find many who have gone far ahead of you. Let the success stories of such people motivate you to keep on pressing. For instance, I once read of a man, a Christian, who has an organization that has 625,000 people in its pay roll. How many people do you have on your pay roll now? The Bible says the kings of the earth came from all around to hear the wisdom of Solomon (1 Kgs. 10:24). Jesus, talking about Himself, said, "A greater than Solomon is here" (Matt. 12:42). And as the Father sent Him, so has He sent you and I (Jn. 17:18). It, therefore, means that potentially, you are greater than Solomon. The kings of the world will also come to hear your wisdom. They will gather to learn covenant principles from you. Until that happens, the race is not over.

Page 15

Also, Jesus said, "The works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do" (Jn. 14:12). Can you see how far you are from that? So, keep on pressing. As you stay in that your little kiosk selling, stay excited; because it will soon become a supermarket, and one day, you will become a manufacturer of goods, with international connections. Keep rejoicing in hope. God is set to bless you, till you become a blessing to all the nations of the earth. I see you get there, as you keep pressing towards the mark. You will make it to the top and get the prize, in Jesus' name! From now on, every week will take you a major step forward! No year will ever find you on the same spot again! Your progress will attract multitudes to Jesus! You will never experience stagnation any more forever! Peace, in Jesus' name!
