THE CHALLENGES AND THE OPPORTUNITIES OF COVID 19

 VICTORY LIFE WORLD CONVENTION

Preacher: Pastor Femi Emmanuel

TOPIC: SHINING DESPITE COVID-19 

Text: John 1: 5, Isaiah 60: 2, Exodus 10: 22-23, John 10: 10

There must be a difference between those who know God and those who do not know God. If your connection with Christ does not bring a change to your life something is wrong with you! There should be a difference between light and darkness. John 1:5, “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

There are two aspects of Jesus Christ: HIS LIFE AND HIS PRINCIPLES. There should be an exemption about you. It takes darkness for light to be better recognized and appreciated. The economic darkness, covid-19 darkness is for us to be better seen and appreciated. Exodus 10:22, “And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.”

Therefore take full advantage of this season. Covid-19 has taught us to wait on God for directions and inspirations. Challenges are opportunities to do things better in life. Covid-19 should not shut you down, it should lift you up.! Covid-19 has led people into dealing with the essentials. Do not look at the challenges that Covid-19 has brought but look at the opportunities. Whatever you struggle to do that brings glory and results, do it more.

You need a key that is different from other keys if you want to open doors meant for you during this season. Focus on the essentials; some people need to change their strategies and packaging. Some people need to change their business locations. Go for trainings; put your ministries online; put your business online. Many have become millionaires via internet. Not through scams, but through legitimate businesses. You must seek for knowledge daily; you must improve on your services. 2Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
