Understanding the Master Key to a World of Exploits! By Bishop David Oyedepo
Topic: Understanding the Master Key to a World of Exploits!
Welcome to another impactful week of enviable testimonies and liftings! This week, we shall focus on the topic: Understanding the Master Key to a World of Exploits!
First, we must recognise that by redemption, every child of God is ordained for exploits, not just ordinary exploits, but supernatural exploits after the order of Christ and even more. As it is written: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father (John 14:12). That means anyone who believes in Him is ordained for greater works than Christ. This is not being ambitious or over-ambitious, but it is our heritage in Christ Jesus. This is why commanding unusual exploits should not be strange to us as it is not reserved just for the privileged; it is our birthright in redemption (Acts 10:34).
What is Exploit?
As recorded in scripture, exploit is all about accomplishing things that eyes have not seen, that ears have not heard and that have not entered into the hearts of men (1Corinthians 2:9). It means global relevance and impact after the order of Isaac. For instance, in Genesis 26:12-14, we saw that Isaac was in a foreign land; yet, he went forward, waxed strong, became very great and as such, the Philistines envied him. In other words, he became the envy of the people among whom he was a stranger. This shows that, we, as the brethren of Isaac, are equally destined for exploits and accomplishments of outstanding feats. We must get done things that eyes have not seen, that ears have not heard, and that have not entered the hearts of men. That’s what exploit is all about. However, like I have always said, it’s one thing to have the key to a door and another to use it to gain access. Nothing guarantees access like having the key to a door we desire to access and using it. When we have the key, we have dominion over the door. Exploit is God’s agenda for the redeemed but if we don’t have the key, supernatural exploit is not in view.
What, then, is the Master key to a World of Exploits?
No doubt, the Word of God is the Master Key to a world of exploits. In Hebrews 11:3, the scripture says: …we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. This helps us to understand that God’s Word has inbuilt power to generate exploits. God’s Word is not only true, but it is the truth about anything and everything in life. For instance, the Word of God in Luke 5:4 was the trigger for supernatural exploits for Peter. Remember, Peter was a fisherman who was earlier frustrated because he had laboured all night and caught nothing, but when the Word of the Lord came, it turned his frustration into celebration. He experienced a net-breaking and boat-sinking breakthrough as a result of the Word of God he received, believed and worked with. While the Word of God is master key to a world of exploits, it is our spiritual understanding that empowers the Word of God to deliver in our lives. Moreover, the Word will plainly deliver only to the measure of our understanding of it, because it is understanding that converts the Word to light.This is why we cannot have light from God’s Word and not do exploits in life. Therefore, walking in the light of God’s Word is a sure way to the realm of supernatural exploits.
Certainly, anybody who got any testimony got it through the engagement of light from the Word. This, I believe, is the difference between a shining believer and a suffering one. For instance, men of insight all through scriptures were men of exploits and were distinguished from their peers. For example, concerning Joseph, Pharaoh said ‘inasmuch as God has shown you’ (Genesis 41: 39). What God shows us is what makes us a show. We need to pray for the light of God’s Word in order to command exploits like Joseph. No wonder the devil does not want us to access the light because if we do, we will be in command of supernatural exploits.
In conclusion, the world is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. But only those with supernatural light (insight) from God’s Word can manifest as sons of God by commanding unusual exploits. Therefore, as you do, I see you moving unto next levels of exploits, in Jesus’ name! However, supernatural exploits in life is not for everybody but only reserved for the redeemed! Are you born again? If you are not, this is an opportunity to do so. Simply say the following prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Today, I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now, I know I am born again!
