It is yet another opportunity in the land of the living to gather on this platform of spiritual convocation as a Diocese. We cannot help but bless the name of the Lord first for inspiring the vision that led to this convocation, for granting the needed divine provision, human and material to pursue it and for preserving all of us to run with the vision.
This convocation affords us the opportunity in a spiritually charged atmosphere to exercise our authority over the forces contending against us.
To triumph is have a GREAT or IMPORTANT VICTORY. It has to do with GREAT SUCCESS or ACHIEVEMENT. To triumph is to experience ACHIEVEMENT; it has to do with ACQUIREMENT, ATTAINMENT, SUCCESS AND ACCOMPLISHMENT. To CONQUER, PREVAIL and WIN.
We are not created to be LOSERS. We must reject the spirit of AVERAGE because this is not the intent and purpose of God for us as a Nation, a State, a Church, Diocese, family and of course individuals. Jesus secured our victory over principalities, power, spiritual wickedness in high places and rulers of darkness when He shed His blood for us at Calvary and died for us. His rising on the third day was a TRIUMPH over satanic agenda.
It is this triumph that we gather to demonstrate on annual basis in this assembly. That you are here in itself is a triumph over the devil in the last one year, to do exploit in same regard, again, we must put our faith in God and be expectant.
I beseech all of us therefore to join our faith together in one accord on this mountain believing in God so that He will establish us in TRIUMPH and believing the various prophets appointed to minister to us in the course of this year s convocation so that we might prosper indeed (2 Chro 20:20).
Israel triumphed over the Egyptians – Exodus 15:1.
David triumphed over Goliath – 1 Samuel 17:52.
Jesus triumphed over demons – Colossians 2:15
Pray that neither enemy nor any satanic circumstances shall triumph over you – Psalm 25:2; 41:2; 2 Corinthians 2:14; Colossians 2:15.
IT IS YOUR TURN TO TRIUMPH
