The Haven Convention, held in Lagos at the LoveWorld Conference Centre. People from many different countries from all over the world were in attendance to hear Chris Oyakhilome preach. The Word came from the Holy Spirit that we as followers of Jesus Christ are to lengthen our “lengthen our cords and strengthen our stakes” for the new outpouring that God has in store for his people.
Haven members were reminded that God wants them to continue their passion in regard to their unique calling referencing Psalm 33:12. The verse says that the nation will be blessed whose people chose God as their Lord as He has chosen them for His own inheritance.
People of Nigeria
The people were also reminded to pray for the leaders of the world, primarily the men and women who are in authority so that the Word of God can be forthcoming and spread among mankind without hindrance. Pastor Chris also spoke about the clarity of purpose that Christians must have in regard to the Word of God which encourages a superior way of life.
Essentially our purpose is set before us by the Lord, but many people fail to carry out their purpose because they are too easily distracted and are not focused on what God has set before them. We should be burning with the passion of the Holy Spirit and let Him guide us as it says in the Word of God.
Finally, attendees were reminded that promotion comes from above, and that all followers of Christ should lead their lives in accordance with the scriptures which remind us to focus on the path that the Holy Spirit has laid out before us.
