Faculty members of Covenant University have been charged to connect with the reality of bible-based faith if they desire to do exploits in their professional and spiritual calling. The charge was laid out by the Chancellor and Chairman, Board of Regents of the University, Dr. David Oyedepo, on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, when he delivered a lecture titled ‘Unveiling the Invincible Power of Faith’.
Dr. Oyedepo told the gathering that bible-based faith was a mystery that operated from the heart, which connected man to the realm of the spirit, but the inherent force was unleashed through the instrumentality of the tongue.
He noted that, as far as God’s kingdom was concerned, faith was key to everything and whatever God could do, faith could make happen any day, any time and anywhere in as much as an individual was able to open up his heart to receive and act on whatever was received.
The Chancellor stated that faith, as a kingdom mystery, carried the inherent capacity to command supernatural results, subdue nations in any field of human endeavours and incapacitate the fear of death. He averred that operating in the consciousness of bible-based faith would always secure the Hand of God towards engendering speed in the accomplishment of any given task, provoking supernatural intervention, unknotting complex matters and delivering unbelievable and outstanding result.
Dr. Oyedepo posited that faith, in its very essence as a mystery, was irresistible, unstoppable, ever-prevailing, ever-winning, ever-conquering and exploits-generating in effect. According to him, “Faith is a universal currency, with the same purchasing power in all nations of the world.”
Espousing the mystery of faith to the gathering, Dr. Oyedepo posited that faith was not a religious theory, but a kingdom mystery laden with unexplainable power at the behest of the believer. He said that faith was neither a belief system, principle nor a religious philosophy, but a spiritual weapon and force. “Faith is being fully persuaded of the truth, the prevailing circumstances notwithstanding, until the truth prevails,” he added.
Furthermore, he stated that faith, being an unstoppable force in the world of the spirit, could not be hindered from attaining set objectives, because whatever could not stop the advancement of God, could not stop the way against faith.
He counselled scholars in the gathering to be mindful of faith being the master-key to the world of unlimited possibilities, even as the University continued her drive towards Vision 10:2022. He noted that the mystery of faith conveyed the capacity of turning darkness to light, natural to supernatural, defeat to victory, captivity to liberty, crisis to peace, and death to life.
The Chancellor was speaking at the annual Executive Advance programme of the University, which has become a veritable platform for setting the academic agenda of each calendar year for the University. The theme for the 2019/2020 academic session of the University is ‘In Pursuit of Vision 10:2022’.
