Ministering: Elder Dr. Oyetola Olufemi

Texts: Galatians 4:1 (“Now I say, that the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all.”) ; 1st Corinthians 13:11 (“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things”.)


  • Growth is a progressive change of status from childhood to adulthood stage; Luke 1:80 (And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit…)
  • Growth implies increase and it is also time-bound.
  • When you refuse to grow, you cannot manifest in the kingdom. Galatians 4:1 (Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, different nothing from a servant…)
  • Until you grow, some things will never happen.
  • The first stage of growth is to be born
  • Growth is meant to be continuous
  • As long as the breath of God is in you, you will grow
  • To get fresh breath of God, you need to present yourself clean and blameless before him
  • You also need to come close to God so as to get fresh breath

Emblems of growth:

  • You only speak when God asks you to; Hebrews 13:5-6 (…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.)

Force of growth:
The authentic force of growth is the PRESENCE OF GOD. Acts 10:38 (How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.)
