Anyone who doesn't see what God sees becomes liability to the Kingdom- Cleric

Pastor Gabriel Owolagbon

Anyone who doesn’t see what God sees becomes a liability to the kingdom. That is why it is said in Isaiah 65:2: “I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;” the Minister in Charge of Christ Apostolic Church, Souls' Lover, Ikorodu Lagos, Pastor Gabriel Owolagbon has said.



He stated further that it is also confirmed in Psalm 95:10 that: “Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways.” 



Pastor Owolagbon noted this in his write-up tagged "Divine Agenda (Volume 2) with the topic "God's Agenda is Greater than the Expectations of Man."



In his exact words; "the greatest of our mistakes is to see the opposite of what God sees. Once this happens, there can never be anything good other than misfortune and misery. Today, it’s unfortunate to see that even believers that have been redeemed by His blood are also partakers of the world’s problems. Micah 4:12 says, “But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.”



"To be honest, if really we have everything made available in Christ then there should be a difference between those who serve Him and those outside the shore of grace. For instance, God saw a great man of god in Moses. In fact, He saw a saviour in the gentle man. But Moses himself saw a stammer and a good for nothing personality in himself. Who then was wrong-Moses or God? Can we say God is too confident of Moses who has no understanding of his true identity? Can we say Moses was too careful to launch into a ground of the impossible? This is my humble evaluation; God does not and can never make mistakes. It is, indeed, a tragic experience to see multitudes of God’s children languishing due to ignorance, carelessness and faithlessness."



"No wonder he could not end the journey well. Mind you, it’s not for sin that he had no happy landing but for the fact that he could not link up with divine agenda and purpose.
Let us consider few Bible passages:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8,9
“For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.” (Psalm 103:11)



"God sees progress in every process while man sees problems. Most times, when things go contrary to our expectations, we tend to challenge God who doesn’t understand what we are facing and what we are aspiring to achieve. Better still, God expects us to connect with the flow of grace. Because it takes what we know to flow and grow firm and grounded. The level to which a man can travel in life can never be left out of his knowledge base. So, our understanding of God’s divine agenda is the only key to attaining the height He had purposed for us through Christ our Saviour."



"Anyone who doesn’t see what God sees becomes a liability to the kingdom. That is why it is said in Isaiah 65:2: “I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;” it is also confirmed in Psalm 95:10: “Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:” 
Interestingly, God doesn’t take shortcuts or boycotts processes lading to glorification. Only man does and that makes man end up empty and unfulfilled.“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”  Proverbs 14:12. The overall plan is to make man experience and enjoy eternity. This is our longing and expectation. What we need is to be readily available for this glorious invitation into unending glorification. That is the greatest of His agenda for mankind."
