That Testimony Bishop Oyedepo Always Talks About: The Inside Story
“I joined my organization - Property Max Investment Limited - in the year 2008 as a Youth Corps member. The office is on Akiode in Ojodu, Berger, Lagos. I actually prayed first before I joined the company but at that time, I would have falsified the age on my C.V so as to be able to do my Youth Service in a bank as most people will always prefer, but I chose not to and I said just like Bishop Oyedepo would always say “Whatever God can never give me may I never have it.” Since I was redeployed to Lagos, I had to look for where to do my Youth Service and so I chose to wait upon the Lord for Him to settle me,” he told our reporter.
“They told me that the last copper they needed had been taken. However, they were not direct about it; they asked me to come again,” he continued.
“So I embarked on a three-day prayer and fasting, believing God that the next time I appear there they will accept me,” he said with a note of conviction.
“One day I went to meet an NYSC Official that God has divinely arranged. He was one of the people in charge of posting in Lagos so I decided to visit him in his house and when I was there he was telling me that there were some organizations seeking to get corps members. In the process I met a young guy who was working with Property Max Investment Limited. He had been working there before he went for Youth Service.”
“The NYSC official introduced me to the young man and the young man said, ‘Guy, if you want to serve in our company there is nothing there o but there is a future there.’ I said ‘Future,’ that is the key and not about the size of the company but the future in the place.”
“I got the name of the company, and I also took the names of other organizations that were looking for coppers, and I prayed about them and God told me to choose Property Max. I decided to go there and when I got there, God said 'yes, this is the place, stay here.'They were having a meeting when I got there. When they finished the meeting, something unusual happened; that was when I got to know that God really ordered my footsteps there.”
“Later, the M.D sent for me and said, “You know what, I have heard a lot about you so there is nothing you have to tell me. Are you here just to be collecting clearance letters every month because I heard you have your own business too or you want to work, let me know?”
“I said ‘God asked me to come here and work so I can learn.’ So he said ‘if that is the case, there’s work to do. That office, you will be resuming there from tomorrow and you will be kick-starting the Accounting department of this organization. Now you can start. That was how I started,” he said with a glow on his face.
“God told me there was a problem in the financial department and that I should inform the M.D that He has instructed us to go on a three-day fasting and prayer.”
“So, I got to the office the next day and I told my M.D and he said, “You and the other workers can fast but as for me I will not because I have ulcer.”
“And I told him, Sir, if you have such a problem, as far as I am here that trouble will stop.”And God is still a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him because while “they were yet praying and fasting,” answer was on the way.
“Before the end of the fasting and prayers, things started changing for good,” he enthused with an expected lighted facial expression.
“After the first 3-day prayer and fasting exercise and the speedy results that followed, management decided to raise the bar; we embarked on a 7-day fasting and prayers, and then graduated to 21days of prayers fasting. After then, there was an explosion!”
“One day, my boss called me and said ‘Niyi, you have served me well and God has laid it in my heart that it’s time for you to move on’. I was surprised so I asked if I had offended him. He answered in the negative but asked me to pray about it”
“I spoke with Bishop David Abioye and Bishop Aremu together with Mummy Abioye and they said if it was God then He had a special plan for me’. I went to my boss and I agreed to resign.”
“He handed over to me an estate and gave me two partners to work with me. He also gave me the Range Rover Sports car I had been using as my official car.”
