And I Pray that as the Words go forth, all of us will be blessed, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
This morning, I am going to speak briefly on this Divine Encounter: YOU ALL UNSTOPPABLE.
I want you to say it to as many People as Possible around you: I AM UNSTOPPABLE!
Because God of Beyond Expectations has released Grace to my Life, I am Unstoppable – Amen!
… Are you really saying it? What you confess is what you are going to get!
Say to your Neighbour: I am Unstoppable! God will exceed my Expectations – Amen.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will Strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will Uphold thee with the Right Hand of my Righteousness.
I have Good News for somebody here this morning inclusive those reading now : The things you imagine that are working against you, will soon begin to work for your Good – Amen.
The things that shook others will make you Stronger – Amen!
… It is a Prophecy to somebody here today inclusive those reading now
The things that Pulled others down, will become your Messenger of Advancement – Amen!
Where others have failed, you will Succeed there – Amen!
Say to your Neighbour: I am Unstoppable!
The Book of Romans 8:28 says, And we know that all things work together for Good to them that Love God, to them who are the Called according to His Purpose.
That you are still alive today is because you are Called according to His Purpose. And we are going to look at few Examples and then we begin to Pray.
We want to look at the Example of PETER:
Peter had one (1) Encounter that turned his Life around.
In the Book of Luke 5:1-11, Peter had just one (1) Encounter.
And I Strongly believe that because you were at the Convention of Beyond Expectations, you already had an Encounter with God – Amen!
… And that Encounter will turn your Life around – Amen!
When we look at the Life of Peter, according to Luke 5:1-11 – It is a well known Story.
There are few things there I want to remind us, that brought this Great Encounter of Beyond Expectations into the Life of Peter.
When Peter had that Encounter with the Almighty God, the Lord was looking for a Place to Preach to the People. When He got to the Place, two (2) Ships were there!
But He stepped into one of them and told the Owner of that boat, “can you draw it out a little, so that I can make use of it?”
And it happened to be the boat of Peter.
I know there is somebody here today inclusive those reading now on the Label of DMC, the Lord is Stepping into your boat, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
1. And because of that Encounter; He turned around Peter’s Situation.
The Bible made us to understand in
Luke 5:5: And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the Night, and have taken Nothing: nevertheless at thy Word I will let down the net.
The Encounter you had during the Convention is turning around your Situation – Amen.
… I can’t hear your Amen – Amen!
2. Not only that; Peter became a Blessing to others.
Peter became a Blessing!
When he threw his net and he had that Net-Breaking, Boat-Sinking catch of fish, the Bible says, he beckoned on the others to bring their boats to help him out.
I am Praying for somebody here this Morning inclusive those reading now on the Label of DMC, because of the Encounter you had during the Beyond Expectations Convention, Oh! you will become a Blessing to others – Amen.
I said as from now on, you will become a Blessing to others – Amen.
Because God has opened His Heaven upon your Life, His Blessings will begin to rain on you; and it will be so much that you will have to beckon to others to be Part of the Blessing, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
3. Not only that; the Encounter brought Peter Salvation.
Because it was after that Encounter that Peter suddenly realised that it was the Lord.
And the Bible says, he fell at the Feet of the Lord and said, “depart from me, I am Sinner.”
But that day, Peter received Total Salvation.
Oh! I am Praying for you: That Salvation that you need, that will take you to the Next Level of your Life, the Lord will release it unto you, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
4. Not only that: On that same Encounter, Peter came in Contact with his Destiny.
Because he thought he would die a Fisherman. But after that Encounter Jesus Christ said to him: Peter, as from now you will not be a Fisherman, but a Fisher of Men.
… He came in contact with his Destiny!
Because you attended Beyond Expectations Convention, and you are here in this Divine Encounter Service inclusive those reading now on the your Destiny will receive Life – Amen.
… I can’t hear your Amen – Amen!
You have been Struggling and battling; moving from one Place to another, toiling Day and Night without any Breakthrough;
Because you are in the Service this Morning inclusive those reading now ; get ready, God is Opening the way to your Destiny – Amen.
5. And we discovered that Peter Surrendered all to Jesus.
He caught a Boat-Sinking fish; wasn’t that supposed to be enough for Peter?
But the Bible says, Peter left all and followed Jesus.
The Lord is saying to you today, as you Surrender all to Him – Your Capital (because that is what Peter did – He surrendered his boat and that was his Capital). Not just Salvation alone, he Surrendered all – That Lord, I am at Your feet, I am following You
What happened to all the fish he caught that day? Peter Surrendered all.
He Surrendered his Business, and his Capital, unto the Almighty God. And from that day onward, Peter’s Life never remained the same again.
I don’t know what is tying you down; if you will Surrender all to Jesus, Oh! I can assure you of one thing, because He is the Almighty God, He will begin to exceed your Expectations – Amen.
Peter Surrendered all unto the Lord.
Beloved, don’t be afraid of the Political crisis: it is the Earthquake working for your Good!
Can you say that to Somebody? – Whatever Political crisis in this Nation, is working for my Good, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
You will not go down, in the Name of Jesus – Amen!
Why? Because 1 Peter 5:7 says, Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.
No matter the Economy situation, no matter the Political situation, if you surrender all to Jesus! just as Peter did; He will care for you – Amen.
And you will not go down, because the Lord will take care of you – Amen.
That’s why I am encouraging somebody this Morning – Don’t quiver on account of Troubles or Economy Storms going on in this Nation. The Almighty God cares for you! Let Him be the foundation of your Life.
You see, despite all the Economic and Financial Storms raging, God is here to make your situation calm, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
He is here to make your Testimony Richer, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
Because the Word of God says in the Book of Psalms 50:15, And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt Glorify me.
– Call upon me in the day of Economic Storm.
– Call upon me in the day of Financial trouble.
– Call upon me even when the Price of Petrol is going from one hundred (N100) to Seven hundred Naira (N700).
“Call upon me in the day or trouble.” – That’s what the Word of the Lord says.
Because you have had an Encounter with Him during the Beyond Expectations Convention, call upon Him;
He says He will take care of you! He will deliver you, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ – Amen.
Because, according to Job 22:29, when the world is saying there’s casting down; the Lord is saying there is Lifting up for you – Amen.
… Oh! I can’t hear your Amen – Amen!
Very quickly, before we begin to Pray;
WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE UNSTOPPABLE?
If you want to join the Club of the Unstoppable, what are the Characteristics to look out for?
1. They are Desperate People.
They do not pay attention to Distractions.
Unstoppable People are “Desperate People” – People who are focused on what God has laid upon their heart. They do not pay attention to distractions in their lives; they are always focused.
You must be focused!
That was what happened to Bartimaeus in the Book of Mark 10:46-52 – People wanted to distract him, but Bartimaeus refused to be distracted. He said, “Jesus Thou Son of David, have Mercy on me.”
When others were saying shut up your mouth! He said, is there any of you bearing ‘Son of David?’ I am calling on the Son of David; let Him hear me and let me hear what He is going to say!

And at the end of the day, the Lord stopped for him.
I am Praying for somebody here inclusive those reading now on the Label of DMC, the Almighty God will Stop for you – Amen.
The Lord will reach out to you to open that closed door, to open roads that the Enemies have put all kinds of Obstacles for you, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
I see you Breaking Through after this Encounter, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
2. The Unstoppable are those whose Motto is “I CAN”.
What is your Motto?
If your Motto is “I Can” Then, before the end of the Last Quarter of this Year (2023); you will be shouting Glory, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
Paul the Apostle said in Philippians 4:13; I can do (how many things)? All things through Christ which Strengtheneth me.
And I am trusting God, because you’ve joined the Club of the Unstoppable today, you too can do all things – Amen.
Oh! You are moving from Glory to Glory – Amen.
That Business will begin to boom – Amen!
Oh! That Shop that has been locked up for Months, or years, as you go back, the Almighty will open the Shop again, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
You see, they are saying “I Can” because they see Possibility and not Impossibility.
Begin to see Possibility in that situation of your Life, just like Peter. He said, “we have toiled all the Night and caught Nothing, but at Thy Word, I will let down my Net.”
Though it is impossible for fish to come around in the Morning, but at the Word You have spoken to us, there is Possibility in my Impossibility, so I can!
You too, there is Possibility in that Impossibility that has been confronting your Life – Amen!
And as you Stand Up this Morning (wherever you are right now) all impossibilities will disappear, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
3. The Unstoppable are those who are willing to Acquire what they Desire.
Like Jacob, in Genesis 32:26, And the Angel said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
On that day, Jacob Received his Blessing.
And I want to believe that some of us here are yet to be on our way back home from the Convention because we are like Jacob;
Because you are still here, the Almighty God will bless you – Amen.
So you too can join the Club of the Unstoppable this Morning, if Jesus is your Lord.
Why am I so sure? Because the Word of God says in the Book of.Psalms 113:7-9.
The Bible says:
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the Needy out of the Dunghill; That he may set him up with Princes, even with the Princes of his People. He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a Joyful mother of children.
Praise ye the Lord – Hallelujah!
Is He your Lord? Have you surrendered to Him?
Look at the Place we just read (Psalms 113:7), “He raiseth up the poor out of the dust,”
That was what He did for Peter – Peter was poor, but the Almighty God raised him up with just one Encounter.
With this Encounter this morning – I don’t know your situation (but He does). If you too would come to Him, like Peter fell at His feet, if you would surrender unto Him; you are entering into your Season of Beyond Expectations; your Season of Exceeding Expectations – Amen.
I want us to rise on our feet this Morning as we call upon Him..
Peter had an Encounter with Him and that Encounter Changed his situation, brought him into his Destiny and opened a New Chapter unto his Life.
You too have been having an Encounter with the Lord for the Past seven (7) to ten (10) days during the Beyond Expectations Convention.
And the Lord is saying, because you are still around to attend this Divine Encounter Service; He is going to open a New Chapter unto your Life – Amen.
But the Question now is: Have you Surrendered to Him?
I wish you too, can be like Peter this Morning, by making up your Mind.
Peter made up his Mind – He didn’t just have a catch of fish and run back home. He didn’t!
The Bible says, he ran to Jesus and fell at His feet.
That was how he Encountered Beyond Expectations; that was how he entered into Exceeding Expectations.
Because until he ran and fell at the Feet of Jesus, Jesus did not Pronounced the Word – “Peter, from today onwards, you will no longer be a Fisherman, you will become a Fisher of Men.”
This Morning, maybe you too you are saying: I have been hearing this Word for long. But right now I want to Surrender to Jesus Christ. I want Him to be the Lord of my Life.
This Divine Encounter, I want Jesus to have Total Control of my Life, I want the Heavens to open over me.
Wherever you are listening to us right now, inclusive all those reading now on the Label of DMC; if you are ready to Genuinely Surrender your Life to Jesus Christ, kindly Stand on your feet and we will Pray for you.
Come to Jesus now, so that you too can join the Club of the Unstoppable.
God Bless You as you decide for Christ today!
Thank You Father! Glory be to God.
Say Father; I am at Your Feet this Morning – Take me as I am, have Mercy on me, save my Life, wash me with Your Blood. Write my name in Your Book of Life.
O Lord, enlist my name with the Unstoppable this Morning; forgive my sin, wash me with your Blood.
Thank You Heavenly Father.
In Jesus’ Name we Pray – Amen.

6. My Father, my Father, Please give me a Miracle that will cancel the insult in my Life, in the Name of Jesus.

That Miracle that will cancel that insult in your Life, the Lord release it to you now, in the Name of Jesus.
The Miracle that will make everyone around you full of Wonders, receive it in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
… Receive it, in the Name of Jesus!
I Pray in the Name that is above every other names, all your Breakthroughs that have been locked up in the Camp of the enemy;
I Command the Enemy to release the Breakthrough to you, in the Name of Jesus.
I ask that the Almighty God will go ahead and fight your Battles, in the Name of Jesus!
Thank You my Father! Thank You Holy Spirit.
In Jesus’ Name we Pray – Amen.
We will now give our Offering unto the Lord.
Lift your offering to Him and say: Father; this is my Sacrifice, make me Unstoppable!
Pray that Prayer quickly.
As they give us danceable Songs, go to the nearest basket (Online) and drop your Offering.
Father, Please Sanctify our Offering; let it be used for Your Glory.
And Father we ask O God, that You will return it back to us in hundred folds, in the Name of Jesus.
We Pray O God, this Offering would be Acceptable unto You.
And all Your Children who have given unto You today (and online) you will Bless them abundantly, in the Name of Jesus.
Thank Everlasting Father! In Jesus’ Name we Pray – Amen!
SPECIAL PRAYER REQUEST:
I know there are some of you who wrote requesting that our father-in-the-Lord (Daddy GO) should Pray for you.
Probably you were told to come to this Divine Encounter Service that you would be Prayed for.
And some of us believe if Daddy GO Prays, God will answer.
I want you today to be like that Woman with the Issue of Blood – She said, I don’t even want Him to touch me. All I want is for me to touch the helm of His Garment.
And I want you to believe, the Anointing of God has been released on this Altar: that if you can touch the Clothes on this Altar this Morning, Miracles will begin to happen in your Life.
If you can get close to this Altar and cry to God; I can assure you that something Great will begin to happen in your Life – Amen.
So if you want to Pray, you can come and cry to God now! I want to believe the Anointing of God is on this Altar.
… Because my father-in-the-Lord has been Standing on this Altar for years!
Just touch the Altar and Pray; and I know you will return with a Testimony – Amen!
Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
