Becoming a person of affluence and influence
Fulfilling your purpose
by Pastor Nnamdi Odimegwu

Everything that God created was designed for a purpose – to solve problems.
God’s creations were created to solve a problem. Man should be a problem solver. Challenge is, not everyone knows the problem they are supposed to solving.
What problems am I designed to solve?
Your ability to locate them determines the fulfillment of a man’s purpose.
A lot of people run away from problems, hence the lack of fulfillment of their purpose.
Jesus, in 3 year, fulfilled his purpose. This means that He spent time analysing the problem of the universe!
Daily, Jesus went to the temple to study about his purpose. Jesus analysed his purpose for 30 years; he was looking at solving a universal problem.
“Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me) to do thy will O God.”
Heb 10: 7; Psalm 40:7
Jesus came for a reason, and that reason was to fulfill the Scriptures (Luke 4:18).
There is a way God guides his people. There is a word for you. Eph 4:11-13; Gal 4:1-3.
Until maturity, children are put under tutors.
After Jesus finished reading about himself from Isaiah 61:1, the eyes were fastened on Him to proof what he had read (Luke 4:`19).
What was the purpose of Jesus?
John 10:10 – to give men life and life more abundantly.
1 John 3:8 – to destroy the works of the devil.
And for 3 years on earth he was destroying the works of the devil.
How to be a person of influence:
1. To become a person of influence and make impact, you must recognize problems, because problems gravitate towards the solution provider.
When you decide not to solve a problem, you forfeit a life of influence.
2. Wealth, money, increase all lie behind problems, because they know that it is the only thing people run away from. Therefore, people are rewarded only for solving problems. The one who solves the problems is rewarded.
3. Anyone that chases after money is chasing after an illusion. Money is a reward given to people to render services.
Don’t pursue money, pursue solutions to problems. Render help, render services, find a way to help. Solve a problem.
Those who never see problems will never make an impact in the world.
When you see a need and meet a need, you are rewarded.
4. The bigger the problem you solve, the bigger the reward you receive.
Solve small problem, get small reward.
The earth is looking for problem solvers.
The day you look beyond situations and become God’s answer to meeting a need, the earth and everything God created will converge to reward you.
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Rom 8:19
Jesus was rewarded for the service that he rendered to the creature, he was given a name above every other name, “that at the name of Jesus, every knee must bow, in heaven on earth,…”
The more you solve problems, the more the universe empowers you with resources to solve more problems.
Why do you need money?
What problem are you solving?
What role can I play in changing the situation. And when you begin to ask that question, God says, I have found a man, and gives you an idea.
The reason you are where you are right now is to do something significant.
May God strengthen you to fulfill your purpose in Jesus name.
