Help me hear you Lord always not just when i think convenient for me
I am not sure about you but we need to really sit up as believers in our walk with God and also stand in the gap for the church. The world has no issues diversifying the magnitude of its havoc but then the church is being turned into a cover for many us and no longer the covering which the blood wrought.
- We do not take care of our families (covering)and then we come and pay tithes (cover) and pick up announcements on the alter.
- We sleep with fellow married and unmarried brethren and then usher people into pews on service days with holy smiles
- We lie and gossip and then pick up the microphone and close our eyes in worship ministrations
- …….. the list is endless
Service will never replace the Foundation that stands sure” they that name the name of the Lord must depart from evil
I receive grace in Jesus name. Receive yours
People blame you for the change they started.
Learn from people’s stories/lives. Do not copy it. No one is asking you to live another person’s life
Anything that overcomes you, keeps you in bondage (2P2:19)
I had one of those mornings.
There I was tussling and turning on the bed wondering why I am up without my alarm ringing. Plain out sneaky. I tried to sleep but kept looking at the time.( Now I know waking up every morning has nothing to do with the clock and phone alarms but mercy).
It dropped in my spirit to check my sisters phone to be sure that I am not lagging. Oh my? when I check, I flung myself off the bed and dashed to the washroom. Thank God I had already picked out the dress for this new working day last night. Before anyone could notice I was out of the washroom and got dressed liked yesterday. I checked the clock and it was obvious that the bus had left me and I had to wait for the next ones and get ready to be late to work.
There was a stillness in me that made me not to rush. I just kept thanking God and in my head calculated all scenarios to get to work at a cost saving. By the time I got to the bus stop I saw my fellow “bus-destination-goers” still there. We waited for a while and that particular bus was delayed. I got into the next one that came. It was not the best route but I knew how from there to find myself to work. Finally I got to work on TIME. YOOOUPPIIEEEEE. My phone by some error I can’t even explain backed itself by 1 hour and I had no idea. The Holy Spirit woke me up and even nurged my spirit to check the time. He knew the bus will be late and wanted me to catch extra sleep.
Now I know that all works for the good of they that love God. That in everything we should give thanks and that no matter the situation we should speak what we want to see and not what is happening. The power of positive words can not be over rated. My point is no matter what is happening in your life or in the world around you, learn to be still and let Him make all good in time( it might as insignificant as saving me from getting late to work which i am still grateful). I am learning to be still. This experience really boosted my faith. Hope it does yours too
