TWENTY SIX YEARS IN FULLTIME GOD’S WORK (July 21, 1994-2020)
Dear people of God, kindly join me in my victory shout and praise dance. July 21st, marks my 26years in God’s fulltime work.
God indeed have been faithful. Who would have thought I will follow HIM this far?
Many times I gave up but HE never ever gave up on me!
I’m all emotional as I remember the drama of how HE delivered me from secular society. How when I was at wits end, HE miraculously crossed me over my red sea.
When I balked at going forward because I was afraid of the unknown, HE led me through the wilderness, to help me lose my fears and look to HIM alone.
In the wilderness, I was so lost. I had no sense of direction. But HE kept leading, guiding, prompting, protecting, healing, and providing for me through the wilderness journeying.
Then HE took me through the valley experience, in a missionfield that is physically located in a valley. I survived those years absolutely by His grace and faith.
God believed in me even when I was zero on self-esteem.
He kept loving me when I was filled with self-hatred, and flogged myself for my sins.
He taught me how to forgive and stop flogging myself for my mistakes. He caused all things to work together for my good, cause I Iove Him, and I’m the called according to His purpose.
He accepted me in the Beloved and restored me even though I was rejected, unwanted and unfriendly.
His mercies and grace would overwhelm me, until I learned that He is working in me both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
No one can ever love me like my God and Father.
In the fullness of time, HE took me out of the valley and set me on the mountain top!
HE is a faithful God! There is none like Him.
PAPA GOD, I’m grateful for your live, and for your call upon my life.
Answer that call to Service:
Dear child of God, today, when you hear His call, run to obey Him.
From my childhood, my parents let me know that I was set-apart from the womb for service to God.
But my greatest challenge was that all the ministers I knew while growing up, were very poor. I hated poverty so I refused to answer God’s call.
I chose instead to do secular work and get rich! I worked hard, but it was never enough.
God who is patient, allowed time and chance to put me in a very tight corner, until I chose to walk in my calling.
Can you fight your Maker? Where can you run from His Presence?
If you are called to God’s Work and you are still toying with the idea, everything will keep falling apart until you yield.
After you yield, it gets better. You start eating the good of the land. (See Isaiah 1:19)
However, if you are passing through challenges in the course of service to God, consider it ‘on the job training’. Its a none issue. Learn the lesson and move on.
The faster you learn the lesson in the sufferings or challenges, the quicker you move to the next levels of assignment.
Persevere in your service to God. He rewards diligence. You and your bloodline will enjoy blessings for a thousand generations. (See Deuteronomy 7:9) Shalom!
