I HAD JUST ESCAPED POVERTY AND I DID NOT WANT TO GO BACK TO IT
When my Father-in-the-Lord mentioned to me, after he returned from a trip to Israel, that God told him to ordain me, MY WIFE AND I FASTED FOR FOURTEEN DAYS, praying that God would not let that happen.
At that time, my MONTHLY SALARY was more than the ENTIRE INCOME of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. I had just escaped poverty and I did not want to go back to it.
Today, I thank God that He didn’t answer that prayer – NOT BECAUSE OF PROSPERITY, BUT BECAUSE OF THE JOY OF SEEING HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE BLESSED.
Occasionally, what GOD has for your life may CONTRADICT everything you want, but He is your MANUFACTURER, He made you for a certain purpose and whether YOU BELIEVE it or not, fulfilling that purpose is the best thing that can ever happen to you.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
There are certain things MONEY CANNOT BUY.
Don’t interfere with God’s plan for your life, let HIS WILL be done. Be like David who said in Psalm 31:15:
My times are in thy hand…
Father, my times are in your hands, Lord. Do with me as you please and help me to fulfill your plans for my lives in Jesus name.
NOTE THAT YOU CAN NEVER FULFILL THE PLANS OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM THROUGH HIS SON “JESUS CHRIST”.
If you want to fulfill God’s plan for your life, give your life to Jesus and pray that God should forgive you all your sins, that you believe and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour and you will serve Him forever in truth and in Spirit.
MAY THE LORD HELP YOU TO FULFILL HIS PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE IN JESUS’ NAME.
