SCRIPTURE: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You must be patient with God to do what He wants to do with you.
Some years back, when God was helping us to build the Area 1 Church of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, the Office Complex at that time, needed about 10 Million Naira to complete it, but we didn’t have it.
So, a commercial bank approached us and offered to help us raise money to build it. All that they required of us was to let them come after the Service every Sunday and take the offerings and count them with our people until repayment was complete.
But I refused and said that the offer could not be a subject of contemplation at all, not even for a second. That was an insult. If God, Who owns it, would not build it, let it remain there.
After a short while, God provided the resources and we completed the project in His own way at his own time without borrowing a dime.
The truth is, we are not at that level now. That amount of money the Bank wanted to give us then cannot fuel our generator for one month now.
As a person, if I am to give such an amount now, it cannot be called a sacrifice.
Beloved, even though it looks difficult for you now, do not kill yourself to make it because a time is coming shortly when what used to be very difficult to achieve will become child’s play to you.
You must give God time to work on your life. You must be patient with God to do what He wants to do with you. The process God allows you to pass through is very important in the building of your life. Therefore, follow God’s process of building you with patience and allow Him to work on your life.
REMEMBER THIS: You must be patient with God to do what He wants to do with you.
- Be grateful to God and accept your level per time.
- Be contented with what you have per time.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for my current level of life and what You are doing in me. I ask for the virtue of patience to follow You until You bring Your Purpose to pass in my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
