One awesome thing I have come to love about God, is how He gives us astounding and seemingly impossible assignments. A while back, I had a conference to host in the University – when they brought the budget to me, it was 850k (Now, that may not be much to you, if it isn’t, just hiss and skip this paragraph)- this was in 2017 and for me it was HUGE. I had no sponsor, no rich person attached to the ministry. All I had was a word from God, and an army of young men and women who believed in the vision. These guys are the real heroes.
And oh, they could pray, they could fast, they could sing, they were bold, they could fight and they would go everywhere! But they had no money. They were my mighty men, like David’s men they would give all they had but it didn’t include cash, because they really didn’t have much of it. Oh, they gave, but it was in trickles. And I love them for it. I knew they went on because I said we will have the program, they believed simply because I did. How often, is the faith of others dependent on you MOG? God has spoken and the world must say, Amen! In planning meetings, I insisted money must be spoken about last, and never in negativity. We would confess and I would smile, shake them and tell them – the kingdom of Light is invading their campus. Amen!
But while alone, I will constantly ask God, Lord, ‘How’, I am not saying you aren’t going to do it but like Mary asked in Luke 1:34, ‘“Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”, How, oh Lord! But the answer of God has always been the same, THE HOLY GHOST. For every how, there is the Holy Ghost. He is the answer of God to every seeming impossibility we face. See, Luke 1:35, “And the angel answered and said unto her, The HOLY GHOST SHALL COME UPON THEE, and the POWER OF THE HIGHEST SHALL OVERSHADOW THEE: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Emphasis Mine)God’s holy thing, our ministry vision is only birthed by God. What God gives, God births. He pays for what He orders for. And He came through at THUG INVASION 1.0, and many others that followed. This is not because I trusted Him, but because He is Faithful. It will only take God to fulfil a God Vision, and He is too faithful to fail.
Dear Minister, Ministry is about God’s instructions, and sometimes an important attribute of God’s instructions is impossibility- How can this be? You will always have that moment. How will the hall be paid for? How will this church be filled? How will I fulfil the call of God? How will miracles happen? How will I attain that level of grace and gifts?
Dear, God! The answer is so simple yet we miss it because we want the spectacular. But sometimes God is just in the ordinary. I mean, how can the answer to questions that wrecks your nerve and keep you from sleep be so simple, The Holy Ghost. Ridiculous? No, ‘GODculous’
The next time you face an ‘How Moment’ – remember you have the Holy Spirit. He is the answer for all ages, situations and times. Will He show up for you? Yes, absolutely! Have confidence – why? Because it is not your name on the line, it is His. Never think it’s personal – It is all about Him. Its God work, and it will never fail. Never! For when He speaks, the Holy Spirit moves to ensure a performance.
I found this in scriptures and it always inspires and encourages me, “Seek and read from the book of the LORD: Not one of these shall be missing; none shall be without her mate. For the mouth of the LORD has commanded, AND HIS SPIRIT HAS GATHERED THEM”. Isa 34:16. Dear Minister, let this be instructive for you – in your tunnel walk, remember He is gathering the promises and it’s all going to work. I hope this 16th letter helps you find courage and trust in God. He Knows. He Cares. He is Working. He is gathering. It will pan out well. Grace to you. Amen!
Your Greatness is Assured
