OUR addition must not change our commission, because the Lord is blessing us greatly, and now has finally answer our prayers, this must not change or alter our sacrificial love for Him. Knowing that the Lord will always expect more from us than what He has given us in other to bless us beyond our expectations! So your prayer should be for more assignment that will bring His heavy hands of blessings upon your life !
Also in every generation God always depend on someone that will carry His name and glory to the next generation.
This is a story of a sister working in a big firm as a senior manager, she was highly respected for her dedication and passion for her contribution to the development of the company. But all of a sudden, she has a problem with the management and she was thrown out of the company.
To her, this is the end of world, and also considering her commitment to the lord, she felt that God has disappointed her.
But after a while, her Pastor ministered to her and been suffered for almost two years in this hopeless condition and unable to get another job.
One day the same company that sacked her suddenly called her telephone line, and this is how she was miraculously restored with promotion and she became a Director.
This is amazing, you said! but not quite long after six months of this miracle, things begins to happen! she can no longer sustain her Christian life any more, she no longer have time for weekly bible study and prayer meetings, her lamp of faith start going dime, the pleasure and commitment of the world finally snuffed life out of her.
At the end she got backslide…..very sad, you said!
More often we jubilate and celebrate every answered prayers with miracles and victory in our life, but the question is this, how sincere are we to this divine provision of God in our life?……is God at fault for answering your prayers?
I hope you don’t want to disappoint Him too? Hmm…..its dangerous to do that… because, His blessing upon your life is for a purpose, will you wake up now to serve Him more for more release of His power, blessings and also because of your love for him!
Paul Apostle said, “But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one things I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
I press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus -Philip 3:7,13-14.
Will you be able to control the blessings of God in your life or the blessings will control you? Choose rightly…choose wisely….choose eternal life!
God bless you.-Dr Oyedepo G O.
