Are You Called In His Ministry?
Those that are called in His ministry do not need money, THAT’S RIGHT! for all they need is the anointing of the Holy Spirit for the Lord will provide for them. If it is your ministry you will need lots of money to run that ministry and you will have to use every method to raise money to even pay for that ministry. You will have to use every means possible to fund that ministry ie. Use the false prosperity message, tele evangelism, and even in boxing people on FB asking for help to feed your ministry, asking people for building funds during every single service, seeing every person as a potential offering, preaching money from December to December etc. If it is His ministry then He is the one in control of its future, where you shall go and how it will expand. The Lord is the church planter and He knows exactly where He wants His anointing to be poured out whether it is under a tree or under a tent or in a build or in a home. See you can have a big build that has the absence of the Holy Spirit because it has become your ministry and has not been surrendered over to the Lord and His perfect will. The Lord will do a far better job than us if we just surrender over our ministries back to His perfect will. He promised in His word that it is according to His will and power to do more than we ask or hoped for. Ephesians 3:20 ”Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,” The Lord will never forsake His righteous servants especially those that trust Him and surrender their ministries back to Him. Psalm 37:25 “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” A servant of God does not need to beg and should be satisfied in every circumstance that they are faced with just like Paul (Phil 4:12), trusting God for His perfect will to be accomplished. As my Bishop says, The Lords work done in His way will never lack His support. The Lord can do a far better job than us in providing for His ministry, so let us return to doing it His way. He is faithful and just like the old hymn was written we shall sing “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see All I have needed Thy hand hath provided; Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
