Sunday 7th April 2019 Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- Isaiah 34:1-17
Topic:- Wait, It Won’t Be Long
Text:- Isaiah 34:8
Where are all those Nigerian young Ministers that went to that mountain in Ghana some years ago and a Native Doctor washed their eyes? And they came back and started Prophesying? Giving accurate Prophecies? Calling phone, account and vehicle numbers accurately? Pastors were struggling to host them? Their diaries were filled up from January to January!
As you are reading this now, many of them have closed down that ministries! I know few of them that are in mental homes now! If you remove the chains on their legs and hands now, you will see them feeding from the dustbins!
Some of them are still hanging around, but their juju has expired! Those that used to host them cannot even shake their hands again, because the secrets of their powers have been exposed!
Some of them have died! Painful enough, they died with charms inside their suits and buried inside their pulpits!
Oh Lord, have mercy on my speeding – to – damnation generation of young preachers who loves glory but hates process!
Few of them are still in town. But go close to those cathedrals they built those days, nobody comes there again.
Men that used to command thousands no more see 20 people to preach to. Because juju has failed them. Those that used to call them Prophets are now calling them Puppets. Those that use to call them daddy are now calling them Paddy. Satan has abandoned them, disgraced them and ran away.
But some of those who stood the pains of process and did not create shortcut out of the burdens of their ministry. Nobody hosted them then because they were not doing gymnastics on Pulpits. Some of them were not giving accurate prophecies.
People said they were not anointed because women were not passing out fibroid in their services. They saw demonic mountains. They saw mami water. They lacked money. They lacked members. But they said: IF WE PERISH WE PERISH!
But today, they have not perished. Instead, God has started paying them back for their seeds of perseverance and contentment.
Can I beg you to beg that young Minister who is preparing to go and join them to sell his soul to Satan, to control crowd and wealth. Tell him that there is no road in Egypt. Amalek cannot make you a king.
Tell them to celebrate the rough journey. Tell them to be happy while preaching to empty seats. Drinking garri is a passage to eating salad. Don’t throw away your confidence which has great recompense.
If there is any man anywhere controlling crowd without juju. If there is anybody Prophesying without the help of Native Doctor. If there is any man genuinely blessed without burying anything in his Church. If God has ever done it for any man. That same God will do it for us.
We might still not have money to print Posters and Handbills. We might still Preach to few uncommitted Members.
But one thing we know is that. It will not be long, Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field. And then, the heathen left about us will confess that our God has done great things for us.
1. Oh Lord God, help me to wait upon You henceforth and let my miracle surface, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I refuse to go diabolical, help me to remain in You only throughout my entire life, henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Renew my strength in You oh Lord God, as I wait upon You henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Happy Lord’s Day!
