DO YOU KNOW THAT BY TELLING YOUR STORY YOU COULD BE SAVING A LIFE, AND GLORIFYING THE LORD?
By Rev Pastor Samuel F Sarpong & Evangelist Amma Bentil
Woman was the last part of God’s creation and she is special. That’s why the devil used woman. Because he saw how special her destiny was and is. Jesus restored woman back to her glory and its every woman’s role to pray for her family, be the anchor and the key to the success of her children through prayer. Today we are looking at not just women but we people as a whole. We want to Tell our story in the very near future, to confound the haters and confounders, our enemies by our success and the signs and wonders God will work through us. See its By His Grace that we live!
So we are going to travel, to conquer and get back what belong to us. Yesterday was world happy day. It’s about time we celebrated happyness and stop to take a breath. Our Father in heaven is a wealthy God, we are told there is gold lining te pavements of heaven. MY goodness did you know our Jehovah is a blingy God? With bling allover paradise, the roads are paved with gold, topaz, rubies along the paths etc. We his children are equally wealthy so let’s start to step into our greatness.
MY BROTHERS & SISTERS, START TODAY TO TELL YOUR STORY.
Why do we always say how difficult life is? Why do we always tell a sad story? Why don’t we see all the greatness surrounding us esp. in our very lives? Moses one of the greatest prophets said it’s the finger of God. It’s an act of God that we are where we are today
Moses was used to redeem God’s people yet he went thru a lot. At the age of 3 months his mother had to get rid of him, for his own protection, and guess where he ends up, in the pharaoh’s palace as a prince. Exodus 12.
http://bible.com/12/exo.12.1-12.asv And Jehovah spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household: and if the household be too little for a lamb, then shall he and his neighbor next unto his house take one according to the number of the souls; according to every man’s eating ye shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old: ye shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats: and ye shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at even. And they shall take of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, upon the houses wherein they shall eat it. And thus shall ye eat it: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is Jehovah’s passover. For I will go through the land of Egypt in that night, and will smite all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am Jehovah.
That’s why I encourage you to look deep inside and find that joy, see happiness is external BUT JOY comes from inside of us, inside our spirit and all we need to be content is to find that joy.
http://bible.com/12/php.4.4-7.asv Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice. Let your forbearance be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
As a Christian, Never allow anything to steal your joy. Learn how to let go. If someone walks away let them go. God is opening a new door for you. Whatever you do, do it for the Lord who promotes, elevates and will Reward you. Forget your boss who may be nasty, biased, fascist, racist, jealous etc. focus on serving the Lord and your joy shall be full.
Moses was a shepherd for 40 yrs and God elevated him to lead a nation. His chosen people. God knew him and said, you have been faithful for 40 yrs… Jesus. From a prince to a shepherd. God visited home as he tended his father in law sheep. God said to him today your days, of tending sheep are over….So who are you and what is your situation that God cannot change it? God sees our hard work and God is our promoter. So whatever you do. Do it with one heart and the Lord who sees all will promote you.
Remember Moses grew up as a prince in the house of pharaoh with servants for his every need. Yet he was provoked & he allowed his temper to lead him to kill a man and he ended up in exile as a lowly shepherd! For 40yrs….Jesus.
How long have you been going through your situation… 1yr, 2yrs 10 yrs??? Don’t give up. For Moses had to have cried when he remembered his life as a prince with servants tending to his every whim…now he was in the wilderness with wild animals, minding his father-in-law’s sheep…!
Most of us look on the promises of God and draw our joy and strength from within, focusing on the promises in the Word. We find strength daily to face our weekly tasks in the hope that he who brought us, to the foreign country or place we may find ourselves will finish the job.
Know that any good positive change takes time. A total turn around, something with lasting value takes time. Moses had a temper, he killed a man, God sent Moses to the land of Ord to save him from the sword of Pharaoh… he spent there 40yrs in such a lowly position, he cant have had much fun, his Father-in-law must have looked down on him and despised him…after all he made him work as a shepherd all those years! Imagine his terror at the wild animals, he must have missed the luxuries, a bed, sheets, warmth etc. Certain things don’t make sense. See Moses realised this when he was saved from being a shepherd… To someone who did signs and wonders in the name of the Lord.
At some point after his divine turn around, Moses met with Jethro his father-in-law and told him everything, the miracles God had wrought thru him, the chase thru the desert, the parting of the Red sea, the drowning of the Pharaoh and his army…all this must have been wondrous to Jethro… His respect for Moses must have grown by leaps and bounds. TELL YOUR STORY… People of God someone must tell their story, why not you.
The Lord is about to do mighty things in your life. Your delay has come to an end, he has perfected you, positioned you, your destiny awaits you. Shout out onto the Lord your God to visit you tonight as Moses on the wilderness and ended his 40yrs as a laborer. God will visit us today and end our slavery and hard labour.
People will serve God when they hear about your story, your miracles, your divine turn around. You must tell your story.
God is about to use you and I to end poverty in our backyards, to elevate our families forever, to build schools for orphans, to change someone’s story, to rebuild our communities, whatever your destiny, be ready for it. Jethro was so amazed by Moses story he wondered at his God. 👆
The same God who dealt with pharaoh and the Egyptians is dealing with our enemies today. He is dealing with them, they will fall into their own pit and drink their own portion, they will fall on their own swords, for our God never fails! He is the mighty warrior. GOD PREPARED a table for Moses in the presence of Jethro… He has promised the same for you. John 16:24 http://bible.com/12/jhn.16.24.asv “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be made full”.
What are you praying for, mayhaps you are not being specific! Today you pray for more money, tomorrow, shoes, the next day a house…? Be specific, targeted and and consistent in your prayers. And God will amplify your request to manifest. If you keep changing your request you are praying amiss
Be specific be more effectual, be more fervent and trust me God will rise for you and confirm your supplications.
What has God placed on your heart, what is your vision. Pray pray with total focus.
What is your most pressing issue. What is that thing that keeps you awake. It has become an ulcer, a thorn in your side. What is that thing. Today cry onto the Lord with total focus and see how he responds. He has said so in the scripture above.
DO it this week, Pray with Focus, Let the Lord confirm and amplify your requests and May all Glory and honour return to Him in Jesus Name.
