IF YOU SENSE THE CALL OF GOD 4
I was already at that point where I was concluding that I would settle in Lagos or Ibadan (a city) and travel to Eruwa once in a while.
I assumed that once the ministry in Eruwa grows, I will then relocate to Eruwa fully to do the work.
What was the basis of my decision? Fear! The biggest of them all was: How will I pay my bills?
If you sense the call of God, one thing you need to begin to groom now is a heart that trusts in Him absolutely.
Trust Him in little things because you will need it for tougher times. Trust is learnt and mastered. It is not grown overnight.
There are called people stuck behind bank counters. There are people meant to be pushing kingdom agenda pushing files. There are kingdom advocates speaking before human judges.
The reason is not far fetched- FEAR! If you trust mere mortals to take care of you by paying your monthly wages- How much more your heavenly father?
I am talking to those who know they are meant to be in ministry- sold out totally to it- be afraid but do not disobey!
And if you know that you are graced to combine both career and the calling, then know that the calling is more important than the career. Let no one pass through you without a touch of the kingdom.
Start building your trust walk- Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
Ministry is not business. You can get a needed gift and God places a demand on it right on the spot- You need to trust Him!
You will travel to preach and return with just a Thank You Note and there are needs at home- you need to trust. If you grumble, you fail. You can get home and God picks the bill.
Start building your trust! Stop all these carnal calculations.
Do you trust God more than your fears?
