God told me that the reason He put me through a year of training was because I must follow His voice and the purity of the blood of Jesus at all times.
I must not have a fear of people, judgement, rejection or lack. That I can’t change my tune just to please people or their expectation of me. I must not be afraid of what people think if I am to live by the pure power of the Holy Spirit.
For awhile the Lord told me to ask one Christian sister to sow into my ministry. She did not reply after many messages (each one which the Lord led me to write). Now of course I felt that I was being annoying, any person would think that, but I had to obey God.
Sometimes the amount was way more than I’d ever ask and she could probably afford to give that amount.
However, her reply was “uh no”.
So after many ignored messages she said that if she felt led, she would give but to stop messaging her about it.
Of course I was a bit offended, why didn’t she just say no instead of ignoring 10 messages? So I told her the truth about how I felt.
God asks me to do things that feel inconvenient and uncomfortable because He says “you can’t have a fear of men if you are to be spirit led”.
He might ask you to do crazy things, and at times, that door will open.
But if you don’t listen you’ll never know, you’ll always live behind the door.
Recently someone wanted to sow $10 from South Africa but she didn’t have the right mode to do it or the fees were more than $10.
So I just said, it’s fine just pray for me.
But the Lord say “ask her to make it happen”.
So I told her. I also prophesied that she would need PayPal to receive money for her paintings.
That she needed to create the right channels for money to flow in and out, that it was not just for me, but for God to bless her.
She said “you’re right. The key to breakthrough is perseverance”.
I said that God has taught me the importance of not giving up when it comes to small things, even if God asks you to sow $1 or $2, He is not asking because it’s so hard for Him to get $2 to me- He is asking because Everything matters to Him.
“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.” Luke 16:10
A lot of people say “when I’m rich then I’ll give”, but God is looking at how faithful you are in little things.
Do you clean the house He already gave you? How about the car He gave you? How about the people He gave you? Do you speak life to them or do you abuse them?
You want a large congregation but do you love those He already gave you? Do you give when you don’t have much? Do you care for the rental He gave you? Because He knows that if money has you in its grip, it’ll have you living in fear when you have much more. It’s not about how much you have but how much you’re willing to trust God as a provider.
He says – Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you[assuredly not]!”
What He is saying is – hey don’t rely on the money, rely on the fact that I will never leave nor forsake you.
God has also taught me that sometimes He asks someone to sow so they can learn to be spirit led themselves and to say no if God isn’t saying to do so.
And that I would still love them anyway.
Because a lot of people don’t understand a love that accepts no’s.
In this season I feel that the breakthrough for you and I are found in knocking until the door opens. Even if for me it’s asking people to sow into their own financial breakthrough and to break themselves out of the fear of lack.
I sense we are walking into the biggest breakthroughs in our whole life so far!
