Summary: Many loved to be used by God , they loved to be carrier of His presence and power , they want to become a man and woman of authority, but many are not ready to pay the price .
St. John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
Many loved to be used by God , they loved to be carrier of His presence and power , they want to become a man and woman of authority, but many are not ready to pay the price .
In a particular church , they were having committee meeting , so they were asked to discuss the things that are affecting the church both physically and spiritually and a brother rose up and talk for almost an hour addressing the problem that are affecting the church , after he finished talking , the senior pastor suggested that they should go into serious fasting and prayer for the REVIVAL of that church ,but that brother that talked for almost an hour responded “Me I don't joke with my stomach oo”.
There are many like this brother , they can talk about the mistakes of other ministers, while they themselves are not ready to pay the price for REVIVAL, so talking and talking can never be a solution to any spiritual problem , steps needed to be taking .
Of course we are what we are by the grace of God , but you need to understand that there are price we have paid to be what we are today , so there are price to be paid to be what God want you to become tomorrow , the price of entire consecration and absolute holiness .
At times you will work against yourself if you do not know yourself and the worse enemy is yourself, you need to seek the face of God to know why you are created , I still remember I always throw myself to God's arm in prayer and fasting to know His plan for my life and He reveal Himself to me and showed me His glorious plan.
So at times you will walk contrary to what God has destiny you to be if you don't know who you are, in the junction of destiny fulfilment the most important question that you need to ask yourself is “Who am i, why am I here , Lord what do you want me to do“
This is the beginning of everyone that is been used by God , they discover the purpose why they were sent into the world like their Lord and master “John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
The purpose of everyone been called is to “ Rescue the perishing and care for the dying “ this is the ultimate purpose of your calling , we are not called to be a prosperity preacher , we are not called to pursue wealth and fame ,but to rescue the lost and bring them to the narrow way .
Have you ever sit down to think and asked yourself “why did God called me “ the moment you forget the purpose why you are called and forget the priority of your calling , then you are embarking on a dangerous journey .
You are called by grace , there are many that are praying to be called but they were not , so despite the fact that you are called by grace does not mean that there are not price to be paid to be an effective ministers and weapons in God's hand .
When you see a servant of God shining for the Lord , pulling down satanic altars , going about doing good , setting the Captive free, rescuing sinners from the Broadway that lead to destruction and bringing them to the path of eternal life , prevailing over the gate of hell and enlarging or populating the kingdom of His Lord and savior , there are price he has paid behind the pulpit , he is not an angel , he didn't fall from heaven , he was not born that way, it is by grace but yet paid the price of holiness , consecration, discipline and prayer .
Have you discover who you are ? Statistics tells us that 95% of Christian didn't know God's plan and purpose for their life , it is one thing to know that God's plan for you is great , but have you actually known that great thing , have you seen who God has destiny you to be ? If No don't stop praying until you discover His plan for your life .
I see it necessary to start this series of teaching with this valuable instruction of knowing who God want you to be , after which in our next study we will be addressing what you must know and the price those who are used by God paid .
