3 Years of God’s faithfulness in Full Time Ministry.
Wow, Just like yesterday, on this day in the Year 2017 I accepted the call into full-time ministry immediately after NYSC, a tough decision but a destiny decision.
I have loved to be a pastor as a young boy but not to be a full-time pastor, who will not work with his certificate and but depend on God as his source for everything.
I was about rounding up my BSC program when I began to cry to God for His purpose and plan for my life, even though I had my ambitions yet I wanted to know the mind of God for me, One of those days, I heard the Lord thundered to me, He said to me, It is in full-time service for me that will make you birth sons in the Kingdom, I was scared.
He said he is calling me into full-time ministry.
Mind you, my head is not dull neither am I not intelligent, by the grace of God, I am a graduate with second class upper division, came to serve in Lagos state.
Won 5 awards and recommendations, from NYSC lagos, MPR, Ministry of youth and social development, Ministry of Education, had 3 Job Referals and opportunities but yet the Lord said I am your employer, I am committed, I am capable and I am responsible.
He said I should follow him with all my life and He will make me wonder,
I can tell you it is not easy, That Ekiti boy, Who grew up in both ondo and Ekiti state.
The firstborn from a family of 5 with two siblings and parents waiting to enjoy the benefits of a son and brother who went to Lagos for the first time for NYSC.
I know you don’t know what going to Lagos is to me then, hmmmmmm.
Did you also think, it will be easy to call your parents and say the Lord called me into full-time ministry, well I did with faith and thank God they gladly accepted it?
I don’t have an idea of how the future will look like, I don’t have an idea of what tomorrow holds but I know one thing, I rather sink following Christ than shine without him.
Many people called me and said I am wasting away, people I respected called me unserious, but the mandate was stronger than what anyone was saying.
I remember days of no food, only one terrible shoe, 2 blazers, 1 white shirt, several ties, and two pairs of trousers (black and blue) for almost a year, yet we were faithful to the calling.
I remember when the Lord told me it’s time to get married and you can guess how much was in my account, I am sure you can’t guess right. Hmmm, it was #100, yes I mean one hundred naira, no accommodation of my own.
I don’t know what PMO saw then that made her agree to marry myself, because I am not sure I looked like a success story but I was sure of one thing, I CARRY GOD’S FIRE IN MY BONES.
MY ANOINTING WAS MY CURRENCY.
I don’t have to share many testimonies, thanks to the Lord for my leaders who believed in me and gave me opportunities.
I am a proud product of God’s grace and God’s mercy.
It’s 3 years of Obeying and following God, I DON’T HAVE ANY REGRET THAN I WISH I STARTED EARLIER THAN WHEN I STARTED.
I imagined what my life would have been if I have not obeyed God to do this.
I encourage someone, If the Lord is calling you, obey Him but ensure you get the blueprint, don’t just jump.
Thanks for those who have been part of our ministry and have been blessed and a blessing to us, may God bless you all.
Thanks to RCCG and PSF for giving me the privilege to fulfill God’s mandate over my life.
It’s 3 years of God’s glory
It can only get better
I see a burning generation
