They Might Not Be Called For What You Want of Them


There is no man that is sent to everyone. It is God who determines the calling of His servants, not the people. They did not get into the ministry because you voted them in.

The beginning of the crisis in Saul’s life was because he responded to the pressure mounted upon him by the people in the time of war. 

He offered sacrifice, because the people were leaving him; whereas that was the prerogative of the priest. He finished with his costly mistake when the one called to offer sacrifice arrived. God judged him for that. The kingdom will not continue in his house again. 

The problems in Nigeria today have caused people to define their role expectation of prominent Christian voices. Even those who should know better have joined the call to these personages to do what God might not have called them for. 

If they respond to the popular call, they might end up disappointing Him who called him or worse still, loose their place if they don’t loose their lives. 

Every ministry calling is an honour from God and each calling has it bounds. When a man listens to those who did not call him to do what they want, He may not be preparing to meet His maker, unto whom He will definitely render his account. 

Christians ministers are not called into their role by the people. Some will never express political opinion because they respect their bounds. 

You may be angry with Him, but you will not answer for him on that day. 

It is not everyone that has business with what you want of them. 

Selah!

Keep To The Instructions Or The Specifications


Do not loose your calling and the specifications that God has given you concerning it. The specifications are crucial to your race and your track.

You are free to turn to any right direction in terms of examples when you have not received definite instructions from God in certain areas.

In track events, lane is not specified in all. However in those where your lane or track is specified, you are responsible to adhere to the specifications if you do not want to be disqualified at the end of the race.

When you have received specifications, you know what you will account for at the end of your race.

Ministry is according to the pattern. Paul’s direction was slightly different from Peter’s; yet they draw from the same grace.

This is not to promote subjectivity. It is to let you know that you will be responsible to God on that day.

Instructions are based on Biblical teachings; they may also specify what you are permitted to do.

Be careful about doing what everyone does because of the quest for result. Result is important to every asignment; results however must issue from obedience.

We shall all be responsible for our assumptions or for the instructions we have received on that day.

There is a particular ministry practice that is not sinful, but that the Lord has always pointed me away from from the earliest days of my response to Him. He did not kill me when I strayed into it due to relationships that were even godly; He only lovinly reminded me of the instruction after some time.

He has His reasons for giving you those instructions in the midst of open field of practices.

Obedience is better that sacrifice!
