Where is the fire I received?hmmm!
I was watching a YouTube video yesterday where Evang. Lawrence spoke about retaining fire. It dawned on me I have an experience I have been led to share.
Let us hear the story;
Some few years back, I had the quickening in my heart to pray for the gift of the Holy Spirit, I prayed in my brother’s room then with tears in my eyes and a burden in my heart. Has someone ever felt such? That urge to start preaching, ministering with power and sometimes you feel like there’s power in you that can heal the sick and deliver the oppressed….oh what a touch!
During the course of the prayer, I was told to let go of a dear friend. Did I? Hmmn! Difficult. I learnt later that to carry a responsibility greater than you have ever done, you will have to let go of excesses that might not necessarily be a sin but might be a distraction now or later or even for a build up of the ministry you have in the future. God truly knows the end from the beginning.
I actually did, I think after two days I sent a direct message to my friend. I’m eternally grateful to that friend for complying as if God had revealed all. It was difficult actually.
The journey started, I wanted my sisters in the fellowship to have such. On a fateful Sunday, I gathered them together and held a meeting. What happened in that meeting, my physical self couldn’t comprehend.
Fuelling the fire made me engrossed so much in Gbile Akanni’s messages and it took me to another level.
Few weeks back, my friend reminded me of our prayer sessions back on campus. Oh, the days of evangelism and seeing results. The feeling can’t be typed. Days of revelation. He is real. Do we have memories of how much God has used us?
Did it last?… hehehehe
Well, I wasn’t patient enough which is another story if led for another day.
There’s a sacrifice of separation to make when you want to fully operate in God’s anointing .I didnt fully let it go but I’m grateful for a second chance to be separated. I might not get the full picture but bit by bit, we move.
Are you like me who lost the fire?
A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
You only need to gather the woods that has smoke but not burning, let the Holy Spirit breathe his fire on it again and you shall burn for God again.
This post isn’t for everyone, if it’s for you. Do well to pray through
Let God do his work now through you.
It took me two years to get my feet by the way. As the Evangelist prayed, may we not have a better yesterday in our spiritual life.
Song: we’ve got to go back to the living truth
We’re going back to the absolute
Going back to where the Church stand strong
Going back to where there is a right and there’s a wrong
Back to where it’s black or white
You’ll see the difference it’s like day or night
We’re going back to the things above
We’re going back to our first love.
There’s a powerful generation rising, be among.
