I have really come to understand that God is 100% dependable. You can depend on God no matter which kind of desert you are going through or experiencing in your life as a leader in any capacity.
It is a good thing to be a leader and to be led. Paul said that if someone desires to be a leader he desires a good thing. So I have come to realize that you always need to depend on the one you are leading others to, totally. One thing I have come to admit is that no matter how much a great spiritual leader you are still you need to trust in God for destination because you don’t have your own heaven to take his flock. God wants you to remain near him always to get the direction to lead the people.
I personally have experienced allot as a leader called by God to serve in the alter. No matter how many times I tried to resist the call, because of my own personal mere reasons like. God you know that am so poor, weak, without a good machinery to serve you in this place, and more over my family is the poorest. I once said to God,” God look for someone else”.
But all that was a big noise to him, for he had questions to me like” who gives the machinery, strength and health and all that you need to be a servant? is it not I the Lord God. Now Am the one calling you, not either way. He chooses me and new me before I was born.JER.1:4, Eph. 1:4. So he choose me and caused it to happen that am completely disconnected to any material physical supply but made me to depend on him in everything I do my ministry to the lost and needy and more over gave to me those who had to depend on me totally for their hope in life. So they, needing my life support, came to me and I had to serve them by incurring from the Lord for them.
So I have never trusted in God as I do now where he made me to be now. I used to be in the city where everything I need was right at the mouth; friends,food,money,water,and everything I need to be in the ministry
.But he has been my all in all, for one year I have lacked nothing. He supplied my needs according to his reaches in glory. I never lacked anything. More over the profit I got was that he healed me of serious ulcers. Moreover he revealed himself by healing many of their diseases and this became a great manifestation of God’s power. So I want to encourage someone through this article that do not fear any evil ,God knows you and He is with you no matter which kind of desert you are experiencing in your ministry, there is an oasis of love that flows to keep you nourished. This, that the Lord healed and changed their lives are now working great in the ministry. You can read it on how the Lord called me to serve them in my article THE VISION. God is totally; I mean totally my provision in this impossible ground.
Servant of God we are in the desert where only the lord is the answer, where it is too hot but Holy Spirit brings divine soft wind. Trust in God he cares. God bless you, see you later.
