The Lord asked us to start a new work in another city. It was another season of making decisions. For a while, we kept waiting to have everything ready so we could begin all that we had in mind. One day, the Lord said to me, “Do not delay again. Maximise what you have”.

While still looking for a permanent space for church work, we decided to maximise what we have. We welcomed families in our home. We had conversations and shared meals. It remains a great joy seeing lives, marriages, and homes getting blessed. The testimonies became such a huge blessing. We knew the Lord had sent us to reach out, disciple, and strengthen the saints. We became more fulfilled.

Listen beloved, God will never leave you without a witness. There is always something at this level and this season that can be used by the Lord to bless lives and turn things around. Do not despise what you have while crying for what you need.

When you stand in front of the Red Sea and Pharaoh is hunting you down, if you will stop crying and seek the face of the Lord, you will hear the Lord “Go Forward”. You will see that the rod in your hands is useful. Stop murmuring. You are either complaining or praying. Pray so you can see.

Do not despise your sling, stone, and shepherd’s pouch. It may not be as great as Saul’s armour but believe me, it is enough to bring down the giant. God will never leave you without a witness.

If all you see right now is five loaves of bread and two fishes, do not forget the effective yet unseen ingredient called Thanksgiving. When you mingle Thanksgiving with the little in your hands, you will see the wonders of the Lord. I know the salary is not enough to pay your bills but if you murmur, you just lost a miracle of multiplication.

Dear friend, do not look at the season and the clouds. If you keep your gaze on it, you will not move in faith. Faith is trusting God regardless of evidences but much more regardless of consequences.

This is the word of the Lord to you:

He who observes the wind will not sow, And he who regards the clouds will not reap.

Ecclesiastes 11:4 NKJV

Stop analysing the season. Ask the Lord to shed light on what you have. Let Him show you what to do with it:

In the morning sow your seed, And in the evening do not withhold your hand; For you do not know which will prosper, Either this or that, Or whether both alike will be good.

Ecclesiastes 11:6 NKJV

Pray for light this season because light is sweet:

Truly the light is sweet…

Ecclesiastes 11:7 NKJV

You will not be stranded. Return with testimonies.
