When I received the call of God into ministry, there were at least two people that I was scared of seeing. I was not sure how they would respond when I mentioned the call to them. He was a visionary and a great intellectual. 

I knew how much help he rendered when I wrote my final project on Taxation. He was a dear father. I tried all I could to avoid running into him until one evening. When he saw me, he did not mince words, “Temi, you are done with service year. What is your plan now?” I froze and I explained the call to ministry to him.

His response shocked me: “Temi, when I was coming to Eruwa thirty-three years ago, many of my colleagues called me mad. Today, when they visit, none of them has a better legacy than I do. They have now realised that my madness has method”. He smiled and added, “People may call you all sorts of names but focus on what God has asked you to do”. What a relief. 

Beloved, God knows how to work things out. The hearts of kings are in his hands and like streams of water, he can direct it where he wills. 

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.

Proverbs 21:1 NKJV

I sense to say a prayer for someone today: Where you are still trying to find words to explain, may you return with testimonies. For that business that you have been trying to get investors to believe in, may you return with an assurance. 

Listen, there are some things that only God can do. If you rely on your oratory prowess to convince men, you will sweat it out. However, when grace takes over, it looks like a piece of cake. 

What if Joseph had been the one plotting on how to sell his vision (given by God) to Pharoah? It looks almost like an impossibility. God knows how he will work it out. 

A songwriter said: 

God will work it out.

God will work it out 

One thing I know

One thing I have found 

God will work it out. 

Do not let fear keep you in one spot. The fear of men is a snare. Say it as the Lord has told you. Say it with the wisdom of God. One thing you cannot do is convince people. Let God do it by Himself. He will surely do it. 

Please, do not sit in one spot. Be like the lepers who said, “Why sit we here till we die?” They moved. They did not die. They made unusual discoveries. May the Lord bless you with boldness in such a time as this. May He bless you with unusual witnesses that He is with you on this journey.
