I have been praying for an opportunity to witness Jesus since I moved in to my new apartment. Everyone seems to be busy with little “hellos” but I kept reaching out to the entire estate. Recently I developed a relationship with the landlord and we got talking, sometimes we would talk for hours, he would ask many questions and I will answer.
One day He sent for me but I had traveled, and my associate was around. When I got back, I didn’t know what had happened, then he called to see me days after I had arrived. Good morning Sir, I greeted. Joy was all over his face, he was excited but I couldn’t ask what had happened to him. Then he reached out to me and handed me an envelope. I opened and it was huge. Sir what for? I asked.
The other day I called for you, but you were not around, your associate and I got talking like we used to. We talked about the Holy Spirit for hours, then he asked if I would like to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues? All he did was to put hands on my head and my throat popped open and I have been speaking in other tongues for days now. I have never been this joyful and excited in my life, everything seems new and fresh. All I did was to look on and rejoice with him. I had sowed the seed, my associate watered it and God gets the glory.
When his kids (they are teenagers) got back from school for holidays, they would always come to play with “Daystar” (My son). Then I called one of his daughters to my prayer room, taught her the Word, led her to Christ and she received the baptism of the Holy Ghost. I am having a Bible Class with the eldest sister now on “Forgiveness of sins”. The mother called to thank us recently; she told us how everything is changing in her family. They have been a channel of blessing to us too in ways I cannot describe here. We do all these as unto the Lord, not for the belly or a token.
Whatever God puts in your heart to do or whatever leading the Spirit gives you, always learn to agree and yield without delay. Don’t tip toe out of God’s plan for your life for the sake of formality. God has spoken to you about your boss in the office but you have been delaying and procrastinating. If you don’t move out from that centralized system to obey the leading of the Spirit, you may be choked by it. You can trust the Holy Spirit to the last degree on whatever he instructs you to do and because you are partnering with Him, He will surely get the glory out of it.
1 Corinthians 15 : 58 [NIV] – Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
