PRAYING FOR YOUR MAN OF GOD – 2 Thessalonians 3: 1 – 2.
We are used to receiving prayers from our pastors for many things in our lives, but little did we know that they need much more prayers. The ministry is a very sensitive work and it takes the wisdom of God to manage the people and the structure of the ministry.
Ministers’ family faces terrible challenges with more attacks whether physical, spiritual or emotional. Make praying for your pastor, mentor or man of God on the top of your praying list. Make intercession for his ministry, his assignment, his family/marriage, finances and especially the message he carries.
MINISTERING TO YOUR MAN OF GOD – Philippians 4: 10 – 15
This is simply known as ministering to a prophet. This is one on the secrets of Church’s financial growth. The anointing flows from the Head, and down to every member (Psalm 133: 1 – 3). Whatever that is ministered to a man of God will always come back in many folds.
A woman received her dead son raised back to life because she ministered to a man of God (1 Kings 17). Abraham entertained angels unaware (Hebrew 13: 2). Mary lavishly sponsored her alabaster box on Jesus before He died and she became the first to see Him when He rose. If you receive a prophet in the name of a prophet, you will receive a prophet’s reward (Matthew 10:40 – 42).
Learn to celebrate and support your pastor or man of God on a special occasion in his life and ministry: Birthday, Marriage celebration/anniversary, ministry convention etc.
PARTNERING WITH YOUR MAN OF GOD – Philippians 4: 16 – 19
God wants us to be a full partner with his servant in fulfilling what He has ordained him to do, thereby we expand God’s territory on earth and the impact of the local church will be manifested. 2 Chronicles 20: 20 …“And they rose up early in the morning, and went into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. Whenever we minister to a man of God, the anointing on that man of God rubs on us.
Partnership is one of the highest levels of financial commitment with God’s servant. This is the process of becoming a partner with the man of God to carry out every project he has to spread the gospel. Paul could boldly say, the Philippians and their church were the only church that made the preaching of the gospel easy for him after departing Macedonia. Ecclesiastes 11:1 “Cast your bread upon many waters, for thou shall find it after many days. Your Bread means: your money, substances etc. Many waters represent: The Anointing or the Holy Spirit. When you cast your bread (money) upon many waters (the anointing), by the time you would be finding it after many days, it would have swollen with water, the anointing and the Holy Spirit of The man of God would have rubbed on it.
There is an anointing from heaven, that when it is released, the only people who get it are the people who are committed to the man of God. Start partnering with your man of God today in fulfilling God’s mandate and watch an increase in your life. GRACE TO YOUR HEART!
