Last Friday, I served in a prayer session. To lead the people in music as they worship & being prayed over for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The session went well. Forty to Fifty young men & women were prayed over.
After the session, I hurriedly bid goodbye to the brothers & sisters because I still have a birthday honoring to attend to. For a very good friend & brother. Before I left, a sister handed a small envelope to me – a token. I refused but the sister insist. And so, I accepted & put in my back pocket & then exit the room as fast as I can.
To cut the long story short, I made it on time for the birthday honoring. And was able to express my honoring for my brother.
After the honoring, a brother approach me. He is asking to borrow money from me, an emergency occurred & he was short of money.
I said, “Sure. How much?!”
Then we went home.
I arrived at our house around 2a.m. I put aside my things & reach for my back pocket.
I open the envelope & lo, & behold, money inside – the same amount, I gave to the brother!
“Lord, thank you for the way that you have blessed me.
First, You allowed me to serve in the prayer session & to see young men & women saying yes to you & turning their hearts to you.
Secondly, You also allowed me to honor my brother who loves & serves us wholeheartedly. A source of inspiration in our midst.
Lastly, & the more beautiful, you allow me to help a brother in need. Another opportunity to share what I have received from you. And Lord, I am amazed. I can never really outdone you in generosity.
In fact, Lord, by this experience you reminded me that it is not me but it is you who give.
I was only your messenger. The bridge. The instrument.
Thank you Lord for reminding me of this wonderful truth.
I often hear my leaders in the community say,
‘When God calls, God enables’
And I would like to add:
‘100% guaranteed, 100% confirmed!’
Amen. 🙂 “
