Taking A Giant Leap Of Faith
Help me Pray!
My dear friends and fellow bloggers I am requesting your prayers regarding a giant step of faith that I need to take this year.
Over the past months, the Lord has impressed upon my heart to launch out into the deep and start a Youtube channel.
I know that this might not seem like a big deal to many people, but to me, it is. Why?
Primarily because I do not like public speaking and avoided it as much as possible.
Secondly, I have no formal training in theology and so I do not think that I am qualified to teach on the subject that God wants me to do.
The subject is centered around the book of Revelation and is focused on the significance of the oil and the wine.
I have made a bold step in writing and publishing a book entitled Harm Not The Oil And Wine, which dealt with this subject.
If you have already purchased a copy of this book I want to thank you with all my heart.
You are counted among the firstfruits and will be rewarded in due time.
If you have not purchased a copy, no problem, because I am currently revising and re-editing the book to put it in digital and possibly audio format to make it easily available to you.
The Youtube channel will primarily focus on the content of this book.
The enemy has placed a lot of doubts in my mind concerning this book.
The enemy has beaten me down and turned my household upside down as a result of this book.
In spite of it all, the Lord kept me.
The book itself has been a tremendous blessing to me.
I have read it many, many times and everytime that I read it I felt renewed and strengthened.
This is exactly how I want my readers to feel when they read this book.
I have received encouragements from the Lord through family, friends and you my cherished readers.
I have also indirectly received words of encouragment from guest speakers at my church.
The most recent Word from the Lord occured last weekend at a revival crusade.
The guest speaker was Sherma Maynard and her message to the congregation was in the form of a question.
What are you carrying?
Excerpt of the message
What is inside of you at this hour in 2020?
The speaker emphasized that God has given each of us a unique gift to carry out His function and according to Genesis 1:26 and Psalms 8:6, He gave us legal rights to operate and carry out this function on earth.
She further stated in her message that we all came into this world with our future inside of us.
God sent us to earth to function in the gift He placed inside of us (Ephesians 1:11).
Sometimes the enemy fights us by robbing us of our identity.
There is something within you that the earth needs.
Your gift is not because of your education. No one can learn a gift.
God created every person with a gift and sent you to deliver it to a broken world.
Therefore, the world will benefit from your gift.
Your gift is not to make you feel good. It is not to make you feel glorified.
Your gift is to help others. It is to make a difference to the world.
Your gift is for the world.
God chose you to carry out His plan (John 15:16).
When God needs something to be done on earth He finds someone to do it.
Don’t let anyone stop you from delivering what God has put inside of you.
Go ahead and deliver!
What are you carrying?
The enemy will fight against you because of the gift you are carrying.
The devil cannot take your gift but he will try to hinder you in your gift.
When you trust God, He will work it out.
Joseph’s gift brought him out of prison. This is the gift that established Joseph in his destiny.
Your gift will make room for you. #Sherma Maynard.
I personally believe that this message was packaged and prepared for me and I am going to be obedient to the Lord.
I pray that this message will also help someone to make a leap of faith into what God is calling you to do.
Additiional confirmation came when I was recently going through some old papers and I found a prophetic Word from God to me.
It was written in 2013 before I started blogging and it stated quite clearly that God is calling me to teach over the airways.
At that time I thought it was the radio station, but now I realized it will begin with the Youtube channel.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for your prayers.
Thank you for your encouragements.
Feel free to leave a word of advice and any resources that will help me in setting up a Youtube channel.
Thank you, my kind friends.
