Walk in love – short story to share

Let me share with you this short yet powerful story. One Sunday we had a visitor in our church. He arrived early parked his car and got out. Another car pulled up next to him and the driver told him “I always park there “YOU TOOK MY PLACE”. The visitor politely kept quiet and proceeded to go inside for Sunday school. When inside church he found an empty seat, and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, “That’s my seat, YOU TOOK MY PLACE”. The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome by this church members but said nothing.

After Sunday school the visitor went into the church sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said, “That’s where I always sit, YOU TOOK MY PLACE”. The visitor was even more troubled by this treatment but still said nothing. Later, as the congregation were praying and asking God to dwell among them, the visitor stood and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet. With the changes becoming more and more apparent to all in the church to see then someone from the congregation called out, “What happened to you?” The visitor replied “I TOOK YOUR PLACE”!!!!!!!!! Let’s all walk-in love. AMEN

 

Have faith

 

Luke 17:6 When the disciples asked Jesus to increase their faith, He said to them “if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree,’Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you”.

You see it takes little bit of faith to get things moving. You got to have faith. Maybe you’ve been praying for something for a while and you haven’t received it. It’s not because of how you have prayed or how long you have been praying for it, but do you have what it takes, do you have faith?

He is the Lord of impossibilities, even if you’ve been told it’s impossible. I just love it when God shows up in a situation whereby statistically it has never happened before. Have you ever experienced that?
Well that’s the God we serve.

You see we serve a God who can turn the water to wine.
Who divided the sea and let his people through.
Who multiplied the widows oil e.t.c
And above all, who died on the cross, and on the third day rose from the dead.
We serve a living God.
We serve a God, who is able to do immeasurable more than all we can ask or imagine.

The Word of God says faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God.
Who is the Word – Jesus
Don’t entertain the negativity that will lead to doubt. If you tell yourself you cannot have it, then you won’t, but if you trust God and tell yourself that you have it, then you have already claimed it, it belongs to you. Doubt and faith cannot work together . Once you doubt, you are opening the door to the enemy. You cannot remove obstacles without faith. Yes, maybe it’s been a long time coming but change is going to come.

Mark 5:28 The women with the issue of blood had faith. She told herself that if only I could touch the hem of His garment I will be healed, how great faith is that! She knew that she wouldn’t get His attention. It was so crowded, large crowd gathered around Him. Her only option was to touch the hem of His garment. What transpired thereafter was amazing, she immediately got healed and she felt free from all the suffering she had endured for the past twelve years. She had spent all her savings going to different doctors and instead of getting healed she got worse. But the minute she met the Lord and saviour, her life changed, the diagnosed illness vanished, her misery turned to joy because she was free from the bondage. It took her to have trust in God and have faith that she will be set free.
I encourage you, get closer to Him, just touch the hem of His garment, trust Him, have faith.
