YOURS IS A SPECIAL MEAL hallelujah! I walked into a hotel and after going through the menu, I ordered some food. After about 20 minutes a group of guys and ladies walked in and ordered theirs. To my dismay, these folks got served first. I watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily. I even overheard one of them bragging about how connected he is to everyone in the hotel and I felt mocked. I decided to leave. Unable to take it anymore, I called the waiter. He calmly said to me; “yours is a special order, being prepared by the chief chef himself. That group you see, their orders were prepared hurriedly by students on attachment because the top chefs are busy with yours” WOW..
“That’s why they were served first. Please have some juice as you wait. I calmed down and waited patiently. Shortly after, my meal was served by 6 waiters. Unknown to me, the owner of the hotel who happened to be an old long lost friend of mine saw me when I entered and decided to surprise me. She changed my simple meal to a five-star meal. The party at the other table was shocked. They couldn’t stop staring. Suddenly they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn’t get that kind of service and meal. Such is life!
Some other people might be ahead of you and they might be even laughing at you yet you are waiting tirelessly wondering why it’s taking so long for a breakthrough in your life, enduring mockery and humiliation. I have the GOOD and BEST NEWS for you. The owner of the world has seen you and doesn’t want you to be served a simple meal like those who are mocking you. You are waiting long because yours is a special meal. It takes time to prepare. And only chief chefs prepare them. Wait for your meal and relax. When it comes that laughing party will be silenced for good. Stay blessed and remain in faith your SUDDENLY BREAKTHROUGH IS COMING!
Having “mustard seed faith” does not mean the size or amount. Mustard seeds are small, but very resilient. They have the ability to grow in spite of the condition of the land it is deposited into; they don’t need much soil to grow and neither do they need a great deal of moisture or sunshine to flourish. We should be just as resilient and exercise our faith no matter the conditions in our lives. My brothers and sisters, it only takes ONE ACT OF FAITH to turn the situations and circumstances around. If we must cry out: “Son of David, don’t pass me by”; or if we have to go and dip in the Jordan River seven times. Let’s do what needs to be done by faith through obedience and determination. Paul admonished us this is the only way we are going to please God. Pressing forward in faith and obedience, again, causes a reward to be given to the diligent seeker.
Don’t stop! Don’t be discouraged! Don’t succumb to the illusion being presented. Be resilient like the mustard seed; and move forward hallelujah
When a young man got to his house, he realized he lost his key to unlock the door. He went to the 24 hour lock smith near by. But to his surprise the place was closed. He then went to hardware near by to buy a hammer so that he could break the key. But the place was closed also. Which key am talking about?I am talking about the problems you are facing right now. That’s the padlock I’m talking about. The lock smith I’m talking about are the traditional healers and false prophets. The man thought for a while. There is a being called GOD let me pray. After praying the door was open. The padlock was not unlocked, but it was broken. My brother, my sister God never fails, there might be a padlock in your life you have been trying to unlock for years. Give it to God, He fights our battles. Don’t be discouraged, anxious and feel hopeless, God is in control Hallelujah!
Let’s say it together: I TRUST HIM because God is Spirit – I will seek intimate fellowship with Him. Because God is All Powerful – He can help me with anything. Because God is ever-present – He is always with me. Because God knows everything – I will go to Him with all my questions and concerns. Because God is Sovereign – I will joyfully submit to His will. Because God is Holy – I will devote myself to Him in purity, worship and service. Because God is absolute truth – I will believe what He says and live accordingly. Because God is Righteous – I will live by His standards. Because God is just – He will treat me fairly. Because God is love – He is unconditionally committed to my well-being. Because God is merciful – He forgives me of my sins when I sincerely confess them. Because God is Faithful- I will trust Him to always keep His promises. Because God never changes – my future is secure and eternal…AMEN (Thankful).
