I've had numerous emails coming in about folks getting promoted left and right. It will continue. If you haven't received yours yet, continue to be expectant, and pray. And when you do, don't forget to testify by simply replying to this email or sending an email to email@example.com. Yet, I must caution, getting a promotion does not mean everything in life will be great. No. There still will be hard times. Life is not fair. It's not true what they told us, that you get out of what you put in life. Many times so, but sometimes, you may put your all and get little in return. The Role of Bitterness The key here is not to get bitter. Particularly if you'd like to keep your promotion. You can't always [...]
This is my first letter to you this year. I hope you have already started getting your promotion. A better job, better relationships, buying new things you've always prayed for, and new doors opening left and right. This truly is your year of promotion. Believe that. Really, believe that. I will keep today's letter short and sweet as the Lord asked me to send this out before the month runs out. You don't have to go looking for agony. It will find you if you live long enough. In dry places, be observant of who God uses to irrigate you. Like He used the widow of Zaraphath to water Elijah. Understand child of God, that the dry season will end. When God provides the rain, which He will, don't forget [...]
This week is Thanksgiving holiday in the United States so let me be the first to wish you and your wonderful family, a happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for you, and your journey, and how that you remain steadfast in Christ Jesus, through thick and thin. I recently led a Pastors Conference in India via Zoom, and I talked about Service. You know, to minister means to serve, so as ministers, we are essentially servants. Many these days want to become masters, and nobody wants to serve. Better still, many want to be masters without serving first. Forgetting that even Jesus, master of all, didn't come to this world to be served, but to serve. Jesus said, every high mountain shall be brought low, and every valley shall be exalted. [...]
I like this saying: He who has had an experience with God is never at the mercy of someone with an argument. Oh, you know what you know. You know what you've experienced. You remember when God came through for you when no one else was there - no one else, I say. You remember the times He brought you through the darkest nights.
I truly wish I knew then, what I know now, about the opposition you will face when you begin to rise. In school, we are taught that if we apply ourselves fully, that success is inevitable. What we are not told is that the success will bring forth opposition as you've never experienced before. Enough opposition to make you wish, sometimes, that you were not successful, to begin with. Jesus as a carpenter didn't run afoul with the law. But the moment he started healing the sick, teaching with authority, and drawing large crowds, the Pharisees would not let him be. They tried to suffocate him. Extinguish him even, but ended up making him the Greatest of All Time (GOAT). Occasionally, Jesus would hit back, calling them hypocrites. Other times [...]
Praise the Lord, I have a testimony, our ministry was a recipient of a grant. We thank the Lord for what these funds will do for the ministry. I was at a Church in Kenya when a minister jumped up and asked a simple but insightful question: "Have you started your business yet, or in the process of starting one?" That was a queer question to ask in a Church but as I thought of it, I understood what he meant. You know it's a much better prayer point to ask the Lord for a new customer than to ask that your cruel boss dies. It's much better to ask for an increase in business than to ask for someone to quit so you can be promoted. You see, Elisha [...]
Our local newspaper called the South Side Times, just ran a story on our ministry titled: "Dreams Made Possible". I was aware the story was coming out, but I did not expect it to be on the front page. I got messages from local people picking it up from grocery stores and getting inspired - and so I went to check it out myself, and there it was. Through the story, God is encouraging us to not give up, or be disheartened by setbacks like Covid 19, but to redouble our efforts for his glory. I ask that you take a moment to read this article - it will give you the push you need to overcome your current mountain. Here is the link to the Facebook post I did [...]
