God will not allow you travel to the United States until you are ready
Stanley Was Right
In retrospect, Stanley was right. I was not ready for prime time. Watching the fire of God doused in the lives of my peers who were once burning hot for the Lord in their home countries, confirm Stanley was right. Some have even renounced God altogether, exchanging their heavenly birth right for American Porridge. I too could have been one of them, had I not been denied that first visa. In the midst of the disappointment, God was working. He was wanting me to develop an unshakeable bond with Him before I could travel abroad. I am so glad God was up to something when He allowed my visa to be denied.
Have You Asked This Question Recently?
Lately, have you paused briefly and asked the question, “Lord, What are you doing now”? Again, man is always looking at what God has done and what He will do, but missing, what He is doing NOW. Are you in the midst of calamity? Have you been rejected, lost a job or a loved one? Is your marriage on the brink or is your education faltering? Ask God the question, “What are you doing, Lord”. Many times, that still small voice will whisper back. “Be still and know that I am God”. In part 3, I will tell a heart wrenching story of how this question “What is God Doing Now?” helped me overcome another big obstacle. Stay tuned …
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28
