If you’re in an aircraft flying, and you’re already in the midst of the air, you’ll only pray to come down safely because your life is in the hands of the pilot. If the pilot makes any mistake, or Satan overpowers him, you’ll fall down like a rock and scatter. If you put your trust in Me, you’ll only pray that I receive your soul. This is why it’s very good to wash your hands clean at all times because there is danger everywhere around you. I Am the Almighty God. Holiness is all I require from all My children.
If you love yourself and value the decision you’ve made so much, you’ll hold on to it by faith. Though you can neither see Me nor Heaven, but you believe by faith. This is why you’ll allow faith to prevail in whatever you may be going through. David My son was a powerful young man. I anointed him as King over My children. But evil was chasing him around everywhere. He put His trust in Me and had the assurance I would not abandon him. I was with him all the way through. When there wasn’t anyone to encourage him, he encouraged himself.
If you have somebody who stands as a physical father for you, count yourself a lucky man. The worst position you can be on this Earth is for everybody to depend on you, and you have nobody to depend on. But you must depend on your unseen Father. Those who depend on you can see you, and they have the assurance that you’re there for them. Whatever word you speak into their lives will be a comfort to their soul. But if you have nobody, you’re on your own. All My Prophets passed through it. This is why I always give such people greater grace, grace upon grace. Some of you may think I’m a partial Father. I Am not a partial Father. I Am a Righteous and Just Father.
If you have a golden cup that you laboured so much before you could have and it’s dirty, and you have other ceramic cups that are also dirty, what will you do? Don’t you know that gold is more valuable than ceramic? As a porter, you can mould different types of pots. Some pots require more clay than others. They also require more time and attention than others. The amount of clay you could have used in moulding one hundred pots, you used it in moulding only one cup. You’ll place more attention on this pot because you don’t want to lose it. You’ll do everything in your power to save it even if it cracks. You know the other cups are easily made. But this particular one is difficult to mould. So are all My children. I Am the almighty God.
Whatever category you find yourself in, rejoice. I Am the Almighty God, and I never abandon My handwork. If there’s nobody to encourage you physically, encourage yourself. Know it for sure I will neither leave you nor forsake you. I will use every power to protect you.
Any chosen servant of God must pass through many afflictions. Not because of their sin but because of who they are. No matter how clean you are, if you want to bathe a baby, your body will be wet. After you finish bathing the baby, you’ll look after yourself. So are servants of the Father. Any servant of God who doesn’t feel the heat of the enemy is not a true servant of God. Jesus Christ in His days felt it. This was why He gave Himself to prayers.
In my few years, according to the grace given to me, whatever I preach is what the Father made me pass through. Moses singlehandedly reared the Israelites like sheep. They couldn’t see the Father, he was their god. He had no physical man to encourage him, but he depended on the Father. It’s very easy for people to call you a father, but the price of being a father is very high. Jeremiah suffered so much to the point that all his family rejected him. But the Father never rejected him. In a life where you mustn’t associate with anybody except your own wife and children, then it’s a big price to pay. Those of us who have a family are lucky. What about those who have no family at all? They are all alone with the Father. Sometimes I feel it as a human being, but I must continually follow the Word of the Father so that the enemy will not take advantage of me.
As his servants, do we need encouragement? Yes, we do. Do we have needs to be met? Yes, we do. Do we need love? Yes, we do. But what should we do when all these aren’t met? Lean on the Father. Dwell on His Word. Constantly commune with Him. You’re on the right track, and there’s no turning back. The greater your suffering because of the Father, the greater the glory that’s awaiting you. Whenever you’re down, draw strength from the wound of the Saviour, the greatest Example of all. May the power of the Most High keep you from falling. May the grace of Him who has chosen you be with you until the end in Jesus name. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus name.
