Topic: The Deliverance Power Of Service [Seeds of Destiny 18 September 2019 Devotional]
Beloved, do not be afraid of mockery, it is a platform for your making.
SCRIPTURE: And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn. Exodus 4:22-23
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you are ready to serve God, no Pharaoh can hold you in captivity.
When we started out in life and Ministry, people looked at us with so much disdain. They never believed that anything good could come out of us. But we were not discouraged; we were lost in service to God, being completely sold out to Him. And now, it is glaring to all that God is a faithful Rewarder. At that time, someone asked one of our brethren in Church, ‘Are you attending that small boy’s church?’ but sometime later, the same person came to look for God’s help in the same Ministry he earlier looked down on.
Beloved, do not be afraid of mockery, it is a platform for your making. If people are not mocking you for serving God, God cannot be making you. Brutally donate yourself to service unto God in soul-winning, ushering, sanctuary cleaning, worshipping, praise, counselling, etc. If you are ready to serve, you cannot escape the blessing of God (Exodus 23:25); and the blessing of God is the cure for the curses of life.
In our anchor Scripture, God said to Pharaoh, Let my son go, that he may serve me: So, if you are ready to serve God, no Pharaoh can hold you in captivity. Living in committed service is a doorway to deliverance from every form of captivity. Whatever assignment you do faithfully for God is a key to your deliverance. Why the devil cannot hold us is because we are too busy serving God. God needs us too much to leave us at the mercy of the devil.
Receive the grace for commitment in kingdom service, and that service is setting you free forever, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: If you are ready to serve God, no Pharaoh can hold you in captivity.
- Join a service unit in Church if you are not yet in any one.
- Serve with all your heart, not as unto man but as unto God.
- Make demands on the Blessing of God when you are serving.
