Not in Vain

Luke 19:1-10
Zaccheus was a chief tax collector, short and rich, a man that would have been tagged goals in our present age, but the Bible says something special about him. Despite the fact that he had all these qualities, he sought to see Jesus.

Jesus always had a crowd with Him, Zaccheus figured he was short and people might hinder him from seeing Jesus, so he climbed the sycamore tree to see Him. This act, I believe, was something special because Jesus noticed him immediately He got to the tree.

This only emphasizes one thing: every effort we make to seek Jesus is not in vain. The word of God tells us that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6.

In an age where many times the world makes it seem like you are wasting time seeking Jesus when you should be pursuing personal goals, remember that God is a rewarder of those who seek Him diligently.

You can never go wrong seeking Jesus. Blessed are they that hunger and thirst (SEEK) after righteousness, they will get their reward, which is being filled.

Prioritise seeking Jesus above anything else in life. God created you for this purpose.

See the latter end of Zaccheus’ encounter with Jesus: Salvation came into his household! It was strange, for a man who was seen as a sinner because he was chief tax collector; yet, the Lord was gracious to Him because he sought Him.

Friends, don’t stop seeking Jesus! Receive grace to seek Him in the name of Jesus.

Discernment

In this age and time, one of the major issues we are faced with every now and then is the ability to discern by the Spirit. I would link this with discerning the people who should be in your life per time.

This will be in two parts, first to Visionary Leaders and second to every believer who wants to make a headway in fulfillment of destiny.

David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his father’s household heard about it, they went down to him there.  All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their commander. About four hundred men were with him.

1 Samuel 22:1-2 is one of our favorite verses in the ministry. David was anointed King and even though the manifestation of this beautiful word that the Lord has spoken over him wasn’t there, it still didn’t change it. When He was anointed King, the next thing the Lord did after he escaped from Saul was to bring people who were in debt, discontented, people who were in trouble, facing the economic recession, had family issues and so on. Imagine if you were the one in this position, what will you do? Won’t you think the Lord is being unfair, first by allowing Saul come after your life and now bringing people who seemed like destitute to this society wanting you to be their leader.

I believe David was a discerning man, he wasn’t just looking at what they could do for him as the anointed King of Israel, he was busy surfing in his spirit how he could be a blessing to these men, he was seeing the gold in them that would wow the world. If you are a visionary leader whom the Lord has called and all you keep looking out for are ready made people, you might not be yet ready to partner with God to see him bring beauty out of nothingness in a life.

God saw you fit to lead those people you call nothing , the earlier you stay faithful with building them by the Spirit, the better for you.

See the gold in the people you are leading, Dear Leader. See the flip part and transformation that came to those who David led, many of them were the mighty men of David but not to make this post lengthy, I will put up the scripture. 2 Samuel 23:8-39.

Imagine David gave up on them at the beginning and even during the course of his journey, they made mistakes a lot of time, they acted unruly a lot of times but God gave David a heart to shepherd them, knowing that none of them must be lost because God had kept them in his care.

As a leader, call forth who God has designed them to be, sometimes in wonder that if Jesus had not called forth who Nathaniel was and had left him because he said “Can anything come out of Nazareth?’, probably brother Nathaniel would have been lost. (John 1:43-48).

Its no lie or fables that they will stress you or sometimes cause you pain. However since God has placed them in your care, be faithful in correcting them, praying, sharing the word with them and caring for their physical needs as God helps you.

Dear Visionary Leader, love the people in your care, God has given you the grace to bring out beauty from their current state of ugliness.

You are strengthened by the LORD.

We’ll continue next week!

Have a Super amazing week!

Overlooked?

So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Galatians 6:9 (The Message)

It is easy to allow offense or grow bitter when a good deed is overlooked, it is easy to make permanent verdict to never do good just because it went unnoticed or overlooked the last time we did. Thank God for Jesus who calls us to do whatever we do as unto Him and not unto man. Matthew 6:2-4

Here is a story of Mordecai who by reason of staying at the gate heard of the coup that was being plotted to assassinate the king, he then decides to let his niece Esther know of the coup that was plotted and BOOM! the king was saved from eating a meal that would have cost him his life.

However, it feels like no accolade or even party was thrown in honour of Mordecai, everyone kept talking about how the king would have died but never mentioned the person who saved his life. Maybe Mordecai was hurt, maybe he was never hurt, maybe he just believed he did it for God, maybe something else was on His mind… Esther 2:21-23

Fast forward to later in life, the chronicles was visited by the same king because God nudged His heart and wouldn’t allow him rest until he honoured Mordecai. Esther 6

It only tells us that what is most times overlooked by men is not overlooked by God which is why Galatians 6:9 tells us not to be weary in well doing for in due season we’d reap if we do not faint.

We hope this encourages a number of us who feel overlooked or feel every good deed we have done overlooked, God keeps records and everything we do must be from a heart that yearns to please Him and not from a heart that yearns to please men.

The Lord keep your heart and may you do things to please Him alone.

You can not enjoy fellowship with Jesus if you don’t know Him and you can’t fulfill your destiny if you do not know HIM. We welcome you to turn unto Jesus because He alone saves, He died for your sins to make you whole and complete Him. Accept Him today.
