Ministry is a journey of faith, love and grace in the Lord. Where you start is not where you end. The process takes you through various levels, stages and places. The learning is perpetual and the growth is inevitable. Once you get started the process will not stop. If you stay with the program, there is no limits. Your capacity will increase as will your experience. You can never stay the same walking with God in ministry.
You therefore need the endurance to stay with the program. The temptation to quit or lose focus will be great. Multiple reasons to change focus will come your way. Frustrations that can bring paralysis will try to knock you out. Stay true and stay plugged into service and ministry. The challenges you face today will become nothing as you continue to grow in the Lord. The giants in your way will soon become insignificant as you grow in God and ministry.
SCRIPTURE READING: 2 Peter 3:14-18 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. You therefore, beloved, since you know [this] beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Sweet Jesus, am grateful for this process in ministry I believe am growing. Am stronger than my fears and more determined to finish with the program. I stay true and plugged into service and ministry. Amen
