SCRIPTURE: Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 21:13
Fire is relentless; once it starts, it could take over its entire surroundings if not well controlled. It just keeps going, clearing off anything that is on its path. As we see in our Bible reading today, Paul did not allow anything at all to discourage him from working for God.
In another instance (Acts 13:6-12), Paul was trying to preach to a governor, but Elymas, the sorcerer, tried to convince the man not to accept the gospel. Paul did not get discouraged; he struck the sorcerer with blindness, got him out of the way and won the governor for Christ.
Fire is never afraid of whatever stands in its path. I remember when we first went to the town of Ede in Nigeria to hold a crusade. There were indications of resistance in the spirit realm, but we put our faith in God and were not discouraged.
As the programme was starting, it began to rain very heavily. I wasn’t bothered; as long as it was rain and not fire falling, I decided we would continue the programme. Suddenly, as the choir was about to step on the stage, it collapsed. There was a brother there who owned a tipper. I told him to drive the tipper into the crusade ground, and it became our stage.
We went ahead to hold the programme despite all the challenges we faced. Don’t be discouraged by all those who are trying to stand in the way of the assignments God has committed into your hands; keep going. If they refuse to move out of your way, they will be consumed in Jesus’ name.
Be relentless in your pursuit of Kingdom goals. Don’t let lack of funds stop you from doing what you want to do for God. Get going; God will provide the funds when you move. Don’t let disappointments and betrayals weigh you down; encourage yourself in the Lord and keep moving (1 Samuel 30:6).
Over the years, so many things have stood in my way – including man-made laws. If those who decide to obstruct me remain in my way, no problem; whatever casualties will result from that will not be my fault. You must be relentless if you really want to be what God has called you to be. You must never let anything stop you.
