Topic: Investing In Tomorrow
Scripture: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:3
Thought For The Day: There is no wasted effort in God, and there is no futility in kingdom utility.
Many years ago, before I became a full time pastor, there were times I would fast for days.
At that time, it was not that I saw or felt the call of God upon my life, yet I would pray for seven hours daily. At the time, it was not that I saw or felt the call of God upon my life, yet.
There were times I was praying for seven hours daily.
One day, the ‘fire’ became so intense in me that I went for a program (an all-night meeting) and told the organizers of that meeting that I had a special number to present (this was to enable me download or distribute the ‘fire’ a little) but they said that there was no more time for me to sing my special number. Ironically, the same vigil ended by 4 am for lack of what more to do.
Again, before I became a fulltime pastor, there were times God would show me deep revelations from the scriptures that I felt were heavier than me.
I would ask Him, ‘Lord, what are all these revelations meant for?’ And He would say, ‘You are laying up structures for the future.
Beloved, there is no wasted effort in God, and there is no futility in kingdom utility.
The best form of investment is not the investment in a bank or a property.
The best form of investment is human and kingdom investment because they have eternal dividends.
Remember This: There is no wasted effort in God, and there is no futility in kingdom utility.
