Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. – Psalm 37:4
A New Beginning
From Romans 13:1, let every person be subject to the authority. It should not be only you in competition with the world. Others also want it to be done in their way and so if it is not done in your way, allow the majority to go on. The pastor in a church may want some things to go on however, if other prominent members in there do not want it that way, the pastor who is the head, probably in that assembly finds it difficult to progress on. Whereas in the beginning the church leader may have set up shop to go in a certain direction, but the opposition did not give him/her the way. They did not lie to the congregation when it came to what they wanted to do (Eg. manifesto) but the powers did not give chance.
It is not wrong to oppose decisions but is the nature in which the opposition manages its operations that is of concern. What is the reason behind the opposition? Is it for the interest of the people generally, or it is for the personal gain of one or two individuals? Every new beginning is a new thinking in operation. For a believer of Christ, we need understanding that when you have put in your all, whatever happens, God is in it. Change cannot happen in human effort alone as we love to think. All we do as human effort is to rebrand the same thinking and call it change. My brethren and sistren, human beings by nature do not change. Change, that God is not in, falters. Once the structure is laid down, it is laid down. It would remain so, and all people follow it as it is. This is how all our communities and countries are.
It is thoroughly recognised that change is eminent in this world. It is so, and that is why we all transform.
The world is waiting on us the believers of the Son of the Creator to deliver innovative change to the community.Our environmental investment into the community for its maturity is what people are looking for from us. The world is not expecting us to start in-fighting in the church. In our church environment as Christ believers (Eph. 4:11), we should be prophets who see what is coming before it comes; we should be the apostles who would implement those things which the prophets have seen; we should be the pastors who will administer change; we should moreover be the evangelist would bring our ethics to the knowledge base of the church, and also their value and principles to the people. This is what collectively the world wants to see as a church. The body of Christ should be seen in its fully maturity where people in it have put away their little human squabbles and are ready to match exemplarily through the community to promote hope to the hopeless.
Therefore, as a prophet, I prophesy to you that as you change your mind in the new beginning, a brand-new thing is going to take place in allow areas of your life. As you obey the authorities, doors will be unlocked. No door will be closed against you. Every new beginning is a period of growth, for you, a period of attainment, a period of fulfilment, and prosperity in the name of Jesus. Amen.
