Monthly Power Thought with Paul
February 2019: MOVING ON
But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; (Acts 26;16).
Paul’s Three Fold mission to Paul “Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me” (Acts 26:16-18).
Paul’s 3 Fold Calling:
To open the eyes of the Blind
To Turn them from darkness to light
To Lose them for the power of Satan
Paul abode in Arabia three years after hearing Jesus commission him to preach his name. We see in Paul’s time them that it was through Divine Connections arranged by the Holy Ghost he came to birth his ministry and pursue God’s agenda for his life and mission. “Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost” (Acts 9;17). Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles. (Acts 9;27). The prophets and teachers at Jerusalem laid hands on him and Barnabas and set them into their company and sent them on their missionary journey (Acts 13:1-3).
I said these things to let you know that: This is your season of Divine Connections God will connect you, promote you and settle you into his calling. Look for it and step into it. By faith this is your season of connection.
You may be wondering who will conform your ministry who will accept your message. Don’t worry about that. God has his Barnabas, his Ananias, his teachers and prophets who will confirm your calling and will be ready to help you to the next phrase. Don’t look for the big shots, it was unknown Barnabas that recognised the apostles gift. It was an unknown ananias that God spoke to in a vision. Don’t look to the big shots to promote you. God alone is the big shot he will set folks in your path to lead you because you have trusted in him first.
