Open Heaven 10 January 2023 MESSAGE:
There is a popular wise saying that in the time of peace, prepare for war. Similarly, before you have a need, sow seeds ahead, so that when a storm arises, your seeds will speak for you. Sow seeds of service to God now because a time is coming when you will be so old, you will not have the strength to run around doing God’s work.
Even if you don’t face any storm at all in your lifetime, a time is coming when you will face the storm of death. At that time, God will ask you, what did you use the talents I gave you for?
Sow good seeds now because when a storm comes, you would need them to speak for you. When you read the story of the sinful woman in Luke 7:37-38, you would see that she sowed a seed that day by washing Jesus’ feet with her tears and wiping them with her hair.
She also poured a very costly ointment on Him and Jesus took note of her. May you do something today that will cause God to take note of you.
During a meeting with my covenant partners some years ago, I told them to ask God for just one thing. There was a woman amongst them who had been barren for many years and what she asked God for was a baby.
She got pregnant and went to the U.S. for tests, but the doctors said that there were high chances of the baby being HIV positive and would have to be evacuated. She refused and cried to the Lord, asking for a sign that would convince her that He had heard her prayer. He responded, “Go home; before you get there, you will get a sign”.
It was during her return to Nigeria that we ran into each other on the plane. She started screaming and when I asked her what the issue was, she explained to me I prayed with her and few months later, she delivered the baby safe and sound.
The baby was HIV negative and even her husband who had been HIV positive also became negative. Her seed spoke for her.
May the Lord hear you in the day of trouble and remember all your offerings in Jesus’ name.
