Be sober when dealing with people

 Seek the mind of a God about a situation, what God calls the other person, what is God’s opinion about the situation. The Bible warn us not to judge because God knows that we use our carnal mind in judging. Hosea 1:2 When the LORD first began speaking to Israel through Hosea, he said to him, “Go and marry a prostitute, so that some of her children will be conceived in prostitution. This will illustrate how Israel has acted like a prostitute by turning against the LORD and worshiping other gods.”What we think about a situation and what our eyes shows us is not always the true reflection of things. We judge because of what we heard, what we saw but the person could have repented already and they could be in the perfect will of God.

In his presence, there is protection

When you are able to breath freely, walk freely, see freely and still able to use every part of your body, you need to understand the grace and give thanks to the Lord. Things could have happened that God did not allow and only that which you could handle, came your way. Luke 22:32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

The devil is always looking for an opportunity to pounce but God shielded you. As a child of God , there are angels walking with you, protecting you. The Holy Spirit is also there to shield us from the dangers that manifesting itself in a spiritual manner. Sometimes one sleeps without prayer and still wakes up freely, not that Satan was asleep but there is a hedge around us that prevented him from hurting us. Romans 8:27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

No matter the situation you find yourself in, always remember that God is there with you. He made a promise not to leave you, only believe.

1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

A tired pastor cannot be effective.

The servant of God must have enough time separated to hear from God. As the ministry grows, time will come when you have to have others around you to assist not to control you. Leaders helps to lift some of the weight from you. They make sure things are running well and prepare the church or service. A tired pastor cannot be effective. Exodus 18:17-18 So Moses’ father-in-law said to him, “The thing that you do is not good. Both you and these people who are with you will surely wear yourselves out. For this thing is too much for you; you are not able to perform it by yourself.

Depend on the Holy Spirit to show you the right people to be leaders else you’ll get people who want to run you. When you are called, there things God want to achieve and He is speaking to you not a committee. Acts 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
