We continue with from Part 1 here) and how God told me to change my Church. That change of Church was a destiny changing point.
God told me how I would know the Church and true to his words he led me to my Church. My brother brought a flyer home of a program the church did months back. I looked at it and the Holy Spirit nudged me. I called the number on the flyer for descriptions and that was the beginning. That first Sunday, God confirmed to me that this was where he chose for me and I never looked back. Without that change of Church, I am certain none of you would be reading this today. That’s where I learnt about God, grew and became me.
Another turning point was when God intervened and I got that long eluded job that I had always wanted. This time there was no disappointment, no avenue for Satan to snatch it out of my hands like the others.
The day I decided to stop running from God’s work and joining the teaching department are pivotal moments in my life and major turning points in my Ministry. If I had not taken any of the decisions, I would probably still be a bench warmer in the Church, and suffering the consequences that come with running from God. It would not have ended well, that I can tell you . I had started having dreams pointing to the fact that “It” would be taken from me if I continued running and didn’t surrender.
Realising my purpose, walking in line with that are other turning points. Believe me when I say all of these turning points are all interconnected and that if I had missed any of those preceding turning points mentioned earlier here and in this post, if I hadn’t hearkened to the Holy Spirit’s leading none of ME of now would be here today.
I mention all of these to give you a background of the kind of turning points I have encountered and important they were in the scheme of things. Yet none of these compare to THE turning point.
THE turning point was the moment I surrendered all to Jesus.
Amazingly it happened while I was reading a newspaper article of a pastor who I didn’t like because I heard he was fetish lol. God used that to tell me not to judge and that he would use who he would use.
That day in my sitting room, I knelt and handed over everything I was struggling with to Jesus. It was that day that my life changed. Only after this was I led to my Church and all the other stuff I mentioned above happened but without Jesus, there would be have been no career, ministry, life turning point for me. My meeting my Pastor Lucia in University would have been futile and I may not have been able to maintain that abstinence if I hadn’t surrendered. Without that surrender there would be no victory, purpose, call, impact, no Ministry, no teaching or even this blog.
That singular realization and conviction is why I am sharing this. And also because of someone who is struggling , who has struggled to let go, struggled to achieve, to become, to find a way, to get breakthrough, to overcome depression, bad habits, who wants to win the battle against bad dreams, is under satanic oppression and attacks , lives a life of fear. This post is for you.
Peharps you always have bad dreams , or you and your family are under spiritual attack. Maybe it’s a case of constant disappointment like I faced with the jobs I got, maybe you struggle with addiction to sex, masturbation or pornography, it could be an exam you have written countless times and failed, maybe it’s just depression and sadness. Or feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness. No matter what you are feeling or going through, I am here today to tell you like that pastor wrote in that 2011 article in the Vanguard newspaper that I read, to hand it over to Jesus.
Jesus is the first step to major victory, change and breakthroughs.
Talk to him about that stuff you are going through and if you are yet to do so, accept him as your Lord and Saviour, give him leave to intervene in your situation and I tell you that you will never regret it. Jesus is THE turning point. Take it from me. I have been there, done all sorts, gone to lots of places, and I reiterate Jesus is the turning point.
All you need to do is give your life to him. Pls say this short prayer with me.
Lord Jesus, I accept you into my life. I believe that you are the son of God and that you died for my sins. I confess all my sins and ask for forgiveness. I wash myself with the Blood of Jesus and hand over every area of my life to you.
Thank you Lord. In Jesus name I have prayed. Amen
That’s it. You have your turning point. I can assure you that your life will never remain the same and I believe that the story of your life changes for good from today. Mine did.
