Topic HONOR YOUR SHEPHERDS – 1
Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
Many years ago, a Pentecost elder said to me “I can see that God will take you very far but there is one prayer I am praying for you, that God will give you a people with good heart” The most difficult state you can find yourself in ministry is not dealing with the devil or principalities and powers but to be surrounded by people with wrong hearts. Nothing can be more dangerous than this. They will come to church, fast and pray but they will still go out and talk negatively about you.
One day one of my spiritual sons told me that studies have proven that one of the fastest ways a church grows is when the congregation love their pastor. In one of T.D Jakes’ conferences I attended, he said “When God decides to put the devil on one side and put people with wrong hearts on another side, choose the devil because the devil has already been dealt with by Jesus. Wrong people have destroyed the church more the devil. How do I know that? “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” ( ) which means that the devil has been permanently cut off from the church. It is people with a wrong heart that are destroying the church.
Pray and ask God to surround you with the right-hearted people.
