Hey beloved, welcome to the salvation page, I know you coming here was not by accident, this is your time, this is your season. Jesus loves you, He died for you so that you may become a child of God and may have eternal life. No matter what you have done, His death on the cross paid for your sins, and all you have to do is say yes to Him and receive the redemption of sins and righteousness as a gift. You are on Gods heart, so don’t run away from Him rather run to Him. This is your time. By faith, believing in your heart say the prayer of salvation below. The bible says in Romans 10:9-10:
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
That is all it takes.
O Lord God, I believe with all my heart in Jesus Christ, Son of the living God. I believe He died for me and God raised Him from the dead. I believe he is alive today. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life from this day. Through him and in his name, I have eternal life; I am born again. I ask you, God, to fill me with your Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul! I am now a child of God.
Awesome, do you know what just happened as you said this prayer, heaven rejoiced because of you! “I say unto you that likewise, more joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, than over ninety and nine just persons who need no repentance.” Luke 15:7. I can just imagine a party of praise going on right now just because of you. Welcome to the family. I would like you to email me firstname.lastname@example.org so I can help you with the next steps. Once again, I am super excited and happy for you. well done for taking this step of faith and congratulations you are now a child of the living God.
Hey, my lovelies, how are you all doing? How has your week been so far? Have you been able to take out time to rest and recharge? It is very important that one should take some time to just rest and draw strength from our Father. I love what Jesus says in:
28 “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me.[a] I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.(TPT)
This is from the passion translation! It is really encouraging and refreshing, Jesus is always calling us unto his rest, let us take advantage of it; drop your burdens and worries at his feet because He cares for you! Jesus said in Matthew 6:27 that worrying doesn’t add anything to your life, so beloved let us drop it all at His feet and go to Him.
Wow, I can’t believe we are coming to an end of our Purpose Series and indeed it has been a journey! I did promise you that I have amazing articles coming to you this week! I had the privilege to speak to wonderful ladies that are also on this journey and they agreed to share their stories with you isn’t that just amazing! I cannot wait to learn from them, and I am sure you will too. I love hearing success stories and just people sharing their journey because there is always a blessing in there, lessons, inspiration and just knowing that you are not alone, and you too can triumph! Everyone has a story no matter how small or big it is.
Today we will be visited by Praise Adebayo:
Praise will be sharing with us on her own journey to purpose, where she is, how she is posturing herself and how she is dealing with the challenges that she is facing in her current season. I believe you will be blessed and be encouraged to continue on your own journey to purpose as you read. Enjoy!
My wilderness journey experience
My name is Praise Adebayo, I am currently in the wilderness season, in this season God has been pruning me and drawing me closer to himself. He is helping me to understand that it is not about the gift but rather the giver. It is a season where it looks like all my prayers for material things are not being answered and this can sometimes make one lose faith or be discouraged. In the midst of this I believe God is doing a deeper work in me, He is calling me to come up hither and build stature so that I will be able to stand in my growth and harvest seasons. Most times when God gives us a vision or assignment, we are sometimes too quick to implement and then we realise that we are running on our own strength and wisdom forgetting that it was not our vision in the same place.
The principle of seed, time and harvest applies to everything in life, most times, we try to jump from seed to harvest and remove time from the equation. We don’t know that the majority of the work is done during time.
The best posture to take in the wilderness season is to spend time praying and labouring in the word and also obeying promptly every instruction God gives. For me, as an intercessor and a watchman, I am extremely sensitive to any burden He places on my heart, praying for anybody He asks me to pray for. I have learnt not to release every word of prophecy God gives me except He tells me to. I am taking a position of stillness and rest in Him because that is what He will have me do.
Your instruction in your wilderness season will be different and tailor made based on where God is sending you to, so as much as it is good to learn from others, always go to God for your own instructions. Don’t make a doctrine out of other people’s experience so that you don’t step out of your own unique path.
One of the major challenges I have faced in this season, is deconstructing certain religious mindsets I was raised with, which I have been able to overcome by coming with a teachable heart to the Holy Spirit. One of the prayers I pray when studying my Bible is that I have an encounter with the Spirit and not the letter. The Holy Spirit is the author of the Bible, not man, so as great as it is to have spiritual parents and pastors that you listen to, the Holy Spirit should be your number one teacher. Another thing that has helped me is praying the Ephesians 1:17-21 prayer.
I have also come to the understanding that you don’t have to explain everything to people, it is between you and God. My advice would be that you enjoy your journey, don’t be in a hurry, stay through the process and enjoy each and every step.
