Since 2016 and after four back surgeries, it became obvious that my overseas trips and training had come to an end. Self-pity started to set into my heart during that fourth surgery in November. Through many tears, as I lay in that hospital bed, I told the Lord (or accused the Lord) for bringing an end to my ministry. As I wiped away those tears, I thought I heard a voice saying to me, ‘you have no idea what I have planned for you!’ That meant, wait and see.
These years since then have proved HIS point – I have more to do than it is possible to keep up with at times. I never thought of myself a writer, and still don’t, but have written more in the last four years than the previous fifty. I see part of this new direction to be with a purpose.
Before I explain, please read these two verses; “But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and you all have knowledge. I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth” (1 John 2:20–21).
I am not an evangelist, but I have a deep passion to disciple believers who “know the truth” into a deeper conviction of the truth so they can with confidence and power of the Holy Spirit teach others to have the same (2 Timothy 2:2). In a way, I have the gift of teaching and exhortation.
Multiplication, as we see in the Book of Acts, did not happen from being “soft” in their convictions about the gospel and the person of Christ. It came from “standing firm in the faith” and helping others do the same. That is one reason I write this blog. Do you know the truth? TELL OTHERS!
