THE LOT IS CAST INTO THE LAP BUT ITS
EVERY DECISION IS FROM THE LORD......................PROVERBS
THE LOT IN THE LAP
(a word of considerable encouragement)
On reading this scripture recently in an article relating to
George Mueller's entry into ministry I was quickened to write a little on my
particular lot set before me by my God believing that it may also be helpful
to readers of these newsletters....click.
When Father called me to teach, speak and write I was as others you could
say empty handed and not knowing where to start but this is surely the ideal
place and position for anyone wanting to enter the Christ's Ministry.
Let me reference my call by God by saying first it was to salvation then to
speak then thirdly to be not afraid. The third time I heard Father speak to
me was to "be not afraid" and it was this third word that confirmed
to me that I was not to fear man, death of the body, inability to speak as
the oracles of God or fear any form of failure for he/God had arranged it
It was placed in my lap, the call to His ministry/the Christ's, for
His/God's purpose and glory and my salvation and the salvation of all who
Father knowing the human frame has never left me without witness of 'His
Call' on my life and a sure hallmark of this specific ministry JTCM is
that we do not operate by way of 'price tags or bar codes,
marketing the doctrine or ministry of the Christ Jesus. Never have we
had to sell the word of God to upkeep 'the call'.
This was one of the prayers that I sent to Father..."Father you called me to
speak, teach, write and sing 'about and for ' your son, now I look to
see the manifestation of this as I walk with you in the light of your word
the very same words you gave to Messiah".....click.
Yes, the lot was put in my lap and a whole lot more. Father showed me
this when recognition was given to me by two large international
churches/ministries with the acceptance and laying on of hands from (a
christian Bishop not RC and) many
ministers as witnesses yet he also showed me that I am His and His alone.
Father surely quenched my thirst for the recognition of men, reverends and
elders, certificates and acceptance, to then take me in a direction that the
pride of man and woman would without doubt despise and run away from,
however holy ghost assurance by faith held me fast to the call....click.
The beautiful thing about JTCM is that we by faith have never had to
compromise the Christ's Doctrine to uphold it neither have we had to be
subject to the sway of the emotions of wealthy peoples to cover costs.
For the lot was cast in my lap.
JTCM continues today by grace and the loving kindness of men and women who
truly love Jesus as preeminent and love their pastor/guide. One thing we are
careful to do and that is not to make a great noise and advert about giving
to the poor. From the genesis of my Call to the Christ's Ministry I have
always considered the poor as Father led and still do, my wife as a daily
reminder of this, praise Yah!
If the lot is cast in your lap know Father will meet the call, relax, he is
Omnipotent. Reassure yourself today by making Him the portion of your cup
and inheritance, He will be well pleased with that...Psalm
