Good day dearly beloved of the Lord, we have been enjoying divine insight from the series we started some days ago, the highlight of yesterday was the need for accountability and staying under authority.
We can’t but over emphasize the need for accountability and staying under authority in a generation that thinks they know it all and don’t need anyone at all.
You can’t exert authority if you are not also under authority, the story of the centurion in Mathew 8 comes to mind
“The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it. ” When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed,
“Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” Matthew 8:8-10 NKJV
One of the best things the Lord did for me was to place me under a system of accountability and submission
There are certain dimensions that can’t be trapped by only fasting, prayers and consecration, the HEAVEN’S TRUST SYSTEM works on accountability basis, before God can trust you with certain dimensions, He will ensure you are under authority.
The purpose of this is that ANOINTING ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH FOR FINISHING STRONG, YOU NEED WISDOM, GUIDANCE, AND SEVERAL OTHER PARAMETERS.
God is more interested in you finishing strong than just using you to do something for him, GOD IS NOT A USER, HE IS A MAKER
HE TOLD PETER, FOLLOW ME AND I WILL MAKE YOU , NOT I WILL USE YOU.
Don’t be so much about being used as much as being made, BECOMING.
Moses was a great man of God, He spoke to God face to face, He read the handwriting of God, He spoke to God and God repented, He parted the Red Sea, Pastored 3 million people, fed them with the meals of angels, who is this Moses?, His dimensions are strange, YET HE WAS SUBMISSIVE TO THE COUNSEL OF JETHRO HIS MENTOR AND FATHER IN LAW ON ADMINISTRATION OF HIS MINISTRY.
Remember JETHRO has no single miracle to his name , he has no track record of any miracle, his ministry didn’t even have 1000 people I believe, yet Moses pastored a 3 million congregation. But despite Moses’s success in ministry, he didn’t have the wisdom of delegation and administration for longevity. Thank God he listened.
I think we are proud HEAR THIS MY GENERATION, ANOINTING CANNOT REPLACE EXPERIENCE AND TIME OOO, no matter how anointed you are there are things you can’t know, only time will teach you and experience.
Someone who has walked a path can tell you how it is.
It is easier to blow grammer on Facebook and Instagram, but go and try church planting, save souls, establish them in church and see them grow, you will discover it is more than sharing revelation.
Don’t join them to insult men who have walked with God for a while, they may not be perfect in fact all of us are not but they know something you need.
Even after God left Saul, God still sent David to the palace, I began to wonder why, but the Lord taught me, He wanted DAVID TO LEARN HOW NOT TO BE A KING.
You need a ROLE MODEL, so that you can ACCURATELY perform your ROLE.
I have a FATHER AND MOTHER ( I am not a social media son, I know my parents and they know me and know my name)
I have few mentors (5 in all) ( I can access all because i need to ask questions and learn and receive wisdom)
I have some role models ( I can’t access most so I learn from their books, messages and programs).
I have leaders and pastors who are my seniors and some colleagues and friends
I am accountable to some men, one of my leaders saw a post on my social media page, He called me and said Daniel I think that post is not appropriate, I didn’t ask questions, My mentors suggestion to me is an instruction, I quickly went to remove it, even though I felt nothing is wrong about the post, but there is something he is seeing that I am not seeing, he has been to places I have not been so he knows what is obtainable there.
Because God won’t bend rules for accountability, you have to prayerfully trust God for a correct father and mother, a correct mentor and leaders to walk with, if you walk with a bad leader hmmmm, it is hard oo but you must still submit .
“Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh.”
I Peter 2:18 NKJV
Please pray very well before you submit to anyone, but you need to be under authority.
You need a covering, covering is sweet oo and makes the work very easy for you.
