As at Other Times Before

 

With my friends Sam and Tarila Gbesimi, Iyke the Combophonist and Onome Amugeh

 

And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him. Judges 16:20 (King James Bible)

But Samson did not know...

 

He got up and assured himself that as at other times,

He would go out and do exploits...

But he did not know...

 

Child of God,

We ought not to step out in ministry 'as at other times before'.

Yesterday's anointing was great.

But today is a totally different day.

 

No matter what your spiritual gifts are;

Even if it is the same routine,

Even if it is the same set of people you'll be ministering to...

Even if it is the same tool, the same song, the same sermon text, the same script...

Be reminded that every new day is another opportunity.

Treat it as such.

 

Prepare again

Pray again

Show up on time.

 

Be watchful so you do not fall into temptation.

Be prayerful so you can see the way of escape if you do fall...

 

This week, may you not go out 'as before'...
