Excerpts of sermon delivered by Preacher Alexander Nii Sowah of Oforikrom Church of Christ(English assembly) on Sunday, 30th September, 2012 on the theme:
Don't put a full stop where God has put a comma in your life.
Text; 1 Samuel 2; 1-10
verse 8 says....He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifted up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and he hath set the world upon them.
God is very interested and concerned about blessing his children. At the appropriate time he will come through for us if we do not give up so early. Remember what he says in Proverbs 29:11 ....For i know the thoughts i think toward you....thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
The man at the pool of Bethesda in John 5; 1-13...waited for his time and Jesus came to his rescue at the appropriate time and healed him.
Never settle for less than God's best for you.Don't make decisions out of disperation....wait for God's time.
Even when you're in the pit, God is there with you and will lift you up.
Taking shortcuts may not be God's idea for your life. God has a plan and purpose for your life. Surrender all to him and look up to him. In his time, he will do something great and powerfuul in your life.
Have you been in a situation where you know that somthing is yours but you can't get your hands on it?
Have Faith in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. In his time, he makes everything beautiful.
Never succumb to crises but keep on moving on......till you reach your goal.
