Don’t be Discouraged
Many years ago I felt very discouraged, I looked around and asked myself “what am I doing here? Why did I leave my lecturing job to be the General Overseer of these people that don’t even appreciate or care about me?”
That day, I was so discouraged that I decided to resign as General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God. I later took a nap and by the time I woke up, a little girl came to me with a cake and said God told her to give me the cake. I was overwhelmed with surprise. I accepted the cake and even though I don’t really eat cake, I ate this one. While I was eating, God said “I thought you said no one cared”.
My child, everything around you might seem discouraging, but God cares. He loves you and all you need to do is lean on Him in prayer when
you feel discouraged.
Discouragement is one of the devil’s favourite tools to make a person lose what God has in store for him. When you feel discouraged, it means there is something glorious coming and the devil wants to steal it from you.
See how much God has blessed me now as General Overseer of RCCG, the devil’s plan was to make me resign and lose all these blessings.
