My destiny isssss greattttt.. I have always referred to myself as such, not really knowing what I was decreeing over my life. The bible says life and death is in the power of the tongue. I try to speak life always, our Pastor preached a sermon some time ago..”What do you see? The answer is, “positive” in every situation. The bible says let the weak say I am strong and the poor say I am rich..
This past weekend was awesome, our senior Pastor Gifty’s Spiritual Parents had their church five year anniversary banquet and conference. Our Mama and Papa, Bishop Bennett and Apostle Dr. Gina Aboagye, yeah that African name just creeped up on you..Haha..You know how we do..I will blog about Dr. Gina’s testimony soon..:-)
It was aptly called “Rehoboth” which means the Lord has made room for us and we will be fruitful from the book of Genesis chapter 26:22 And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth,because he said, “For now the Lord has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.” when Issac dug some wells and people kept taking it, he never fought but just moved to another spot and dug another one. It shows perseverance and persistence in the wake of adversity. I will reserve for another blog post.
The guest speaker at the conference was Dr. Mark Amoateng my God his prophetic is sharp, sharp..My Ghanaian family will say ditto, ditto..He was preaching, walked up to me and called me by name, apparently as I was told he had just started preaching when I came in late as usual, may the Lord deliver me from lateness in Jesus name, Amen. 🙂
I tell you, I am always in awe of the Holy Spirit, he spoke from the place I was born, to details of my life that I will not go into here. Dr. Amoateng confirmed things, once the Lord has said it, three times I have heard. Last year the Woods were at our church God’s way chapel International for a conference and Bishop Mercy Wood, called me out of the crowd my first time seeing them and being called by name. This year the man of God, Dr. Amoateng came never heard of him or seen him, prophesied over my life and called me out of the crowd. Not only me, but some of my sisters also from our church. God bless you Mama and Doc..:-)
I thank God for everyone that have touched my life one way or the other..My Pastor Gifty, always tells me, Jackie you have no idea what God is going to do in your life. Mama Gina, also spoke over my life and then she said, “Soar”.. Medasi Pastor Gifty, Momma G.:-) thank you for everything and God bless you..To God be all the glory…
