    Then he began to denounce the cities in which most of his mighty works had been done, because they didn't repent. 'Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Bu...

    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

Please Wait Here

  • Elijah said to him, Elisha, please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me to Jericho. He said, As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. So they came to Jericho. 2 Kings 2:4 WEB

    Elisha had worked serving the prophet Elijah for several years when he suddenly asked him to stay behind. Elisha said no and kept following him. Three times in a row Elijah asked him to stay behind somewhere, but Elisha would not stay.

    Elisha would not take no for an answer, and he inherited a double portion anointing and lived the life of miracles that we read about today in our bible. There were many other Prophets too, fifty at Jericho alone. These all stayed behind and missed the anointing that Elisha received. If Elisha would have listened to those over him and stayed behind, like they asked, he would missed the best part of his life.

    There was a time in my life, where after serving faithfully for years, God told us to move on. I was praying and fasting a lot, and my spirit had become restless and hungry for more, but we were told by the ones over us to wait. As I looked around us, there were people twice my age still waiting there. The leaders meant well, and we received the usual one-on-one sermons about faithfulness, dedication, and rewards for those who wait, but God was telling us to do something else, and they could not see it.

    We stayed on longer, it became very messy and the anointing on our lives dried up. It would have been better for everyone if we had obeyed God and left gracefully when He had first told us to. Instead, we did it their way, and we found that there is no drama like church drama. After taking a year off to heal from church abuse, God plugged us in somewhere else, and the Spirit began to flow in our lives once again.

    There will be times when you will have to choose between obeying God, or obeying man. When you choose to obey man instead, you stall in your journey. This choice may involve a very difficult decision, and you have to be prayerfully careful, but sometimes when God calls you to do something, He just tells you about it. Keep yourself humble during this time with fasting and prayer, because pride will blind you. Sometimes to follow God, you cannot accept 'Please Wait Here' as the answer.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please give me a clear vision and put me where You want me to be. Speak to me in a clear, unmistakable way that I can understand. Give me grace to live this life and help me make the right decisions, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

WOW, Pastor Dion, you have hit the nail on the head once again!  I am in a "hurry up and wait" mode with our new startup business.  I am getting restless as I try to get the required paperwork completed.  Just yesterday I found that there is a way to circumvent the stand down, while still waiting for the paperwork to be approved.  I am reaching out to the individual who made me aware of this today!  Onward and Upward with God's new business that I am just the wheelman. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father please give me a clear vision and put me where You want me to be. Speak to me in a clear, unmistakable way that I can understand. Give me grace to live this life and help me make the right decisions, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
