*πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™‚πŸ˜­TIME TO LEAVE THAT CHURCHπŸ˜­πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™‚*
Don’t be useless in a big church when God wants you to be useful in a small church…

They already have 4 drummers in the church…
Some times, you don’t play even in midweek services for 4 months…

There are many more gifted singers than you in the church…
Even if you are better than them…
But at least, they are ones handling microphones…
And Some times you don’t handle microphone in 4 months or more…

Everything you can do for the church, there are more than 10 better hands that can do it better than you…

If you still care to be relevant in this end time…
If you still want an oil that will set you apart in such noisy age that we are in…
Then look for a place where God will see you using your talent daily for Him…

There are smaller genuine churches around that can appreciate the little you can do…
There is a man of God that has been praying for passionate workers like you…

Why wasting heavens resources in a place where you don’t even have opportunity to work for God?…

And the little you do, some people think you want to outshine them….
Even when you are selflessly working with your whole heart…

Pray about this…
If God prompts you..
Take excuse from your pastor…

He might not release you immediately…
But if it’s God, as you keep praying…
He will release you…

So that you will Go and use your talent and serve God better…

The only reason God released Israel from bondage was to go and serve him…
In the wilderness, not in the palace…

It is only God that knows why he always chooses the wilderness as a route to greatness and honour…

I hope you are not still in a church because your pastor will be angry if he doesn’t see you…

There is no need being in any environment you are not useful in…
If there are people that can do what you can do…
Simply locate a church where there is nobody there that can do what you can do…

We all one Body…

When the revival we are trusting God for will break out…
Denominations will no more become a place where talents are hunted and caged…
So that they don’t go and bless other churches for them to grow more than us…

That is the spirit of Babylon that is already on the throes of a final death…

We are all one family…

Don’t be useless inside a big church when God wants you to be useful to a small church…

Just because G.O will be angry if you leave…

Don’t forget that he has paid his own price…
Don’t allow anyone to keep you at ease in Zion…
If not there is already a ‘woe’ hovering over your destiny…

I am telling you what I did…
And if I have opportunity I will still do it again again…

I abandoned the post they gave me in a big church of about 2000 members…
As the director of all the buses that coneys people from many places to church every morning …

Even though I was in school…
Yet, they left the position for me…
And every 2weeks I will go back, to control things…
And to the glory of God, we were combing all the nooks and crannies of villages…

5:30 am, we would have woken up every Sunday morning”..
Going to villages, with the buses, waiting for people to wake up…
Shouting the name of the church with megaphone…

Tying apron front and back…

Sometimes, we will even be the ones to knock on their doors to wake the up…
Some times too, we will help them go to the stream of borehole to fetch water they will use to bath and join us to church…
Especially those elderly men and women without children or house helps…

And the buses will still be steaming…
While others are in other parts of the villages shouting for people to come out…

It was a nice time…
Even the head pastor took notice of the addition my leadership was contributing…
Mostly, when he was seeing older people being able to come to church from such distance…

But the truth is that…
I had hundreds of guys who could do more than me there…
Even when I am not around, nobody misses me again…

It was not about recognition…
But about Kingdom relevance…

I knew I could be more useful to God than I was…

God saw my hunger and directed me to a man of God that just started his ministry in a village…

He,myself and my friend were the only members…

It was not easy serving a church under tree today…
Uncompleted building tomorrow…
Primary school class next Sunday…
Secondary school field the upper Sunday…

But I was useful…

Evangelism…
Follow Up…
Prayer…
Etc…

Infact, if there is anything I am becoming today, it will be majorly traced to that small church…

If there is any spiritual virtue I have today..
To the glory of God, I picked it from that small church…

It was not easy …
Sometimes you will be ashamed to invite your friends that worship in big churches…
Because you know that you people don’t even have good sound system…
But I was growing there…

Yes, my pastor needed us at that time…
The presence of My friend and I throughout those years…
Day and night encouraged him a lot…

But we know that we needed him more than he needed us…

Thank God I left that big church…
If not I would never have been what I am becoming today…

There is nothing wrong being a part of a big church or fellowship…
But ask God questions, incase you are needed in a smaller place…
So that You don’t waste Kingdom value …

In that small church I learnt selfless view towards Gods work…
I caught undying passion for souls…
I watched my pastor trek under rain and sun with his wife…

Begging people to accept Jesus…
Even if they don’t want to come to our church, he will be giving them transport money to attend any church of their choice…

There, I learnt bluntness …
You don’t trade the truth because you want someone to occupy the empty seat in church next Sunday…

I leant forgiveness even before offended…

And For 4years, I learnt prayer and deep intercession…

Because I watched and prayed with him for 4hours for 4years…
Every Thursday, Consistently …

Not for his church growth…
Not for money…

But for God to tear the heaven over that religious town and let there be massive revival…

Even as a first class product of UNN, from microbiology…
And an American trained registered nurse of many decades of service…
I watched him eat and drink garri with poor and wretched men and women…
I saw people that should not even stand Him insult him…
Yet, he never picked offense…

He forgot whoever he was…

Friends, in that small church I caught the spirit of humility…
He taught me that the more the praise and ovation, the more smaller you should be in your own eyes…

I have traded this for years,…
And it is paying big time…

Some people says he talks about himself too much…

Don’t be angry with me…
If God is using the little we have seen on this journey to encourage or inspire one or two people…
Then, why not pray that God increases us, instead of throwing aspersions…

Sir, there might be something God has for you in that small church…

Don’t be rushing to a church because you are hearing the name of the General Overseer on television…

You may never catch anything there that will make them see you on television any day of your life….

What you need for where God is taking you might not be a platform to shine…
But a place to hide…

Sometimes what we need to shine is to hide…
Your next level might not be a church where you will be sowing beautiful choir robes…
It might just be in a place where nobody will like to follow you to…

Thank God your prophet is popular…
Thank God your church is in every city and street…
But I hope you are where God wants you to be now…

If there is an unrest in your heart right now while reading this…
It might be you that this post came for…

It means you need to open yourself up and let God lead you from now…

If it is not too much to ask…

Bow down your head and …

Let us pray…
