Never forget that champions pursue faithfulness and not fame!

Topic: Desire to Be Faithful, Not to Be Famous -2 [Wednesday 30 August, 2017]

Welcome! Donna Reed once counseled his group of students: “When you handle yourself, use your head, when you handle others, use your heart.” A mafia godfather accompanied by his lawyer walked into a room to meet with his former accountant. The godfather asked the accountant: “Where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me?” The accountant refused to answer! The god father asked again: “where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me?” The lawyer interrupted: Sir, the man is a deaf mute and cannot understand you, but I can interpret for you.” The godfather said, “Well, ask him where my damn money is!” The lawyer using sign language, asked the accountant where the three million dollars was. The accountant signaled back: “I don’t know what you are talking about.”

The lawyer interpreted to the godfather: “He doesn’t know what you are talking about.” The godfather pulled out a 9 millimeter pistol, put it to the temple (brain) of the accountant, cocked the trigger and said, “Ask him again where my damn money is!” The lawyer again made signs to the accountant, “He wants to know where it is.” The accountant signaled back, “OK! OK! OK! The money is hidden in a brown suitcase behind the shed in my backyard.” The godfather said, “Well, what did he say?” The lawyer interpreted to the godfather: “He says, Go to hell’, “and that you don’t have the guts to pull the trigger.”

Of course you don’t have to be told what the godfather did thereafter, but the emphasis of this story the motive of the lawyer! He wanted to gain from two men at the same time! He wanted the accountant dead and of course legally, the godfather did not know where the money was, except the lawyer! When men’s lawyers begin to become liars, then there is a scarcity of a faithful men on earth! As faithful and trusted men are getting fewer, then you must ask God to make you different! Never forget that champions pursue faithfulness and not fame!

The only prayer God has refused to answer for me is: “LORD, use me mightily fro Your work but don’t allow me to become famous!” Elisha was faithful to Elijah even when the going was rough and he got a double power portion! Did Elisha not become famous later? Be loyal to your family, friends and be true to humanity, even if it hurts! Never forget what Donna Reeds said: “when you handle yourself, use your head; when you handle others, use your heart.” Wherever you are, be true! Be faithful! God is your Paymaster!

Prayer Points: Take any song of worship as led.

1. Thank God for the Word! Receive grace to be faithful! Pray yesterday’s prayer points!

2. Lord, expose, expire and dry up the wicked plans of unfaithful men around my life and ministry (pray it very well). Pray generally on any issue(s) affecting your peace.

3. Use the morning, afternoon and evening devotional prayers! See pages 7-9 now. Use the “FAITH BOOSTERS” today! See page 34 now.
