In 2018, when I initially heard the word for the year, I was expecting the unveiling of each
month to be without tribulation or challenge. But I rejoice because even in the midst of
many storms, the Father gave me his peace and His assurance through which I am able to
surmount and exit every opposition without scars. I am now certain of the Father’s deep
love for me and others. In fact, I have found my uniqueness in Him.
I use to be labelled a “prayer warrior” by people in my neighbourhood but I have learnt to
appreciate prayer as loving communion with my Father and not a fight. He made me a son,
one with Him, steward over all. So, there is absolutely no need for me to fight, compete or
try to proof my worth to others. Amazingly, when I learnt to rest and was finally tired of
fighting, the things I desired the most became a reality. They were freely given to me as a
gift which left me in awe and thankful every time. It is not by might nor by power but it is by
the spirit of the Lord. I discovered that I was actually fighting in fear but now my silence
emanates from a place of complete peace and assurance.
I thank God for the man and woman of God; Apostles Drs. Shawn and Annie Smith because
through the gospel of grace expounded by them, I receive faith and enjoy my place as a son,
coheir with Christ. I eagerly wait for the days and years to come because once again, I grow
in the knowledge of Christ but more so the knowledge of myself.
Thank you Father for your love, peace as well as my coherence with you.
