I had an interesting morning today. As I went to check mail I had a birthday card from Kenneth Copeland Ministries. I thought ‘wow, they have sent me a birthday card early in the month for about 10 years.’ As I was marveling over this, God said ‘they have been faithful to you, be faithful to them.’ He went on to tell me to be faithful to those who are faithful to pray for me daily, as KCM is, and to be faithful to those of the household of faith who faithfully send me their word daily, weekly or monthly. It was a short lesson but a profound one. And then I went on my way.
As I went on my way I received an email from one of our partners, I want to share it with you.
Good morning! What a GREAT devotional!!! I have given ANTM a raise in my partnership seed…daily I receive manna from your insight and wisdom and it’s high time I said thank you in a tangible way! I am seeding for my Norwex business. I just returned from our National Conference and I am more than ever passionate about the way this company and these products can make homes greener and cleaner. Our environment is a MESS and I want to tell the whole world there is a better way! I hope you are using your Envirocloth and your window cloth and it’s helping you clear out all the chemicals you might have lurking under your sinks! My youngest daughter J. quit her lucrative job at JPMorgan Chase (we have worked together here for ten years) to be a stay at home Mom with her two little girls and has joined my little team. We went to conference together and had a blast. It is so wonderful to share this with her (especially since I’m used to seeing her every weekday and miss her terribly!)
May God take this seed and multiply it to A New Thing Ministry until the boat sinks. I am so grateful for both of you, for the way your share your lives (including Bryson and Brailee stories….yesterday was such a bad day I had to dig out my “Brailee in a trash can” picture to perk it up), your trials and the way God pulls you out of them. You have been SOOOO right in that 2015 is a year of God’s blessing and abundance!
Love you lots and lots. Grace and peace to you, S.
This email blessed me beyond measure – it went right along with what God had been speaking to me about that morning, being faithful to the faithful, and I was seeing a harvest of that faithfulness. However, one statement remained in my spirit….May God take this seed and multiply it until the boat sinks. Again, I was seeing harvest because that is exactly what I am praying for each seed sown this month…multiply it GOD! However, I have not been praying ‘multiply it until the boat sinks’ but I will be from now on.
Isn’t that a great insight? God is certainly renewing some things in my heart and causing me to be reminded of some important issues. He is reminding me of the faithfulness of those around me and to repay them with faithfulness.
Galatians 6:10 says; Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
Today, I want to remind you to remain faithful, don’t grow weary – YOU WILL REAP if you faint not…and we are not going to faint! AMEN! We are faithful and we shall reap the benefits and blessings of the faithful, in Jesus name.
