Empowered to Serve

He gently awakened me holding my hand leading me to the dining room; humbly I bowed my knees in awe of Him. I prayed earnestly yet found it increasingly difficult for I did not know what to say to Him; my eyes were becoming so heavy and filled with sleep. I turned to get up from my knees feeling frustrated I wanted to back to my bed; immediately though His voice of comfort and love spoke so soothingly, “Don’t go, stay with Me,” His words have changed my life forever! Something fascinating happened while I knelt beside the wooden chair at the dining room table. It is the place where Abba Father turned my darkness into light for me. He turned my sorrow into joy and filled my mouth with laughter. I call this experience my Ebenezer encounter which I shall never forget. Then I listened attentively to more of Abba Father’s instructions, “Bring forth the fruit of your labour working with your hands that which you were predestined to do; He said, many stand to oppose you, the nay Sayers and the dream killers shoot out of their mouths hurtful bitter words but I have fully armored and equipped you to not only with stand their verbal attacks but their words are being reversed on to themselves. The tool of discouragement cannot derail or distract you for the Greater Encourager Himself, the Holy Spirit abides within you furthermore the Great Commander has already won this battle. Now it is time for you to bring forth; continue to labour in prayer and to travail. Keep on walking the floor and making intercessions for lost souls. Pray consistently for broken and wounded souls to be saved, healed, and delivered. Abba Father continued to speak to me as I sat in awe, “Bring forth the beautiful ministry birthed in pain,” and in response, I wept as 1 Peter 4:12 -13 came to mind, (12)” Beloved do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial, which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you.” (13)” But rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad about exceeding joy.” Abba Father spoke again to me, “You have been tried in the fire now you have been approved, continue to bring forth in prayer, I have empowered you to serve with humility and grace to stand elegantly and completely adorned in My whole Armour no foe can disarm, conquer the one whom I have empowered to serve, and the gates of hell shall not prevail. Empowered to serve and help the wounded ones who have lost their way. Empowered to serve to lead each one who will heed the God’s call to come and feast at the table already prepared. I count it an honour to be empowered to serve at the master’s disposal to do Abba Father’s perfect will.
