God Always Sends A Man
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe
When people pray for a revival in a city or for the salvation of souls, God doesn’t come down from heaven Himself to make it happen; He sends a man. Whenever He wants to do something for a nation or a people He sends them a man. To bring the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt, He didn’t send an army; He sent Moses. To save the world, He didn’t send an angel, rather, He sent Jesus in the form of a man.
When the Lord wanted to bring joy to the city of Samaria, He sent Philip: “Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city (Acts 8:5-8). Always, He sends men when He wants to do something for men.
Each time God sends a man, He gives him the necessary credentials required to fulfil his assignment. One time, John the Baptist sent two of his disciples to ask Jesus if He was the Messiah sent by God. Jesus replied them saying,“Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached”(Luke 7:22). These are the required credentials of a man sent from God.
When you come into Christ, God sends you a man of God—one He has anointed to nurture you through His Word and provide you with pastoral guidance. Such a man is anointed to bring you God’s message that’ll guard your life against all odds. 2 Chronicles 20:20 says, “…Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.” It’s important to believe the Word of God from your anointed man of God, because it will keep you from making unnecessary errors. Even if you were in trouble already, the counsel of God from the man sent to you from God will get you out of that situation and establish you on the right path.
In Mark 16:15, the Lord Jesus said“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” This means you also have been sent with an anointing to bless your world, and you have the necessary credentials required to fulfil your calling:“ And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:17-18).
thank you for sending me an anointed man of God with words to guide and keep me in the way of your Word. Thank you also for sending me to my world with the Gospel of power. I fulfil my ministry today by your Spirit,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
