WORKING IN HIS VINEYARD

This is the continuation of last Sunday's message titled 'TIME TO BACK TO THE ROOT' by Omotunde Idowu.
Remember you are the initiator of the contract, you signed your part of the contract without being forced, and of God being the Omnipotent. He also gladly signed his part too. He, however, is waiting for you to start your pledges and continue in it, so He can willingly oblige you. Do not renege as God is not human that could be mocked. He can’t be fooled to oblige His part of a contract which you, the initiator refused or never make any move to execute.
This year 2018, why not help yourself to fulfillment by redeeming your pledges towards yourself? Being faithful to your utterance(s) will go a long way in making you a perfect being, opening ways and doors of surprises in your life; making people see you in the true light and above all, opening the link that connects you directly to the Almighty Creator of all souls.
Endeavour to be truthful to yourself in all things; becoming a new being and allowing the proclamation of God, “Old things are passed away, behold all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5: 17),” coming into fulfillment in your life, begins with you. This was confirmed severally in the Bible that, if my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7: 14). These are direct words from the mouth of the owner of the Universe. He speaks and can never repent of same. The Mighty Man in Battle further commented and I quote, I am the Lord of all flesh, is there anything difficult for me to do (Jeremiah 32: 27)? These and more are His authoritative speeches which have stood the test of time since time immemorial.
All that have trusted the Lord and believed in those great pronouncements have had cause to exult the name of God all their life; Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Job, Hannah, Moses, Joshua, Daniel and in fact, host of other Bible characters that trusted in the Lord, never experienced any disappointment. Why not make a trial by taking a bold step of faith in God and be able to enjoy Him?
You are to be reminded sir/ma, as the years go in and out, we all are moving towards the end of our time. We all are marking-time towards our graves. These could be harsh for your ears and mine, but the fact remains that as you add age, one moves towards his/her grave. Then, the question to me and you is how prepared are you to meet THIS INMORTAL BEING? Whatever we may achieve on this earth, we will have to account for same; whatever and however we have used our time, we would have to make the proper account of your time to the GREAT TIME MASTER. Forget what Atheist may say that there is no God or that there is no judgment-day, I believe the sayings of the Bible and want to encourage you and I to make a reappraisal of our lives now, now and today – retrace our steps back, and be loving-child that we are, individually, to our creator. The Lord Almighty confirmed this when He said in the book of Jeremiah  Chapter 1, verse 4-5, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

To be concluded next Sunday.
