1Kings 19:10: So he said, I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.
Today, I will like to keep it short and sweet, lol.
In the world we live now, it seems the loudest voices are on Social media and if your voice isn’t loud enough, it may seem as though your voice isn’t being heard, especially if you are in the Ministry. Oh well, I am here to tell you that the best Public Address System isn’t Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok or Twitter, it always has been and still is the Holy Spirit. Never for once be carried away by the times we are in, rather invest time in seeking God in His word concerning His purpose for the gifts He has bestowed upon you. Only Him can announce your name in the private places of Kings, Queens and the movers and shakers of our time.
Keep at it. Never be pressured into comprising nurturing and grooming time for being heard. Your time for exposure will come and you will not need to blow your your own trumpet because the Holy Spirit will do that. When your gifts are fully nurtured, they will make room for you in the presence of people that matter. Many a great men and women I have learnt from aren’t prominent on the social media space and they have influenced millions of lives for decades. Do not be lured by the pressure in our generation to get half-baked bread out there; you will only be spat out when people get to taste the raw dough you are offering.
I am not in any way saying Social Media is bad, on the contrary, it has helped many people in their gifts and callings, myself inclusive. All I am saying is this: you aren’t the only one that haven’t “blown” on social media, so take your time and make sure you influence your neighbors in real life first before the humans, ghosts and robots on social media.
Proverbs 27:10: Do not forsake your own friend or your father’s friend, nor go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity; Better is a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
