To become all that God planned for you, you have to pass through the divine process that God has ordained for you. The glory and divine outcome that God predestined for you becomes negatively affected when you boycott divine process.
For example, the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) conducted in English speaking West African countries has a common syllabus. If you register for the examination in Ghana and take classes in Ghana, you can take the same examination in Nigeria and be rest assured that it’s the same syllabus.
The same should hold for anyone who is a true Christian. Therefore, if you cross from one church to another, you should not be a lesser Christian. Furthermore, if you were a deacon in a church and you cross to another church, you should not fall below the measure of what a deacon should be in the new church. However, that has been a problem in the body of Christ today because not everyone is taken through divine process before they are appointed to sacred roles in the church of God.
Never allow anyone to put you in a role that you are not qualified for. Take your time to learn the ways of God and tarry in secret and if it pleases God, he may have a public role for you. I insist as a father in the Body of Christ that the pulpit ministry is not a reward for being a faithful brother or sister in church. That someone has served well at a level does not mean they should be “promoted” to become pastors because ordination into the office of a Pastor requires a calling. If you yield to a bastardized process because you love to be seen, your shortcoming and that of the people who placed you there will soon be exposed.
I have pledged that we will take the time and care to produce Christians that God can be proud of and the body of Christ can be helped by their conduct of life and Christian character.
PRAYER: Lord, I cooperate with your process for my life. I refuse to fall for the lure of the limelight. Hide me in your quiver and mould me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
