Thank God for the men that God sends to us and God gives to us to bring the revelation of God to us, I will be the first person to tell you to leave church if the Pastor does not have the reality of God in his life. It means God has not called him, it means that God does not know him but it is equally dangerous for you to become satisfied with a relationship that is centered around another person, it means you can be easily deceived.
You must come to a place where you understand that every born again person has equal sonship with Go; we don’t have equal responsibilities from God but every born again person has equal sonship with God. It is the servicing of your sonship that deepens your relationship with God and because you are a son or a daughter of God you must deliberately and intentionally develop that relationship.
That your Pastor knows God can be a great blessing to you because out of that experience of your Pastor, great things will happen for you. In fact all your needs can be met except the needs of your spirit, but there will come a time in your life that you must begin to build a relationship with God without losing the benefit of the relationship you have with God through your Pastor.
In the last days, the devil is causing a lot of Christians to stumble because they operate at the level of relating with God through someone else. There is an aspect of your life that it is your personal walk or personal relationship with God that drives it. If you don’t develop that personal relationship with God, that aspect of your life will suffer. There are people in your life now that are depending on your own personal relationship with God, that the Lord thy God of your Pastor is not going to give them 100% cover, what bless them is your own personal walk with God. So for the totality of your life to be what God wants it to be, you must use the Lord thy God to develop the Lord my God.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray that you will baptize me with a fresh hunger for a relationship and intimacy with You so that beyond what my leaders shared and said about you to me, I will know you by myself in Jesus’ name. Amen.
