DAY 23: THURSDAY, JANUARY 24TH 2019
FOCUS: UNCOMMON GRACE AND INCREASING WISDOM FOR D.G.O., G.S., AND OTHER EXCO MEMBERS TO ASSIST THE G.O IN TAKING GOFAMINT TO GREATER HEIGHTS.
TEXT: Gen. 41:14-57
INSIGHT FOR EFFECTIVE AND FERVENT PRAYER
Christian ministry to a very large extent is a spiritual affair. Other qualifications of God’s ministers like experience and education are good, but those qualities cannot replace or compete with spirituality in the life of a minister.
God has blessed GOFAMINT with men of integrity and great exposure. Few of the abundantly resourceful men have been selected as co-ministers with our G.O. to pilot the affairs of our Church. This lofty body is known as the Executive Council. It is the highest ruling body in GOFAMINT. It has the Deputy General Overseer, General Secretary, General Evangelist, National Overseers and other permanent and rotational members.
We are using Joseph as the case – study in our prayers for these men of God today. Before Joseph came into the scene, the kingdom of Egypt was in dilemma. The king was troubled about the future of the country. All the spiritualists in Egypt could not give any clue or solution to the problem, until Joseph was discovered and assigned this complex and complicated duty. The spirit of God in him, brought amazing solution.
The most interesting part of the story was the recognition of the operation of the Holy Spirit in the life of Joseph by king Pharaoh: “And Pharaoh said unto him savants, can we find such a one as this, a man in whom the spirit of God is?” (Gen. 41:38) The best and the greatest thing that can happen to our lovely leaders is to be filled with the spirit of God. It is written; “Not by might nor by power, but by my spirit saith the Lord of Hosts” (Zech 4: 6). The situation in GOFAMINT as a Church and the body of Christ, is to some extent, complex and difficult. If the same spirit who worked mightily in Joseph’s life to bring solution to the Egyptians problems also works in these leaders, then GOFAMINT have arrived. They would be used to provide permanent solution to many complicated issues.We owe it a duty today to pray earnestly for these appointed leaders for their empowerment by the Holy Spirit.
