A Chance to Look Up

Delivered by Pastor Kayode Fanilola (Throne Of Grace Ministries), June 13, 2007.  

This generation is the generation of trying to accomplish so many things at the same time within a short period. It is a generation of driving and talking on the phone. It is a generation of traveling and at the same time doing your office works on your laptop either in the plane or in the train. It is a generation of busy and crowded schedule. People drive and eat at the same time. The bottom line for people in business is profit. There is no time to spend in the presence of God. Ministers of God are so overwhelmed with church programs. they are busy working for God but not walking with him and not talking to him.

But because we are the sheep of his pastures and he is our shepherd, the Lord will not allow us to kill ourselves. He regularly intervenes to save us from ourselves. During such time, he makes us to lie down in green pastures. That is when you are grounded in one way of the other. It may be through sickness or through a broken bone in an accident. It may be through a failure in business or in an examination. At this point in time, like a sheep, you will lie down to re-cogitate and chew your cod. That is when you are forced to observe quiet time with God. Sometimes, we need to be still and allow digestion of all that we have consumed to take place. This is a time to recharge our life battery.

Sometimes, God allows us to lie on our back so that we can have the chance to look up.
