“A man’s gift [given in love or courtesy] makes room for him And brings him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16 AMP
I will forever give GOD all the Honor, all the Glory, and all the Praise. He deserves it all and more. When GOD says, “YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE ROOM FOR YOU,” That’s exactly what He means. I am a witness that He is a Promise Keeper, and just as you might also know Him as one. And, we know the promises of GOD never expire. Would you please allow me to share a very short portion of my ministry journey testimony?
When I think about GOD telling me at the end of the ninety’s, “MY GIFT FROM HIM WILL MAKE ROOM FOR ME IN MINISTRY. I thought then, how can that be, and I still think I sometimes know how can that be. Many disheartened things have happened since I first heard those awesome words from the LORD. I had a long waiting season. I waited years before GOD said it is TIME. Many tests came my way, and many tests I had to repeat before I was promoted. But I remained FAITHFUL to every assignment, big or small, that was assigned to my hands. I have learned Faithfulness unto GOD has rewards we rarely foresee.
Did you notice my text: “A man’s gift maketh room for him, AND bringeth him before great men” (Prov. 18:16). The word “and” also means, so this verse is saying two things. Number one, it’s saying that “your” gift will make room for you. And, number two, it’s saying that you’ll be brought before great men because of “your” gift: Hallelujah and amen.
This is true because our promise-keeping GOD has made major room for my gift to go to a foreign nation. I will experience my first International Mission Trip to Ghana, Africa, in two and half weeks. Not only that, but GOD prepared a bonus for me. I will be part of an evangelist crusade preaching and teaching to the people of Ghana. I will also be visiting some orphanages and preschools. GOD also afforded me through “your” GIVING to plant a financial seed Blessing in the land, books, and school supplies for the children.
Yes, I stand in awe and say, “LOOK AT GOD…AND THANK YOU, GOD.”
God gave the gift of Jesus to us, and that gift opened our hearts to God. JESUS, the greatest gift, created the opportunity for us all to experience all the promises of GOD are yes and amen.
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
Thank you for Your gift to each one of your dear children. Thank you for the natural and spiritual open door policy for each individual to serve you all over Your world. - Amen in JESUS name.
