Be steadfast!

According to the dictionary, to be steadfast means to be firm, not shakable, fixed, unchanging, firmly loyal, and unswerving.
In the book of Acts 10:1-4 (by the way, I implore you to read the whole chapter), we read the story of a man known as Cornelius, the bible records that he gave much alms to the poor and prayed to God ALWAYS (verse 2). If you go on to read verse 3-4, it talks about how his alms and prayers were remembered by God, and subsequently, many people, including Cornelius were filled with the Holyspirit (verse 44, 46).
As a result of one man’s CONTINUOUS prayers and charity works, many people became filled with the Holyspirit. That was a new beginning for all those people that day. I’m pretty certain that all those people must have gone on to impact their world and make a difference. But all this was possible because of one man (Cornelius) who was steadfast in his walk with God, his prayers and charity works. Note that, Cornelius continued to do this good works, but it wasn’t until that certain day that the angel of the Lord visited him.
Are you getting weary of praying, giving generously, evangelizing, helping and serving others, or whatever good it may be that you are doing? DON’T give up now! Keep at it. Hebrews 6:10 says ‘For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of[a] love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister’. Again’ always remember that you are serving God and he’s the one to reward you, not man, though, He could do it through man.
Recently, I got weary about this blogging, I was tired. I wasn’t even sure if it was blessing anyone or making any impact, but thank God for good friends He’s given me. Now, I’ve made up my mind to press on and move on. I’m not going to give up; not now, not ever! As it says in Ecclesiastes 3:1, there’s a season to everything.  Galatians 6:9 ‘And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. It says in DUE season, we shall reap, but if and only if we do not lose heart. In other words, if we do not quit or give up. Don’t get tired, if you need strength to carry on, draw up from the Word. Confess Zechariah 4:6, Philippians 4:13 and many others into your life and the situation.
Press on!

  2. Tomi, thank u so much! your blog impacts me dear! I remember the one u wrote about the story of the guy that went to save his sis in south Africa and hw u tied it back to our salvation.

    Its the devil, that put thoughts in our mind that we are not impacting when we ACTUALLY are. He knows u have started something great and isn't pleased about it, so he tries to decieve u! Speak the word of God!
