Acts 13:2 KJV
As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
One of the dilemmas many young men face is knowing exactly when to break away and start a new life, a new ministry or a new home, etc. How does one just know which time is the right time?
Breaking away can be very perilous, whether it is a business, a church or a family. I have personally had ‘fights’ with some friends who have broken away to start their own churches, only to come running back with their tails between their legs.
The Apostles Barnabas and Saul proffer a template for us in how they went about a similar situation. As they ‘ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit spoke…’
To minister to the Lord is to attend to the needs, take care of, tend, serve or wait on the Lord. As they did these, the Spirit intervened.
Don’t leave out the inputs of the Holy Spirit at major crossroads of your life. Don’t make those decisions with your carnal minds. Stick to the template as a believer, no matter how foolish it may seem, you are sure of one thing, the end will be brighter.
Have a blessed day #CarllyDevotionals
