Psalms 89:34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. KJV
Once I say it, then it comes to pass. I do not tempt or tease my children with false hopes or false promises. My Word has no equals in speed, accuracy, or power. There is no greater force in the universe than the words that come out of my mouth. It is the life of all mankind’s true existence. It destroys the vain life and it creates permanence for the transient, wandering soul. It calms the restless, satisfies the empty, and eliminates the recurring contentions of life. If I say it, I will do it. I cannot tell a lie, just like water cannot be dirt. I cannot be defeated, deceived, tempted, or diminished. No one has My wisdom, strength, or power. Those who claim it will always disappear. I have formed a partnership with you, and it will never be broken. We are one. What I have is yours. Use it to do good. Bless someone as I have blessed you.
Prophesy by Pastor Ivan Tait of “what matters ministries and missions” to his ministry partners and subscribers on 6th January 2010.
As I picked up the keyboard to send the invitation letter to be a contributor to this project, I was thinking to myself, it has been well over 11years since I spoke with her, will she have the time?, will she be willing? Then, something inside of me just said, “What do you have to lose?” Thanks to Facebook, I got her email address and sent it and there was no reply. I left it for a couple of weeks, then I was talking to my sister one day and she said “I think Danielle mentioned receiving some questions from you”, immediately I finished with my sister on the phone, I went to my mail box and there she was online and I thought let’s do it.
When I called her, first thing I reminded her was one of my encounters with her when I was a teenager. You see, Danielle was my older sister’s friend and once, I had gone to see my sister at the university for the weekend. So, Danielle took me to the school theatre to watch a play. (She was being nice to her friend’s little sister), not wanting me to be bored. While we were at the theatre, she told me “Don’t be like your sister” and I laughed it off. This is because my sister was a born again Christian, even when it was not cool to be so, and would be classed as boring. Even I considered her boring then. But, she always stood her ground for what she believed in. As I reminded Danielle of this age long advice, she was surprised and said “Wow! I said that?” and we both laughed it off. I have heard my sister and her husband talk about how Danielle and her husband were impacting on the lives of the youth in their community and making admirable success in their lives. So, I thought, let me talk to her myself, and I definitely was not prepared for the blessings I got from conducting the interview. Sometimes, you know what scripture says, yes it is head knowledge, yes you know you need to carry it out, but when you come in contact with people who are actually living it, that completely blows your mind away.
