Dear Pastor/Church Leader, you need to understand a few things about your church service this past weekend…
What happened in your church services over the weekend was AWESOME.
Yes, "that" service…where all of "that" stuff happened.
The one that MAYBE made you want to quit the ministry.
You've been doubting yourself, wondering why you do what you do…praying that people might actually come back next week and beating yourself up over things you should have said…or things you did say that you should not have said.
You are discouraged because you go online and look at other churches and see where hundreds of people are giving their lives to Christ…and you are BEGGING God for that, but you are just not seeing it yet…and are beginning to wonder if God has forgotten you.
BUT…just remember that God has you in a humble place so that He can prosper you (see Job 8:7)…and He has you hidden for the purpose of developing you into someone great (Isaiah 49:2).
He has NOT given up on you…He knows exactly where you are and has called you there "for such a time as this!"
Hold your head up and keep your eyes on Him…He who called you IS faithful.
Sometimes He allows us to see what happens…but most of the time the work He is doing is in their hearts…and that takes time for us to see.
There will be "seasons of fruit" and "seasons of root"…and when you're not seeing the fruit then its a time for us to focus on the ROOT!
Keep preaching God's Word and HE WILL honor it (Isaiah 55:8-13), no weapon formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17) and He has GREATER plans for you than you could EVER imagine (Isaiah 49:6!)
