The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #13 - Understanding the Ministry of Reconciliation and How It Prepares You for Your Ministry
Some of the greatest lessons I've learned have come from people who didn't like me or my work.
Back in 2017, I signed a coaching contract to work with a group of women in Sacramento who wanted to create a ministry around an anthology they wanted to publish.
I was truly excited about this project, because it was the first major one that I felt could catapult my business in the region. I wanted other ministry leaders to witness the impact of my teaching on Christian Writerpreneurship and book publishing; and I knew this contract would be the one to open the doors.
Prior to this new assignment, I had received a word from the Lord regarding my need to fulfill my vow. The Holy Spirit shared with a fellow prophet that I was called to empower women publicly, and that I needed to begin working on that message soon.
Little did I know this specific message would come only after experiencing another major setback.
During one of my group coaching sessions with the women, the gifts of the Spirit were in full operation. I began "reading the women's mail" and ministering to them based on the word of wisdom and knowledge I received.
That meeting was supposed to last for three hours; but it quickly turned into a six-hour "camp meeting."
The women were thoroughly impressed, not by my works but by the ministry that went forth. And as can be expected, whenever the Spirit of the Lord is moving, the enemy will come to snatch that word and that experience.
Days after the meeting, the woman spearheading the project called me. She wanted to talk to me about something one of the other women found on the Internet about me. In other words, she wanted to talk to me about my criminal caseand to find out if the story was true.
Now, at the time, I hadn't thought much about the matter. I was so focused on building my business that the last thing I wanted to address was that issue. But I obliged as much as a I could, and told her that no, those stories were not accurate; and while I was arrested, the charges against me were dropped.
Apparently, that wasn't enough information for her and some of the women; and they practically demanded I give them more details or risk losing the contract. For the first time in years, I could feel that old "oppressive" spirit trying to control me again. It was that same spirit that said, "If you don't do what I want, I will hurt you." That's essentially I how I felt when this new contract began to turn.
Rather than wasting my time going through the mental anguish that I had spent years overcoming, I decided to cancel the contract and move on. Many of the women were distraught about my decision; but I basically told them if they can't learn to see me through the eyes of the Spirit and to assess my character based on the information I've already supplied, then I'm not the coach for them.
Ironically, it was through this interaction that The Holy Ghost and You Ministry emerged. It was through this encounter that I learned the true meaning of the ministry of reconciliation and why it is so important to master before anyone ever considers becoming a minister of the faith.
During this next presentation, my guest speaker, Sherise Smith, will show you how to employ reconciliation with your ministry. Sharing her testimony of triumph, you will learn why now's the time to exercise this gifts, especially as we engage in this end-time revival and national reformation.
