PASTOR NOMTHI’S WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT @ THURSDAY SHOWERS
Pastor Nomthi at the December 14 Thursday Showers service told the worshippers that the Word of God gives life and strength. According to her, every Word of God that comes to a child of God brings life. “Your Father cannot lie. So believe His Word because it will produce life for you,” she stated.
Speaking from John 6:63 and using classic experiences of worshippers as illustrations, she said that God’s children ought always to believe His Word. “Just as a student believes his or her teacher, so should you believe and trust your Father against whatever the devil, an outsider, is saying to you,” she said.
PASTOR NOMTHI’S WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT @ SUNDAY SERVICES
Speaking from the promise of the week in Luke 12:24, Pastor Nomthi at the December 17 Sunday services said that every child of God is valuable. According to her, if God can take care of animals and nonliving things, He will definitely take care of His children whom He made in His image and bought with the precious blood of Jesus. “You are so important in the eyes of God, so there is no reason why you should not trust Him,” she said.
She stated that believers ought to trust God, irrespective of their situations or circumstances, because He is not a man that can disappoint or break one’s heart. “Don’t equate man with God; He is faithful and will always take care of you no matter what happens. So don’t forget who you are in Christ, He will take care of you and the works of your hands,” she stated.
Pastor Nomthi, while sharing the promise of the week in 1 Corinthians 15:58 with the congregation at the December 10 Sunday service, said that believers should never be tired of serving God and giving their best service because He will always reward them. “God is not unrighteous to forget your labour of love. So be steadfast, irrespective of the hurdles,” she said.
According to her, God knows that there would be challenges that would attempt to distract their focus from Him, hence He gave the instruction for them to be steadfast in Him, irrespective of whatever happens around them. She therefore urged them to be confident in the Lord and reply the devil with God’s word. “Always confess what your teacher, the Lord, tells you. Don’t listen to any other person,” she stated.

Speaking from 1 Samuel 12:16, Pastor Nomthi at the November 30 Thursday Showers service said that God’s victory for His children is always preceded by instructions. This is why a child of God should not be worried or shaken but obey His instruction which is to stand still and watch Him defend him or her. (more…)
Speaking from Zephaniah 3:19 which is the promise for the week, Pastor Nomthi at the November 26 Sunday service said that God’s children have been given the right to possess their Promised Land because God has removed every obstacle on their way. “Those who plan your shame will sing your praises, because this is your time of restoration,” she stated.
According to her, God always glorifies Himself in the lives of His children and singles them out for His glory. She therefore urged them to trust God for their blessings because He will do it.
“Leave no room for doubt; this is your time. He has given His promise to you, and it will definitely come to pass,” she said.
Taking the promise for the week from John 16:24, Pastor Nomthi encouraged the congregation at the November 19 Thanksgiving service to keep asking from God so that their joy might be full. She illustrated with an incident during a family holiday. On entering an elevator which was to take them to the floor of their hotel room, another man who was in there pressed the button to his own floor. Her son who was supposed to press the button to their own floor decided not press their floor number thinking whatever number the man pressed would take them to their own floor.
Pastor Nomthi likened each floor of that building to each person’s purpose in life. “Everyone has their own floor (purpose to fulfil). Just as you cannot follow another person to their floor, you can’t go chasing after other people’s purpose,” she said.
She therefore urged the congregation to keep asking and keep pressing for themselves so that their joy might be full.
While exhorting the congregation at the November 12 Sunday service from the promise of the week which was taken from Matthew 7:7-8, Pastor Nomthi said that believers have a duty to seek in order to find; ask in order to receive and knock in order for the door to be opened to them. (more…)
Pastor Nomthi encouraged the congregation of the October 22 Sunday service that as covenant children of God, they are entitled to the promise of God in Amos 9:13 which also is the Promise for the Week. Using the illustration of the board game Snake & Ladder, she explained that when God’s blessings come on His children, they defy the natural protocol of going round the normal road but speedily accelerate to the top-just as the ladder does for the player in the game. She also noted that God will not allow the enemies, which she likened to the snakes, to destroy such blessings. “This is how things will happen so fast for you,” she said.
PASTOR NOMTHI’S WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT @THURSDAY SHOWERS
While exhorting the worshippers of the October 19 Thursday Showers service, Pastor Nomthi said that there is no reason for a child of God to change his or her identity because of challenges of life; whether rejection or societal pressure.
Speaking from Isaiah 45:9-10, she said that God has made them beautiful according to His pattern and any self-made alteration would attract consequences. “Never listen to the deceit of the devil to change whom God has created you to be. You are good the way God created you,” she said.
She also noted that God expects His children to be content with whom they are and what they have. This, according to her, doesn’t mean they cannot go to God to make their request known in thanksgiving. She therefore urged them to be proud of their heritage because God has a purpose for creating them the way He did. “Don’t add anything to God creation, allow God handle it because He can handle any situation,” she said.
