“Because you dare to believe God, you will not see disaster; the devil cannot accuse you and just as a judge cannot judge his own child, God our Father will not judge us or throw us away.” These were the words of Pastor Nomthi Odukoya at the October 16 Sunday service. She said this while sharing the promise for week which is taken from the Book of Zephaniah 3:15.
To drive home the message, Pastor Nomthi shared her childhood experience on when she was asked by some adults in her home to wash her mother’s glass cups. As a five year old child, she could not have a firm grip on the slippery cups as she washed and they fell and shattered to pieces. When her mother returned home, these same people told her to go report herself to her mom. When she did, expecting to be punished, her mom did not punish or judge her but instead queried those who sent a five year old child to wash glass cups.
Pastor Nomthi used this example to show believers that in the same way as children of the most High God, the enemy may want to accuse us but just as God has promised in Zephaniah 3:15, He will not judge us, rather, He will restore us.
PASTOR NOMTHI’S WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT @THURSDAY SHOWERS
Pastor Nomthi Odukoya in an unusual leading by Holy Spirit, enjoined believers to confess the following over their lives:
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death; and so sin shall not have dominion over me; for the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, dwells inside of me and quickens my mortal body to the glory of His Holy name.”
This confession is culled from Romans 8:2; 6:14 and 8:11.
Worshippers confessed these scriptures a number of times as the Spirit led.
