Speaking from Psalm 91:9-10 which is the promise for the week, Pastor Nomthi told the congregation at the April 28 Sunday service that believers who dwell in the secret place of the Most High would never be harmed by afflictions or plagues. “No matter the affliction that comes our way, we have confidence in our God that it would not harm us because we have made Him our dwelling place,” she said.
Using the three Hebrews boys in the fiery furnace as an example, she said that God will never allow His children who put their total trust in Him be put to shame. She therefore urged them to always put their trust in God who is able to protect them from all evil. “No matter the scare around the country, it will not come near you because you dwell in the secret place of the Most High. You are protected and safe under the shadow of His wings,” she stated.
WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT FROM PASTOR NOMTHI
While admonishing the worshippers at the April 25 Thursday Showers service from Colossians 2:14-15, Pastor Nomthi said that believers are winners all the time and therefore should not allow the devil to intimidate them.
According to her, the devil usually wants to make Christians believe that they are losers when situations seem difficult or prayers look not answered, but that’s when they should remember that they are forever victorious in Christ and the devil is their slave.
She used the example of a football match where a team’s joy over a scored goal is cancelled because it is offside to show that the devil’s seeming mockery over believers is not real because it is an offside goal. “The devil is forever offside; you have been given power over him. So don’t be afraid of him because he is your slave and is under you,” she said.
