Apostle Grace Lubega
Acts 5:12(AMP); At the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders (attesting miracles) were continually taking place among the people. And by common consent they all met together [at the temple] in [the covered porch called] Solomon’s portico.
The Christian church started from Solomon’s porch. A porch is quite a small part of a building. In fact, there is nothing grand or large about it.
It was a small beginning to some but what mattered is that it was an anointed beginning.
From this porch, miracles, signs, and wonders happened.
From this porch, the body of Christ has grown to become a force advancing against the gates of hell, paralyzing demons and snatching people out of the clutches of the enemy.
From this porch, the church has built cathedrals, cities, hospitals, and education institutions.
From this porch, the church of Christ has reached multitudes, shaken nations, and touched the entire world.
Child of God, it does not matter where you begin from or what you begin with. What matters is WHO you begin with.
Don’t fret over your beginning simply because it is much too small compared to the grand vision in your spirit.
Beginnings are significant, not because of their size, but who is behind them. What made the church explode out of the confines of a porch is because the Almighty God was their master.
As long as you understand the God in you and with you, He will give you the world for a stage.
His name be praised!

GOLDEN NUGGET: It does not matter where you begin from or what you begin with. What matters is WHO you begin with. Beginnings are significant, not because of their size, but who is behind them.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. You are the God who multiplies and increases me in everything that I do. I know that my path is upward and upward only because You are in me, You are with me and You are for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
