Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Corinthians 9:26 (KJV); I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air.
Ministry is a pattern.
As a minister of the gospel, I do not build the ministry like one who doesn’t know where he is going and how to get there.
I must have a DIVINE ROAD MAP and BLUE PRINT.
I know WHAT I must do, HOW I must do it and WHEN I must do it.
There are milestones that the Lord has set for every ministry and the minister ought to recognise them.
If you don’t know the patterns of how ministry grows, you are as one whom the theme scripture says runs with uncertainty or beats the air.
In ministry, we do not ASSUME that if we do such and such a thing then maybe the people will come to church or the anointing will increase.
We do not ASSUME that if we copy a certain minister then we will have his results.
No, even if one imitates another minister, those very imitations must be in the TRUE PATTERNS of ministry.
You have to build ministry with certainty and have a place of affirmation of the things you do, HOW you do them and WHY you do them. Hallelujah!

Ministry is a pattern. You have to build ministry with certainty and have a place of affirmation for the things you do, HOW you do them and WHY you do them.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for such priceless wisdom. It builds in me the true character of the minister, one who understands the patterns and has regard for the ancient land marks set by those before me. I build with certainty and with the affirmation of the Word and the Spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
