Keeping Your Vineyard (Keeping Your Heart) – Pastor Vale Odu-Thomas
“There are things that reduce us as a weapons for God. Humility increases grace and our effectiveness as weapons in the hand of God. There are routine things you do to maintain your car, it is the same in the spiritual realms”.
This was how Esteemed Pastor Vale Odu-Thomas started his great message on keeping your vineyard. He read Proverbs 4:23 to drive home his point “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
“Guard your heart wth all diligence. Not every thought that comes to you should be meditated upon. Som are fiery darts to reduce your effectiveness. It’s important to keep your vineyard. There are things that should not stay there over night before they start producing other sins”.
Sounding a note of warning to delegates, he stated that there are words we hear and go and wash ourselves with the word of God. He reminded the partners that were aptly listening to his uncommon words that they are targets for the devil because they are partner with our Man of God and with our ministry. He advised the delegates that when money comes to them, their first thought should be how to give it.
“Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.” 1 Timothy 4:15.
