JOSEPH PRINCE SERMON FEEL DISQUALIFIED GOD CAN USE YOU : According to the lead pastor and co-founder of New Creation Church, pastor Joseph Prince, ”in the kingdom of God, God is telling you, “This is what I’ll do for you,” Grace is not what you can do. In fact, God will tell you, “Please don’t do anything, because there’s nothing I want.” Nothing you do can produce the result that God wants, So, God says to receive from me, you don’t have to do anything, It’s the only kingdom that does that.
In all the parables of Jesus, the protagonist of the parables are always the prodigal or the losers or the last, the least, the lost, They are the ones that win the best, they are the ones that get the blessings, they are the ones that enjoy his favour.
The lost or the last will become the first, or the least of these seeds can move a mountain. You know, when you come to the presence of the Lord like we do, church is not a building but church is the gathering of God’s people, “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them.” And we come to celebrate the Lord Jesus Christ because he’s altogether lovely, when you go to work, you know that you’re going to a work in an environment where you’re supposed to put out your conduct, your behaviour, and what you do is paramount. Who you are, what you are, is not important. When they interview you, they interview you based on what you can bring to that company, not what the company can do for you and the moment you lose that capacity or you’re no longer profitable, and then you’re no longer of use in that position. They might not put you out of the company, they might relocate you but again, it’s like telling you are no more profitable and that’s how they assess you.
Unfortunately this is the world that our children are stepping into, it’s the world’s system, right? But in the kingdom of God when you lose your usefulness and your capacity to produce or you go through seasons whereby you are going through a valley, a valley season and you don’t feel like praying, you don’t feel like doing anything, you probably are under attack or maybe not, it’s your own foolishness, Whatever it is, you’re going through that dark time. The Lord never leaves us, nor forsakes us.
The psalmist David in his Psalm 23, most people’s favourite psalm, “The Lord is my shepherd.” Notice when it starts off that psalm, he says, “The Lord,” he speaks in the third person, “The Lord is my shepherd,” like he’s talking to you, he’s telling you. “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not lack, I have everything I nee, He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me, besides the still waters. He restores my soul, He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” And then he comes to this, he’s going through the valley now, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.” So, that’s a dark season, isn’t it? But notice, he changes from the third person to the second person. He’s talking to the Lord directly now. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me, your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.” So, when it comes to your valley times, it’s a time to talk to the Lord.
Pastor Joseph Prince wants us to know that even when you feel frustrated, even when you find that find that you don’t even have a prayer left in you and you don’t know what’s going on, you can just tell him, “Lord, I don’t have a prayer,” but talk to him, Tell him like David, “You are with me. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
