“Yay! Someone just started following me!.” exclaimed Adwoa to Nana.
“Really? Who is it?”
“Uh- I don’t know the person. But I am excited.” said Adwoa, scrolling through her social media.
Let’s face it; in these times, we are so concerned with how many followers to have that we are not at all concerned about who exactly is following us.
While that is all well and okay, in the start of this journey these questions have been impressed on my heart:
“What is following you?”
“Who is following you?”
And no, these are not at all social media related but when these questions are asked; the scripture that kept resounding is:
Surely, goodness and mercies shall follow me, all the days of my life (KJV Psalm 23:6)
And immediately, this was enlightened:
There are certain things following people all the days of their life…!
There are certain things following people all the days of their lives.
Let those words sink in deep.
Ever come across someone who enters into a church, group or room and suddenly it is as though the person has brought with them all bitterness, hurt, calamity, backbiting, anger, rage into the said space? Ever sought to ask yourself the question what is following them?
Dear Queen, in this Queen Esther Preparation journey, don’t be so concerned with the ton of followers you achieve on your social media but rather, be concerned with what is following you wherever you go.
What is following you into your marriage?
What is following you into your job?
What is following you in that dream or goal?
Its interesting to me that King David didn’t say, “Surely, the people of Israel shall follow me, all the days of my life.” or “Surely, the armies of Israel, shall follow me all the days of my life.”
Yet rather he stated: Surely, goodness and mercies shall follow me, all the days of my life (KJV Psalm 23:6)
Queen Esther entered the palace with the glory of God following and surrounding her. What of you?
Declare peace to follow you into your marriage!
Declare joy to follow you into your career!
Declare favour to follow you into your ministry!
10.k and above followers on social media is great; be thrilled! Yet rejoice all the more when you know the fruits of the Spirit are following and are with you all the days of your life!
I speak the blessings of the Lord to follow, surround and be with you all the days of your life even as you go through this journey!
May all the fruit of the spirit be your followers and be in you!
Jesus Love You and I do too,
Queens in Christ,
