For God To Increase Your Harvest, You Need To Take A Step Of Faith

This is indeed rightly said. I remember those days when I was newly starting to reap the benefits of having to stick firmly to my catholic faith. The rewards came in various forms but they never forgot to come along with their thorns and thistles.

Embracing a new form of life, a new type of thinking, with more security and lots and lots of peace can be overwhelming but truth be told, one wouldn’t have found that ‘narrow path’ talked about in Matthew 7: 14 without first, taking that step of faith.

The head of publicity for this year’s harvest of great mercy, Mr Obijiaku Obinna, during his weekly address to the congregation, did his best to inspire and motivate the people to see the importance of taking that step of faith by coming to book for their individual family harvest thanksgiving.


Earlier, his colleague in the publicity team, Miss Awele Ojogwu during the 7.00 am mass, stressed on the need to let the Holy Spirit lead, regardless of the seeming difficulties.

‘We as Christians have been called to take territories, to push God to look in our direction,’ she said.

The priest celebrating the mass, Rev. Fr. Bertrand Ujunwa, who also happens to be the priest in residence spoke about the bold step Mary, the sister of Martha took in the gospel reading of the day (Luke 10: 38 – 42). While Martha was busying herself with his welfare, Mary quietly sat at the feet of Jesus listening, learning.

‘Been anxious about everything shows a lack of confidence in the saving power of God. Worrying about everything shows we lack the needed faith to trust God to show up on time,’ he said.

Taking that step of faith doesn’t necessarily mean making a financial pledge but allowing God set the ball rolling. Most times we are in so much of a hurry to dictate our plans to God not necessarily taking some time out to understand what He actually has in stock for us.

Jeremiah 29: 11 says God’s plans for us are that which we hope for, which we dream of. So lending a helping hand today, making that phone call, replying that SMS or even, showing up at someone’s door today might be, your own step of faith.

So what are you waiting for?

Stay blessed!
