A Moment of Truth ❤️

Hi welcome!

This is the first time that I would be posting a thought on my blog as it came. Usually, I have a topic to talk about in mind and with the permission of the Holy Spirit, I share them on here. I think that my long absence here has made me have a re-think. I was already typing what you are about to read here, on my Whatsapp status and I jokingly said to myself that the rate at which I share things on Whatsapp, I am supposed to have a blog post every week! Those who have my direct contact would nod their heads in agreement.
Anyway, here we are, in my blog space, so grab a seat and get your notepad and heart ready (there ain’t no popcorn for what I am about to share, lol). I have to admit that I am happy writing to you again. As I always like to ask, how are you doing? I pray that this blog post meets you right where you are.

I’ve had this thought that I am about to share with you, for a very long time now and one thing I always do is to go over every thought that crosses my heart with Jesus, before I make a decision or act upon it; going over it with Jesus means double checking my motives and getting more clarity on it before I act or at the very least, write about it.

I am a music minister and every minister (whether music or not) hear this one thing almost all the time from one or two people from the audience and that is – “I was blessed by your ministration”. Well, I intend to start asking anyone who approaches me –“how”?

You think that would be too direct yeah? Oh! You are probably wondering why I’d ask that; self-glorification or som’n. Lol, that thought is faaaaaaaar from the truth. You see, I am truly beginning to wonder if people truly understand what it means to be ‘blessed’ in and by a ministration. My best friend made a post about gospel music videos in my part of the world, Nigeria, which paints the blessings and grace of God as ONLY moving from a one room apartment to a mansion and owning a fleet of cars –as true as the grace of God does elevate a man, His grace is not defined by material things only. And, just as many have a warped definition of God’s grace, they have a warped understanding of what it means to be blessed.

How were you blessed? It has to go beyond the goose bumps and the euphoric feeling that did not go past the ‘soulish’ realm. Music, first appeals to your soul before it hits your spirit and this is why many cannot successfully distinguish between ‘being blessed’ and ‘being emotionally attached’ to the songs or the charisma of whoever is leading.

Don’t tell me you were blessed because you felt the presence of God in that ministration, what did that presence do to you? What transpired in that moment? What went beyond your emotions to minister to your spirit? What did it change in you? What words did the presence speak to you? What word are you going to hold on to till you die from that ministration? How exactly were you blessed?

By the grace of God, I have grown a little deep with the Holy Spirit that I know when He is being ministered to by a music minister. We are one; so I feel what He feels –no bragging, I say this with all sense of humility. And, this is why it is rare for me to be elated and hyped when a song is fast paced, if it doesn’t minister to me, I will just sway left and right because my ascendance in the spirit is not determined by the drums or any instrument at that.

Every song has its anointing. Every song that has blessed the body of Christ till date got released with an anointing that would work and be effective even when they are not the one singing it. That is why, if Moses Bliss ‘too faithful’ is sung by someone who probably has no voice and has not been able to saturate the atmosphere with the God’s presence all the while that he has been there, the minute he raises that song or any song, you lift up your hands and your heart connects to the song –if the song is repeated about two or three times, you might find yourself on your knees and a deeper connection with the song because the anointing of/on that song is ministering to you.

The case is different when a person is ministering to you from their well coupled with the anointing of the song. Some ministers, ride on the anointing of the songs they sing and there is a charisma that just works perfectly with the song.

In cases like this, you, as the audience need to clearly discern if you were blessed by the ministration of that vessel or the song(s) or you were caught in the web of emotions and all that. Getting blessed in a ministration is a different experience for different people but the goal is to leave the meeting with a renewed mind –this is the proof that God was in meeting; a renewed mind, a decision to be and do better for God by the virtue of the minister’s ministration, a stronger faith in Jesus, an impartation, etc.

In a conversation with my best friend, she said “there are exceptions. The Holy Spirit might be working in your spirit and your mind does not know or understand it yet”. That’s true.

The aim of this blog post isn’t for ministers; it is for you. It is not to judge ministers. It is not to downgrade anyone. It is not to say that I am better than anyone. This word applies to me as much as it does to you.

Did you learn a new thing? Was your mind illuminated? Would you like to share a few thoughts on certain meetings in where you attended and you knew for sure that you weren’t blessed? How did you know that you weren’t blessed even when others seemed to be ‘blessed’ in that meeting?

  1. First of, thank you so much sis for sharing. God bless you!

    I would like to say this, while the word “i was blessed by your ministration” seems to be like a usual and general word people say after minister or a music minister finish his or her ministration. But then again, the decision to be blessed is dependent on the person too.

    Many times people say that out of sincerity and some for saying sake(lol). But for me, I have been taught to receive one can be in a place and not receive anything but still pretend like they have. The thing is you can encounter God and remain the same , same as you can’t go for a prayer meeting and after praying you still feel burdened. It’s like you have been complaining all along and not actually praying(lol).

    So when one has been ministered to, one must leave changed because when we gather as believers the goal is to edify, needs are to be met etc…….so if one says he or she is truly blessed it would be seen!
    Except if one hasn’t learn to RECEIVE.

    1. Thank you for reading sis! Thank you for your comments too

      And, yes, it is also dependent on the person. However, this post isn’t even to treat that aspect 😂. The goal of the post is for everyone to do a heart check if they were ministered to or had goosebumps. And, also a call to ministers to do better with their devotion to God so that they can truly let the rivers of living water flow from their bellies – people’s blessings are attached to their ministrations, they have to help the ministees to go from saying “I was blessed” from saying sake to actually meaning it.

      Yes, there are people who say out of sincerity too.

      Thank you for this angle too. I hope that someone sees it and know that they have a responsibility to also be in the posture to receive so they can be truly blessed.

  3. Thanks for this sis!!
    This piece made me relate to how people do use the word, ‘ I was blessed by your ministration’. I guess 80% of people say it to seek attention of the minister lol. Being blessed from my point of view is that if one was really blessed, one must take a decision that will change one’s life either positively or negatively. Also, being blessed in a ministration means there must be a connectivity between you and God. Being blessed in a ministration means one’s spirit got connected with God, for one to be able to hear from Him and for Him to open our eyes to see spiritually.

    Some people mistake being blessed and loving the rhythms of the song. Some people also don’t know when God is speaking and when the devil is so, from my point of view anyone can be blessed even an unbeliever can. So, my question is, how does an unbeliever know he/she is blessed?
    I know for sure one who has the Holyspirit can know if he / she is blessed.

  5. Hi sis! Thank you. Being blessed by songs, in meetings and under ministrations hmmmmm.

    Honestly, it’s been on my mind a lot and I only talk about it with my closest friends because not many understand what it means to actually be blessed.

    Because if I am blessed, it shouldn’t be easily forgotten after a few hours or days. It should cause me to make a decision, review something, do something, change something, not do something, I will know that I am not the same.

    I’ve had meetings I attended and I wasn’t blessed at all. Even though my emotions were appealed to.

    I’ve also had ministrations where I knew I wasn’t a blessing even though people walked up to me and said they were blessed. Because at the end of the day, my review comes from the holy spirit himself who has sent him and if he says I didn’t do what he wanted me to, I didn’t do well.

    I realize that accepting this truth is rather hard for some people because we think about the people ministering first, how they ministered before the ministration itself. We find it hard to accept that a ‘minster’ would minster and we wouldn’t be blessed!

    Like you said, many of us don’t even understand what it means to be blessed! What it means to truly fellowship with the holy spirit and so we quickly grab at anything that seems to be it.

    It’s a push to we minsters to do more. Because it’s a privilege to minster unto God and his people and nothing short of what God wants to be delivered should be rendered.

    Honestly I am grateful! Thank you for this post sis!

    Thank you. ♥️
