Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalms 48:12-13 (KJV) Walk about Zion and go round about her: tell the towers thereof. Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
As a child of God, you are a pattern to those of this world by virtue of your dwelling place in God. Ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel (Hebrews 12:22-24).
Because of your spiritual habitation, your ministry is supposed to teach men how ministry is done; your business is supposed to teach men how business is done; your vision is supposed to teach men how visions are executed.
Some children of God start visions, ministries and businesses without understanding the divine patterns of these things and as such, their labours are incapable of constituting a message to the generations to come.
But our theme scripture instructs us to walk about Zion. It means that it is expected of every child of God to walk in the spirit, understand that world, its blue prints, its foundations and its streets.
Acquaintance with the world of spirits is what makes you a pattern because the things which are seen are made by the things that are not seen. Creation starts in the spiritual world before it is manifested in the physical world.
Walk about Zion, understand the pattern of things: how business is built, how ministry is increased, how marriage is sustained and then start to build. Hallelujah!

You are a pattern to this world by virtue of your dwelling place in God. Your ministry is supposed to teach men how ministry is done; your business is supposed to teach men how business is done; your vision is supposed to teach men how visions are executed.
PRAYER: Father, I am back to the drawing board so that you may reveal to me the patterns. I am tired of living a life of chance; show me pattern by pattern and I will follow. I rest from using my own mind and my reason. Tell me what principles I must apply to build ministry, to do business, in marriage, in my career and everything I do. You have said that I will hear a voice saying, ‘this is the way, go ye in it.’ Your voice is enough. You spoke to Abraham and his life changed. You spoke to Jacob and his life changed. You turned your face to Moses and his life changed. I cannot hear your voice and stay the same. I yield to the leading of your Spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
