When we started preparing for ministry like 17 years ago , the advantage we had was there was no social media , YouTube did not even exist so we had the chance to seek the face of God without thinking “let me hurry and put this picture of mine on FB or insta ” this is my advice to you the up and coming ones , 1:take time off social media , 2: be patient and wait for your time 3: don’t fake emotions for caption sake 4: wait on the lord , once you Start working on all these you will begin to experience the rough roads, (that’s also part of the test) … To fill a stadium not one but 2 back to back was not an overnight job it took me almost 18years of preparation.. We will continue tomorrow … For those who started without social media and have paid their price, this is what you also do , jump on it and take advantage of it, don’t be all spiritual with it, it’s an Internet world , your followers need to hear from you, if you can’t use it , pay someone to run it for u.”
