Featuring my mentor Pastor Audrey Ropafadzo Makoni
“l tell you of a Prince walking on foot while servants ride on horses,
Not only horses but white horses,
I tell you of royalty alternating legs on dusty terrain while the servants ride on elegance, luxury and golden chariots,
I tell you of royalty oozing with sweat and tiredness while the servant swims in comfort, freshness and relaxation,
I speak of a Prince whose heart pumps royal blood yet he walks in oblivion,
Unaware of the power that rests in him”.
This Sunday we look at royal blood becoming loyal blood so that royalty serves the servant. I unveil to you a virtuous woman who sings sweetness not only to the ear but also to the mind through her indelible voice of inspiration. She is an accomplished woman whose music qualifies to be played on this station. She is an established business woman who makes a formidable team with her husband Dr Makoni. The amplitude of her voice resonates with the goals and visions of this establishment which seek to strategically position people in a place of royalty. I have no doubt that you will indeed find pleasure in listening to her voice. Today’s inaugural Sunday Special revolves around a life changing sermon that she preached. Please welcome Pastor Audrey Ropafadzo Makoni.
The auditorium was packed to full capacity as she took to the stage. She was dressed in an executive black outfit that bore some botanic glittery ornaments whose sparkle identified with royalty. Suddenly a man on a bicycle invaded the stage so that he rode straight to her. However he maneuvered his two circles so that they came to a screeching halt right next to her. Within seconds four tough men in dark suits and dark glasses took to the stage. They looked like body guards but their step was that of men who own gold mines. One could have expected them to manhandle this man on a bicycle but instead they gracefully stood next to this woman dressed in black. She called the men in black princes and the other on a bicycle a servant. This was ironic, how could a servant ride on wheels whilst royalty tiptoed on foot. After a while all the five men left the stage leaving this woman alone. The man on a bicycle then found his way back on stage. He was then followed by one of the man in dark suits. This prince wore a golden tie so that he walked straight to the servant. Without wasting time he confiscated the bicycle, sat on the saddle then rode off the stage after missing a pedal. The servant then left the stage on foot.
This is a true story that happened in Pastor Audrey’s power packed sermon. She used drama to provoke the minds of the people to think big. The bicycle depicts a white horse. The irony of the matter is unveiled in the realization of the fact that a servant rode on a horse meant for the prince. The Prince bore all characteristics of royalty yet he never utilized the power vested on him. The men in dark glasses were so breathtakingly smart yet they tip toed on foot. They were princes yet they watched servants enjoy the luxury and comfort meant for them. Pastor Audrey clearly led people to a place of self evaluation where one would want to snap out of slumber in pursuit of a worthwhile destiny. Royal blood cannot be loyal blood so that it bows down to servants. People are self determining entities created in the image of the Almighty. We are sons and daughters of the King so it means we are royalty.
Royal blood cannot be loyal to unpleasant situations. Royal blood cannot make us victims of circumstances but instead it makes us victors. It is time to possess what God has given us. It is time to confiscate our white horses from the servants. An interesting point to note is that the Prince in a golden tie missed the pedal after taking the bicycle from the servant. He almost fell down but he instead found his way and pedaled on. This signals the danger of letting servants ride the white horse for so long. You can lose your touch but still you must find your way and conquer. The time has come to take back what was lost; a time has come to harvest tones of happiness. A time has come for Businesses to grow. This is a season to be fruitful. We cannot continue to sleep at a time when there is need to awaken the strong will in us.
We are clothed in royalty. Royalty calls for visionary people, a people who will not sleep until they get it right; a people who will always have the enthusiasm to rise again after failing so many times. A royal people understand that success is nothing compared to failure after failure without loss of enthusiasm. Royalty calls for princes to take charge of their horses, it calls for dreamers whose dreams never die. Such dreams energize them at their point of weakness. Such dreams lead them to restoration and they lead them to Destiny.
I trust that you were blessed by today’s issue. Let us meet again next Sunday for another edition of “The Sunday Special”.
