Patience Museveni Rwabwogo, the lead Pastor of Covenant Nations Church – Kampala has advised Christians saying no one should make peace with something that is “evil or opposed to the things of God.”
The 40-year-old thought her shared sermon titled ‘God’s Favour’ noted that fighting spiritual warfare to evict the kingdom of darkness is what must be done before there is true lasting peace.
“If we are afraid of confronting darkness, we are never really going to have peace,” she said.
Patience, who is the second daughter to President Yoweri Museveni noted that the towering giants of the Bible may be ancient history, but God’s people today still experience battles with ragging giants including sin.
“We have to confront sin, we cannot live side by side with it or co-exist with it,” she said.
From the bible book of Numbers, Pastor Patience explained that at 85, Caleb was spry and determined and ready to do the impossible. She narrated how he wandered through the wilderness for 40 years, motivated by a promise from God of the promised land.
“Caleb couldn’t make peace or have a covenant with the giants. One kingdom has to uproot the other. There is no spiritual vacuum, if a space is not occupied by the kingdom of God, it is occupied by the kingdom of darkness. There is a principality and you have to go out and drive it out in order to posses the land,” she said.
Patience revealed that some break thoughts and miracles take time, however Christians should understand that God can use such incidences to stretch our faith.
“Not every answer to prayer is instant. Sometimes God has to stretch us and stretch our faith. For many, when it does not happen as quicky as we hopped, or as much as you believed, what do you do?” she wondered.
