Andrew Wommack is living proof that nothing is impossible for a person whose life is surrendered to the Lord.
Although Andrew’s face can be seen on media outlets throughout the world, Andrew Wommack remains a simple man with a simple Gospel message. And while Andrew Wommack Ministries has grown into a worldwide ministry and has changed countless lives, that growth hasn’t happened overnight.
As we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Andrew’s encounter with the Lord on March 23, 1968, we also commemorate fifty years of miracles and lessons, leaps of faith and mistakes, growing pains, and supernatural provision. What God has brought Andrew through, we can easily learn from to discover our own true identities in Christ and to walk in the blessing of God.
You don’t reach fifty years of ministry without being committed. It takes endurance and a foundation on something stronger than the opposition of the world. Andrew’s foundation is his reliance on the Author and Perfecter of his faith (Heb. 12:2). He challenges us to put our trust not in his latest teaching series, but in the hands of the only One who will never fail us.
Andrew has been a constant in my life, teaching me that no matter my circumstances, no matter how I feel, and no matter what season of life I am in, God’s Word is still true. I don’t have to be tossed around by any of these things. I can stand firm in my faith and on the unshakable truth of His Word.
Throughout the uncertainties of this life, Andrew has been a steady reminder of God’s unconditional love and grace for me. He always points me back to God and the simplicity of His truth and promises for my life. Even when I get distracted in my walk with God or get caught up in the latest spiritual craze to hit the church world, I once again find my identity, my hope, and my future, not in Andrew, but in the One he points me to.
Although Andrew’s ministry has changed a lot over the years, the one thing that remains constant is his message of God’s love. Why? Because he discovered long ago that it’s God’s love that saves the lost, heals the sick, and prospers our souls; it’s the crux of everything this ministry is. And love never fails (1 Cor. 13:8)!
As we celebrate this fiftieth anniversary, we are honoring fifty years of God using one simple man to share this simple truth with the world: the Father loves them.
Don’t miss this week of special Gospel Truth broadcasts, March 19-23, 2018 as we share the story of Andrew’s journey through fifty years of ministry. Each story—old and new—will show you what God can do through one person whose heart is committed to Him (2 Chr. 16:9). We know you’ll be inspired!
