Who am I that You are Mindful of Me?
by Dr. Dominic Dixon
“What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” Psalm 8:4
God Mindful of Man
“Mindful” comes from the Hebrew word zakar, to mark or
remember continually, as perpetual incense rising; to set the heart
upon; to keep continually in merciful view.
This has been my dilemma every single day as God, in His infinite
mercy upholds me with His righteous right hand. What are we,
that God should be mindful of us?
God has commissioned me to sometimes travel seven provinces in
seven days on missions, sometimes, over night journeys just to
reach out to a single family or a single soul. At these moments, I
can only but ask, “God, why do I have to travel such distances for
just one person?” in asking that question I get my answer, that He
is mindful of them!
During one of my outreaches in Sri Lanka, as I was preaching in the
open air, I paused for a moment, then went to young man and told
him this “you should have been dead, but the Lord spared your life”
His mother came from behind and said “yes, he should have been
dead as he was shot in the head while serving in the LTTE” I led that
boy to Christ, and today, he’s serving the Lord. Who was that boy,
that the Lord took a terrorist and turned him into an Evangelist? There
have been other rebels whom I had led to the Lord, who now serve
as peace officers with the United Nations.
Whether I dialogue with top police officials, ambassadors of
countries or political ministers, I sometimes feel the urge in getting
the love and truth about Christ to them. I have found it easier to
get the true message of Christ to non believers than in getting the
truth to Charismatics who live double standards. My team and I
were able to prove the love of Christ to the Indian Ambassador of
Kuwait, other political ministers and the President of India, when
we rescued an Indian lady who was illegally kept under house
arrest in Kuwait. When the man who had arrested the woman
asked Nancy our Kuwait leader, why she does what she does, she
During one of my open forum debates on ethics, a vibrant young
lawyer argued with me about speaking the truth at any cost. She
told me that it was impossible in her profession and that without
lies and bribes, it’s impossible to be a successful lawyer. During
the debate, I was bugged that she had such strong points but it was
not of the right view. In the end, I had led her to the truth and that
evening, she bowed her head and made her commitment to Christ
and vowed to walk in the truth. I started to mentor her and found
her to be a woman of truth. I then recommended her to work for
one of the largest International justice organisations which rescue
bonded labourers, especially children.
Just a few weeks ago I had seen her on National news television
rescuing over forty bonded labourers while a mob of over two
hundred people had attacked her and her team and surrounded
their vehicles. I saw her stand in that crowd without a hint of fear.
She had called me from there and she said that she was not scared
for she was doing what God had called her to do. You see, God
was mindful of this young lawyer that He gave me the patience to
reason the truth with her. God had her in mind to rescue those
bonded labourers that He was mindful of!
Today, in her mid-twenties, this young lawyer is one of the most
influential lawyers around who dialogues with officials in high
rank on a daily basis, telling them what’s right and what’s not.
You may be a drop in the ocean. But every drop adds up to the
ocean because God has called every drop to fill up the bowl of the
ocean. In the same way, you may be one amongst millions, but
God has called you to add up to those millions of people. Since
He has singularly called you, He is singularly mindful of you!
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us. - St.
Once a missionary, Jaipaul, in the US had gone to a store. At the
counter to pay his bill, he noticed that the cashier’s name was
Sarah, so he said “Hi Sarah, Jesus loves you” then said, “even my
wife’s name is Sarah. Do you know Jesus, Sarah?” Sarah replied
by saying that she used to know Jesus, but now is deep into sin.
So Jaipaul & his wife invited Sarah for a meal. At the meal, Sarah
narrated her story.
She said that her father was a Pastor of a large Church several
years ago. One day he fell in adultery and was thrown out of the
Church. Everyone in that city had despised the family. The family
was so hurt that they all, including the Pastor began to hate God
and had become bitter. Sarah’s sister had gone into prostitution,
her brother into drugs, and she, into a mess.
“Remember this” said Augustine. “When people choose to
withdraw far from a fire, the fire continues to give warmth, but
they grow cold. When people choose to withdraw far from light,
the light continues to be bright in itself but they are in darkness.
This is also the case when people withdraw from God.”
After the meal, Jaipaul had volunteered to go and meet Sarah’s
father. Sarah said that her father doesn’t see anybody and that he’s
always drunk. In obedience to his conviction, Jaipaul went to
Sarah’s house and her father opened the door with a base ball bat
and asked “who the heck are you” Jaipaul replied, “I’ve come to
tell you that Jesus loves you” Jaipaul almost got his head knocked
off. When Jaipaul had seen this man, he recognised him and then
paused and asked him this “Are you Pastor Bill, who twenty years
ago had come to India?” Sarah’s father, Bill was surprised. Jaipaul
further asked “Do you remember a man by the name of Raj in
India that you had led to Christ?” Bill thought for a moment and
said “Yes, I remember, he accepted Christ and then became a
Pastor” Jaipaul replied, “Sir, He’s my father, and I’m a Christian
Jaipaul then led Bill to repentance and Bill, today, is Pastor Bill.
A restored, Re-CALLED Servant of Christ. Who is Bill, that Christ
is mindful of him?
Pastor Bill must have known deep down in his heart as his thoughts
wondered that Christ would one day restore him. As Victor Hugo
said “There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of
the body, the soul is on its knees.”
Perhaps you’re a chosen vessel of the Lord and the enemy has
stolen your testimony. Yes, I’m talking to you. Christ SHALL
restore you. Only repent and come clean with the good Lord. I
know your throbbing heart that is wounded, is craving after the
Creator of that heart with a vacuum waiting to be filled with His
love. As Blaise Pascal said “There is a God-shaped vacuum in
He’s mindful of you and His Call and gifts to you are
The Called Witness
In 1901, William Seymour, a preacher hungry for the things of the
Spirit, wanted to learn about the new Pentecostal outpourings that
were taking place at Charles Parham’s Bible school. Being black,
Seymour was not allowed inside the building. So he sat on the
steps outside and listened through the window. And God touched
him. Five years later, William Seymour was the catalyst God used
to spark the Azusa Street revival. William Seymour: uninvited by
man but welcomed by God! Who was William Seymour, that God
was mindful of him?
What about you? No matter who you are, the King welcomes you.
No matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done, the King says,
“Come to Me.” Don’t let the false rules or misguided perceptions
of men keep you from your “throne-zone” experience with the
King. Practice the protocols of humility and worship. You will
discover that the door to the King’s throne room is always open!
When the Lord first touched me, so called leaders of the so called
mainline ministries tore me apart not knowing that Christ has set
me apart. Today, they all look in awe of what Christ has done in
my life. He has taken a dirty, rotten no good sinner and turned
him into an instrument to bring to Him those who have lost their
way and to bring back the lost sheep that have been wounded by
these mainline ministries. I was undignified for the Lord that once
He had touched me, I would go from street to street and town to
town and pull the drug addicts and gangsters and take them to
Church. As I did that, people thought that I was one of them. In
time, God vindicated! The greater the forgiveness, the greater the
love for the Lord!
MoreLove was started four years ago to reach just one person. For
weeks I had fasted and prayed for a precious young girl who was
in the land of Kuwait. Due to the circumstances being sensitive,
I thought that it would be better to write and start a website dealing
with youth issues with the hope that this girl would be helped.
Within a year, MoreLove had become a glocal (global and local)
portal, calling the youth to live pure lives. News channel in
over thirty six countries had interviewed us as to what drives us
to do what we do. I’ll tell you what drives us; it’s the mindfulness
of God for that ONE PERSON that drives us. We have reached
over a million people since then. Today, MoreLove is also a
respected name by Government officials in the dimension of Social
Tobit 3:3 “And now, O Lord, may You be mindful of me…” (c.f.
In the many things that I’m involved in ministry, it demands
emotional and physical elongation. The body becomes fatigue with
the travel and the ministry work, sometimes, eighteen hours a day,
writing for publications and authoring books, over looking our
Radio broadcasts, counselling several mentally ill people plus
others. In order to do most of the above, it takes hours of prayers
and study in almost every faculty. When all seems complex,
remember what Amethyst Snow-Rivers said “When we can’t piece
together the puzzle of our own lives, remember the best view
of a puzzle is from above. Let Him help put you together. ”
There are times when this question arise, “Lord, why can’t you
call someone else to do these things?” At the end of it, we see the
terminally ill healed, families restored, the mentally ill recovered.
At this I’m reminded what David Nicholas said “God’s promises
are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine. ”
Because of my commitment to the Lord, I have heard the Lord’s
voice and attended to people at infinite distances, just at the nick
of time and have prevented a suicide, homicide, even abortions.
Do you know why I’m committed to the Lord? It’s because He
first committed His life to me.
I’m not sure why God has called me to serve Him. What good did
my forefathers do, that made God to choose me to serve Him? A
few of my friends have been killed in violence, a few in jail, a few
underground. Inspite of my atrocities, God chose me. I don’t know
why and I’m not going to try and tell you why God is mindful of
you. Go figure out. All I know is that He is mindful of YOU!
