Good afternoon! Happy Tuesday. Sorry I have been missing in action. I’m alive and well. Preparing for Greater! I decree and declare that no weapon formed against you will prosper and that you will continue to receive the blessings of God. May they continue to overflow in and through your life. Make up in your mind that you will no longer settle for less.
TFTD: Remember your assignment
Esther 4:14 (NKJV)
14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
Have you ever wondered why you are where you are at in this season? Have you ever said, “Lord, why am I in this relationship, why am I at this job, why do I live in this neighborhood, why do I attend this church, why am I still in this ministry?” I know I have. There have been times when I’ve questioned my position in life and then God reminds me of my assignment. As believers, we don’t just have jobs, lead ministries or serve in them, live in neighborhoods that we do or join organizations for the fun of it. We have a divine assignment to carry out and when we get discouraged we need to remember that. Remember your assignment!
God has a way of appointing us for “such a time as this.” Somethings would have never changed on your job if you weren’t working there. Some policies would have never been in place if you weren’t there. That ministry would not thrive if you weren’t in it sharing your gift. That organization would not have the valuable resources it now has, if it weren’t for your knowledge. Maybe you are there to promote change. Maybe God strategically placed you where you are in order to minister to the heart of a person or people. I don’t know the reason, but I am confident that you were appointed for such a time as this. If you weren’t there, things wouldn’t flow right. I know sometimes you feel like giving up, but remember your assignment.
If you don’t know your assignment, spend time in prayer and ask God to reveal to you why you are there. What are you supposed to do. If you focus on why God has called you to that place then you will be able to stand the test of times. When folks get on your last nerve or try to attack your character, you will remember that God sent you to fix what’s broken. God may have called you to reveal what’s broken and then He will allow you to move on to the next assignment. Whatever you assignment may be, I encourage you to stay strong and stay the course. When your assignment is complete, God will open a new door for you. Don’t take up permanent residence in a place that was designed to be temporary. Don’t get too comfortable because you want to be ready when God tells you to move!
God called you for such a time as this and I pray that you will stay focused, remain humble, remember you are needed (even if people don’t seem to appreciate you), and to trust in the process.
Have a blessed day!
