I thank God for bringing us all into this new month of September, May it one we would live to remember for good in Jesus Name.
I trust everyone is doing well. I encourage you not to be anxious, all things are working together in your favour. Relax! and let Jesus take the wheel.
Recently, I have found myself in the 'thought- place' of purpose, life assignment and occupying my place in the Kingdom. And I would love to share some of those thoughts with you, I hope it blesses you.
As a child of God we must know that God created us for a purpose only Him can reveal. However, on the journey to that purpose we have several assignments some of which include: being a helper, teacher, apostle, encourager, leader, and so on. Each individual's assignment is unique and none is inferior to another. Unfortunately, today we are often carried away by pomp and pageantry of others' assignments and look down on ours.
Apostle Paul illustrates this using the various body parts. Let's take a look at 1 Corinthians 12:14-20
"Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything? But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! Yes, there are many parts, but only one body."
God evaluates us based on our given assignments - where he has placed us not based on what we think is acceptable or in popular demand. If God has called you to be a 'finger' in the body of Christ, stay there. The body of Christ is waiting for your manifestation as that ordained finger. No one would be a finger better than you because that is what you were made for.
That is your only place of flourishing and fulfilment, no matter how 'insignificant ' it may seem.
We must learn to stay planted where He has called us so we can bear fruits - according to kingdom standard not the people standard.
We must learn to let the word of God guide our daily living not what is trending. Don't forget that what is seen is temporal and the unseen is eternal.
Mind you, what is trending today would be obsolete soon enough. What then would be your fate? But being in your place of assignment would never go out of date because the the giver (God) is current for all seasons.
Remember, you are here on a purpose and for a purpose.
