Understand The Assignment


‘Now the lord said to Samuel, “You have mourned long enough for Saul. I have rejected him as king of Israel, so fill your flask with olive oil and go to Bethlehem. Find a man named Jesse who lives there, for I have selected one of his sons to be my king.” 1 Samuel 16:1 NLT

Our God is a God of specificity! His instructions are specific to purposes. His visions are specific to ends. His vessels are specific to function. 

He has a very clear reason for making you the way you are. He also has defined motivations for every assignment he asks you to do.

Your duty is to understand the mission before you act! You must get the vision of what God is asking you to undertake. The understanding you get will help you to make the best use of whatever God gives to you for your assignment.  It will keep you going when you feel the most tired bodily. It will help you remain confident even when others scorn the path you are travelling.

The chief source of the instructions understand them the most! God is the chief giver and he knows the instructions best. So, whenever you are not clear on what the mission of your divine assignment, stop to ask the Lord.

Let his communication with Jeremiah in Jeremiah 33:3 reassure you that he will definitely reveal to you what will guide and help you, as you seek to obey him and fulfil the purpose that he has laid out for you.

God bless you richly!

Stay in purpose!
