(Numbers 13:30-33, Numbers 32:12, Judges 4:6-9, Judges 6:11-40, Matthew 25:13-30)

Your existence is a divine project. Your being sent out is the outcome of divine plans, consideration, conclusions, and fulfillment. You were assigned to serve God and humanity where you are. There were many considered for this appointment but only one person could be selected, and that was you. See it as an appointment to ‘work’ into the next phase of your life. Consider your current career, position and location as a divine orchestration. Even though it seems they are not the best for you now. Use them as the platform for your assignment. And see this appointment as a divinely shaped opportunity.

Then why the challenges? They were parts of the factors considered for your selection. If this challenges were not involved, it is possible that the appointment may have been given to another person. The challenges are opportunities to manifest the gifts of God in you – yes you have been shaped, pruned, and graced for this purpose. You have been formed to overcome them. If they seem numerous or mighty, then know that this is according to the level of divine strength they see in you. To them, Christ is that mighty through you. Expect oppositions! Do not be caught unawares when they surface. Remember that you are a threat to them – a terror to their agenda. The grace of the Lord upon you surpasses their threats (Jer. 1:10).

(Mat. 10:16 KJV) Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Do not rush out for the spoils of war instead be faithful and diligent with the king’s business. Even though you must not set your mind on the reward, the Lord you serve is a Rewarder of those who diligently and faithfully serve Him. When the allocation for the tasks seems not sufficient; ask as you make do with what you currently have, keep asking but keep making use of what you currently have at your disposal – never stop to complain. When the allocations seems abundant, do not waste them. Use then prudently, gather the excess, they may be useful for another tasks; as deemed fit.

Mat 15:37 KJV And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.

So arise, explore, shine, and let all see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Remember: the clue for a continued victory is a faithful, diligent, selfless, and productive obedience to the one who has appointed you – our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Mat 28:18-20 KJV
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
