Good morning saints,
After salvation experience, one needs to know the appointment of God, the divine assignment of God, the calling of God in one’s life.
Saul on Damascus road was encountered by our Lord Jesus Christ.
Three days later, the Lord Jesus spoke to Ananias, Saul’s divine assignment.
Acts 9:15, “But the Lord said to him (Ananias), “Go, for he(Saul) is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel.
Acts 9:16, “For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.”
Knowing your divine assignment is so very important for your destiny, your race on Earth, your earthly influence and Heavenly reward.
Your fulfilment on Earth as a Christian is to do what God wants you do, to go where God wants you to go, to have what God wants you to have and ultimately to become what God wants you to become —in Christ Jesus
2 Timothy 4:7,”I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith
2 Timothy 4:8, “Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day — and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”
Knowing your divine assignment or call of God enables you to withstand or overcome trials and challenges of life. Saul knew from the Lord Jesus that he will suffer for the Lord Jesus Name.
Thus Saul, knowing his divine assignment, progressively experiencing God’s grace is always sufficient for him, also achieving a personal excellence and discipline in accomplishing God’s will in his life.
2 Corinthians 12:9, “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
Finally know that the enemy is always there
trying to derail your divine assignment. However, the Lord Jesus has written your life in His book.
Psalm 139:15, “My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
V16, “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.”
God said to Jeremiah in
Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
God has declared your end from the beginning.
Isaiah 46:10, “Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’
Saints as we continue to progress and walk in the Lord’s divine assignment, you will discover the Lord’s preciousness, His abundant grace, abilities and gifts, His faithfulness and provision and that Our Lord Jesus Christ will not leave nor forsake you right to the end of the age! God bless you always.
