After salvation, the next most important question you should ask is “Lord, what will you have me to do?” That is your assignment.
Take note of this, “You don't know what you need until you know your assignment.” It is the discovery of God's purpose for your life that helps you know the kind of spouse, job, and friends you need. It also helps you to know where you will be located and the church you should attend. Your assignment shows you what you need in life!
Failure to align all areas of your life with God's purpose will result in a life of pain. If you have been married, have friends, have got a career, etc. before discovering your assignment, you need to align those things with God's purpose for you, not vice versa or else you'll be kicking against pricks. If you keep doing your own things contrary to or in defiance of God's will for you, you'll remove yourself from God's covering and control, and guess what? The devil will take over! HAVE NO OPINION OF YOUR MINISTRY until God connects you to it.
Paul didn't want to be an apostle; he only wanted to do God's will! Ministry is finding out what God wants you to do and doing it faithfully. If God asked you to do it, it implies three things:
* He has created you to do it;
* He has equipped you to do it;
* You can do it.
Many people don't serve God acceptably because they don't see what they are doing as a direct assignment from God. Ministry is a must-do work.
PRAYER: Lord, show me what I must do and I will give my all to it in Jesus’ name. Amen!
