My beloved sisters in Christ:
I pray my mail meets you well, focused and expectant of God’s continued presence in your life. I have pondered on this question over the last month, “What really is my race”? What is my specific assignment on this earth? The bible says that every man has a distinct call of God upon his life. Jesus said in the book of John…” For you have not chosen me but I have chosen you…”.This means that God has chosen you as a vessel for His own purpose. My question to you however is this, ” Do you know God’s purpose for your life”?
I want to challenge you to go before your God and let Him confirm this to you. It can be dangerous to aspire to be like or covet another man’s gift just because you would like people to recognise and reward your capabilities. You may not have the measure of grace that is required to function in that capacity. The bible says that God will not give to you more than you can bear! This tells me that He knows what is right and perfect for you and therefore you must seek to discover it. Men may tell you of YOU but get a direct confirmation from God so that when you are challenged, you can go back to God and say, Lord…you chose me for this assignment, therefore, I trust you to equip me for it!
God has deposited so much in you that you are yet to discover. His ways are perfect so you can be assured that you will be victorious and successful in the work that He commits into your hands. You were created to give Him glory, therefore, it must always be His agenda and not yours!
So let God help you define your race today. Jesus and Paul boldly declared and triumphantly finished their race . May God’s vision and purpose for your life be made plain and known to you in Jesus mighty name.. amen. I love you dearly and I am praying for you!
