God has given you an assignment in life. There is something He wants you to focus laser like on and not be distracted by other “good things.”
Your assignment He has given you is not contingent on what you have in hand, your resources, your support staff or your ability.
I understand that some are naturally gifted in certain areas but when it comes to the things of God, He can supernaturally anoint you to accomplish what He needs done through you. And provide whatever you need!
Jesus when He came to earth had an assignment:
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”
Luke 4:18-19 NKJV
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
Acts 10:38 NKJV
Your assignment He has given you is a high calling from God! Don’t underestimate how important you are to fulfilling His Kingdom plan.
Don't get sidetracked with things that do not pertain to your Heavenly assignment. Even things that we would deem as good can be a distraction from our calling.
Jesus was focused on His assignment and never lost sight of where He was headed:
“Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God.”
Hebrews 12:2 MSG
Jesus endured the cross and the shame that He received along the way. He kept to His assignment never deviating, never distracted, going to the cross for our salvation.
Before He took his last breath, hanging from the cross, He said IT IS FINISHED.
Last week Billy Graham transitioned to his heavenly reward. When I think of people that have finished what God has given them to do in this life I think of Billy Graham. Here’s a quote from Billy Graham that contains truly godly wisdom for us:
”The legacy we leave is not just in our possessions, but in the quality of our lives. The greatest waste in all of our earth, which cannot be recycled or reclaimed, is our waste of the time that God has given us each day.”
I would strongly encourage you to stay laser focused on your assignment, and with God’s help, you will finish what He has called you to so and you too can say IT IS FINISHED.
