Has God been speaking to you about taking on a new assignment? Have you been in prayer and consecration about it? Have you spoken to those in leadership at your local place of worship concerning it? If you believe that God has given you a new assignment, you are about to enter an area and a season that are very critical and you will need to pay very close attention in order to hear what God’s Spirit is speaking to you from this point forward.
When God ordains something, He will usually send a word of confirmation for two reasons:
1) to let us know that He has chosen and anointed us for this assignment, and 2) to let others know that He has chosen and anointed us for this assignment.
The idea of God choosing us seems exciting initially, and then the reality of the situation settles in. Once God promotes us, it will seem as though every gate in hell will be opened and every demonic opposition will be unleashed to hinder the developmental and transitioning process. This will usually occur in the form of ridicule and opposition from those who are the closest to us. Then, it will also take place in the world around us. Take heart and fear not because
“…no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord…” (Is. 54:17).
Regardless of what may be placed in front of us to cause us to stumble, it will be rendered ineffective and powerless. Why? The Bible teaches us that, “…If God be for us, who can be against us…” (Rom. 8:31)? We have been called forth “…for such a time as this…” (Es. 4:14). As long as we keep God’s agenda at the forefront, things will fall into place in the exact manner in which God said they would. Then we, as well as our naysayers, will see that “… a man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men…” (Prov. 18:6). As a result, because we know that we are called and ordained of God to move into this new phase, we “…shall be strong, and do exploits…” (Dan. 11:32)…#thinkonthesethings
