Today I will continue to consider the keys to discovering and receiving your ministry.
1. You must have a Keen Sense of Divine Timing for Your Life. Luke 13:6-9. You must understand that God operates by time with man. There is a time and season apportioned to your life different from somebody else. It does not matter where you go to Church, the maximum length of time God expects anybody to operate as a baby is three years and three year’s duration is for churches that are more traditional than revelational. If you are a member of a Church where there is a strong revelation of the word of God, God expects you to begin to produce fruits as a saint after the first year. In that passage, the fig tree is a picture of a Christian. Christians who don’t produce fruits after the third year usually go around in circles instead of progressing and dealing with problems that unbelievers don’t even struggle with. Growth is one thing that will deliver people from such problems. If you don’t grow, you will groan. You must grow spiritually, physically, mentally and all round.
2. You must have Correct Church Membership: Correct Church membership helps us to align our gifting, callings and anointing in the light of God’s purpose for us. When God wants to place a Christian who is a finger in the body of Christ, he will not place him in a Church that is a chest. There is no job for fingers in the chest. God is likely to place such a Christian in a Church that is a hand. The assignment of the hand (the church) helps the fingers (each member) to know their own assignment. That is one of the major purposes of right Church membership.
There is a connection between correct Church membership and every other thing in your life. You are a plant (Psalm 92:13) and you need to be in place to grow. When you are in place as far as Church is concerned, every other thing will be in place. When you are not in place, you are in space and nothing in space grows as far as agriculture is concerned. Not every soil contains the required nutrients for every plant. Therefore, it is the responsibility of each person to discover the right soil (Church) for him. Church membership should not be by tradition but by revelation.
Lord, show me where I must be to get every other thing right and help me to develop a keen sense of sensitivity and perception to divine timing in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Prayer: Lord, show me where I must be to get every other thing right and help me to develop a keen sense of sensitivity and perception to divine timing in Jesus’ name. Amen.
