- God funds His assignment in your life.
- God doesn’t give handouts, He gives assignments.
- Most people pray for power, that is the wrong prayer, instead, pray for assignment.
There is a critical understanding that you must have today; God funds His assignment in your life. Yesterday we mentioned the three reasons why God gives wealth and we established that the first and major purpose is to fund your divine assignment. One truth you must never forget is; ‘God doesn’t give handouts, He gives assignments.’
In our text above, the phrase “every good work” refers to your God-given assignment. Remember we treated the order of priority for the reasons God sends wealth yesterday – one of the reasons people get into trouble with God is because they misappropriate the wealth that God has given them. By doing so, they get into trouble with God – when you take what God has sent for an assignment and use it for something else, it shuts down the supernatural flow in your direction. When God wants to increase you, He increases your assignment. Most people pray for power, that is the wrong prayer, instead, pray for assignment.
You need to know what is abounding (see the text above) because your life consists of three major areas as mentioned previously; assignment, obligation and enjoyment. If those three are not serviced in your life, you are not a fulfilled human being. The highest and the deepest is your assignment. If you want God to commit more wealth in your direction, embrace more divine assignments. The more God finds you trustworthy in handling the assignments He has placed in your custody, the more resources He will trust you with. Are you committed to winning the trust of God concerning the assignments in your hands?
PRAYER: Dear Father, I make a solemn decision today to take divine assignments more seriously.
