- Prayer reflects the true state of your heart
- God wants to add anointing to your anointing
- God tells you what is next on His agenda for you.
Sometimes, you need to understand that what you ask for in the place of prayer reflects the true state of your heart. Why do you want more power? The principle I will be sharing with you today does not only apply to spiritual things, it applies to every aspect of your walk with God. If you want increased power (anointing, financial, social, material, etc.), ask for an increased assignment.
When God wants to add anointing to your anointing, He will add another assignment to your assignment. Do you know that when pastors enter into the office of an evangelist, God begins to tell them to do the work of an evangelist, and when they begin to do the work of an evangelist, the anointing of an evangelist comes upon them? A weightlifter doesn’t wait until he gets the muscles before he starts carrying the weight; he starts carrying the weight and then the muscles come. Start taking the assignment and the power will come. If God wants to make you a millionaire, He will give you an assignment that only a millionaire can handle.
When people don’t understand this principle, they make an idol out of money and they chase cash though cash is the lowest form of wealth. When God gave us the assignment to build our church headquarters, it was not part of our program that year, but one critical lesson I learnt from that experience is that; God doesn’t tell you what is next on your agenda, He tells you what is next on His agenda for you.
I will leave you with this thought today; Power doesn’t come before the assignment, Assignments come before the power. Pick up more divine assignments and you will see that the power for that assignment will find its way into your life.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I make a decision today to embrace more assignments and to be faithful in handing them, in Jesus’ name.
