God will get involved with you only when you get into accuracy concerning the people you are to reach. Many times, certain side issues pull us out of the programme of God in this area. In today’s texts, Apostle Paul clearly defined the people he was sent to. The nationalistic zeal in Paul lured him to attempt ministering to the Jews a number of times, but since God did not send him to the Jews, he always met stiff spiritual opposition.
Regardless of what your gift or calling is, you are raised for a people. The people will wait for you and nobody will replace you in Jesus’ name.
Some of the people that you are raised for may not be able to pay you for what you will do for them. Not everybody is going to respond to you or your calling. Whatever your gift or calling in life is, ensure you let God lead you to the people He has sent you to. Paul was raised to reach the Gentiles while Peter was raised as an apostle to the Jews, and both of them succeeded.
Paul had a deep affection for his people, the Jews, but he was constantly unaccepted by them. Everybody wants to be accepted by their people. Even the Lord Jesus Christ wanted that, but He said, “A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house (Mar. 6:4).” Sometimes, that can happen.
Don’t allow emotion or zeal to take you out of the plan of God. It is my prayer that the Spirit of wisdom will come upon you to recognise the people that you are sent to. Avoid being led by carnal sentiments that move most believers out of accuracy in the programme of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray for sensitivity to recognise the people You have sent me to in Jesus’ name. Amen!
