Stay On Assignment
by Diana Scothorn
I have had many opportunities to “throw in the towel” and allow the things that have happened to me, define me! I had to decide in advance not to allow what someone did to me block what God wants to do through me. This is what Satan wants to do: Block the blessing!
If we focus on being a blessing, we will stay on assignment! God has a definite assignment for our life! Unfortunately, so does the devil! When something is definite, it’s clearly defined or determined! It is not vague! God’s Plan for our life is FIXED; PRECISE, and EXACT!
God knows when we’re to…
…move and when we’re to stay. He knows when to speak and when to be silent. He knows every detail of every moment of our life, and He wants us to be a vessel for the Blessing to flow through!
While our eyes are on others, God’s eyes are on us, and God says in His word He has a determined end. He knows our beginning, and He knows our end, and if we follow His assignment to be a blessing, it will be good!
In the Bible, Joseph’s dream revealed the assignment for his life. His brothers were jealous and did evil to him, and they even meant harm to Joseph by selling him into slavery.
It’s encouraging to know; God is not moved by circumstances that happen to us! Our assignment is determined. Although evil was plotted against Joseph, God placed him in a position where he was able to save their entire nation.
In Genesis 50:20, Joseph said to his brothers, “You meant evil against me, but God used it for good.” Anyone in any condition can be a blessing. God will not allow one thing in our life to go to waste. He will take the fragments of pain and hurt to encourage and bless others at a time they need it in their life!
All things work together for good if we love and trust God with His plan for our life and stay on assignment! It’s hard to be a blessing when we’re only concerned about what others have done to us. This is the entirety of satan’s plot; to cause pain to block the blessing! BE AWARE: the devil wants to get us off our assignment by causing us to get our eyes off Jesus and on ourselves.
God has our assignment planned on His timeline. Every detail of our fitness goals, our career, our spouse, our children, and our finances has a pre-determined end. Our Assignment is to be a blessing and make a difference and it’s excellent to know, where the blessing flows, Satan cannot go! When you’re thinking of ways to bless others, God already has a plan in motion, how He is going to bless you.
John 17:4 ( The Message Translation) says, “I will glorified you on earth by completing down to the last detail what you assigned me to do.” Our assignment is to stay on assignment! If you want to lose 30 lbs, stay on assignment until it’s completed! If you want to be out of debt, stay on assignment until it’s completed! If you’re believing God for family salvation, stay on assignment until it’s completed!!!
If we allow ourselves to be a vessel for the Blessing to flow and stay on assignment, God will make sure we are blessed wherever we Go, and for His blessings to continually flow!
