“HERE”, “THERE” or “HERE AND THERE”: A LESSON ON ASSIGNMENTS AND FOCUS!
While sinking borehole on church site, I held on to my breath. Why? I knew that whether the drillers got water or not, we would have to pay. I prayed under my breath.
The survey pointed us to a location but waiting for the outburst of the first flow of water from the land came with some huge suspense. To get water, you had to be focused. They did not drill here and there. They stayed until they got a flow.
There is a dimension of focus needed in life’s assignment also. There are three things you must take note of.
First, there is “Here”. That is the place where you currently are.
Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan.”
I Kings 17:2-3 NKJV
Sometimes, “Here” is a mindset that you have built over time. It is a place of comfort and convenience for you. You are so used to it that it is hard to bid it farewell.
Second, there is “There”. That is the place where you are meant to be be. “There” is the place of supply. “There” is the place where God has instructed. It may be an unfamiliar place but do not be moved by news, sentiments or needs. Be moved by instructions.
“And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”
I Kings 17:4 NKJV
Third, there is “Here and There”. That is a dimension that you must reject will all that is within you. It is the posture of a distracted and confused person.
“While your servant was busy here and there, he was gone.” Then the king of Israel said to him, “So shall your judgment be; you yourself have decided it.”
I Kings 20:40 NKJV
People who are “here and there” always lose what God has committed to them- it could be a vision, their marriage, ministry or even a business. Distraction kills whatever it is able to latch unto. You must reject distraction.
In the name of Jesus, you will be where God wants you to be per time. You will move with the accuracy of the Spirit. Your life will be lived with precision. Every trace of “here and there” is removed in your journey. Amen.
