While in a Christian Leadership School as a corp member battling the call of God to settle and do ministry in the land of Eruwa, the Lord said to me, “Son, I will be the one to do it in Eruwa and not you”.
In the place of God’s calling upon your life, one of the greatest reassurances that we have is that when God has commissioned it, he will surely fulfil it. He will never abandon you to yourself.
Jesus made us know that the Father is working: “My Father has worked [even] until now, [He has never ceased working; He is still working] and I, too, must be at [divine] work.”
John 5:17 AMPC
You must simply keep doing what the Father has revealed. The secret to success in life and ministry is simple- See what the Father is doing and make sure you do likewise. Do not do what the Hand of the Lord has not approved. You will struggle.
You cannot simply take on an assignment because your friend is doing the same. You will end up in frustration. You do not pick up a task because that is what is reigning. You will be disappointed.
When David built a cart to carry the ark rather the pattern prescribed of God, they paid for it with the life of Uzzah. The Philistines did it and there was no consequence. The question is- “Are you the Philistines?”
Walk on confidently as long as that is the path that the Lord has chosen. Vogue must not take you out of the place of vision.
These words of Jesus are instructive:
I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord– but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders].
Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.
John 5:30 AMPC
Motivation teaches you to find your Purpose but Discipleship teaches you to find God’s purpose and plan. Most times, His purpose will make you say bye to your plans.
Deal with the desire to do what pleases you rather the will of God.
