Purpose in Life Series “Understanding Assignment”
Your current Mentor is Failing You!
There are many people today who are not doing what they were created to do by Father Yahweh (God). Therefore, the world is in chaos, the people of the earth are suffering, the #Kingdom of God is not manifesting, and the greatest travesty is that the people of Yahweh, who were sent to the earth as His ambassadors, are in disobedience to His will.
Nevertheless, the Father has assigned the Body of Christ and the people of God ascension gift ministers (mentors) according to Ephesians 4:7-14 so that they could be perfected (matured) through impartation, empowerment, activation, and release for the work of His ministry (service) in the earth.
Therefore, what is the problem?
The church and religion has taken the place of #discipleship (preparing people to follow Christ in fulfilling their #assignment), so there is very little true mentorship taking place within the Body of Christ. As a result there are too many people sitting in church when they should be working for the #kingdom. And we have too many people wanting titles and positions that have not been properly postured for either that are not getting the work of their assignment done!
As an Ambassador of the #Kingdom, I want to speak to mentors (teacher) and mentees (student) alike and encourage them both to begin moving in obedience toward one another in fulfillment of their God-given #assignments.
Further, I want to encourage every mentor to begin developing the precious gifts Father has called you to with the passion and commitment their purpose requires, deserves and needs! To every mentee I admonish you to position yourself so that your mentor finds you faithful and can commission you in due-season as God determines.
- Leaders mentor people based on their assignments and not their gifting.
Leaders mentor people based on their #assignment not their gifting. For gifting development is the job of the Holy Spirit. Character development and accountability is the #assignment of a mentor. Mentors are not to be the Holy Spirit for you. You know when you have the right mentor because they remind you of where you’re going (#assignment) not where you’ve been!
Wisdom Key: Mentors you must base your #assignment to people on their assignment to God, then to you. Otherwise, you might miss why you were assigned to one another. We are #assigned to people based on where they’re going in God and therefore what’s needed is wisdom on how to best mentor them.
- Recognize your #assignment was given to you by God and not man!
Your #assignment was given to you by God and not man! Yet, your man of God (mentor) keeps you headed toward what God has given you to do. Too many people don’t know their #assignment so they are following the wrong people and are in the wrong places! When you know your #assignment you won’t stay in places where you’re tolerated, but seek to get to the place where you’re activated! Once you know you’re #assignment you’ll let nothing and no one keep you from moving forward.
Wisdom Key: Your #assignment becomes your focus & your focus become your passion and your passion help you life each day with purpose.
- What you are passionate about you pursue.
What you’re passionate about you pursue! Your #assignment becomes your pursuit when your passion is no longer drained pursuing the need in your life! You’re #assignment only differs from your passion when they’re not aligned! When your #assignment and your passion are aligned you begin to do what you were created to do.
When you’re doing what you were created to do (#assignment) your provision manifests. Until then you have wants not needs! Pursuing wants takes you away from pursuing your #assignment. A want is the result of unfulfilled purpose.
Christ promised to meet our needs as we pursued the #kingdom (Matthew 6). Therefore, your #assignment requires your needs be met, not your wants.
Wisdom Key: When a need manifests in your life it is intended to activate faith in your walk as you pursue your #assignment. When you’re pursuing your #assignment and a need manifests it’s intended to demonstrate the providence of God so He may be glorified.
For example, in amazement to His disciples Christ’s provision manifested as He moved in His #assignment: the coin (his paper) in the mouth of the fish (Matthew 17:27), the colt His ride to Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-3), and the upper room for the Passover (Mark 14:14-16), to name a few.
Consequently, you don’t have an unmet need as you move in your #assignment, you need #EmployedFaith to see the need already met! Therefore, you pray, believe and thank God for the manifestation.
- Obedience during your #assignment makes the difference between you accomplishing or failing to fulfill your purpose.
Too many of you are waiting to get it all together before moving out on your #assignment. Waiting only delays your healing, deliverance and breakthrough. Further, waiting is disobedience to Fathers commands and instructions. Disobedience causes delays and delays cause you to miss your seasons. A missed season is reminders that someone missed an #assignment. When you miss your #assignment someone doesn’t get the breakthrough intended to come through you.
Wisdom Key: Provision without an #assignment leads to wasteful spending because you don’t understand the true purpose or value of money! An #assignment without provision keeps you pursuing purpose because #EmployedFaith tells you what you need will be there when you have need of it. Therefore you don’t wait until you have the provision before you obey! You obey because you have #EmployedFaith in the God of your #assignment!
So if you’ve been waiting to move out realize You will be healed, delivered, and set free as you move in obedience toward your #assignment. Yashua told his disciples to come and follow him in his #assignment and as they did they received what was needed in the process of going!
Today my friend be encouraged and begin moving toward your #assignment so that the #GodProcess may take place in your life. I pray you be blessed! Stay connected to learn more about my new book… “The God Process” coming soon.
