Day 18: Knowing Your Assignment

Day 18: Knowing Your Assignment
“Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”
But the Lord said to me, Do not say, ’I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 1:6-8
If you look hard enough, you will find that there are clues to your assignment everywhere. Finding your assignment in the kingdom is critical. You are treasured. You are valued. If it was true for Jeremiah, it’s true for you. Before you were in your mother ’s womb, He knew you, called you to an assignment, had a plan and a purpose for your life. We all become pretty good at believing in other people’s call and other people’s assignments and other people’s potential, but we don’t see it in our self. We call it humility, when, in reality, it’s the spirit of intimidation and fear that causes us to feel unimportant. In God’s eyes, you are treasured and valued. He knew you before you were in your mother’s womb.
The first step in finding your assignment is understanding God can talk to you. We need to know that God is still speaking today, and He is still calling people to be a part of His kingdom purpose. He speaks through church services, through preachers; He will speak through circumstances, and through other people. He always speaks through His Word. You’ve got to learn to listen and hear God’s voice. That’s how He puts dreams in you! He will speak to you.
I get amused hearing people say, ’’I’m going to take a course on how to hear God’s voice.“ When I call my mother and hear her voice on the other line, I know it’s her. I don’t have to take a course on recognizing her voice. When you know God, you know His voice. It’s that simpleand it is important. You get to know Him by spending time with Him and listening. The more you listen, the easier it will be to recognize His voice. Jeremiah begins chapter one saying, “The word of the Lord came to me saying ... “The Word spoke to Jeremiah, and The Word is still speaking today. Listen for Him. He knows how to talk to you.
A true assignment from God will showcase your inferiority and your limitation. It will be bigger than you are and make you feel incapable of achieving it. Don’t focus on your weakness, God gets glory out of what happens in spite of your weaknesses. God said, “My power is made perfect in weakness” 2 Corinthians 12:9.
You’re not here by accident. You were created for purpose and for His glory. Start believing your assignment is so much less about your ability and so much more about your availability. It’s not your

responsibility ... it’s your response to His ability.
Don’t be afraid of your weaknesses but embrace them knowing that God will show up in His strength and bring you into your fullness.
