“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance THE RACE marked out for us” Heb. 12:1.
You are on a race. You have a particular race that God has set before you to run. It is your mission. It is an assignment….a calling from higher quarters. God has a mission for each and every one of us. You are not just living but there is a reason for your being alive. That reason is your mission, your race, your purpose, your assignment. Hence an end comes to meaningless living. Unfortunately, many still live a miserable life of constant failure and strife because their lives are out of focus to the purpose and plans of God.
Purpose does not mean all your life issues are settled but it means there would be peace.
How? You may ask but believe me, when you get into your mission, it gives you fulfilment, joy and strength beyond the challenges that you go through everyday. The challenges of single hood, divorce, barrenness, etc
When the disciples of Jesus found him at the well with the Samaritan woman, they wondered who gave him food to eat before they left him because on their return, he told them he had eaten, when asked what he ate, he said to them “….my food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work…” Jh 4:34.
Truly, Jesus had not eaten any physical food, which is a challenge on its own but fulfilling his mission, going about his assignment at that time was enough to satisfy or make him temporarily forget his hunger.
Fulfiling your assignment is a bridge to your happiness.
You are created to solve a problem. You are not a nobody. You are not a biological mistake. You are created for a purpose
You are an answer to something or someone, listen to this, no matter what anyone or any man, fellow women, your parents, your man, your children said to you, this is what God has to say…God is saying “….before I formed thee in the belly, I knew you and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations,” Jer 1:4, 5
You might not be able to grasp the whole purpose or assignment of God for your life yet; you might even know it but yet can not figure out how to go about it or how it can ever be a reality.
For now, you do not need to bother yourself – all that matters is for you to know you are on a mission, discover it, and leave God to fulfil his plans in your life, while you run the race.
On your mark, GET SET…
