A DIVINE ASSIGNMENT
Whenever God gives you a divine assignment, you must have the faith and commitment to carry it out. It is a blessing to be used by God. One cannot be fearful or reluctant but must have the faith to trust God. The assignment that God gives must be carried out precisely in the manner in which God has instructed. There can be no detours when you seek to follow His instructions. No matter how difficult the assignment, when you put your trust in God, He will give you the power to complete the assignment. Our scripture lesson in II Samuels 7:27, speaks of a divine assignment:
“O LORD of Heaven’s Armies, God of Israel, I have been bold enough to pray this prayer to you because you have revealed all this to your servant, saying, ‘I will build a house for you–a dynasty of kings!’”
n this passage, God has given David an assignment. Israel is God’s chosen people and David is acknowledging that He has been instructed by the Lord to build a house. God has promised a blessing to His servant and David is committed to carry the assignment to completion. God’s love for the people of Israel has caused him to honor them by using His servant, David, to construct the temple. When you get a chance read chapter seven. Prayerfully, when God gives you an assignment, you will carry it out until completion.
