God's Timetable - Part Two

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. –Romans 12:11 NIV

Here are the remaining building blocks to consider when fulfilling the plan that God has called you to achieve. Progress, Provision, & Power: God will give you opportunities to practice in a smaller field similar to what you aspire to achieve in a larger arena in the future. These minor yet very important opportunities have a way of preparing and perfecting you for the major things to come. Each time that you do well, God is confident that you’re prepared to handle larger tasks. You can trust God to supply the necessities you need each step of the way to fulfill the calling He gives you. He also blesses you with the power of His Holy Spirit—who helps you to grow and mature in the fruits of the Spirit. Only then can you effectively use the gifts and talents God entrusts to your care. Regardless of the building stage that you are in, remain assured that what God has called you to do, He will help you to accomplish. As you passionately pursue the mission God assigns you—individually and collectively—you can be confident that God is working things out behind the scenes for His greater purpose. He does not call His children to lose; He calls them to win for His glory!

prayer focuses

Praise God for His help, guidance, power, and provision to accomplish all the missions that He has for you today.

Ask the Holy Spirit to give you discernment to know when to take on a new responsibility that’ll prepare you for greater things ahead.
