TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I never tire of talking with you or listening to your requests. I understand your problems and challenges, so bring them to Me. Because I made you and have purposed you for My plan, I know how to set you free from the bondage of a wasted life.
FINDING YOUR GPS
Let’s talk about something I believe to be very important to the Kingdom and that is alignment. The dictionary defines alignment as “an arrangement; incorrect or appropriate relative positions.”
When it comes to the issues of alignment, you can have things in your life that are not bad, but they’re not appropriate for the assignment that God Almighty has given you. Aligning with God’s promises, His Word, and His plan for your good is the key to living out your identity, purpose, and destiny.
Have you considered all the promises that come with alignment? And why we need alignment for our Kingdom assignment? Those promises are all about fruit and having a harvest to present to the Lord Jesus. Our lives should draw people to salvation, but that’s hard to do if we’re not living in our identity and purpose.
Here are a few questions you need to ask yourself: Are you “dressed” for this assignment? Is your life lining up with it? Do your friends help or hinder your alignment for assignment?
If you’re called to be a musician, you should be surrounded by musicians and involved in musical things. You should be learning how to write songs, book gigs, and understand how the recording industry works. If you are you just messing around with a bunch of friends who aren’t serious or don’t have anything to do with music whatsoever, you’re missing the boat.
You see, it’s not that your friends are bad. They’re not appropriate for your assignment. You have to consider what alignment is all about. It’s about lining up your words, your actions, your relationships, finances, and time – your entire life – with your assignment. Your assignment is the identity and purpose God put you on this earth for.
Don’t know your assignment? Use your handy GPS – God’s Plan Strategy. This is how it works. God says in Jeremiah 29:11 that “He has a plan and purpose for your life, and it is good.” Then, He tells you how to get it.
“Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity…” – Jeremiah 29:12-14
Call, seek, follow. The Lord promises to bring you out of the captivity of a life without purpose and put you into alignment for your assignment.
