The most important search you can make is for your identity. It will lead you to Me. It will lead you to your purpose and your destiny. Get into alignment for your assignment. Find out who you are to Me.


Assignment comes from identity. It comes out of who God says you are. So how do you figure this out? You need to have some pretty radical ongoing encounters with God for you to learn who God is to you and who you are to Him. 

Here at OpenDoor, we’re all about kicking religion and poverty in the teeth upon behalf of people in bondage and desperate circumstances. We are redemption and transformation fanatics and we believe we have a mandate to see what redemption looks like in all kinds of different areas. We are madly in love with Jesus, we are Jesus people. This is our identity. 

Because of that, our assignment is to feed desperate people at the OpenDoor Food Bank and our monthly homeless outreach. We free girls and boys from sexual slavery and set them up for an abundant life. Our assignment is the action we take, and believe me, we’re all about accomplishing great vision. 

Not long after he took office, the president had one of the most successful weeks in his short tenure and all of it was tarnished by a tweet that was out of his assignment. Nobody talked about the victories he had because they were busy blowing the controversial comment he made way out of proportion.

Know this: Stepping out of your assignment can knock you out of alignment or put you back a few steps in the process. Let’s not do that.

Being president is hard, but so is being you. You’ve got to overcome both the enemy and the in-a-me to stay in alignment. Remember who you are and whose you are. When you know you’re His child, you will act accordingly and impact the world around you for Jesus. That’s your assignment.
