God gave Jonah an assignment.
Jonah 1:1-3. In this passage, the word of the Lord comes to Jonah. It was not a feeling or an emotion, but the word of the Lord.
When the word of the Lord came to Jonah, God knew where Jonah was, what shape his spirit was in, and He knew what Jonah was going to do with the word He gave. God was not surprised when Jonah refused and ran. God knew how Jonah was going to react, but still, God called him.
If a cold-hearted man running from God can hear a clear assignment from Him, why can’t those who are hungry for God? Jonah 3:1-3.
We need a fresh assignment from Heaven. When God gives you an assignment, Heaven will back it. It’s like a policeman pulling up to deal with some trouble. It’s not just him, he has the whole police department backing him. When you hear an assignment from God, it’s not just you. It’s the Creator of the Universe that goes with you!
Worship is one of your assignments. It’s not an option.
2 Samuel 6:21-22. David had an appointment from the Lord and part of that was worship. You don’t have a choice. If you are going where God is taking you, you have to worship Him. Worship is a win-win situation. When you worship, you are giving to God, and as you do, He begins to break chains and speak life into you. Miracles happen when we worship God!
God is working it all out.
Genesis 35:1. God told Jacob to go to Bethel. There was a new beginning waiting for Jacob. There is an assignment that God will give you that will change your life. Genesis 46:2-3. Exodus 3:9-14. When God gives you an assignment, miracles, power, and peace will go with you. The blood will go before you, making a way for you. Jesus will open doors that wouldn’t normally open. When you follow the assignment, God is already working on the other end, preparing you to pour in oil and wine into someone’s wounds and lay hands on the sick! When you’ve completed your assignment, God will release you and open your next assignment.
There are some doors already open to you. You need to tell your timidness that it will not stop your assignment. If the devil tries to bring up your past, you don’t have to worry about it because it’s under the blood. I don’t know about you, but I want my assignment from God. I want my living to make a difference. God has some assignments in His folder and He’s wanting to hand them out!
God’s looking for someone that’s not so caught up in themselves that they can’t hear an assignment for someone.
He’s looking for someone that will sacrifice and deny themself for others. You may not be called to the Middle East somewhere. It might be your prayer closet. God will send you into a certain person’s life to take authority and tell the devil to let someone go. The first time Moses told Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go, Pharaoh didn’t. But Moses was on an assignment. You may know a Pharoah in your assignment’s life. Pray and fast and take authority in Jesus’ name. Tell that Pharaoh to let them go, not only to be out of bondage but also to experience revival and know the Lord their Savior!
The completion of your assignment will be honored.
1 Kings 17:13-16. Even when Elijah had left the woman, the Lord was still honoring the completion of the assignment. 2 Kings 4:7. This woman was in debt and they were going to take her sons. The oil represents your anointing. Your anointing will be your way out. The anointing you’ve poured out will deliver your children and help set your lost loved ones free!
2 Kings 20:4-6. Acts 9:10-12. I want to be sent on an assignment that will change someone’s life. There are people in your family, in your community, that one knock on their door at the right time with an assignment from the Lord can totally turn their life around. What if you are a certain person’s last assignment? What if you are their last opportunity to experience the love of God?
How are assignments sent?
God can give you an assignment in a dream. God’s clear voice can ring in your heart. That clear voice overrides all other thoughts. Sometimes God just opens a door and you walk through. Pretty soon you will realize that it’s not chance, it’s an assignment from God.
What does God have for you to do? God is looking for someone who will obey Him and let Him move through their life to touch a lost soul. There are people who need to be healed and people who need the love of God shown to them. What is your assignment?
