“And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why has thou thus dealt with us? Behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? Luke 2:48-49.
It is important what you do with the time God has put in your hands. Today among our young people it is difficult to separate a believer from a non- believer. That ye be not slothful, but follower’s of them who through faith and patience inherit the promise; Hebrew 6:12. To obtain the promise of God you have to add patience to Faith. There is a place of Faith and patience in our work and after we’ve done all, we stand.
Matthew 25:14-30; God thinks like a business man, after he gave talents, he took back from the ones that were unproductive and gave it to the one who had ten not four; God wants your life to produce result, he expect to get the best from your life; and when your life shines it is for you to affect the life of others. And he said unto them, how is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that I must be about my father’s business; Luke 2:49, we must be about our Father’s business; what else are you suppose to do? And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also:for therefore am I sent; Luke 4:43. It is important to know why you are sent or why you are here, otherwise, your life will be wasted.
Success is not defined by temporary things, but what God has aligned or purpose for your life; find and walk in that purpose, otherwise, you are walking towards failure. There is a path that seemeth right for a man, but it leads to destruction; proverbs 14:12. Remember, if you are a chosen generation, peculiar person, a child of God, people around you should want to be like you, otherwise, you are “ demarketing” God. It is either you really serve him or not; Malachi 3:18. God does not want us to serve him by force, but out of choice. God is a spirit that is why he has us here, we must position ourselves for God to use us. Find out what God’s will is which can be found in His word—the Scriptures; not based on your own understanding.
The natural man is not very patient to follow God, we want instant result; you can make your own personal plans, but it is God that orders your steps, therefore, Submit to Him. God is looking for the man that has desire and heart to serve Him – because of David’s desire to build the temple, God blessed his generation after him. Plan to follow God no matter what happens; God is faithful, nobody follows God and is put to shame, focus on eternal things and not what you see around you which is for a short while. What is the driving force behind your life, What is motivating you.
The preaching of the gospel is foolishness to the unsaved; 1cor. 1:18; what men call wisdom, God calls foolishness. The only way to get result from the kingdom of God is to Submit to the Word of God. What brings the power you need is spiritual and not physical. Col.2:15, this is what Jesus did to satan, but if you continue to live in ignorance, satan will have you for lunch. Gain wisdom and understanding and Submit to it then your change will come. You must know who you are. You must walk in the power and glory that God has made available. Our thoughts must be aligned with God’s thoughts, our will must change.
Do you know who God has called you to be? If not, you are still far away from fulfilling Gods purpose for your life.
