I don’t know why the Holy spirit is revealing this message in bits, like it’s the same thing but in different ways. All glory to God.
And I strongly believe that this season God is calling us to bloom where we are. To look deep and beyond the normal, to look deep in the little things, that’s where we will find our purpose and the beauty of God.
Because the beauty of God is found every where and in every season of our lives. We have something to rejoice about, to be grateful for and to give irregardless of the season we are in.
God is calling on us to take position wherever he has planted us, to show up and to stop shrinking ourself so that we can fit in, but to stand out and become that which he has intended us to be in the season that we are in.
In that space you are in, in that position you are in or should I say where God has planted you right now, you can still serve God by being of service to those that God has placed around you. Not forgetting that there’s always something to give.
What do I mean? I simply mean you can bloom right now and right here. You can bloom in your obedience, you can bloom in becoming that which God has ordained you to become in this very season. And that will only happen when you choose to stand out and walk in obedience and utilize every opportunity you have in this season.
I know sometimes we tell ourselves, if only I had more I could do more. But one thing you should always keep in mind is that God has given you just enough, for you and also for those he has placed around you.
In the book of Esther 4:14-16.
Mordecai remind Esther if she doesn’t take advantage of the opportunity she has to save the Jews from being destroyed, she and her father’s family will come to an end / die.
This also remind me of Mathew 25:14-30
the parable of the three servants. Each used well and multiplied whatever was entrusted to them by their master except one who gave an excuse as to why he didn’t multiply whatever was entrusted to him.
And verse 29 continue to say
For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
Matthew 25:29-30 NIV
Most of the time we are like the servant who gave an excuse. We complain and give excuses as to why we can’t do A B or C.
And we wonder why we don’t grow. This is because God tests as with the little we have first before blessing us with more.
Can we be obedient? Can we show up? Can we share the little we have? can we take position when we are required to? Can we share the little knowledge we have? Can we steward well that which is entrusted to us?
If you can’t be faithful in the little you won’t be faithful in plenty. And even the little you have will be taken away.
So today is my prayer that you will not shrink to fit in, but you will choose to stand out and serve those that God has placed around you, that you will be a good steward of his blessings upon your life and that you will not be afraid to show up and take position when you are required to.
In Jesus Name
Amen, God bless you
