"But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ." – Ephesians 4:7
If you are not in your place, you will be out of place. God wants you to identify and discover your place of assignment. Some people are into many things at a time without having an edge in anything. You can’t do everything everywhere because you are not created to do all. A lot of people are confused as to what to do or where to be in life they therefore hop from one career path to another. God has not created us to be jack of all trades. It takes only the best to lead the rest. Our God is a God of plan and purpose. During creation, He created man after He had created everything else because He knows the place of our assignment. Discover your own place of assignment and face it.
God has given us grace for various purposes, so please don’t run another man’s race. Know your allocation so as to receive timely allocation. Your prosperity isn’t in your location but in your allocation. Maximize what God has allocated to you (Ephesians 4:11).
How Can You Discover Your Place?
1. Look inside yourself. What are your core values? What are you good at? What beliefs do you have about yourself? God has created us in a way that if we know ourselves we would live a life of abundance.
2. Understand your true range of skills, talents and experience.
3. Know what impact you want to make in life. If your input is zero, your impact will be nil.
4. Seek God’s face for approval (Psalms 37:33).
Enough of being on the same spot over the years…discover your place of assignment!
