Saturday,13th July, 2013 TIME-BOUND ASSIGNMENTS

Memorise: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Ecclesiastics 3:1)

Read: Esther 4:13-14

Before a decree to kill all male
children born to Israelites was
passed in Egypt, God had
ensured that two God-fearing
midwives had been planted in
their midst. They were at the
right place at the right time for
the right reasons. The Lord had
known what the devil was about
to do, so He had gone a step
ahead. Beloved, that place God
led you to is not by accident but
for a purpose. Another person
that was planted to avert the evil
plan of the enemy against God’s
people was Esther. Just before
the execution of the plot of the
enemy against the Israelites,
Esther rose to the occasion and it
was averted. In that negative
situation, God has moved a step
ahead of the enemy. Before your
enemies carry out their evil plot
against you, the Lord would have
executed His plan of deliverance
for you. In the name of Jesus,
you shall not be a victim in the
teeth of your enemies.
“For I know the thoughts that I
think toward you, saith the
LORD, thoughts of peace, and
not of evil, to give you an
expected end.”
Jeremiah 29:11
The purpose of God for the
midwives was a good one. He
had planned that they would be
His instruments of deliverance in
the midst of midwives who were
loyal to Pharaoh so that Moses
would be saved at the time of
birth. Their assignment started
and ended with making sure that
Moses was safely delivered and
handed over to his mother. For
being faithful, God rewarded
them for that assignment. This
tells us that certain assignment
may be very brief but time-
bound. If Shiphrah and Puah
were not on duty at the time
Moses was born, or if they had
been distracted by other business
affairs outside the hospital,
Moses could have died. God may
want you to perform a specific
but time-bound assignment: it
could be to be a blessing to a
needy fellow or His servant. A
need could suddenly arise that
you would be required to meet,
if you are too slow, you will lose
the opportunity. Do you know
that some of such opportunities
may never come again? Be
proactive and sensitive to the
Holy Ghost. Be ready to speedily
take up opportunities that God
brings your way. Pray that you
will be in the right place at the
right time, to glorify God.

Prayer Point: Each time you leave where God
has placed you, or fail to do
what you were supposed to do,
the Kingdom of God suffers.
Father, thank you for adding
another year to Pastor (Mrs)
Folu Adeboye. Lord, begin a
new thing of joy in her life and
make her mother of more
nations.
