I have often wondered how some people want to do everything. They are not just content in their place of assignment.
I recently worked with someone and I was always upset and at the same time wondering, why does this person want this and that? I mean, you have enough on your table that you’ve not even done justice to.
Look, I am not against people admiring what is good in others and wanting to be that. No! Because the scripture tells us to covet good gifts (1 Corinthians 12:31) and I, also admire and some times covet anything I see that is good and goes in line with my calling.
That’s not the problem, the problem is some of us don’t even know our lanes, so we can’t stay in our places of assignment because we don’t know why we have been called into that office. Now you get my point. Right?
Imagine if King Saul had stayed on his lane ‘jeje’, but he felt because he was the king, he could as well function in the office of the priest when God has not called him there. To make his case worse, he acted in disobedience and not in ignorance. (1 Samuel 13:9-14)
The truth is, you can be anything but you cannot be everything. No doubt, some of us are engraced with more than one gifts and the ability to be anything at a time but don’t stay where God has not called you to, that will be disobedience. Don’t be Jonah!
Don’t do what God has not told you to do. Learn from King Saul!
Yes! It is true that God has called everyone of us to be something for His glory. But be specific in your calling, get clarification from God if you’re not sure.
Recognize that you have not been called to be everything or be like everybody or walk in everybody’s shoes, your calling is specific to you, walking the path of other people is discontentment of purpose.
You are peculiar, so also is your assignment here on earth, understand why you’ve been called into your office, know what you have been called to do and stay on your lane. You will do well if you’re in your place of assignment because that’s where the blessing is. Selah!
