I, Paul, have been sent on special assignment by Christ as part of God’s master plan”. Colossians 1:1 (MSG)
Don’t you just love the confidence here? “I, Paul, have been sent on special assignment.” No apologies, no wondering, no suggesting—just saying what is. Well, the same is true for you dear heart. You have a special assignment from God as a part of His master plan and it makes sense doesn’t it? After all you are His masterpiece!
There is a place for you, a role you have that no one else in all the world can fill, and you have a unique position, custom made for you in this exact moment in history, in the unfolding revelation of “His Story.”
Oh, the joy in the Father’s heart when you are walking in, and fulfilling, that assignment. All of heaven stands ready to help—they heard the good news that God has called you, and the richness of all that He has called you to, and they have waited for you all this time.
Go ahead—step in! Pick up your confidence and courage and walk on ahead. You are anointed for this, sent by Christ Himself, with His very power at work in you. Masterpiece of the Most High God, joy of His heart—never fear! You’ve got this and He’s got you!
I thank You Jesus, that before the foundations of the world, God had a perfect plan for me. I thank You Holy Spirit that Your life; Your gifts; and Your anointing is with, and in me. By grace Holy Spirit, and with Your help, I can fulfill all that God desires and has planned, for me to do.
Help me to see my worth and value in that way—to see what I am called and gifted for—not for my own good or glory Lord—only that I might serve and bless You every day.
I receive my special assignment Lord, just as Paul did, as part of Your Master Plan, and I am honoured and humbled that it could be so!
Here I am Lord, ready and willing to follow You, wherever You want to go!
