Dear Tabernacle Family,
Impossible assignments are your assignment. Whew. To read that is exciting. To walk it is exciting. To live it is world shattering. When you think about the word impossible what do you think of? It’s defined by Webster as incapable of being or of occuring. Felt to be incapable of being done, attained, or fulfilled : insuperably difficult.
I’m presenting this to you this way because insignificance must be answered in order for us to move and live in the impossible. The question of “who am I” will be right in your face, unrelentlessly presenting itself to you. If we rely on our own humanistic responses, we will fail and fall short and never step into what God is calling us to do. The Lord wants to put His hand on your spirit and say, “Live again. Bigger and better than before.” God is faithful and He is interested in increase.
We are called to impossible assignments because we serve a God of the impossible. Moses had an impossible assignment. He actually protested God in Exodus 3:11-12, “But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you…” Do you hear the Lord responding to you? “I will be with you.”
This one statement, “I will be with you,” changes everything! He will do what only He can do. He is the only one that makes the difference. The Lord said, “I pick you.” He will make you the very one to unlock the doors. Do you pick Him? God is drawing you deeper into the impossibilities. I pray that the eyes of your understanding would be enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling (Ephesians 1:18).
God wants to show the world that He picked you. Would you come into agreement with what the Lord is doing in your life? Let it be done according to His word. Allow the Lord to make himself known to you while you make yourself known to Him.
The spirit of revelation wants to move you from where you are into activation. This ramp has a purpose. It’s to move you. Would we consider moving to the assignment? Allowing ourselves to shift our focus from who we were to who God is calling us to be?
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5.
