I have come to the conclusion that a lot of times we as Christians we have a misplaced identity, we get the delusion that truly serving Yahweh is being relevant and popular and that couldn’t be further from the truth, you don’t have to be Billy Graham to be great for God.
I think it’s easy to see our spiritual leaders and think If I’m gonna have a successful ministry I need to be like that dude… I’ve tried that and have been very unsuccessful at it and at ministry trying to be something that I’m not, so what are you? Where are you most successful for Yahweh? That can only be realized through intimacy and time with Him, you may be a great warrior mom or an excellent employee and mom, maybe your mission is to be head of your household maybe it’s being a great neighbor, yes these are all things that we want to be excellent at but we can tend to shine light on things in ministry giving them great importance when sometimes loving that dude at work that Hates you and doing a great job even though you don’t get paid enough, or your looked over again and again for a promotion and nothing seems fair is a ministry, and these things can become the hum drum of life. We need to remember that Yahweh is our redeemer and that this day like every day has been anointed and appointed and set forth by Him with you in mind, this day and the opportunities within it will never come again and we do not want to miss the greatness that Yahweh has for us just because we felt like our assignment from Him was minuscule and irrelevant. You are relevant today, maybe not Popular maybe not well known maybe the only people that admire you are some little kids that just want to make a mud pie or build some LEGOs or a McDonald’s employee at the drive through… whatever situation you are in Yahweh has appointed you and anointed you to be the best at whatever it is that you are doing today, so many times I’ve overlooked Yahweh’s assignment on my life in the (hum drum) of life because I was looking to the stars. I am reminded of something Yoda said to Luke in the Empire Strikes Back when he was training on Dagobah. “All his life has he looked away to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was… what he was doing.”
What is Yahweh doing in your midst today? The simplest things are holy and relevant, Jesus said:
“Here is another illustration Jesus used: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.””
Matthew 13:31-32 NLT
