Apostle Grace Lubega
Ecclesiastes 6:1-2(KJV); There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men: A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
A story is told of a man of God to whom the Lord appeared and instructed to build a church in a certain area. God gave him the exact specifications of how the Church should look like.
When the man pondered on the weight of the responsibility given to him and what it would take to get the job done, he abandoned his station and his call.
Several years later, he passed by the place the Lord had told him to build the church. In the exact location he had been instructed to build stood a structure with the exact specifications the Lord had given him.
Shocked and heartbroken, he entered the Church, sat at the back and started to weep. When the minister of that house saw him, he came over, wishing to know why the man wept.
With tears in his eyes, he said, “you are standing where the Lord told me to stand a few years ago.”
Child of God, a divine assignment is very important to God, that He will not hesitate to transfer it to another person if an assigned man or woman takes it for granted. The irony is that He will leave you with your gift but recall His mandate.
This, like our theme scripture explains, is an evil disease. It calls for deep personal reflection. There is no obstacle that heaven will not move out of the path of divine assignment. Never allow that movable thing to be you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: There is no obstacle that heaven will not move out of the path of divine assignment. Never allow that movable thing to be you.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for the course that You have set before me. Be it far from me to be indifferent to divine mandates and assignments. I am alive to Your purposes and will for my life. I will finish well, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
