John 9:4 “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”
The slogan for Nigerian Student Union Government is “Aluta Continua, Victoria Ascerta, which means Struggle continues, Victory is sure. The amazing thing is despite that they are students in the institution of learning they sing “inside aluta gentleman no dey”. Similarly, Brethren in the spiritual sense of grabbing your destiny to work for God there is no gentleman. It is a Soldier’s call. A soldier does not fight because he wants to, he does not obey command because he doesn’t have a choice neither does he embark on a mission for his life or promotion. Its a must that a soldier completes his mission, else he is not qualified to be a soldier. Some die fighting and are given heroic funeral. Some fight well at the beginning and end up losers, Some complete the mission successfully and are promoted.
Christian, are you in the mission the commander placed you? Battles are here and there to fight, battles meant to stop you on your mission, the ministry God placed into your hands. As spiritual soldiers, we must take our stand in faith and obedience to our commander.
2Timothy 2:3. “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
A soldier is focused on the battle at hand; if he becomes friends with the enemy, then he has betrayed the battalion. Set your spirit, soul and body on the mission at hand.
Now is the time to stand up and do the works of Him that sent you. Oh! are you still doubtful of your ministry? Arise and be the vessel God wants you to be. A vessel honour in the hands of the Lord of the heavens and earth.
Point of Prayer: Help me, Lord Jesus Christ to be a soldier, to fight and overcome the battles in life to fulfilling my mission. Amen.
