God’s Timetable – Part Two | Sunday | August 26


Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

–Romans 12:11 NIV

Here’s the remaining building blocks to consider when fulfilling where God has called you.

Progress, Provision, & Power: God will give you opportunities where you can practice on a smaller field similar to what you aspire to achieve in a larger arena in the future. These minor, yet very important, opportunities have a way of perfecting you for the major things to come. Each time that you do well, God is confident that you’re prepared to handle larger tasks. You can trust God to supply the necessities you need to fulfill the calling He gives you. He also blesses you with the power of His Spirit—who helps you to grow and mature in the fruits of the Spirit so you can effectively use the gifts and talents God entrusts to your care.

No matter which building stage God currently has you in, remain assured that what God calls you to, He will help you accomplish it well. As you passionately pursue the things God assigns you—individually and collectively—you can be confident that God is working behind the scenes by working things out in your favor and for His greater purpose. He does not call His children to lose; He calls them to win!

Prayer Focus

  • Praise God for His help, guidance, power, and provision that He gives to you on your way to where He is bringing you.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to give you discernment to know when to take on a new thing that’ll prepare you for greater things ahead.
