When It’s NOT Your Assignment


Please do not take on what God does NOT want you to do no matter how wonderful and even godly the opportunity may seem!

No matter what you think or feel about an opportunity, no matter how tempted you may be to say YES, no matter how anyone else may encourage or push or pressure you to take on an opportunity, if God does NOT want you to say YES, then say NO!

If He has made clear an opportunity, assignment, responsibility, etc. is NOT His will for you, do NOT take it on!

Why not?

  1. Going against God is disobedience i.e. sin.
  2. You will likely be distracted from God and what His will actually is for you.
  3. You may get in the way of the person or people God desires to take on the opportunity you have gone against Him and taken on.
  4. You may end up exhausted and use up the resources God has given you for the wrong purpose.
  5. You will likely not be fully available to do what God’s will for you actually is.

The Lord Jesus Christ desires that we take delight in Him and in doing His will!

“I delight to do Your will, O my God,…” Psalms 40:8 NKJV
