“I am equipping you for great exploits in the days ahead.”

Many of you are having what I call a spiritual identity crisis by not knowing what your gifts and callings are and you are trying to find your place in body of Christ. It is comparable to the structure of a jigsaw puzzle. You know that you are a piece of this puzzle, but you are searching to see where you fit in.

There are also those of you who have been watching ministers for some time now and you covet their anointing. There is nothing wrong with admiring a minister’s gift and character, but the Lord has a unique ministry and anointing for each one of us.

Although you may be attracted to someone’s charisma, magnetism and the way they minister, Jesus has created you uniquely and wants to use you with your own personality, mannerisms and makeup. The gift that the Lord has for you is befitting to your personal characteristics. Don’t try to be someone that you were not created to be, but just be a submissive yielded vessel and watch what the Lord will do.

The Apostle Paul tells us to desire spiritual gifts and this should be natural for every believer. The Lord has created each one of us to be used with a particular presentation, teaching, writing or prophetic word. Each one of us has been created for a purpose. He has created you for such a time as this just the way that you are, and wants to use you just the same. He has a commission for you that only you can fulfill. Jesus delights in using ordinary people to do extraordinary things for His glory.

The Lord says,

“I have designed you not only to survive, but to thrive in the environment in which you have been created. You have been strategically placed where you are, and have been uniquely designed for My specific plan for your life. You have been born for this time and season in which you are living. It is no accident that you were born on a particular day, month and year, created with a distinct height, weight and gender. Even your personality has been en-grafted into My master plan for your life.

Just as I have equipped and called the prophets of old to do great works, I am also equipping you for great exploits in the days ahead. You have been chosen to have visitations with the King of Kings. You have been created to have encounters in the kingdom of heaven. Take your focus off your natural situations, and focus on spiritual realities. Do not say that these times are too difficult to survive, because I have created you to be a survivor.

Release your old ways of thinking and the mindsets that have kept you from advancing. Do not fear what lies ahead because you have been created in My image. Do not allow the enemy to divert your attention off your purpose and My plan for your life. You are a threat to the enemy, not by who you are, but by what you carry. I have placed My anointing on the inside of you in which there is no competition with the kingdom of darkness. I have strategically designed you with a purpose, plan and a destiny for greater works says the Lord.”

Scripture References:

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me,when as yet there were none of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. (1 Corinthians 14:1)

For the last couple of months I have had feelings of not being enough. There are so many people who do so much for the Kingdom of God. I know it’s not about “works” I just pray that I’m worthy. Because at the same time, what we do does matter. Thank you for this. Itso an answer to prayer.

Thank you for such an encouragement Lord!
In the midst of reading the frightening prophetic ‘headlines’, this is exactly what I needed to hear!
God bless you Elaine!
Many times, I feel so small, so insignificant and useless; words like this, remind me of my place in the Universal Body of Christ, worldwide!
Thank you, James for this website!

Wow such a great message. Today I got a verse Proverbs 19:21.
Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
If we pray that Gods will be done in our lives he will direct us down that path.

I’m no spring chicken by no means, but I know I could not do what I do now without having had the many deaths in the valley’s of my life over the last 30 years. The praise of God’s name and his faithfulness in all that I do is my greatest desire every time I write, sing, or play the harp. His love and faithfulness is absolutely beautiful.

This Word is for me. I have been searching for my purpose and assignment lately ….I have also been coveting the anointing of other ministers both known and unknown.
