THIS MAY BE TOO DEEP FOR SOME: But there are times when God will assign you to a person that don’t want to be connected to you!
Leaders, there are some persons who will never respect or honor your connection in their life, but will fight against everything that will produce a relationship with them. And because the warfare is so great in establishing a relationship with them, sometimes you may want to cut them off disconnect or discard them.
But God forbids you to do so, because not only are you a piece of their destiny, but they are also a piece of yours.
Knowing how to function from a rejected position has not been mastered by many in leadership. Thinking you can fill that slot with someone else, when it’s assigned to that person who is rejecting you, and what you have been assigned to their life to accomplish would truly be doing the other person an injustice.
You can’t deposit into someone else what God has purposed for another. Learning how to work with opposition, without looking at the situation as a assignment of failure, takes a person with the heart of Christ operating in them.
Knowing how to maintain your position, so that you can complete your assignment, will take much prayer on your part, because you are dealing with someone who may want what you have to offer, but doesn’t want to be involved with you.
As a leader, you can’t stop looking at them as a soul, because if you look at their humanity, (attitude character actions) you will abort the assignment with them.
Keeping the importance of pleasing God and obeying Him foremost in your view, helps you to bypass the dictates of your flesh that wants to rebel against the hard process of purpose in being assign to the person. It takes a great amount of maturity to embrace an assignment of opposition and rejection.
The road to our destiny and purpose sometimes takes us through some character building exercises that shows us our weakness and sore spots within us that we thought we had mastered.
The challenges we face, and the methods sometimes God uses to teach us humility obedience and patience, may seem extreme, but when you are called to do great exploits your development has to go through rigorous training. Remember to much is given much is required. That yes may take you into places that your flesh may scream fight and wrestle with but if you allowed God to take you through the fire you will be process and come forth as gold!
~ Apostle Barbara R. Thomas
