What does it mean to be ‘about your father’s business’?
With the pressures and stresses of life, it can seem overwhelming for some to focus on what God is telling them. The way you should juggle things is different for everyone, some can manage with outstanding pressure whereas, some crumble at the first sign of trouble. But what to remember is that God has given you a purpose, ask God to reveal what that purpose is and how to go about fulfilling it.
Now, it’s one thing asking God to reveal what your purpose is and another thing living within your purpose. For those of you that know me, will notice that recently, I have been encouraging others and supporting those who are seriously pursuing their purpose. This is it, many Christians lack the support and encouragement from others which already prevents them from starting something that God has stirred within them. I’m not saying that we need to be praising every Tom, Dick and Harry about doing what they are supposed to be doing but, a likkle ‘well done’ here and ‘congratulations’ there wouldn’t go amiss. Just as Ecclesiastes 4:9 states that ‘’two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour, for if they fall, one will uplift his companion’’. This is what we should be experiencing, being able to uplift each other instead of looking out for number 1.
When you are living within your purpose, you will find that people in your life start to disappear like Casper the ghost. DO NOT BE ALARMED NOW. People who God knows can’t be part of your walk, he will remove them from your life for a reason. He knows that where he is taking you, these people cannot go because they are not spiritually or mentally ready. The thing you have to remember is that you cannot reopen a door that God has already closed. When you have surrendered everything to God and are walking in your purpose, you will find that God will bring people in your life that you just know are heaven sent. These people will tend to bring you great news or offer you opportunities that go against your wildest dreams.
Then, you just know it is God.
God can and will use anyone and everyone, do not be afraid to tell people of the wonders of God and all that he has done for you. John 15:16 says that ‘’you did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you’’.
Lemme just break this down for y’all:
- You, yeah you, did not choose God moreover, God chose you.
- He knows that you are special and that what he sees in you, you will prosper and flourish.
- We should go out and walk in our purpose so evidently that we begin to plant seeds of God everywhere we go, and the fruit will grow beautifully so that when we ask God of things, he may give us what our heart desires.
How can you begin to be about your father’s business?
