When you’re anointed, it can become frustrating waiting on “your time” to come. Others are seemingly moving forward in their purpose and you feel stuck.
You start second guessing, comparing, coveting, and even resenting. Why them and not me? Did I hear God right? Does anyone see that I’m called?
It can even make you give up on your call altogether because you aren’t where you thought you’d be by now. Your reality is not aligning with your dreams. You look back on the prophetic words you’ve received and get frustrated.
How do I know this? Well, I’ve been there.
What I’ve come to realize is that my faith has to be based on what God said and not what I see. God doesn’t lie. Period.
Also, my identity is not in being a “prophet to the nations” or being “booked”. My identity is in being a child of God. If I never preach on a major platform, I am no less anointed, called, or chosen. I’ll prophesy and preach whether it’s 2 or 2,000.
Be careful not to make your calling your idol.
Lastly, everything is beautiful in it’s time. You have to celebrate when others are living out their purpose because hating on them won’t help.
Them today, you tomorrow.
Study. Prepare. Learn who you are. Build genuine friendships. Build your faith. Draw close to God. Serve well. Live your life.
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
