Play Your Role

“…Whatever job you’re given to do, do it. God is with you!” (1 Samuel 10:7). That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.

The earlier instructions of Samuel to Saul mostly spoke of what people would do for Saul; some men were meant to give him good news at Rachel’s sepulchre, others were meant to give him two loaves of bread at the plain of Tabor. Saul was meant to receive from others without really doing anything.

After the season of receiving without doing anything, Saul entered a season where he had a job to do. Expansion was coming his way, and Samuel reminded him that he had things to do. Saul had a role to play in making his king ship a success; apart from things God made happen, Saul had things he should make happen.

Friend, in your season of Exceeding Expansion, take note: God will not do everything for you. In the making of the greatness God will bring your way this year, play your role. Strive to excel and be exceptional in all your ways.

Be committed, dedicated, consistent, resilient, etc. It’s your job to display the right attitudes, good manners, good disposition, right approach, etc. 

Make the right prayers, sow the right seeds, take the right steps, make the right efforts, and do whatever is in your power to do.

Saul’s king ship eventually failed when he failed to do what God wanted him to do. Your success this year does not depend on God alone; it also depends on you. If you fail to play your role, you might embrace failure instead of the Exceeding Expansion that God has promised.

Wake up and play your role effectively. Apart from God’s role, your success also lies in your hands, and it lies in what you do or fail to do. Ecclesiastes 9 vs. 10 says: “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might…”.

Pray With Me: Lord, help me to play my role in achieving my Exceeding Expansion, in Jesus’ name!
Welcome To Your Season Of Power And Glory.
