God: authorizes what measure He wants displayed….
1 Corinthians 13:9-10(KJV) “For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away”.
If you are in ministry for God, I am pretty sure that at times you wonder what you missed and by how far did you miss it in reference to direction from God. Although you might be anointed for service or carry a mantle to operate in one of the gifting that Apostle Paul mentions in 1 Corinthians 12, the one thing we cannot get away from is the human factor.
At critical moments when we ought to be receiving full proof communication from God, but the distractions can be costly and it is as a result of the human factor. Gladly we have the working of the Holy Ghost in our lives to circumvent these attacks or to release the 100% continuum plan for completion of the task.
Scripture tells us “we know in part, and we prophesy in part”; we bring our minds, bodies, a willingness to accomplish the will of God and this is our part and we can only do so much according to our own strength. But as the Word continues, “but when that which is perfect is come”, pointing to the presence of the Holy Ghost on the scene to cause interruption to the affliction, the sickness, the brokenness; then it is a union of our natural with God’s supernatural power equating a perfection of the work at hand.
The partial application of our strengths are wiped out, negated or even made non prosperous; the ministration of the Holy Ghost in any situation removes our efforts and completes any process, hence “then that which is in part shall be done away”. God is working in the situation, so there is a difference.
What effort, accomplishment, and plans have you been fighting to do in your strength or in your natural without the anointing of the oil or the Holy Ghost to finalize the process? If it is that you seek deeper in God, get in agreement with Him; know what He requires and don’t suspect or assume you know; because a process which could have been seamless with the power of God doing the work, now becomes heavy and a chore.
It’s all about God and His will for your life; don’t make the choice then ask for Him to bless it. You seek his face on what it ought to be, and then proceed with His grace. Aren’t you tired of being intelligent with your own wisdom? Seek the wisdom of God for your growth and progress.
