What will keep you from pursuing your God-given mission? Should there be tribulation, distress, persecution, danger, a lack of support, or a lack of resources? You must understand that you will not be able to deliver results until your heart becomes unstoppable. There will always be fifty-five million reasons to justify your failure, but not one excuse. You could even take things a step further by “rebranding” your failure. Many individuals give up on their original goal and look for some fluffy, meaningless words to justify their failure. You must first define your mission. Then you must decide that nothing will stand in your way.
There is no such thing as an easy or effortless accomplishment. There will always be a disadvantage or something unpleasant to deal with. Nobody out there is working on something important without being met with opposition. In the words of Albert Einstein, “great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” You will face opposition. You will have to deal with poverty and a lack of resources. You must, however, find a way to continue. You may have heard stories about Thomas Edison toiling for years before inventing the first practical light bulb. Nobody in the world has all of the resources they require. You must learn to persevere.
You have the ability to lead and grow the mission. Whatever your age. Regardless of educational level. Regardless of whether you have the gift of leadership, the gift of persuasion, or any other “gift” you believe you should have but don’t. 1 Corinthians 15:58 (ESV), “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” The only important thing is to remain steadfast and immovable. What shall separate you from your God-given mission?
