Two Different People, But With One Purpose, Part 2 of 3

Are You Wondering What You Should Do? Should You Look Ahead?

But maybe you are one of those people who have heard Jesus is coming back. But you have questions about whether or not you should even plan for a future. You wonder if you should have any “dreams” for the future. You wonder if you should even bother to think that far ahead, “After all Jesus will probably be back before then.” If you are than this is for you.

Luke 19:12-13

He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. (KJV)

This is a parable that Jesus spoke and He was speaking of the end times. He says to “occupy” until He comes. What does it mean to occupy? It means basically this-

Matthew 24:44-46

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. (KJV)

This servant was given a command and given a job to be the ruler over the household until his lord returned. Occupying means to be doing what God tells you. Obeying Him and putting your faith towards the thing that He has asked you to do. That thing maybe getting married and raising a family; it maybe going to college to become a teacher or a doctor; it maybe becoming a pastor, evangelist, or missionary. Whatever God puts in your heart that He wants you to do, that is what He wants to come back and find you doing.

Yes, you should dream and plan, BUT make sure that it isn’t something that you conjured up in your own mind. You spend time with the Lord and find out for yourself what He wants for you. Don’t go running to someone else and try to get from him/her what you should do. They cannot get it for you and they cannot know for you. They need to focus in on what God has for them, not you. You go and pray and find out from God what you should do. Go, pray and you find out from Him what you are supposed to be putting your faith towards. Once He tells you, than you get in step with God and you work with Him. He will anoint you to do the work. He will give you the grace to get it done. He will give you favor and open doors for you, making it possible for you to do what He says. But you have to work with Him. You can’t go out there on your own strength. It will fail you. You will fall and it wouldn’t be God’s fault. Once He tells you what it is that He wants you to do, don’t go running out there trying to do it on your own. Receive it, than listen to what His plan is, His wisdom on how to get it done, His knowledge of every aspect of it, His understanding on when and where it is to be done.
