I hope you enjoyed last week’s message around purpose. Today I would like to elaborate more on it with another vision I had at a recent Women’s function.
We all are created uniquely with a very specific purpose to glorify God’s name. But how does it correlate with everyone around us and their purposes? And how often do we fall into the comparison trap which is a brilliant ploy by our enemy to distract us from what we were created to do.
We are all children of the King of kings, adopted by Him unconditionally. We are inheritants of His favour and His future. We are all in-dwellers of His castle.
Who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Each of us represent a tower of the castle, but before I continue, I need to make it clear that the tower in my vision was NOT similar to the tower of Babel. The tower of Babel was to glorify man’s progress and not to glorify God.
Genesis 11: 4
They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name,
otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”
The towers I saw was towers God created, each one uniquely made for each of His children. The towers were there to glorify His name. I saw many stairs spiraling up into the tower. The steps are your life’s journey towards the purpose He has for you. At the top of the stairs, was a platform. From this platform, there were windows looking out over the Kingdom. A platform and a place for each of God’s children to shine their light, honouring Him.
I realized that the tower was designed so craftily, that only the person who the tower was designed for, will have an optimum effect on the light that it transmits out. If person A climb Person B’s tower, the light will never be as strong as Person A’s light in A’s tower or Person B’s light in B’s tower. Each person’s light will only come to maturity in his/her own unique tower.
How many times in life do we want to live someone else’s life. Do we want to do what they do, do we envy what they have and what they have achieved, not realizing that we are doing such an injustice to our own light, our own purpose. Your light will only shine to its full potential, if you find your own tower that God made you, climb the spiritual journey upwards and let your light shine for Him.
I also realized that there are so many times that our envy deny our friends to climb their towers. They feel guilty to start climbing their tower and fulfilling their purpose, because they know if can create jealousy, strife, comparison in their friend’s lives. They will rather stay where they are than offend a friend. The problem with that is that we are offending God, not doing what He created us to do. Do not allow friends with their own insecurities to pull you down from your tower (unless it is not the one God intended for you). We should motivate each other, assist each other each to find our unique tower, climb it and shine for the glory of God.
Find your tower. Shine your light.
Until next week, God bless
