How many times have the Lord given you something to do but watched someone release the same thing or similar?
A lot of times this is the case. But this is not to discourage you. The enemy would love to make you think you either missed the timing of God in doing something and He has now given it to someone else. Or what you have recieve from God did not really come from Him.
This is NOT the case!
Understand, in the Kingdom of God we all have a part to play. No one have “the” revelation. God reveals in part so that we can come along side with others to give birth to the full picture. Just like being on a job.
There may be 5 people doing the same job, however, there may be a small part the other 4 employees are not doing. That small part is what’s needed the most to bring about a more productive result.
Another example, the Holy Spirit may give you a revelatory insight and experience on faith. Then, He may give someone else revelatory insight on faith and experience but from a total different angle. Somewhere down the road perhaps He may join you both together to do ministry for the building of the Body.
This is where many of us get so entangled. We get entangled in, “How come they are doing the same thing I am doing? Also, the competitive and jealous spirit.
Don’t allow yourself to fall prey into this suble trap. Keep being obedient to the part God gave you to do and don’t worry about what someone is doing. Just keep the ball rolling!
I’ve just experienced this morning! In working on some things the Lord gave me, I took notice that not only one but many others are working on the same thing. My first response was, “How could this be!” But then I started to think that this is a trick from the devil to get me to stop doing what I am doing. I had to remind myself that no one have all the revelatory insight and wisdom in all areas. Also, the Holy Spirit does not even give us the same exact experiences. He will take you down a path to reacha specific group of people that I may not be able to reach.This is why it behooves us to be helpers of one another not jealous of one another. This way we can assist others in helping others. Understand, what the Holy Spirit gives to all of us is important!
Remember, there are no losers in the Kingdom of God! WE ARE ALL WINNERS AND EVERYTHING THAT IS CONNECTED TO JESUS ALWAYS WIN!
So, square those shoulders back and get to plowing again! You are needed and so am I.
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.”I. Corinthians 13:9;10
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”2 Corinthians 2:14
