Are You The One?

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 163

If someone was to walk up to you and say, are you the one? You probably will be caught off-guard and surprised. You may also possibly respond and ask what do you mean? The one of what explain please? It's a normal reaction and reveals the truth of humanity when things turn out contrary to our expectations. In human relationships, people have searched in all seriousness and caution for that special someone. Often-times when they thought such individual have been found then as time unfolds they are met with surprise. This article seeks to address the modalities that surround this subject and put forth the perimeters of being the one for a divine assignment.

Prophet John the Baptist was chosen and ordained of God for the time in which he lived. He was a seed of prophecy given to old parents, Zecharias and Elizabeth to carry out Messianic proclamation. If you are the one for whatever assignments, God will allow unique circumstances to come your way or happen to you. The important thing is to be sensitive to the voice of God's spirit in your life. Are you the one to build the missing bridge to your generation? God will not leave you in the dark he will give you signs and witnesses to clarify his destiny in your life. John the baptist was born for a specific purpose, and this was confirmed by the angels to Elizabeth who had passed the age of bearing children.

Are you the one, the chosen vessel, the chosen family to be the fore-runner of the salvation and blessings to all humanity? Do you live your life with preparedness for divine encounter? I admonish you to make the following affirmations:

I am born for a purpose That's why I am still here Despite life's challenges that have come my way My destiny is in the Lord's hands

God always qualify his chosen vessels by his own standard that, sometimes confuse human judgment or expectation. Consider the case of David being chosen among the well-deserved brothers. If you're the one for the Lord's service, he will make crooked places straight for you.

John the Baptist's father was a priest, the mother was of the levitical tribe of Aaron. The Bible says, "And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless" (Luke 1:6, KJV).

With such testimony, everything should have been so good with them. Instead, the Bible says that they had no children, for Elizabeth was barren.

Are you the one for prophetic fulfillment? Don't allow the challenges you're facing define your actions and miss out on his will and purpose. As you notice, they were not hopeless and bitter, excusing their action on lack of children. They were still carrying out their divine responsibilities in the house of God despite their predicament.

If you sense the leading of God's spirit in your life, there is need for:

• Godly lifestyle • Faithfulness and commitment to his house • Obedience to his commandment as recorded in the scriptures • Steadfastness in your faith walk

You know what, at the time far beyond the age of child-bearing, God visited them and prophet John the Baptist was born. Let me remind you that, trouble is like the wind, it will blow upon you at some point in your life if you keep on living.

Are you the one God is looking for? Instead of whining, complaining, and questioning, you must learn to trust him, that's the key.
