For Such a Time As This

For Such a Time As This
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Who then is the faithful and wise servant whom his master has put in charge of his household to give the others [in the house] their food supplies at the proper time?  Blessed is that [faithful] servant when his master returns and finds him doing so (Matthew 24:45-46 AMP).
As the kingdoms of this world are being shaken, we can be assured that the kingdom of God will never be shaken or removed. He sits upon an eternal throne of glory, righteousness, and power. He is not pacing the floor, wringing his hands, or wiping the sweat off an anxious brow as He ponders what to do. The Lord reigns!
How blessed you are to have the King of kings in charge of your life! You are His servant and He is your Master. As your Master, He has given you an assignment. You have a God-given place to serve Him, for such a time as this.
Your assignment and your place are God’s choosing. His choice was not based upon your talent, or your accomplishments. It was based upon where He wanted you to serve Him. That choice was made from God’s wisdom. It is the perfect place for you. If you feel inadequate, consider it a blessing. It is because of your inadequacy that you will remain completely dependent upon Him.
When God looked at me, a weak little man, He said, “I can use him because of his insignificance.” -Francis of Assisi
Your place and your assignment are not being measured by your results. That is the Master’s business. There are two things a servant can do that will please the one you serve. The first is to serve Him willingly. The second is to serve Him faithfully. 
In the kingdom of God it is not busyness that receives the reward of “well done”, but faithful obedience which comes from the heart.
