Plain Talk 4-23

By Daniel N. Brown 
     Have you ever found yourself being super frustrated trying to do something and not getting anywhere? It seems no matter how hard you try it doesn’t seem to work. 
      Wherever there is an anointing on something for you to do, there should be an “ease” about it. I don’t mean it should be easy, but there should be a sense of “simpleness.” 
      Here’s a good example; a person may be in a job situation that they may not particularly care for. In fact, they may absolutely hate what they are doing and maybe even feel sick before they go into work. Maybe he or she is “settling for.” 
     It is noble to do what you need to do, but you don’t have to dread it. Many people are in a job or in a relationship where they have no joy, peace, or sense of ease. It could be that God did not instruct them to take that particular job or to be in that particular relationship. 
     So many people are sad and discontent and continue to live their lives in disappointment and frustration because they are not doing what God designed them to do. These people are like a square peg trying to fit into a round hole. Maybe they are pursuing a task or a career that was recommended by someone who was successful at it. 
     What is simple for one person may not be simple for another. How many times have you seen someone do with ease what someone else could not do at all? We are not all cut from the same mold. 
     Everyone has a purpose in life. Some of these purposes are the same, but many are not. As mature and responsible people, we must know what our strengths and weaknesses are. Most people will say they don’t know what their strengths and weaknesses are, but I disagree. 
     Everyone knows what they are good at and what they are not good at. The reason many people are confused is, is that they equate their purpose with earning income. Success in life is not only about income, but enjoying and loving life. 
     If you find yourself being upset in your spirit with no joy or peace in some certain areas of your life, it could be that you are settling for less than what God wants for you. When God anoints something for you He adds no sorrow with it (Proverbs 10:22). Instead, He gives you a sense of peaceful contentment. 
     He doesn’t want you to “settle for.” He wants you to be happy and enjoy your life. John 10:10 says, “Christ died that we might have life and have life more abundantly” and Jesus said, “Ask, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24). 
    There’s no reason to keep putting up with a dead end job or relationship. Seek God’s ultimate will for your life. The devil would love to keep you thinking that what you have is all you’re gonna get. Don’t believe it! Seek God’s anointing and do with ease what you couldn’t do on your own. When His anointing is on something for you there is a flow that just seems to make everything work.
