Jesus rose so we could live the life He has planned for us. Jeremiah 29:11 says,

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

His plan is for us to reach out to the world, and we see in Mark 16:15 that Jesus commands this of us by saying,

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

What are you called to do for Christ? What are you called to do for the kingdom? Whatever it is, you need to rise up and do it. I’m speaking to myself when I say no more slumber and sleeping. Proverbs 6:4 tells us,

“Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do” (NLT).

If you don’t know what you are called to do, speak with your Pastor and ask if they could help you. 

David had the vision of the temple, but Solomon rose up to build the temple. In 1 Chronicles 28:6-10 and 20, Soloman was given a task. He did everything to make his father, King David, and his Heavenly Father proud. Once we are given our mission, we should do it with excellence. I plan to open a faith-based salon and spa next year. I chose this year to design this vision so I can rise up. To rise up, I must die to self and crucify my flesh; this is my dream and God’s gift of ministry to the women of His body and a sacrifice of money and time. But in the end, God will get the victory. When we pray about this, we should pray David’s prayer...

David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, Lord, the God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name" (1 Chronicles 29:10-13).

In the end, 1 Chronicles 29:25 says,

The Lord highly exalted Solomon in the sight of all Israel and bestowed on him royal splendor such as no king over Israel ever had before.

As you rise up to do what He has called you to do, He will bless you.

Father, thank you for giving us the opportunities to rise up and partner with what You have planned for us long ago. Help us to hear your calling clearly and to take action when you give us directions. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
