The Greatest Investment

The Greatest Investment

“The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the Gospel preached to them.” ‭- Matthew‬ ‭11:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father.” – John‬ ‭14:12‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I recently heard a man of GOD say, “GOD does not protect people, He protects His investment”. This statement blew my hair right back and hit my soul. It was a “makes all the sense” moment for me. As God’s people, we have been called into a Kingdom purpose, and as such, the Holy Spirit deposits all manner of gifts into us so that we can fulfill our mandate. He does all and whatever it takes to make sure we succeed in what He wants us to accomplish, in the time that He has given us on earth. GOD is not about to let His investment go down or crumble because it was worried about a roof or food, that would not make for very good business. So we must trust that He will always take care of our basic needs so that we can focus on the greater picture. A lot of the things we are concerned about are in actual fact a distraction to what we should be about, which is our Father’s business.

When we look at Mathew 11:5 we see that the commission is indeed great. So great in fact, that it can seem daunting, if not impossible to the average believer. When we read about the people used of GOD both in and outside of the Bible, it’s clear that they all fully operated in their callings and performed these great works that our LORD Jesus spoke of. We also see one common thread in all their stories and that is, that they gave themselves completely to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit. They gave up everything for the Kingdom of GOD and as such, were used mightily. “For many are called, but few are chosen.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬.

The chosen ones are the ones GOD continues to protect and lift up in leaps and bounds. They are the men and women who are willing to take up their cross every day, to not only do the works of Christ but to also support and serve the vision given by GOD to the leaders and generals that He has called for His Church. They walk in the power and authority given to them by the Holy Spirit for their commission, and there is no question as to what they can and are doing when it comes to demonstrating signs, miracles, and wonders. They are known by the kingdom of darkness and feared because they are continually conquering and destroying it.

We have not been called to be observers, but to be participants in the great war between good and evil. We are called to be soldiers in the army of GOD, and the gifts we have been given are not for us to show off, but are for the edification of the Church. One day we will have to give an account of what we did with what we have been given, and this includes the number of days that we are here on earth. We are God’s greatest investment and our desires, dreams, and hopes should always have Christ at the center. This is how we will continually conquer, not only in the spirit but in every other area of our lives.
