Are you ready to launch?
Mark 6:1-3 NASB
Jesus went out from there and came into His hometown; and His disciples followed Him. When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? Are not His sisters here with us?” And they took offense at Him. In an instant Jesus went from a place of obscurity to then being thrust into the spotlight for the world to hear His message because this was His time.
Where did He come from? The suddenness of His acceleration had people astonished and put out, leaving them in disbelief and subsequently denying His power.
His wisdom and the miracles that were in His hands were so profound that the religious locals rejected Him and never experienced His salvation. But what God had been brewing on the inside of Him, was being developed long before He was commissioned. It was a process that began in His Father’s house even at twelve years of age.
Likewise, God has been cultivating the wisdom and gifting in you, to equip you for the place of influence that is unfolding before you.
While you have simply been going about your business and spending time in your Father’s house, the Carpenter has been building inside of you all that is required for the coming season of favour and significance.
So just watch as your obscurity is unveiled, launching you into the fullness of your calling. Now is your time!
