“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” ~ John 4:34
Here, Jesus actually implies that your assignment from the Father is some sort of food.
And what does food do?
Food supplies nourishment to your body, boosts your energy levels, improves your body functions, and helps to improve your immune system. It also reduces your stress level, keeps you active, and shields you from diseases. Food helps you sleep better and be more rested when you wake with loads of energy to function in each day. It helps you live a healthy, longer, and more vibrant life.
So, when you’re not eating and feeding well, you experience weakness of the body, you experience constant fatigue, your immune system is compromised, exposing you to lots of diseases, which may ultimately lead to death.
We have all kinds of food, and Jesus is saying that your assignment from the Father is some sort of food.
That’s the reason someone who is about his assignment, doing the work the Father has assigned to him to do, usually experiences strength and is able to make progress in life.
That person is enabled by God to be fruitful; and usually these sorts of people tend to live very long and fulfilling lives, simply because they’re being nourished in a very supernatural sense.
It’s in the Bible, and Jesus said it: “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”
It means that when you find the assignment which the Father has given to you to carry out in this world, you’ve located some very powerful food.
Personally, I understand that part of my assignment from the Father is to give this message to the world. And, whenever I’m actively engaged in teaching this message regularly and faithfully, and I can see it reaching the world, I get fulfillment; I am happy and satisfied. At such times, I don’t even need to eat any physical food because it keeps me going.
That’s the power in discovering your God-given assignment and actively carrying it out.
So, it’s not just your natural food that you should feed on daily, but also feed on the assignment God has given to you, because its food.
May God help you to discover your assignment and carry it out faithfully to His praise and glory.
