TEXT:Jude 6 (AMP)
“And angels who did not keep (care for, guard, and hold to) their own first place of power but abandoned their proper dwelling place — these He has reserved in custody in eternal chains (bonds) under the thick gloom of utter darkness until the judgment and doom of the great day”


Contentment is not complacency. It is a sign of knowing the value of the eternal life you have in Christ.

One of the reasons why genuine ,deep and lasting vision is lacking is because of this shallowness and the hastiness to get results. God cannot communicate real vision to such a heart.Genuine kingdom vision is like a mustard seed which after it has fully grown becomes a dwelling place for many birds( Matthew 13:32). What does this imply? Seeds mean potentials.You cannot quantify the potentials that lie in a genuine vision even though it may look unreal now.If it looks attractive in the beginning ,that means it has reached it’s end. Do you want to start from end and end where you ought to begin? or the other way round? Even though your beginning is small but your later end should greatly increased( Job 8:7). So, if you want a great beginning ,you may end in the smallness. Genuine vision comes loaded with potentials which will be manifested to deliver solutions if well cultivated.You must know the right field to sow it, the right time,the right soil ,the watering and wait for the harvest time.

Do you know there are things never seen or heard that God still wants to do?( 1 Corinth 2:9).God want us to learn genuine principles from the father but not to copy and paste.That will put haste and pressure and you may not be able to walk the road of receiving the divine mandate for your time and fulfilling it.If in the continuity of the works of our father, a new page will be opened which will demand faith and patience for us to see the manifestation.The heart condition of being contented with whatever God has given you is a prerequisite for proper receptivity of your assignment. Be satisfied with whatever God has chosen for you.All of us cannot be the same.The leg is different from the hand but all are glorious in their places.Comparison will birth competition but contentment will birth complementation so that the name of God will be glorified. Even spiritually,what many call vision is mere ambition. It is self generated,combinations of what someone else has done that he or she desires etc.It is good to have passion to serve God but He must be the one to post you. Else all such work will be burnt with fire.Today, receive the grace to walk with God as he fulfilled his mandate through you in Jesus name.
