Assignment: Definition

An assignment is a task someone is given to do. The assignment can be a project to complete. It can be part of your main job or the assignment could be your main job.

Just as a person has earthly assignments, he also has a spiritual or heavenly assignment to complete.

Equipped or Not Equipped?

Sometimes people make the mistake of thinking that a person has to be equipped to do God's work. It would be much better to know that God equips you as you go about performing the task He has given you.

God helps you complete every assignment He gives you when you are open for that to happen. God won't give you an assignment and expect you to fail, especially if you involve Him in the process.

Biblical Scholars Agree

There is a long list of preachers and teachers who have given information and guidelines about a person's assignments. The biblical scholars include:

  • Bishop T.D. Jakes
  • Joyce Meyer
  • Dr. Mike Murdock
  • Dr. Myles Munroe
  • Jentezen Franklin
  • Creflo Dollar
  • Victoria Osteen
  • Many Others

They might not have used the exact words, but the concept is the same according to all of them.

Keys to Your Assignment

Seeing a Problem
Seeing a problem usually is a clue to your assignment. Whenever you see a problem, it is your invitation to do something about it. You might wonder why others don't see the problem. They might not see the problem because it is not part of their assignment. However, it is part of yours. Therefore, find out what you can do to help correct the problem.

Being Angry About Something
Your assignment might be in something that angers you. Your anger over something might be the motivating factor to cause you to get up and do something to fix the situation.

Having a Love for Something
Your love for something will help you with your assignment. When you love something, you will want to do whatever you can to protect it and make it better. Think back over your life and see that your assignments can be traced back to something you loved.

Recognizing a Need
Charities, food banks, and other organizations come about because someone saw a need and filled it. Research and studies reveal that everything that has come about happened because someone had an assignment to perform.

Everyone Is Given an Assignment

Some assignments can be completed in a short period of time. Some assignments are long term and you will have to work on them for a long time, probably until you leave this earth.

No assignment is given for selfish reasons. God gives assignments to benefit others, according to 1 Peter 4:10.

The Bible shows many examples of the patriarchs who had assignments to help others. Moses is a very good example. He was quite satisfied tending Jethro's sheep on the backside of the mountain away from people. He was given the most important assignment of his life when God called him from a burning bush (Exodus 3:1-17).

Moses was told to go to Egypt to deliver God's people out of slavery. At first, the shepherd objected and gave God a series of excuses while he could not perform that assignment. For every excuse Moses gave, God gave him assurances.

Moses did go to Egypt and confronted Pharaoh. He led the Hebrews through the Red Sea and into the desert where they were for 40 years. Moses died before the Hebrews reached their destination, but he completed the assignment God gave him.

Then Joshua took over and led the Hebrews through the Jordan River and into the promised land. This shows that an assignment can be shared by others. However, everyone must do his part.

Find Out What Your Assignment Is

If you think you do not have an assignment, think again. Everyone has an assignment whether it is known or not. Here are some things to do that might help you identify what your assignment is.

  1. Pray and ask God to give you information about what He wants you to do.
  2. Ask your family members and friends what they see you doing that you are good at.
  3. Notice when opportunities come your way that might point you in the direction of your assignment.
  4. Monitor how good you feel in your spirit when you do certain things.

Do you know what your assignment on earth is?
