“He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.” Isaiah 49:2 NIV

Consecration is an important part of every believer’s journey regardless of what your calling is. It may be seen in two aspects, consecrations that are general and for everyone, and others that are specific to the call of an individual.

It has little to do with what you will do or become but more to do with circumcising your heart from the appetites that may hinder you in your process to reflect the finished work of Christ (John 17:4) and do the works he predestined for you to walk in (Ephesians 2:10).In our theme scripture, the prophet brings an aspect that is ever too common when it comes to consecration: feeling hidden. Many consider this a delay, or a frustration of potential and many a time end up prematurely getting themselves out of the process before they are a polished arrow.

While the opposite may be true of people that may truly be delayed for different reasons, or lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6), it is most important for you child of God to discern the times and to stay for as long as the Lord has you that you may be formed and not be found wanting.

Prayer: Father I thank you for this wisdom. I know how to discern the times of my formation and I do not attempt to come out prematurely. I have learnt to abide in Christ that his grace may perform in me the works no man can take credit for, and for your glory. It shall be said of me that I was a ready man for every thing you have assigned me to, in Jesus name. Amen!
