When you were little, you probably had a favorite toy. Before you could open that toy, more than likely it needed to be assembled. Just like that toy required assembling, God desires to create an installation within you. This is done through seasons of development and preparation. There must be an assembly of the pieces that are still finding their way inside of the whole picture. Are you in a silent season of life? Are you experiencing or have been in a season where you have endured multiple setbacks? Maybe during these difficult seasons, God is gracefully acquiring and inspecting the parts that are undone. Maybe He is quietly building the right door for you to walk through. Maybe He is graciously constructing that miracle moment for you. Assembly is required in every season with God. In our discouragement, God is still moving.
Equally to that toy that came with instructions—God is preparing you with instructions for the establishment of what is to come. You may be going through a season of repair and assembling, but His promises still stand. There is no final result or product without the construction and building of your assignment. God is carefully adjusting and modifying the conditions for your purposed plan. He is the ultimate assembler of everything that surrounds you. No part will ever be insufficient or flawed. God is intentional about what He is connecting to you. Though it may feel like a season of unpredictability, God is setting up every section of your assignment in Him. When the structure is built in the Hands of God, it will not be moved.
When we grow weary and defeated, think back to the assembly of the toy. Without the installation of the parts, you would have never been able to experience the toy in its entirety. Without the construction of the pieces, you would not have been able to see the beauty in the finished product. God is equipping you. You may not see it right now, but the development is for you. His strength will always remain with you. He may be rearranging your position; however, your purpose is solidified. There may be moments of silence; be assured that heaven is loudly cheering you on with His love. When God has a purpose and desire for you, it is done to completion. This operation of building and creating that is taking place is designed uniquely for you. Every part has a specific place in your life. God is strategically placing His timing and your works together. The assembly that is required in you represents His Hands over you.
