Understanding Your Calling
For many are called, but few are chosen. – Matthew 22:14
You get a prophetic word. Maybe a dream. You have a vision where God calls you. You begin to see things that are impossible to do in your own strength. You see the end result but had no idea of the cost or what you would have to endure to get it done. Only God can do what He has shown you. It is your purpose. Your divine destiny. How do you respond? What’s your next step? This blog goes out to all the world changers and history makers. Those of you found in the process where your calling is made certain. Those of you enduring the tests of faithfulness and loyalty. Those of you not willing to give up but are willing to lay down your life to make His life in you hope for others who are far from God. Those of you willing to preach to 3 or 4 with the same passion as though you were preaching to the multitudes.
God has something greater for you. Do you trust Him? God our Creator has put in you His creative nature. Your calling requires creating new opportunities. As you develop intentional moments in your life God begins to fulfill the greater plan that He has for all of humanity. You must learn to look at things from His perspective. You are a puzzle piece in God’s mighty hands. In the process of discovering your calling God is already at work. God knows it all. He sees it all. He does things His way. We must realize that it isn’t going to happen how we want or when we want. Life with God is an adventure. His mercies are new every morning. He wants to do something with you everyday. Stop focusing on the destination and enjoy the journey. He longs for you to be His hands and feet. He longs to touch the broken and the hurting with your hands. He longs to speak with your lips. He longs to dream with your heart. He wants to have a vibrant relationship with you everyday.
He wants to give you the words of life to prophesy and to declare His promises to those who are spiritually dead and religiously complacent.
Many are simply just going through the ebbs and flow of life. You are playing it safe. Many are stuck in a mundane life where it is the same thing every single day. You wake up every morning, get dressed, go to work, come home. Turn on the TV. Log into Facebook. You take the kids to football practice. You go to church on Sundays. Still God is saying that He has something greater. He has a greater purpose for your life.
Maybe you have stepped out by faith and you failed. The only reason you failed was because you gave up. Maybe you limited God by putting a due date to what you wanted to do. Was it His appointed time for you? Or was He simply preparing you? Maybe God seemed distant. Maybe those around you didn’t recognize you or affirm your calling. Maybe they got jealous or didn’t believe God could use someone like you. Was is that you were seeking the approval of others and valuing what others thought instead of valuing what God was saying and seeking His approval?
Many have a promise land they are looking forward to. Many are crossing over the river out of Egypt. Transition is over for you says the Lord! Many are about to pass the test! The red sea has split. It may have seemed like forever. Just remember that God won’t take shortcuts in the process of preparing you for your purpose. Your character is being developed. You are learning to be honest. You are learning how to have integrity. You are learning to not be lazy. He is teaching you His ways. Reposition yourself. What you see now is temporary.

What God is doing on the inside of you right now is eternal.
Some of you are so discouraged and want to give up. You think you are too old. You are not! Abraham and Sarah were in their nineties. You may say your time has come and gone. God isn’t done using you. He won’t be done until the moment you die. As long as there is breath in your lungs God still has a plan. Christ in you is the hope of glory. No matter how dark it may seem around you. He is the light of the world and He is illuminating a path for you to follow.
Even if only one person gets saved it is worth it.
You may be at a place where you are waiting for the resources to do what God has called you to do. Embrace your limitations. You may not have the money but you have a mouth. You may not have a church to preach at but you have the ability to be faithful with the influence you have. Step out and do something with your gift. Money follows ministry. Ministering to those who are hungry and thirst causes money to multiply. It is all for His glory and the intentions of your heart are pure right? Humble yourself and serve the least of these.
It may not seem like a lot but if you touch one life then it is worth it. Your obedience has the power to alter the eternal destination of souls. Work with what you have. Build a team. Strengthen yourself in the Lord. Arise and shine! Your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
Many are called but few are chosen. He wants to be more than just your Savior. How will your respond to the call?
