What is your calling?
by Finding You is finding me…
Do you ever get the feeling that you are called to something bigger or something special in your life but you haven’t figured out what your calling is yet? If you are feeling stuck right now you probably want to find the solution to having a breakthrough immediately.
Sometimes when we get called by God to bigger things we are expected to have all the answers for our friends and family members. This is one way we are blocked from our calling as it makes us feel limited when in actually fact we serve a limitless God.
We are expected to guarantee our calling along with an expected outcome. But you do not have to have all the answers first in order to pursue your call. You are called to Jesus and He is the answer.
Jesus calls us to one simple task summed up with two words “Follow Me.”
Jesus said in Matthew 4 verse 19 “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
It is okay to not have a detailed itinerary of why and what you will be doing as you walk in obedience to your calling. Jesus will reveal His plans for you step by step.
Proverbs 16:9 says:
“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.”
If you want to find out what you are called to do by God then you have to firstly spend time in God’s word. He is your breakthrough.
By reading your Bible you can examine your life and determine whether there is sin, rebellion or an error that’s blocking you from a breakthrough. You could be allowing distractions to distract you from your tasks at hand or you could be following the wrong advice instead of getting clarity from God’s word. Ask yourself whether or not you lack commitment to follow your calling. Do you have a habit, temptation or a desire that plagues your thoughts? Do you allow yourself to feel vulnerable instead of embracing what God wants to bring into your life?
Ask God today to give you the heart and strength to move forward today.
God’s word is a firm foundation for us to stand. He is forever faithful and true! After all He promises to prosper us and to give us hope and a future.
