No matter how excited and emphatic someone is, and no matter how much you may respect that person, no matter how respected or successful that person is, absolutely no matter what, if someone is convinced about your life’s calling and you are not sure this is from God Himself, please WAIT and LISTEN.
The Lord did not create other people to give and tell us our life’s calling. Oh, sure, He may well speak through others to help us onto the right path when it comes to the calling He has for our lives. But if we are not clear from praying to Him and reading the Bible and hearing Him speak to our hearts, we should not pursue the calling human beings are convinced belong to us. We need to seek and hear from and follow the Lord!
Should we call on others to pray for us? To encourage us? To love and support us as we seek and follow our calling from God? Absolutely! But we should not look to them as our gods. We have one true God. The Lord Jesus Christ!
Seek the Lord for your life’s calling, friend. And trust He will answer for His name and glory’s sake, AMEN!
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
