Please note the title of this message. It’s not your calling from other people. It’s YOUR CALLING FROM GOD. Sometimes people go down the pathway of what other people have told them they are good at, what other people say they should do, what other people desire for them, what other people have strong opinions about, and/or what other people pressure them to do. Never mind God almighty and that He created us to love, serve, worship, and glorify Him, and that He has a life calling for us, and that the pathway He sets before us is the one we are to walk down regardless of what others think or say about the matter.
Friend, when it comes to our life calling, no matter what other people think and say, no matter their opinions, no matter their responses to us or lack thereof, make certain that you pray to the Lord, you wait on Him, you hear Him, you obey Him, and you walk down the pathway He has ordained for your life. Not them. But Him. For He is God! And we are to live for the Lord! Our life calling is the one He chooses for us, and this is the one we are to fulfill!
Certainly the Lord might use other people to help us figure out His calling for us and to help and encourage us in pursuing it. But we need to make certain we have sought Him and we have clarity that what we choose to pursue as our calling is HIS WILL for us. HIS WILL for HIS GLORY, AMEN!
Seek the Lord, friend. Seek and follow Him forth!
Dear Father, thank you for this message! I am still astounded at the life’s calling you have given me given my background of brokenness and how very lost I was. I thank you Father that you made clear to me the calling you have given me and that you have brought more and more clarity and details over time as you lead me forth in your will for my life.
Dear Lord, please do the same with all who read this message. Help them to know your calling for their lives. Help them to be confident in you and to surrender all to you and to be fully committed to fulfill your will for their lives. Help them to not fear man and bow down to other people and their opinions concerning their life’s calling. Help them to humble themselves and bow down before you and pursue you and your will for them with all their hearts, AMEN!
