encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
1 Thessalonians 2:12 NIV
When the Father brings you into His family, He opens a call in your life. It is up to you to find it out. He wants you to discover in Him your destiny. I pray for you. These callings are your fingerprint in life.
For me, I have discovered a few for my life. Prayer, discipling/growing people, presence of God, voice of God, father/pastor. These mark everything I do and all I am.
God then commissions you to do works. I work on unity in the kingdom. I work on developing solutions where others struggle. I work on family health. These commissions are done with the call.
When you accept the commisaion, He gifts you. He equips you. It may be through trial or a moment of supernatural empowerment. It may be through education. But He will equip you when you receive the call, accept the commission, and take action.
What is a piece of your call? Do not limit God to only call you to a limited and small life. Some tell me, “I want to preach.” Maybe declaring the goodness of God is a call in you. How has He commissioned that call? Through acts of mercy and kindness. Through a life of peace and character in business? Through speaking publicly? What other calls has He added? There are many ways to preach. Most involve 90% serving and 10% speaking. Show me your faith by your actions.
I pray for you to listen for the call and receive it with humility and a servant heart. Then I pray for you to see a commission, a place to serve and be you in the home of the local church, Christ’s design for occupying this world. And, I pray for you to step out in faith and be empowered from on high.
I pray for you. I love you. He is full of better and bigger days for you.
