Usually when someone hears or sees the word, “called” they immediately think of “ministry,” “preaching,” and “teaching.” I understand why. Our present day cultural connects the word “calling” to church and church work. However, Biblically speaking, it’s far wider than ministry. Here’s the truth: EVERYONE IS BORN WITH A CALLING.
It’s obvious that some people are called to the ministry, but the rest of us are called to something different. Some people are actually CALLED into the medical field to be doctors, nurses, physician assistants, etc. Some are CALLED into the field of law and were always meant to be lawyers, judges, paralegals or what have you. Some are CALLED into entertainment and were destined to be actors, actresses, producers, directors, script writers and so on. Some are CALLED into the business world. They were born to be entrepreneurs. They were purposed by God to be innovators and sources of ideas, goods and services. And the list goes on and on.
But the question is, “What are YOU called to do?” That is something you have to discover because God has already decided it. Yes, you have to search that out and make it your priority to know what He has predetermined for your life.
- It’s not ok to do what your parents want you to do
- It’s not ok to do what society thinks you should do and
- It’s even not ok to do what you want to do.
It’s only HEAVENLY ACCEPTABLE to do what God has called you to do!
Please, I beg you by the mercies of God, don’t live a substitute life. It’s a life you live in place of what Jesus has created you to do. Let’s be honest. If you live a substitute life, you will never be totally satisfied and you will have missed God’s best for you. Beyond that, the people you were meant to influence and help will not have been served and positively affected by you.
Find Your Why
God the Father wants to bring you into DIVINE ALIGNMENT. He doesn’t want you to miss your reason and your season. It’s His perfect will for you to walk in your predetermined purpose for being. Believe it or not, there’s a WHY behind your existence. FIND THAT WHY and live out your destiny to the glory of God.
Here’s the ultimate reason why this is so crucial. God is NOT going to change His mind about what He called you to do! This is what He said through the prophet Malachi, “For I am the Lord, I do not change…” (Malachi 3:6) Then the Apostle Paul comes along and he says this emphatic statement, “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” (Romans 11:29)
My beloved friend, these two scriptures CANNOT be broken. You must do what God has called you to do. He is patient. He is kind. But He is still a judge. And certain things will be decided for you or against you BASED on your obedience or disobedience to His will for your life.
I’m going to end with this. May the fear of the Lord be your portion and may you summon the courage to ask the Lord, “What have YOU called ME to do?” Then listen and look for His answer. The revelation will come in various ways. He will confirm it over and over again. Then He will give you the grace to OBEY and fulfill your call…whatever it may be.
I love you to life and THIS IS THE WORD OF THE LORD TO YOU! I hear the Lord say, “For some of you, this is not the first or second time you’ve heard this message. This is not the first or second time you’ve heard Me calling you into obedience. Heed the call. Take this seriously and I will bless you in your obedience.” Wow! Thank you Jesus! Amen.
