All the GLORY TO GOD JESUS, AND the HOLY SPIRIT.
Your calling...? How many of you really feel the anointing of God to go out and spared the gospel, like the apostles, evangelists and prophets, a specific calling?
If you are lucky enough to know what you’re calling is, good for you, don’t back down, stay humble, and turn every blow into victory, “not by strength, but trough MY SPIRIT says the Lord” (read you will find)
If you just know in your hart of harts, and their is a burning desire in you for a path of ministry, HOLD ON, Gods time is not ours, and believe you me, its not.
First put aside all pictures you have painted, and plans you have made, it ait goanna work!, trust me, you will always end up underestimating the gravity of Gods plans for your life, you might pitch with a teacup, while God has a tank full of blessings, how many times have you prayed, “oh Lord I would so love to do missionary work, or I would so love to do this and that, let me do it pretty please”
and it’s not wrong, but two years from now, your still praying, and wondering why nothing has happened ...yet?
Remember that all callings flow from a personal relationship with God, He will not compromise the time you spend alone with Him, if it means being to busy with the things of the Lord, rather than the Lord of the things, the calling will fit into the personal relationship you have with the Lord, not disrupting it, nor restricting it, but simply a over flowing cup of to much spirit for one human bean, that feeling of, I found this fountain of life, this grate big awesome God, and I would love to shout it from the mountain tops to the hole world, be still and know, that He is Lord, and that when the time does come to shout it out, it will be all the wait worth.
Your personal relationship is the routs of your tree, if it is steady, the tree will grow big, making shade for a lot of people.
Get rid of all the obstacles in your way, forgive, be forgiven, be positive, be patient, joyful, faithful, gentle and kind, does it sound familiar? Most of all TRUST HIM, even if you don’t understand.
Learn as much of the word as you possibly can, learn the history that go’s with it, soak it up like a sponge, living breathing eating the word of God, ask Him to explain His precious word to you, and I grantee you it will become more than a story, it will be a treasure chest of jewels worth more than the hole earth, their will come a day that you will be faced with hard questions, then Holy spirit will recall the word back to you, almost like an investment, the best one you can make.
Timing is also a key factor, you should listen very close to the Holy Spirit, to be in the right place, right time, giving the right word.
Be obedient! How many times did the Lord tell you to walk up to a stranger and say something to him or her, you think to yourself, “Lord did I hear right”? If it was from the Lord, and you kept quit, you might of just mist a opportunity to live out your calling for that moment.
A friend of this sinful world is a enemy to God, the more intense the message, the bigger the unsought, read in the Bible, the sinful world did not always except the truth with open arms, sometimes prophets and apostles where killed for speaking it, more often thrown into jail, and the people that are in the ministry will also tell you, the slightest step right or left, out of Gods will, can be fatal, be on your guard, put on the full armour of God, use the word as your sward, fight back, pray, pray, pray!
If you are serious about your calling, live it out in your work and play, be a opportunist, attend to those close to you, the Lord has send them over your way, minister them, making sure thy truly know, love and respect the Lord, take baby steps, and the Lord will add to that witch He has already given you!
Remember a small flame can make a big fire, and it’s the small twigs that keep the fire burning.
