Everyone has a calling on their lives. Some followers of Jesus have only one calling while others have more than one calling. Everyone’s calling makes him or her special or unique in the eyes of God.
~”For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” ~Romans 11:29, ESV~
~”For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”~ Jeremiah 29:11, ESV~
The plans that God has for your life are special. The plans that God has for your life are exciting and thrilling. The plans that God has for your life are fulfilling in that they empower you to be a tool for the Holy Spirit of God to expand the Kingdom of God that is through His Son, Jesus Christ.
In spite of the plans that God has for your calling and life, there is also the enemy. The enemy can discourage you. The enemy can cause you to think and speak lies about yourself so that you constantly feel defeated in your calling. On the other hand, the enemy can be used by God to thrust you into your calling so that the fruits of the rewards that are given to you because of your choice to dive deep into your calling are great.
The battles that we, as followers of Christ, fight cannot be won without finishing the race that God has set for us, from the beginning to the end. This means that we must persevere forward if we are to be examples of Christ and be His hands and feet to those in the world, who are against your calling.
Do not let your co-workers make you feel defeated because the calling on your life is so great. Do not let your family members make you feel discouraged because the calling on your life is so great. You are special in the eyes of God. God wants you to push forward and to give birth to your calling and to your destiny. You were meant for greatness in the eyes of the Lord.
~”To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”~ 2 Thessalonians 1: 11-12, ESV~
Do not feel defeated today for feelings are temporary and convictions are eternal. Do not be discouraged, for every defeat that you face is one step closer to your victory that is Christ Jesus, the eternal Hope of your calling.
Your calling is the prize that will allow you to achieve your eternal Hope in Christ Jesus. Do not give up in spite of the struggles that you will face. Do not give up in spite of the persecutions that come forth. God is with you and He is for you, from the beginning to the end.
~”He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”~ Ecclesiastes 3:11, NIV~
May the Lord God bless you in the Hope of your calling today. God bless you!
