Is who God called you to be more important than your training?
“What is the call of God on my life?” Is this a question you may have asked more than once or twice? The enemy wants you to be hindered if you don’t feel you know the answer. A great deal of your training is designed to help you understand how you have been gifted and to perfect the gift in you. Your life is the training ground. How you respond or don’t respond; what you feel or don’t feel; whether you can see God at work, etc.; all help you identify who you are in Christ. Your need to be able to say, “God has called me to _________”, can be a powerful weapon in the hands of the enemy. He can whisper in your ear and cause you to miss revelation and pass up answers to prayer because your focus is on completing that sentence. The important thing for you to do is gain from the training. If you keep your focus on God, in His timing, you will fill in the blank. The surprise is, you will come to see The Father filled in the blank before the foundation of the world. You just needed to learn, through your obedience, who God created you to be.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, as I go through life each day, continue to open my eyes so I can understand who I am, as You unfold Your Will for my life. You guide my footsteps by giving me the opportunity to choose You every day. When I choose You, I become who You created me to be. I know nothing happens by accident or coincidence. Thank You for stopping me from running so swiftly to identify Your call on my life that I create my own plan. Thank you for showing me I could never complete “my” plan for my life because that would mean I would miss Yours. I am as clay on the potter’s wheel and each day You are training me through my life interactions and conversations…
