2 Peter 1:10
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
Are you in a comfort zone?
Those who are involved in bodybuilding and weight training start off slow. As the muscle definition starts to form, they don’t stop. When the initial training program gets easy, and they find their rhythm; they are in a comfort zone. They don’t run out and start competing. They increase the intensity, so they develop more. They are excited about what they see and continue to work toward perfection.
So it is with your walk with the Lord. As you live your life in constant communion with God, you will begin to develop into the person He created you to be. You will get greater revelation and clarity. Don’t stop seeking, praying and studying. This is not the time for you to stop training and start trying to identify your “ultimate call” It is a trick of the enemy. If you stop training you be like the unsaved Israelites.
Romans 10: 2-3 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. (NKJ)
Stay the course and allow God to move you at His will and pace.
Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; (NKJ)
It is not enough to know what gifts God has given you, you also have to allow Him to develop those gifts so you can complete the tasks He has assigned to you.
Hebrews 13:20-25 Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 make you [a]complete in every good work to do His will, working in [b]you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.(NKJ)
Though you should not run ahead of God, you also can not rest on your laurels either. There’s so much more He has to do in you.
James 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I seek You every day to make sure that I am walking in Your perfect will for my life. I study and I wait because I know You have an appointed time to reveal the next thing You have ordained for me. You continue to show me who I am in You. I know, at the appointed time, I will be guided to fulfill Your purpose. I was in a hurry, but I am not anymore. Now, I only want to be diligent in my walk. I know You have ordered my footsteps and they will take me right into my destiny. Keep me close to You. Help me increase my commitment and communion with You. I will not stop because of what You have done with my life up to this point. Help me to keep training. I don’t want to get comfortable and take what You have done for granted or make the mistake of thinking You are done. I want my eyes wide open and my face set like flint, so I am sure to live the life You have designed for me…
