Do you know what GOD’s Calling is??

I firmly believe we have all been put here for a reason, God did not just create us to eat the forbidden fruit, and get on with our sinful lives, and completely disregard everything Hestands for  and everything He is!

So why are we here? Why did He create me? And why did He create YOU!!! Have you asked yourself that recently? I ask myself that question ALL the time, even this morning I asked myself what is my purpose in life, so that’s why this blog is about God’s calling on my life.

I have yet to figure this one out, but it is now my mission to do so. I don’t have a clue what He wants me to do, but I know deep down He wants to use me in some way or other. I surrender myself to Him right now and believe that whatever He wants I will find out soon enough.

I am sure He has told me before, but I just have not been listening to Him. I intend to make more of an effort in my life to listen to Him and hear Him when He speaks.

He is ever present in our lives, in everything we see He is there we just don’t realise it. We take HIM for granted. When last have you gone outside and taken a good look outside?? Like really looked at your surroundings?? Do yourself a favour and go outside today, look at the grass for instance who else BUT GOD could have created every blade of grass to perfection? Look at the flowers the many different kinds, He created every flower to be unique and a masterpiece, look at the details of the flowers, can you make that?…. sure you can but it will be synthetic and fake… is that the same as God’s creation NO its not.  He put us on this earth with all these things to enjoy. My question is how do I SAY thank you GOD, how do I show Him MY gratitude for all this? I think it is to live the life He wants for you the life He had planned for you long before you were even conceived. Your blueprint is with GOD and it is magnificent, All you have to do is listen to Him and hear His voice

I have found some scriptures that are reference to the CALLING of the Lord on your life. The only time you will understand and realize what his purpose for you is to spend time with Him, take the time talk to Him, He wants so badly for all of us to have fellowship with Him and have a relationship with Him where we can turn to Him not only in times of need but in ALL times, whether we happy or sad turn to Him. As a friend told me yesterday when I was feeling a little down…. “HE loves you, you KNOW”. Just those few words brought tears to my eyes.

Romans 11:29: For God’s Gifts and his CALL can never be withdrawn

Ephesians 4:1: Live a life worthy of the calling you have received

Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 

Jeremiah 29:12-13: “Then when you call upon Me and come and pray to Me, I will hear you. When you search for Me, You will find Me; if you seek Me with all your heart

Ephesians 2:10: ” For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” 

There are so many scriptures that refer to the calling of GOD, let us listen.

  1. Today folks think that being born again encompasses all that God has for man, apart from the “ in the sweet, by and by” life to come, In truth there is a whole world of living that follows as consequence of being born again. This new kind of life into which we are born is explored about as much as the new world before Christopher Columbus did the heavy lifting of expanding our horizons; which is to say this world is not explored at all. As glorious as the born again experience is, it only gains us entrance into a life where the miraculous is to be as commonplace as the air one breathes moment by moment.

    It’s a challenge to find a more important question in all of lift than the one you’ve asked. The consequences of not getting the answer right are more far-reaching than any of us can imagine. We are not the first to ponder those matters; and what others have said in contemplation of such introspections is quite revealing. One that comes to mind is the expression: the God size void in every man. That void is where God desired to dwell cause the heavens, nor the heaven of heavens can contain him according scripture; that covers the universe and beyond, yet there’s room sufficient for him in man, his image. We are called to inherit the glory of the Lord Jesus; it comes to us with the gift of God himself. Rise and shine for your light is come and the glory that belongs God’s rises upon you. He instructs to do the things that Jesus did, just the way he did them in three years of miracle working because they were ordained before the world for your glory; to bring you renown in the earth and cause you to shine like lights. The glory of God is what he gives to us. Tough to give us himself and not his glory, his kingdom, his mind, his Spirit, his power…..all things are our; whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are ours and we are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s. We have been given the mind of Christ to know these things that are given to us. Which the carnal man cannot see, hear, understand, nor even speak; it is unlawful for him: against the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

    2 Thessalonians 2:14—Hereunto he called you by our gospel, to obtain of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Christ the glory of God, and the glory of man are not mutually exclusive. Isaiah 46:1—To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like: (Answer: …as he is, so are we). Isaiah 40:18— 18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? (Answer: …..In the likeness of man made he them, male and female…He is to be compared to his image…that’s why we have mirrors, we want to see what we are like: we are God’s mirror “image” and his word is our mirror for comparison to what we are like…made in his likeness). For thousand of years men have been making images of gods. God has turned the tables and created his own image, when he finished it was man. He lives, breathes, thinks, and does the works of God in Christ.

    2 Corinthians v.5—Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God: (v.2—to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: a building of God, an house not made with hands….. v.2-4 that mortality might be swallowed up of life while living breathing walking around.)

    None of this makes any sense to us because we really haven’t taken seriously the words of Jesus. They that believe in me. All the works that I do they shall do also, and the signs that shall identify them are summary listed. We don’t really see ourselves of whom he said if you believe, all things are possible doing these things; so the purpose for which we are called keeps eluding us.

  2. Nice posting about God’s purpose for our lives. I enjoyed reading it — you are so right that we take God for granted quite a lot! We go about our business without even considering the beauty of God’s leaves on the trees or the colors of His sunset. He gives the wondrous rain to both the righteous and the wicked — even the wicked have cause to thank Him! The more we really think about it, the more we see that we have so many multitudes of things to thank Him for — and that’s why He’s the purpose of our lives, because we owe Him everything, including the everlasting love He showed us on the cross. He’s of infinite value, so He and His purposes are the greatest things we can aspire to and live for. I hope that God brings you to find the specific purpose you have in Him, but it appears that you are already praising Him in your life’s purpose to love Him!

  3. Thank you for the comments. Much appreciated,

  4. I like this post. I have wanted to write for many years now, and have prayed for an opening in which to use my writing for God’s glory. I started my blog six months ago, with the intention of gaining a following for a manuscript I am working on. I soon found my writing evolving into faith-based articles and faith-based short stories and away from my manuscript journey. I am still working on my manuscript, but have taken my blog writing in a direction that will reach souls for Christ and at the same time be a blessing to my brothers and sisters in Christ that I have met through our blogs. It took quite a long time, but He guided the journey until now I feel as if, for this moment anyway, I am doing just what He wants me to do.
