Walk in Your Calling - Saturday, September 22nd 2012
1 Chronicles 15:2
Then David said, None ought to carry the ark of God but the Levites: for them hath the LORD chosen to carry the ark of God, and to minister unto him forever."
Do you know God has a special calling on your life? You can run from that calling, like Jonah, or you can embrace it, like David. Give yourself to the Lord and walk in your calling. Don't look at someone in their calling and grow envious. Your calling is special and unique to you, and only you can fill that role. How did David know the right path to his calling? He read and studied God's Word. David served God where God had him, even when it was difficult and dirty. He was open to receiving from others who also were passionate about God...and he got it right.
Perhaps you don't know what your calling is; that's okay, but allow God to show you your calling. Don't just sit around and wait for an answer. There is something we are all called to do and that is serve God. Serve Him right where He has you. At The Bridge, everyone (even pastors) started out cleaning toilets. It was in the midst of cleaning that many were called to be staff members, team leaders, deacons, elders and pastors. Friend, it's in the midst of faithful serving (obedience) that God will reveal your calling.
Life Lesson: God has a special calling and purpose for each person.
Thank You for loving me. Lord, help me to be set apart and think differently from the world. Please show me Your plan for my life and give me a boldness to walk in the unique call You have for my life. Lord, fill me with an indescribable joy. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
