“Your High Calling” – Charles F. Stanley
“Be sure to carry out the ministry the Lord gave you.” – Colossians 4:17
Do you find God must constantly prod you to keep growing in your faith? Or perhaps you’ve progressed in your relationship with Him, but there’s not much fruit and you wonder what’s going on?
If so, then it may be that the Lord has called you to serve Him in a specific way, but you’ve refused. It’s possible that you’re not using your gifts to honor Him, or you are ministering in areas that make you feel comfortable rather than really obeying what He’s asked you to do.
Friend, you may have your own goals, but remember, the highest, most wonderful purpose you can embrace is to faithfully carry out whatever He specifically created you to do (Ephesians 2:10). Those who follow Him in such a way encounter adversity, yes, but they also experience the power of the Holy Spirit – for guidance, faith, hope, and strength when doing the Father’s will.
That is life at its very best. So don’t settle for anything less. Be sure to carry out the ministry he gives you.
Lord, where would You have me serve You? What did You create me to do? Lead me – I will obey and glorify You, amen.
In His presence…discover all you were created for.
