Be Bold, Answer The Call

The only one that has to know you’re called is YOU!

Think of your calling as God picking up the phone and direct-dialing you.  If he picked up the phone and dialed your number, He would ask for you and no one else.  If you weren’t there to answer the phone God wouldn’t share your business with someone else.  He would wait until you were there to answer the phone and receive the message personally.

God isn’t searching for others to answer your calling, He’s searching for you.  He’s searching for you to be bold and answer the call. Your calling belongs to you and no one else.  You don’t have to wait for someone else to come around in order for you to begin doing what God has called you to do.  You don’t have to wait for others to recognize you in order to be who God has called you to be.  Once you know your calling, go after it.  The only one who needs to know & understand your calling is YOU.  Will you be bold enough to answer the call?

Joshua 1:9 (NLT) “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 (MSG)

“…It’s all yours. All your life, no one will be able to hold out against you. In the same way I was with Moses, I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you. Strength! Courage! You are going to lead this people to inherit the land that I promised to give their ancestors. Give it everything you have, heart and soul. Make sure you carry out The Revelation that Moses commanded you, every bit of it. Don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you’re going. And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.”

Happy Saturday!

    Ooh my this morning I had a conversation with a very dear one on this topic sometimes we are crippled with fear we think, it’s up to someone else to do the work because we are not mature enough in the word. In our conversation I came to understand that in him and with him we have every answer to life but it’s just difficult along the line because we are paying attention to what we want and not what he wants for us.It takes the “Holy Spirit”and grace to see that so let’s believe we all have a calling and ask him what our calling is. When we tell him we want to work for him by his grace and Holy Spirit he will give us the strength and in the process guide us in all other areas of our lives we need progression. Let’s ask for the Holy Spirit to come and stay within us and it will help us know, do and conquer all our fears!!!

      Amen! It all starts with Him. When we ask for His help, wisdom and direction He will give it to us. He said let whoever desires wisdom, ask for it and it will be given. When we learn that everything we need is in God, we will no longer operate in fear. Great message Roz!

Drop me a line!
