FOLLOWING GOD AND HIS CALL ON YOUR LIFE!

FOLLOWING GOD AND HIS CALL ON YOUR LIFE!

Separation will oftentimes be part of your development as a Christian. Before you can take on something new, the Lord may ask you to let go of something you already have. Obedience is meant by saying goodbye to relationships and things dear to your heart. A life you’ve known… left behind. Strong faith will enable you to say yes to what the Lord commands.

Moving ahead in the mist of uncertainty can be another aspect of following the Lord. Unwavering trust in your heavenly Father will enable you to answer the Divine call wholeheartedly – even though specific details aren’t given.
Following God requires living by obedient faith. That means: trusting the Holy Spirit to be your guide; when you don’t see how all the pieces fit together (John 16:13-15); believing that God always works for your good and His glory (Romans 8:28); and having a desire to please your Father.

Question: Will you be ready when He calls?

When I Wanna Be Somebody else…

When I wanna be somebody else sometimes, thinking there are far bigger and better things than what I do, I listen to my heart. I was created in this particular way for the particular things I do. It is truly the work of Satan that tries to distract me, make me look away at what others are doing. Some of us drive luxury cars. Some of us are Buy-Here-Pay-Here people.  Some women wear designer brands while some shop bargains. We are told how to look, what kind of wife or girlfriend we are, and what success really is…all by the media & society. There are many 4 letter words in this crazy world, but Love is the only one that changes everything, holding truth, holding future.

We are all created unique for what God has called us to do on an individual level for His Great Plan, called Life. Its difficult and can be really upsetting and confusing. Our faith is really tried in this chaotic world. Let us remember who we are, embrace our personal talents, and instead of covet…just love it.

I love this quote below:

“Remember: Satan is a cruel manipulator. He desires for God’s girls to get ensnared and distracted by competing and comparing. The more we look around and jockey for a position that’s better than the girl standing next to us, the less we remember God’s assignment for us. And that’s exactly what the enemy wants.

Our calling is never to “one up” the next girl. It is to raise up the name of Jesus and live His truths in an authentic way.”Lysa TerKeurst
