When God Calls

The call of God is always very clear and distinct to an individual, and with His purpose, always. The Creator of this universe has had something in play for you from before the moment of birth. 

Look intently at these words spoken to Jeremiah, “he word of the Lord came to me: I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born. I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:4-5 HCSB. This statement of hope and direction was specifically written to you and to me, even the idea of being a prophet, one who proclaims the Good News of God to a broken world. Yes, we ARE to be prophets for Jesus instructed us, “Then Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20. These directives are meant for everyone claiming the Name of Jesus as Savior and Lord. We cannot escape this directive.

Every person whose life belongs to His is empowered by His Spirit to fulfill this plan of action, and He has equipped us with the spiritual gifts, hearts, abilities, personalities, and experiences to accomplish your purpose, His plans for your life. WE must set aside time and effort in order to discover these purposes, based on how God shaped our being. Our time and life belong to HIm in order to accomplish His purposes.

Because you are a child of the King, He will call and instruct you for His purposes planned for you and His voice can be heard, “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying: Who should I send?  Who will go for Us? I said: Here I am. Send me.” Isaiah 6:8. No, His voice is wee and small nor quiet, God’s voice is clear and distinct from every other sound you will hear. When He calls, listen and go where He sends. Remember, God planned your life to accomplish His purpose before you were created in yur mother/s womb.

Jesus is Lord.
