Some of us have been living in the theme park of life, waiting for the great big plan of action we often refer to as 'the calling'. Wondering what God's plan is for you? What your calling is?
Trying to do it alone? won't work. Reggie Lee, in his book (On Higher Ground) describes it beautifully "Life without God is like living in a giant carousel".
Making your mind up then asking God to bless your plans? - Oh no! that's doing it backwards.
You are going about it all wrong. Putting God back into the picture is your 1st calling. Give Him your best; not what's left. "In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path" (Proverbs 3:6).
God uses you where you are at (spiritually, emotionally, physically, financially & geographically). Allow Him to use you daily and watch Him perform miracles in your life.
God's secret plan has been revealed to us. At the right time He will bring everything together under the authority of Christ, everything in Heaven and on earth. Because of Christ we have received an inheritance from God, for He chose us from the beginning, and all things happen just as He decided long ago. God's purpose was that we who were the first to trust in Christ should praise our glorious God. This we are reminded of in Ephesians 1 verses 9-12 (New Living Translation).
Still waiting on that "call"?
