A Heart to Hear Your Calling and See Your Purpose

image

You have a calling and purpose in this life.

God has prepared good works for you to walk out.

If you don’t find out what they are, you will spend your life going ‘to and fro’ looking for ‘your place.’ You will be restless, frustrated, angry, joyless and without divine peace. You will try to be like those around you to fit in, and doing the good works God has prepared for others to walk out.

You will never feel that you are in the right place, and you will be filled with insecurity. You may begin to look at the lives of others and compare yourself to them, and your heart will turn green with envy because they are so peaceful and joyful and content and: You. Are. Not.

You will not walk out your calling and purpose in this life which includes the prepared ‘good works’ from God unless you have:

But you say, “where is God, I can’t see Him, I can’t hear Him? He must not exist.”

It is our sin that separates us from God. Sin is all the bad things we do and say, and we try to hide from God in the darkness ashamed because we know we do not deserve His love…not after all thing things we have done. The wages of sin is death, and that is what you feel like: the walking dead, physically alive but spiritually dead.

"And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

We have a pulse-less heart unable to know and love God, we have deaf ears and blinded eyes.

Beloved, it doesn’t have to be this way. God is real, and He has forGIVEN us, and helps us to walk out the ‘good works’ by giving us:

  • His Word (the Bible): to teach, reprove and train us in righteousness
  • Jesus Christ: it is by His blood we can draw near to God the Father
  • His Spirit: guiding us and sanctifying us in truth sealing us until the day of redemption

How do you have divine peace? How do you have joy? How do you have the security that gives you rest?

You must be born again of the Spirit of God.

Confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. Come to Jesus Christ, his cleansing blood will heal you. His love has covered all your sins and they are no more.

His Spirit will wash you and renew you, and you will be born again: given a new heart to love God, a pure heart so that you can see God, and you will hear a voice tell you the way to walk. You will have daily COMMUN{ion} with God resulting in deep fellowship and security. Then you will see the ‘prepared good works’ God has for you to walk in and others will see the divine peace, joy that rests on you and you will fulfill your calling and purpose: To. Glorify. God.

God is calling you…to give you a new heart for you to hear and see Him, He does this every day…is today your day of salvation? You can continue to survive in this world or be revived

I’m praying for you dear reader…God is real and He loves you!

    I so enjoy reading your posts…you have a gift of clearly writing and outlaying the not so easy to explain phenomenons of God’s ways.

    This topic has been in my presence as of lately as well. At times it can become overwhelmingly sorrowful (and a bit frustrating) to see our loved ones go through this life unaware of their purpose, living in vain, deceit and for now, “blissful” ignorance.

    Will you be continuing this topic? I ask because what comes next is even more trying than finding the purpose; walking in it can be awfully lonely and not at all how one might imagine it. The peace and joy are always present but that doesn’t mean there will not be trials, refining and perseverance issues. I think this is where a lot of ministries fail. They call the sinners to repentance and then leave them feeling like all will be coming up roses when in fact it usually gets a whole lot harder. Of course we know that God has begun a good work in us and will not forsake us until the return of Messiah but for those who may not be so rooted in their faith flounder, especially in our instant gratification world.

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful response! You are so right! This path to life enters through a narrow gate and there are few who find it, and it’s heart wrenching as you mentioned to watch ‘our loved ones go through this life unaware of their purpose…”
      You are also right about being transparent in what it means to share in the ‘sufferings of Christ’ and that it’s not a ‘bed of roses’ but more like a crown of thorns! We must share how it is harder because of the refinement (sanctification) that occurs once we say we will follow Jesus. We must follow Jesus not only to the cross but also the crucifixion, that is crucifying of ourselves and this hurts. Yes…the instant gratification world tempts us to discontentment and impatience causing us to exchange our inheritance for a ‘bowl of soup’ like Esau. ;-) I’m so thankful for your stirring thoughts! You are loved my sister!

      “For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake…” Philippians 1:29

      “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20
