If I’m a part of the story you are telling
I need to be courageous about my calling
My calling to play the part assigned to the character you formed for me
Why are we so afraid to step out of the margin?
Why are we so afraid to dream with You, write the vision and make it plain even for the next 50 years
We have listened to the beguiling lie of the one who robbed us of purpose back in Eden
That tomorrow is not sure, That tomorrow is not secured
And my big question to question that is:
EVEN IN YOU?
If we serve and live in the maker, king and the most sovereign being of the entire universe, then why are we so afraid?
Why do we question our security in him?
Why do we question our safety in him?
Why do we question the surety of our calling in him?
For me, I’m dusting my broom and thereby dusting my room
I’m dusting my broom: and I’m reconsidering purpose
I’m dusting this room with an already dusted broom: and I’m becoming courageous in my calling
If the maker and the one who holds the universe in his hands is my FATHER, then why should I be afraid that he wouldn’t fulfill his duties in taking care of me?
Of some things I’m sure, Fear and Courage don’t walk on the same road; nevertheless the same direction
Fear takes us down; Courage takes us up
My question for you: what births the courage we need to live successfully with?
What births it?
It is obviously not fear
Courage has a voice dripping with purpose
And please listen closely because it says
“I believe that I am indestructible until my work on earth is done”
That’s the picture of someone with a clear idea of his purpose and calling
If we are a part of the story He’s telling,
we need to be courageous about our calling
Our calling to play the part assigned to the character He has formed for us.
- What dreams and visions concerning the future has God been showing you or putting on your heart. Write them down and make it plain remembering that it’s really not your ‘abilities’ but your ‘availability’ that qualifies you to fulfill God’s plan and purpose for your life.
- What really are you afraid of? What fears wake you up in the middle of the night reminding you of the lie that ‘you are on your own in this world’? Get into God’s Word (The Bible), it’s in there you can know and experience how much God loves you. Remember, perfect love casts out (throws away) all fear. Here are some scriptures about purpose and God’s surety. You can start from here and check them out. Psalms 57:2, Psalms 138:8, Ephesians 2:10, Proverbs 19:21, Proverbs 20:5, Jeremiah 29:11-13, Romans 8: 28, Romans 9: 20- 21, Ephesians 1: 11-12, Romans 5:5.
