Called And Appointed
No matter how old we are we are still learning things about ourselves. For some of us we are learning how strong we really are, because of some things that we have had to overcome. For others we are learning that we can depend on God and He will come through for us. Life is a learning process and we never learn everything and we should always be in a constant state of learning.
The great thing about our progress is that The Lord knows what we need and what He has called us to do, and He has given us everything we need to accomplish the task at hand. The Scripture reminds us that, before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.
I encourage you today to remember that God knows you, and He knows what He has called you to do. Since God knows you and has called you from the foundation of the earth, you can be confident that He has equipped you for the things that He has called you to do. There will be challenges that you are going to have to face, but do not fret, God has already given you what you need to overcome the challenges that you face. Stand firm on you calling in life, and know that God’s calling is sure and He will walk with you every step of the way. I know that God has called me from the foundation of the earth, and I know that His calling on my life is sure.
Since I know that God has called me and appointed me I am sure, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for calling and equipping me to be your servant. Constantly remind me of my calling so I can be effective in your Kingdom. In Jesus Name Amen.
