Because we know that this extraordinary day is just ahead, we pray for you all the time-pray that our God will make you fit for what he's called you to be, pray that he'll fill your good ideas and acts of faith with his own energy so that it all amounts to something. If your life honors the name of Jesus, he will honor you. Grace is behind and through all of this, our God giving himself freely, the Master, Jesus Christ, giving himself freely.
A while ago I was at a service where this Bible verse was the focus of the sermon. It was during a time when I was on the cusp of realising and admitting what God wants me to do. During this period every service I attended seem to be almost written for me personally. Pretty much every time I walked into a Church or attended a religious event it seemed as though God was sending me a clear message.
God has a plan and a calling for each of us, and for everyone that calling is going to be different. It is only through following His plans that we will ever truly be happy. We can seem happy and present a happy face to the world, we can even think and believe that we are happy doing our own thing. But in following God's will in our lives there will be a peace and happiness that we will not find anywhere else.
I am ready to follow this plan in my life and I am looking forward to the path that lies ahead of me. I know this will not always be easy but it will always be with Him by my side. I wrote a blog not long ago about a song that I love called moving forward and the words sum up a lot in my life as it is currently.
I stand before, a road that will lead,
Into the unknown. At least unknown to me.
I want to go, but I'm paralysed with fear.
Fear of a choise, where the outcome isn't clear.
No, but still I go.
And I take, the first step of a million more.
And I'll make mistakes I've never made before.
But at least I'm moving forward.
I am standing at the beginning of a new road, I have no idea where the end is but I know what I must do to start walking it. I am frightened of taking this path because it will be the first time that I am out of control in my life and I don't know where I will end up. But I am taking the first step and there are going to be many many more to come in the future. But at least I'm moving forward.
We are all worthy of the calling God has for us, He makes us worthy of it. We need to learn to be obedient and loving, once we start trying to live our lives as God would want us to there is no danger of being unworthy. Don;t fear being what God wants you to be, because He will always be there and He will never let you down.
