I asked the question to a mature friend in Christ, “How will I know that God has called me to do something?” Her answer was, “What God has called you to do will be bigger than you. It will require you to look to God for guidance.”
Even though I believe I am getting closer, every day, I still believe God has called me to do greater things than I am doing now.
The key, I found, whether you are a man, woman or child – is obedience, submission and a willingness to say, “May it be done according to God’s will for my life.”
Mary, mother of Jesus, had the same heart for God and look what came from her faithfulness and obedience.
New International Version (NIV)
46 And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.” Please enjoy today’s worship song.
As we are in this season of Christmas open your heart to what God has ordained for your life. Stay close to God so that you can hear your instruction. In this coming New Year, decide to make this year a year of faith, obedience with a willingness to follow God, until your calling is revealed. Amen
I love you with an AMAZING LOVE. Rev. Marcia Davis
