What is God Calling Me To Do… What is My Purpose?

Two weeks ago, I began the first steps in following God’s calling on my life for me to be in full-time ministry.

My husband and I both felt that God is now telling us that I should not continue teaching middle school, so that I can devote my time and energy to working for God.

Walking away from the safe and secure job of teaching to go into ministry is very challenging to my faith and trust in God.

As I have started down this exciting path of solely following God’s calling with no back up plan and no security blanket, here are some things I have learned.

These 3 things you should also consider if you are in pursuit of your God-given purpose…

 

1. Spend Time With God

It is amazing to me how quickly I forget to seek God’s presence every day.

I fall into the lie that I am too busy to have prayer time and Bible study before I start my day. I’m busy being with people, busy running errands.

Busy, but not in tune with God’s voice through His word nor are we trusting Him with our requests/needs.

God tells us He will prosper us and give us good success, even going as far as saying, “Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

But notice the command in the previous verse – God tells the people of Israel to make sure His word does not depart from their mouths, to meditate on it day and night (Joshua 1:8-9).

Here’s the thing I have found over the last 2 weeks – if I focus on one hour with God in the morning, then everything else falls into place, including my schedule, ministry and even finances.

This was a habit that Jesus himself had, as we can see in Mark 1:35-36. He was getting up early in the morning, while it was still dark, to spend the first few hours of the day with His Father.

Look at how strong His healing and preaching ministry was, and, in the same way, your calling will be greatly affected by how much time you spend with God.

Let Him set your day and He will prepare and bless you in the calling He has given you.
