This picture is what I use to love to do when I was a child. I was either reading a word or thinking that I was reading one, as I would look at the pictures and speak, what I believed they were saying, to anyone who would listen. That is exactly the gift that God has given me. It is to see what God is showing me and say it to those that God has placed before me! I also would sing to the animals that would be outside until I was made to come in the house! This has also been a part of my calling… You too have something that you loved to do so much “that you could not,”NOT” do it. It is a part of who you were created to be!
WHAT WERE YOU BORN FOR?
God wants me to ask you today. “What is your greatest desire and what is it that you were just born to do? What brings delight to your heart and others are blessed when you are doing it?”
Then that just might be your calling. I truly believe that “working by the sweat of our brow” was part of the curse that Adam brought us under, but my brothers and sisters, Jesus delivered us from the curse!
I also believe that if we seek first the Kingdom, that Jesus said, that all things will be added to us! The Lord showed me once, that all of the birds and animal world just do what they are created to do, and He, in turn, feeds them and takes care of them and that man is the only one that thinks that they “know best,” how to get what they need in their own way!
He said, “If all were operating in that which He had called them too, that not only they would be blessed, but that in their calling, whatever that might be, that people that are on the receiving end would be blessed!” This is how the Kingdom of God operates.
AS YOU WALK IN YOUR CALLING YOU WILL BE FULFILLED
All who will walk in their calling will be fulfilled. Not all are preachers and singers. Some are called into government, or teaching,medicine, politics etc.. But whatever you desire and are driven to do it should be establishing the Kingdom of God in earth!
If you hate what you are doing and dread it everyday, then maybe, just maybe, you should find out what God called you to be when He placed you here in earth and then begin to work toward that! In that place is where many will be blessed and you will have joy and peace! You will have truly lived. It is time for the Body of Christ to get into alignment for that which has been established as their assignment! You will never be more happy and fulfilled than when you are doing what you are called to do. Jesus came to give you life and life abundantly! It is His plan for you!
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise and be against the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions, or whatever is trusted in).
Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?
And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life?
And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin. Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these.
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?
For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all. But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides,” Matthew 6:24-33 (AMP).
