What is God's Call for You?

Have you struggled with trying to figure out what is Godís call for your life? Do you wonder if you are in the right career or if you are doing the right things? I remember vividly while in high school trying to figure out what to major in when I went to college. I was tormented with picking the wrong major. I desperately wanted to be in Godís will. I remember saying God if you will just put a note on my pillow then I will know what to do. Guess what, I never got the note on my pillow.

What I did not understand then, but understand better now is God can use me in whatever I do. God was not going to narrowly focus my career path. He wanted me to use the talents and gifts He gave me. He also wanted me to use my own decision making skills to pick a major that fit with my gifts. When I look back over my career and various jobs I can see how God used me in each job to glorify Him. Even the jobs I did not like very much God used me and blessed me with certain co-workers who helped to encourage me. To this day I still remain friends with co-workers that I have not seen for over 10 years, what a blessing.

So, what is Godís call for you? I can answer that question for you. Letís look at 1 Corinthians 10:31 ďSo, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.Ē Very simple, yet profound. Whatever you do, do for Godís glory. If it is wiping noses, changing diapers, listening to a moody teenager, or dealing with a difficult boss. Do it all for Godís glory. We donít have to make ourselves anxious trying to decide if we are following Godís call for our life. God wants us to glorify Him in everything we do, there is no wiggle room.

Can I encourage you to rest today in knowing God has you right where He wants you and He is in control of your situation? Can I also encourage you to consistently focus on glorifying God in words, speech, and deeds? Let your light shine and may people say of you I see Christ in her.

Godís call for your life is not as big a mystery as I made it out to be when I was a teenager. I also felt there was a big difference between full-time Christian work and not Christian work. The difference is man-made not made by God. God sees everything we do as sacred. So, whether you work in a church or not you are doing Godís work. God is working through you and in you.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Great article. When one realizes that everything we say or do is a reflection of who is in your heart. My prayer each morning is "make me a blessing to all I come in contact with this day that they may see YOU in me and be blessed"...Thank you for sharing. GOD BLESS YOU
