Whether it is being a parent, a grandparent, serving in a ministry at church, being baptized, or reaching out to your co-workers in the name of Jesus, there is no one else who can do exactly what God has called you to do. Will you make excuses or will you be obedient? Trust God and watch Him do miracles in your life as well in those around you.
God’s Call on your Life
Each individual Christ-follower is being called to a specific task and purpose. Some people are called into the business world. Others are called into ministry. Some are led to teach the next generation. Whatever passions God has placed in your heart, whatever goals and dreams He's given you, whatever aspirations you stay up at night dreaming about – God has given you those for a reason, and He is going to use your life to further His kingdom.
God’s very first call to us is to salvation in Him through His Son, Jesus. He reveals Himself to us, called us to be His children, and now continues to call us throughout our lives.
ave you felt the call on your life? Have you responded to it? Though we may not always have the answers, all of us are being calling to something, and it’s our responsibility as Christians to choose to respond and to not ignore that calling.
What the Bible Says about our Calling in the Life of Moses
In Exodus 3-4, we read the story of God’s call on Moses’s life. He first called Him out of Egypt, and when God did so, He had a plan in mind for Moses all along. So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt (Exodus 3:10). Moses lived a life of comfort in Egypt, then was forced out because he killed an Egyptian… then God called him back there? Why did God do that?
He did it to accomplish the plans and purposes for His kingdom and His people, and He wanted to use Moses to accomplish them. That’s not to say that Moses didn’t have any hesitations or doubts. But Moses said, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt? (Exodus 3:11) Immediately, Moses responds with a question of how God could possibly use Him to help liberate God’s people from slavery. He made excuses. Yet, God still called Him and used Him to bring His name glory and to set His people free.
Will you trust God with your life?
We see in the life of Moses that God can use each one of us to accomplish His purposes and His plans. He won’t give us all of the answers – God will call us to one step at a time, a step taken in obedience and trust that God holds the future in His hands. Have you answered God’s call in your life or are you making excuses to not take the next step of obedience?
Doubts and fears may come, but when we make the choice to obey immediately, we reveal our spiritual maturity and the strength of our faith. When we choose to trust God, we are looking to Him as our Provider. Our fears and worries can subside because we have the God of the universe on our side. And it’s through our trust and obedience that we will see God do miracles in and through us.
