Is there a call on your life from the LORD for something different than what you are doing?
Follow your heart.
We are entering the orifice of the last days on Planet Earth and God has a SPECIAL JOB for which He has prepared you. There are “giftings” in you that have never been released … waiting for you to fulfill the call of God on your life.
Here are some resources to help you:
Your enemy, the devil, does not want you to fulfill this call on your life. But I have good news for you: your friend, Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus, the Messiah) has provided everything you need to fulfill this call … and He is waiting for you to enlist today … waiting to help you every step along the way.
WARNING: Pursuing the call of God for your life is a war. It is a lifetime of battles. It is analogous to the battles King David experienced at various times in his life. For example, when David – the shepherd warrior – was hiding for his life from King Saul, he was also the enemy of the Philistines, and thereby prone to attack by them at any time. David had enemies from different sectors.
I want to ask you three (3) questions:
How many – and how great – are YOUR enemies?
How many – and how great – are YOUR extremely serious circumstances?
How many – and how great – are YOUR challenges for which you need a MIRACLE?
One secret of David's life, and what made him a great shepherd, was that no matter how tough the circumstances in his own life, he was usually willing to help others. He didn't realize it, but this quality of life service kept him under the anointing. Never lose the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is the anointing that breaks the yoke of the oppressor: your enemy, the devil.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isaiah 10:27)
David had been told while in hiding from King Saul that the Philistines were fighting against Keilah, and were robbing the threshing floors. Keilah was an Israelite city near the Philistine border. The threshing floors were not well defended, and therefore the farmers would be discouraged when their grain, which was to be used for both food and seed, was gone.
Therefore, David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go and attack these Philistines?” And the LORD said to David, “Go and attack the Philistines, and save Keilah.” But David's men in the “3-D Group” said to him, “Look, we are afraid here in Judah. How much more then if we go to Keilah against the armies of the Philistines?” Then david inquired of the LORD once again, and the LORD answered him and said, “Arise, go down to Keilah. For I will deliver the Philistines into your hand.”
So David and his men went to Keilah, fought with the Philistines, won a strong victory, took away their livestock, and saved the inhabitants of Keilah. (1 Samuel 23:1-5)
In your pursuit of your spiritual occupation – the call of God on your life – are you listening to men … or to God? Are you willing to leave your comfort zone to deliver others?
Do you have a problem or circumstance so big you don't think you can win? You know in your mind that God can win, but you're not convinced in your mind that He will win through you. Why? Is it because of:
A Satanic lie?
A feeling of unworthiness?
No assurance that God wants you to attack?
Conviction that some area of your life is not right with God?
Thinking your work for God is not of sufficient quality or quantity?
It will take to much effort or involvement for you to attack the problem?
After answering these questions, and surveying where you stand, then take the situation to God. Listen to God and He will give you direction. You may have to shut off your TV for a while, or go on a fast. Above all, you must be willing to do what He says … or don't bother asking. He knows ahead of time.
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
