Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!
We are ALL called. We ALL were created with Purpose and Destiny.
Do you know what you are called to do?
What is Gods call on your life?
1. Lead Worship and take Worship out to the Nations
2. Travel the World bringing the message of Gods Love to the Broken
3. Minister to abused, broken and hurting women.
4. Minister to Youth.
5. Write Worship Songs that not only minister to the Heart of God but lead people straight into His Presence.
THIS is what I know the call of God on my life is.
Now that you have defined what God's call on your life is there are a few things to be aware of.
1. DISTRACTION AND TEMPTATION ARE EVERYWHERE
The enemy would like nothing more than to distract you from Gods call on your life.
Do you think the enemy LIKES when you walk in Gods destiny for you?
When you are distracted from Gods Call on your life you are like a walking target for the enemy.
Distractions come in so many forms. It can come in the form of family, friends, your job, even ministry. Be aware.
Keep close to God and His heart and be constantly covering yourself in prayer.
If you begin to feel distractions coming in don't be afraid to ask for help. Ask for prayer.
Make sure you have people covering you in prayer, especially those of you who are in Ministry.
2. The enemy wants to bring discouragement.
A discouraged heart is an easy target as well.
Build yourself up in Gods Joy.
Be in the Word. Be in Worship.
For me, I have been in this place recently. A place of deep discouragement. I called my Pastor who asked me, "Sierra, where do you find your most joy in God?" I said, "Worship". He then challenged me that if that's where I find my joy in God why wasn't I pressing into Worship?
I know that for me when I Worship...God pulls me out of discouragement and I begin to feel Gods love for me as He encourages my Spirit with His Word, His love and His heart for me.
So, BE IN GOD'S WORD.
II Corinthians 4:7-9 – But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Galatians 6:9 – Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Do not let the enemy steal your joy!
As Christians, its easy to fall into temptations, distraction and discouragement. The enemy knows our weaknesses, the things that are easy to distract us with, etc. Be aware. Be watching.
Don't kid yourself by thinking your exempt.
The devil HATES a Man/Woman of God who is CONFIDENT in their call and walk with God.
Avoid temptation, be aware of things that can distract you and take your focus off of God, and use Gods Word and encourage yourself in the Lord.
