“Always remember that God does not change His mind about the calling He has given you.”
By Jonathan Doctor
Before we were born God had a plan for our life.
According to the Word of God in Acts 17:26 He planned what we were
called to do, the time, the place and boundaries where we are to do it.
Our God, in His awesome Wisdom chose us to live in this day, He did not
choose St. Paul not St. Peter but you and I to be the last generation
before the Coming of the Lord, He has Graced us to bring in the
To me that is an awesome thought, and it is a
sobering responsibility, but at the same time it is a relief to know
that we do not have to trust in our own human, natural strength to do
it but by His Grace. God’s Grace, His abilities and gifts will empower
us as we go and step out into that Calling that He has Graced and
anointed us to do.
God ‘s Calling on our life will never be taken away,
God does not change His mind (Romans 11:29Amp), what He spoke will come
to pass, He declared the end from the beginning. He declared that we
would be His Glorious Church to show this world the Love of God. Jesus
has declared that He is building His Church and the gates of hell shall
not declare against His church.
This is good news to know, that as adversity and
adversaries show up on our way to the destination God has for us that
the adversities or mountains ahead are temporal, they are temporary,
they are changeable and movable. With this attitude and spirit of faith
we know that we are overcomers because God does not change His Word,
Name or Mind about us or our calling.
This is Good news to those who might have had or are
having small beginnings, knowing that adversity and circumstances
cannot change God’s mind, knowing this creates a NO QUIT attitude.
God’s plans Will come to pass.
God had orchestrated our lives, He has ordained our
steps and works according to Ephesians 2:10 and Psalms 37:23. Just like
Jesus knew where He came from and where He was going (John 8:14), we
too can and should know where we are going. By knowing where we came
from, we can look back and see God ordaining our steps in life, getting
us to this day and the days ahead.
Once someone has spent quality time with God,
intimate time in prayer, praying in the Spirit and continues to read
His Word and listen to the Voice of the Lord. They can develop
this knowing in their heart to the Call of God and to where they are
going. Jesus said that His sheep hear His voice and His sheep follow
Him, so as someone hears the Lord they must do what He says. We as
sheep do not want to get out from under our Shepherd’s Care.
This excites me about the days ahead, because in
knowing God’s call on my life and knowing in what direction He is
leading me, I have assurance that my Shepherd will not lead me astray
as I obey His voice.
We must stay faithful to the Call of God in the
small beginnings and in the adversities in our lives, as we do the Lord
will increase us and we will be given more, because we have proven our
faithfulness in the small.
Dr. Jerry Savelle says “Faithfulness is the #1
quality that God looks for in those He calls.” God is looking for some
people who are willing to fulfill His plan and Call on their lives.
