I hear many people say they are not called by God. They know they are alive and well but don’t understand the connection of being alive and the purpose of God. As long as you are alive, God has you here for a reason and that reason is not just to live for yourself but for God and fulfil His will. I am not saying you have to quit your job and become an evangelist, though for some few, that may be the case. The calling of God is right there where you are as a professional, a businessman, house wife, lawyer or student. Each day God will give you opportunity to tell of His grace, love and power and point people to the cross and the church of Christ.
You are exactly what the world needs. Someone just like you to show them the incredible love of God. Your assignment on the earth is not to make all the money and travel all the exotic places. It is to glorify God through the money you make and to share His incredible love in all places in the world, exotic or ordinary. You are called, blessed, anointed, gifted, talented, skilled, appointed and setup to influence your world for Jesus.
SCRIPTURE READING: PSALM 150:1-6 Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven! Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness! Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horn; praise him with the lyre and harp! Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes! Praise him with a clash of cymbals; praise him with loud clanging cymbals. Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord!
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly father I believe I have been called by You. I am blessed, talented and skilled to influence the world for Jesus. I choose to show the world the incredible love of God. Amen
