TOPIC: FOCUS ON YOUR CALLING
TEXT: Genesis 1:28
In this amazing year God has anointed us to be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth. That is to say to add value to ourselves and environment (9:19). Just like the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread. Adam got a dose of that anointing; ‘Be fruitful, and multiply’. In other words, ‘Discover the purpose for which I made you and give yourself fully to it’. The Bible declares in Heb 3:1-12 that the call of a believer is heavenly and not earthly. That is to be born of the Spirit of God which is the bedrock of our assignment. Can you reflect for some minutes how great sports men and women come to the spotlight? It’s what they were meant to do that they did that brought them there. They know it and take pleasure in it.
People who fulfill their calling exude an excitement and a connection to their gift that transcends fame. Most of them have simply found a way to get paid for doing something they love. Money never replaces purpose. When you find the thing you’d gladly do for free – there’s a good chance you’ve found your calling and focus.You were made in the image of God, with a built-in drive to create. Everyone who’s aware of their calling is in the process of giving birth to something. It may seem obvious that those who are songwriters, artists, and poets are giving birth to their dreams. You may be called to give birth to a business, or invent a technical device that will benefit others, or discover a cure for some disease, or find new systems of efficiency in the workplace. Your worry may be, ‘what if I try and fail?’ The real loser is the one who never attempts to fly with the wings God gave them. So, enter into His presence and be in constant dialogue with the Holy Spirit for direction, guidance and discretion.
MEDITATION: Gen 9:1,7
