Has God laid a calling on your heart?
Not a job . . . not a paycheck-sized-need . . . but a true calling?
If He has, you can rest assured of one thing: the devil will use every tool in his war chest to keep you from fulfilling it.
This, my friends, is why your faith has to be stronger than your circumstances. Your circumstances will always reflect the devil’s influence, but your faith . . . your faith will remind you that the Lord is mighty to overcome.
If you know you have a calling, and you feel that it is under attack or completely unattainable, let me encourage you to DIG IN.
Pursue that God-sized call with God and tell the Devil to get out of your way.
You’ve got work to do.
Romans 8:29-31 (MSG): God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made that decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name. After he called them by name, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And then, after getting them established, he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun. So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?
