“It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”
Php 2:13 NIV

THIS YEAR RECOGNIZE YOUR CALLING

By recognizing and fulfilling your God-given assignment in life, you free yourself from a sense of failure and are able to stop worrying about what others think. Why? Because your self-worth no longer depends on people, but on God! However, you must do these three things: (1) Be honest about your gifts, and recognize your limitations. Don’t go through life as a stranger to yourself. Honestly assess your strengths and weaknesses; ask the hard questions and be willing to live with the answers, even if it means letting some things go. Michael Novak writes, “God knows what’s in us for He put it there. And He intends us to do something with it.” Each of us has been given a calling in life, and happiness belongs to those who find and fulfill that calling. (2) Allow God to work on you. Sometimes an amateur potter limits the potential of clay by seeing it only as a flowerpot. But a master potter sees much more—he or she knows what it can become. Watch them; they don’t merely impose a shape on it, they release the shape that’s already within. And that’s what God does with us. (3) Recognize your source. Fulfilling your life’s assignment begins with identifying the desires God has placed within you. “It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” Who’s at work within you? God! Where do your desires come from? God! Where do your abilities come from? God! So make knowing God and walking in step with Him be your highest priority this year.

Kayton Hosket Philippians 1:6 by kgdoodles on Etsy: Reflection:
1. Do you know your purpose in this life?
2. Have you asked God about his purpose for you?
3. Has he revealed it you? If so are you walking in the way he has made for you?
4. Are you afraid of your calling? If so have you prayed about it?
Happy Wednesday. I hope all of you are doing well. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by my blog. God bless you. As you take the time, to read this post, I would like for you all to reflect on all that God has done for you and to also answer the questions above in a journal, out loud or any way you can. Pray about it. God hears our requests for they are like an incense unto him. May God help us this hear to hear his voice clearly and may we be obedient to his voice.  “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” -John 10:27. Be Blessed and Encouraged.
