I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. — Ephesians 4:1 (NLT)
We get frustrated when we don’t hear God’s voice. We think that gets in the way of perceiving our calling. But God has given us scripture & community. If God always spoke to us audibly, we’d ignore what God is teaching others.
Knowing God’s will for us is simple:
- We’re called to help the hurting
- We’re called to love extravagantly
The more extravagant we are with love the less we waste.
1. Make sure we’re listening to the right people.
Who has the microphone in your life? Who do I need to stop listening to?
God is a creator, not an editor. Don’t get caught up in past mistakes. Keep moving forward. We’re going to change in how we used to be for how we could be.
Everyone wants to make a difference,
but no one wants to be different.
3. Create margin
We are often too busy. We need to quit the nonessentials. If we create margin, Jesus will stuff incredible things into it
