At the beginning of this year, I, my hubby and my toddler son took time to leave Vancouver and visit my home country, Indonesia. We struggled with lots of pressures, mentally, financially, spiritually at that time. I prayed and prayed and somehow I felt that we’ll find answers in Indonesia. And I’m glad we did =)
I felt like our trip was meant to resharpen our vision.
In the middle of storms, confusions, and terrors, we often get our visions blurry. I’m not only talking about visions in ministry and spiritual calling only, but also, our visions in marriage, in the marketplace, and even our study. We need to take a break from all of the busyness and really take time to resharpen our vision. To find again our convictions and heart for all the things we are doing and what we’re fighting for.
It’s a fundamental step that we need to take at the beginning of this year because God is preparing us for a great battle leading to the big harvest. And we’ll need to pay the price for realizing the visions that God puts in our hearts. And it’s not gonna be easy!
SPIRITUAL CALLING REVEALED
I believe this year to be a significant year for the revealing and resharpening of the spiritual calling of His children. God is preparing us to be someone with a certain role and talents since the day we were born (Jeremiah 1:5). Each and every one of us has a purpose and is a significant part of God’s plan to dominate the world. That’s why it’s very important for us to understand our callings and to live a purposeful life.
Walking in our calling doesn’t refer to what we do every Sundays or at church, but it’s about being an impact to our surroundings every day of our lives. It’s not only about praying for people but also real actions that we do so that other people can feel the love of God through us.
“Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble”
(2 Peter 1:10)
Let’s walk boldly in our callings,
