Our Father God, bless us today to hear from you and understand your desire in our life. Open our spiritual ears to listen from you and know that we know. In the name of Jesus Christ and through Him, amen!
The above photo shows a part of an ancient trading place in Konya, today’s central Turkey. It was a great cross road for all international traders of that time. It is truly a wonderful place and an amazing building that speaks tons about those old trading roads making us think our walk “on the road to God’s purpose in our life”.
“Then he said, ‘The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will, and see the Just One, and hear the voice of His mouth. For you will be His witness to all men of what you have seen and heard. And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.’
This scene happened along the road to Damascus (a cross road and trading road of its time) and it is a life changing moment for Saul, known as Paul.
Paul had just received a specific road/path to walk on and it is so clearly stated to him on the above verse: “For you will be His witness to all men of what you have seen and heard.”
Paul knew already what his mission was. For sure he had no clue of the details of the mission and the end of it. He stepped in faith.
Believers believe that the Lord has a purpose in their life higher than going to the office, raising their kids or taking care their elder parents. They believe it but they have no clue how to listen from God and if they truly listen from Him. They think that it is from Satan as it is not a life change experience as happened to Paul.
Lord is not a God of confusion but of peace and power, of a sound mind. He speaks to each of us in His own way. Remember that we have a personal relationship with Him. Make sure that you hear from Him about your calling than judging or comparing with what happens to others. Calling for specific ministry has no connection of how old you are as a Christian. There is no measure of comparison. It is just you and God. Each one is unique.
Better to take your time and listen. No rush is necessary. The world will keep going around. Better to know for sure than put yourself and others in risk.
I do not know to whom this post is addressed but I wish you blessings and peace in your heart. God is in control! Remember we are not the keeper of the universe. Amen!
