“His lord said to him, ‘Well [done], good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.”
In extension of yesterday’s published post “On the road to…” (http://wp.me/p1gGAh-m6), the above scripture speaks to us of how we progress in our calling.
As we said already, believers can be confused whether they listen from God about their calling or it is their own thoughts and desires.
Another issue is that even when they know that they know what their calling is, they feel that all will happen in one moment. The ministry will flourish …on the spot. And if does not happen likewise, they get disappointed.
It does not work like this! God in his great wisdom knows us well! He teaches us step by step. It is like school. We go from class to class and obviously we have some tests and exams in order to move from level to level.
Sometimes before we go out and teach or preach, we have to go as simple participants in a home group and learn more, participate in prayer groups in the church, participate in fellowship and keep reading the word of God. Believers with a calling do not need to feel offended due to humble start or worrying that they heard wrongly from God!
The Lord started this calling/ministry, He is capable to complete it as planned. He just needs our willingness and participation!
This is one of those cases that “we are still and know that He is God!”
