#1 “How To Find God’s Calling in Our Life”.

Updated: Jan 25, 2022

How do I know that I am in God’s will and purpose? Is there more than the mundane of going to work, coming home, sleeping, and repeating?

Welcome to my blog series post entitled "Unveiling the Zeitgeist". This new 7-part series is about “How To Find God’s Calling in Our Life”. Many believers struggle with even believing that God has a specific purpose for their lives. Constantly in search of significance people second guess themselves whether they are in God’s calling or not. Wrong decisions and indecision haunt mental and spiritual life. This blog was produced together with a friend who struggled with the same issues. What is God’s purpose for my life? My heart is that by reading this blog, many feel encouraged to search for their own God-given calling. By discovering gaining valuable perspectives, I hope that they will take the leap in finding their purpose in life.

The Mundane Commute

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:10).

Knowing whether God has called you or not is born out of a personal relationship with the person who calls out and the person being called. I once heard that we are all called to glorify God throughout our lives. I would completely agree with this overarching goal of the Christian life, I would also add that there is an individual calling that requires consecration, equipping, confirmation and ordination. A life of humility, obedience, and being fully utilized for God’s Kingdom.

However, the belief in a Christian calling is not universally shared among all Christian denominations. There is division on this subject amongst Christian denominations. The God given, unique purpose of someone’s life is often seen as a Calvinistic interpretation of “predestination.” Thus, some Christians see this as a point of contention rather than seeing it as a specific attribute of God that His children are to rally behind. The church preaches the gospel of “salvation” followed by “discipleship training” before releasing them into church activities such as small groups and mission programs. The converted continues to serve the church and grows spiritually while pondering all along the meaning of life beyond the church walls. While the great commission of reaching nations is well underway through career missionaries, the longing to serve without being a parishioner remains unsolved. Preaching the purpose of God and living a life serving His Kingdom from the place of one’s unique advantages matched with unique assignments is not a mainstream message yet. Because of the reasons stated above and other reasons, people continue to long for an answer to a deep-seated question of meaning in life and the service on to God within one's personal vocations and other means.

What is undeniable is that if you study the role models in the bible, from Noah to Abraham to Jesus, they all serve God’s plan to restore His relationship with His creation, and therein lies the essence of a Christian calling. But what does that mean and what are we really looking for? We are reminded in Colossians 1:16 that “everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him.” This is so true when it comes to finding and fulfilling a calling. A calling may run in the family bloodline and in my own life, I have seen how my children naturally observe whatever their father is doing. This can be my vocational work, but it also could be my hobby. My kids observe me, and they pick up on things where I display passion and therefore my kids take a natural interest in that particular activity. Likewise, we are drawn to the works of our heavenly father. As God’s children, it would only be normal that we take interest in God’s agenda. We are drawn towards something that resonates and is naturally appealing. The end game is always joining God in His Kingdom work.

Serving God through one’s calling is exciting, significant, and purposeful under God’s grace. Although God is omnipotent, He chooses to lower himself to a level of utmost humility. The nativity tells that story. God always wishes to partner up with His creation, men. This is why we get to co-labor with God. So, co-laboring is a core aspect of the Christian faith. The rules of engagement with God may be fundamentally different than what we know from our training in the secular world, but the essence remains, there is an invitation to know Him, to be like Him, and to make Him known.

I hope to share in this series some of my individual experiences with biblical references about finding purpose in life.

Why Unveiling the Zeitgeist?


Many years ago, I had a vivid dream where God spoke these words to me “Awaken My Remnant”. Since then, I waited patiently to do just that. Not knowing whom to awaken, I waited on God’s next instructions. Then I wrote my first book, “Pursued By The Maker” which was published by Highbridge Publication and sold worldwide. To this day, I pray for the remnant and their awakening, and I continue to write and share my thoughts in a blog post series entitled "Unveiling the Zeitgeist".
