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

I have prayed for years for my calling. How can I hear God’s calling over my life? How can I know what he wants me to do? Why haven’t I heard an answer?

For everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power, and everything is for His glory. Romans 11:36
 
 

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 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 a leap in finding their purpose in life.

I am not sure what has happened in your past relationship with God. I am bringing this up so that I can comment on the source of the problem. The issue could be in multiple areas at the same time including being unable to discern God’s voice in the mitts of various conflicting noises over your life. It could also be that God has spoken but you haven’t been able to discern His voice but that can be addressed separately. Another reason may be that God already spoke, but you have delayed your obedience which is another form of disobedience. There could be other reasons such as timing, rejecting an invitation, I have listed them below.

What’s more important is that, even though you may be experiencing dissatisfaction at work, God’s sovereignty and control over your life hasn’t ended. Regardless of what your emotions tell you, you are in God’s perfect will. What could explain the unhappiness paired with the short stints at each job may be the result of God actually calling you! Have you ever pondered on that? His invitation to join His work to the uninitiated may at first result in a crisis of faith. This is when forces within you collide. On one hand, your spirit recognizes God's invitation to walk on water, whilst your faculty of mind is conditioned to be self-reliant and therefore resists. The resistance finds comfort in reasoning. Rationality trumps faith when it is allowed to do so but God is peaceful, and He doesn’t contradict himself.


The motives of God. What is God after when we are looking for calling in Him?


God is mysterious in some sense but always consistent, orderly, and reliable. We know from the bible that God prepares His people during the wandering across the desert. God led 2 million Israelite vagabonds (aka nomads) composed of men, women, children, and the elderly. In other words, they were untrained for battle, unfit for the journey (women and kids), and incapable of providing for themselves in a desolate place. Israelites were slaves and thus their mentality was that they were willing to trade freedom against shelter and food. God not only provided for all the needs of the Israelites such as heavenly manna, water springing out of a rock, a pillar of cloud sheltering them from the heat of the sun, and a pillar of flames to warm them from the cold of the night. God wasn’t just meeting the basic needs of his people, He did far more than that. He deals with all the impurity and inequities while changing the heart from a slave (orphan) to heirs (sons) in His Kingdom (Romans 6:13). Throughout the long journey, God increased Israelite’s faith towards Him by solidifying their identity as His people, even to a degree that God punished the faithless from entering Canaan. God did so knowingly what awaited the Israelites across the Jordan River. Through this story, we know that God collaborates with us ever after we have discovered our own identity. He doesn’t expect us to be perfect but willing to be used as God’s vessel.


God’s timing is a Kairos Moment. God’s timeline is non-sequential but opportune. Therefore, it brings with it its importance. Patience is the flip side of the same coin. Transitioning including job changes is a stressful decision but they don’t have to be when one’s faith is grounded in trust in the good and willing God. When restlessness takes over, one loses the ability to discern spiritual matters and fear engulfs you. The noise and the fear can manifest itself in many forms. People pleasing or living up to the expectations of others is a serious matter that pulls you away from the faith and draws you into seeing reality only.


Frustration is merely signage on the road that points towards a direction. What I mean is that it is okay to be frustrated with the circumstances or even with God for that matter. God can manage your frustration but what’s more important is your perspective shifts towards God. Paul’s second letter to Corinth reiterates this. So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Why Unveiling the Zeitgeist?

Aaron_104469.jpg

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".
