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


If God does want me to go into corporate finance/investment banking, then I'm worried that I won't be able to cope mentally with the work pressure and having to be online 24/7.

Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody. Romans 12:18
 
 

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.

My pastor’s mantra is that what is worth something will always cost something. Following one’s calling seems like a huge stretch doing something that one can’t even fathom. Being called means to trust God and to achieve the impossible by trusting Him no matter what. This isn’t your three-step approach to life that brings instant gratification. Neither is it a hopeless, or even a reckless, spiritual pursuit. There is a predictable pattern in the process that the Bible lays out. As God leads, He will take you in stages promising that He will be with you. Following God wholeheartedly also means “His will, His bill,” God looks after you and provides for you. The story of Exodus is a good reminder and so is the miracle of feeding the multitude. However, along your journey of waiting on the Lord, it is painstakingly hard and that is to test and build up our patients. The good news is that no matter the waiting in the desert, a season is always marked by a start and by a definite end.


The first step in exploring a purpose in life starts with a question of “who am I really”? The quick answer is that we are no longer orphans but sons (children) and Ephesians 1:5 alludes to this, “His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ.” Believe it or not, it is easier said than done. Many find it difficult to see themselves as sons rather than orphans. We may not use the word “orphan”, but neither are we rooted in God’s perfect love. Before we can fully accept the truth of who we are, we need to discard our old identity. This can be facilitated in the form of self-help resources such as personality tests, coaching, and development programs. There are many profiling tests such as Myer & Briggs but also Christian spiritual assessment tests. These assessments can help you to take stock of yourself and at the same time, they can help uncover blind spots (Matthew 15:13-14), discover important character traits, or uncover dormant inclinations that are God’s gifts for you.


Early in my journey in living out my calling, I was fortunate to have done several personality tests, spiritual gifting surveys, and team compatibility tests. I also participated in the Leadership Development Program which assessed my leadership traits based on my personality profile. For a season in my life, I had a personal coach who helped me to develop and grow. I was able to take a good look at myself and learn how God had created me. Knowing oneself in the light of God’s creation helps not only to count the blessings but also strengthens our faith in God who never makes a mistake but freely gives all of the talents and personality traits we possess so that He can use us for His Kingdom one day.


Taking part in God’s work requires observation before commitment and participation. Chasing after God requires risk-taking, although it's more obedience rather than blindly taking on risks. While waiting on the Lord patiently and holding onto His promises, we mature, solidify, and are perfectly pruned to bear good fruits. As all the odds are stacked against us, we learn to be faithful, dependable, and trustworthy to God’s calling. Even if we are called contrarians or loners we seek only His approval rather than men. In the meantime, God never stops working behind the scenes in order to fulfill His promises. He battles on our behalf, provides for our daily needs, comforts us in times of despair, and assures us of a future (Jeremiah 29:11). However, there is a cost to discipleship. Trusting God means waiting on Him and being obedient regardless of what goes on in one’s life and taking shortcuts isn’t part of the deal.

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".
