So recently I had a conversation with a choir friend about what it means when we are seeking God for an answer. I was praying for different things and during my meditations I was revealed that sometimes when we ask God “What’s the Answer?” we not only have to prepare for the answer but we must consider that He might tell us that “You are the Answer”.
If we want Change in our lives we have to purpose to BE the Change. Your circumstances don’t determine who you are and you can also change how you view your circumstances. If you see God removing key players that are stumbling blocks to progress in your life, you have to be prepared that as He removes wicked counselors out of your way, He is also paving a road for you to step up to that role that requires change through DIVINE INTERVENTION. My question to you today is, Are you prepared to BE the ANSWER?
Like Moses who had many excuses under the Sun to disqualify himself from being the Answer to God’s call for him to go before Pharaoh to set the Captives free from Evil Slavery, God may require you to be the answer that you seek. When I pondered on this, I started to freak out to be quite honest with you, because I understand Moses’ feelings about what God required of him. Despite that, I believe that Moses was groomed to be a leader since birth. He understood Egyptian politics because he was brought up and groomed as a young prince in the palace of the Egyptian Pharoah as a young man, so birth doesn’t determine destiny, it prepares you for it but it is OBEDIENCE that allows for your destiny to be fulfilled.
How obedient are you willing to be when You answer to the CALL in your life????
Remember that MANY are Called but Few are Chosen because what is required to fulfill destiny is:
FAITH, OBEDIENCE, HUMILITY, COURAGE, HOPE, LOVE and TOTAL TRUST in the LORD.
Think about these things and remember that you can try to disqualify yourself from the call in your life, but GOD doesn’t Call the QUALIFIED, HE Qualifies the CALLED. Walk in Obedience and answer to the Call in Your Life.
Yes, it goes without saying that you will face adversities as you pursue your calling but that’s what Faith is all about. You can’t walk by sight when you are required to walk by Faith. God always goes ahead of you…you walk through your red seas as He makes your enemies around you your footstool.
Look at Pharoah, He died a poor mans death as He tried to pursue the Children of Israel after they had reached the other side of the Red Sea. Egyptian Pharaohs were historically known to be buried with their treasures and servants in a pyramid tomb for their so-called life in the “After life”, but God dealt with Pharoah with a final blow in that in his pursuit to kill and bring back the Children of Israel back into slavery, God swallowed him up with his entire Army by closing up the Red Sea. Pharoah was left bankrupt in fortune since the Children of Israel were given the wealth of Silver and Gold during their exodus out of Egypt by their slave drivers as they were set free from Captivity. The end of Pharoah’s PRIDE and Hardened heart resulted in his dying a pitiful poor mans death with the Red Sea as His grave. Pharoah perished in his PRIDE as God gave Grace to Moses’ Humility.
Humility assures Victory and Pride will always FALL. Humility is Key when fulfilling the call in your life. Always remember that!
Scriptures to Meditate
So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”
Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
Glory Only in the Lord
26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.
The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor; Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “ God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.
A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.
Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
[ Blessings on Obedience ] “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.
2 Samuel 22:31
As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the LORD, mercy shall surround him.
Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust, And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.
