FAITH CAPSULE: Are you available for God’s calling?
Until a man is stripped off of this world, to be decorated by the living word of God for declaring awesomeness of God over a man’s life will not be possible. Are you available for God’s calling? One that is called by God and set for God’s calling indeed and in truth will live life for the glory of God. When God calls a man, with no idea of God’s calling, challenges will come with many afflictions but deliverance is in the hand of God for the called one. Psalm 34:19 buttressed, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Have you been called or are you on a journey with no idea of the journey’s destination?
Joseph had a colorful life because of his father’s love for him above his brothers. Jacob, the father of Joseph testified his love for Joseph as stated in Genesis 37:3, “Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children because he was the son of his old age. Also, he made him a tunic of many colors.”
Are you experiencing a colorful life with no expectation of calling that is able to discolor your life but yet not able to terminate your deliverance to the glory of God? Genesis 37:23 records the stripping of Joseph unexpectedly from his brothers, “So it came to pass, when Joseph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the tunic of many colors that was on him. (Genesis 37:23)
God knows the agent of stripping you for God’s positioning of your life’s journey.
Pray for God’s established hand upon your life to live life for His glory.
When God calls to send you, self-control shall be out of your control.
When He called Joseph, he became a slave; he could no longer move at his own will or self-control. Joseph came under the authority which he could not control. Calling of God will lead called into an unknown route where learning is waiting for called one to know and become obedient to God. Jesus learned obedience by the things which He suffered that means ones that He calls is not exempt to be excused from having Jesus’ experience.
When God calls to send you, there will be the experience of an uncomfortable of a chain, pain, and iron which restricts one’s movement. When He sends you, input from you to control time and timing in your journey is not relevant because He alone will be in charge of controlling time.
The journey to get to the divine assignment is in the hand of God.
Just like Joseph, are you on a journey which destination is not known to you? As an acclaimed believer, remain the focus, knowing that same God that saw Joseph through to his divine assignment will also see you through without falling off.
Prayer for today: Ask from God for the strength to move you in His direction over your life.
