Prayer: Father, Open My Understanding To Know My Calling And Give Me The Content To Stay Within

"For I say to every man among you, through The Grace given unto me, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according to the measure of faith which God has dealt to each man." Romans 12:3

Anyone who wants to be successful in life without having to struggle must understand why God put him there. Knowing your calling and staying within it is very crucial for you as a Child of God.

There are a variety of reasons why a child of God should be aware of and committed to his or her calling. "For I say, through the gift given unto me, to every man among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think," the Holy Spirit says in Romans 12:3, "but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith."

This passage demonstrates a grave error that recognizing one's calling might help one avoid. That error is exalting oneself over what is appropriate. For example, a teacher who sees himself as an Apostle would be in a lot of trouble. He or she will make mistakes, and the only way to be saved is to repent and stay as sober as possible inside The Call of God.

In addition, we are exposed to the various gifts supplied by the same Spirit of God in our Bible reading.

Regardless of the type of gift we are given, 1 Corinthians 12:7 states that "the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal." The objective of these contributions, according to Scripture, is to bless the Body of Christ. This is why you should never sell spiritual gifts as merchandise.

The Holy Spirit freely gives, and we must freely act in His talents without profiting. This could explain why, after being cleansed of leprosy, Elisha declined to accept the gifts presented by Naaman, the Syrian army leader (2 Kings 5:15-16).

Furthermore, we must not only recognize our calling, but also adhere to it as a matter of necessity. Those who refuse to stay true to their calling will become frustrated. The truth is that no calling is better than another, and none is worse (1 Corinthians 12:15-25). It is an inferiority complex that causes a Child of God to believe that he or she is ungifted, despite the fact that he or she can freely sing, witness, and give.

To be wealthy and still find it simple to distribute your wealth to meet people's needs, it takes a Divine calling. Ananias and Sapphira, like Barnabas, entered the ministry of giving when they were not called to it, and they met their demise (Acts 4:36-37, Acts 5:1-11). Your area of calling is whatever you are doing for God with ease. Recognize it and stay in it. God's blessings on you, Amen.
