One of the most difficult obstacles that most Christians face is recognizing the call of God on their lives.
Being able to discern what God has called you to accomplish is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have.
Most individuals have spent the majority of their lives doing activities that are not in line with God's call on their lives, and as a result, no matter how successful they are in life, they do not find fulfillment.
You could be wealthy and successful, but it does not imply you are fulfilling the call of God on your life. The fact that you experience fulfillment is one of the signs that you are doing what God has called you to accomplish. This form of fulfillment comes not from the money you earn, but from the fact that what you're doing makes your heart happy.
Today's essay will look at 6 ways a believer can discover his or her calling and how to go about doing so. The following are some of the 6 ways a person can figure out what his or her life's calling is:
1. Divine intervention
This supernatural insight is one of the most reliable methods to recognize the call on your life. You can receive the massage in a divine visitation through a dream or vision. God can also communicate with you through a prophet. God can physically send you a sign to let you know you've been chosen. This does not, however, happen to everyone. In the Bible, there are various examples of persons who were called in this way. They include King David, who was summoned by the prophet Samuel, King Saul, Apostle Paul's vision of Christ, and many others.
2. People in your immediate vicinity
Another reliable method of determining your call is to ask individuals around you. You may have a specific ability that you are unaware of or have never given much thought to, but others have noticed. When numerous people tell you the same thing and there is a lot of consistency, it's time to believe it's a call from God in your life and you need to act on it.
3. Things that Make You Excited
Is there anything in the church that gives you a lot of joy and fulfillment when you do it? You want to do these things again and over again, and you never get tired of them. Perhaps you simply feel evangelism to be your calling, and it excites you when others find it tough. It could be anything from singing to assisting people. Determine what truly thrills you, and you'll be well on your way to determining your calling.
4. Examine your abilities.
One thing to keep in mind is that while abilities are given at birth, gifts are given when a person is reborn. Everyone has a gift, but only those who have been born again have the ability to use it. Are you able to recognize your talent? You most likely have one or more. Maybe God is calling you to be a preacher or a teacher because you are good at public speaking. You may have a gift for singing, and God may be calling you to be a worshipper. Identify your gift first, and then you'll be able to comprehend how it relates to your calling in life.
5. Circumstances or Experiences in Life
God will sometimes enable you to go through difficult periods in your life so that you can understand what he has called you to do. You could be fighting a life-threatening sickness, and if God heals you, you'll be able to help others heal as well. It could even be severe emotional trauma, but if you get over it, you'll see that God was preparing you and even providing you the ability to help others in similar situations. When you are confronted with a difficult situation, be willing to learn and understand what God is trying to teach you.
6. God's General Service
Is there anything you're doing that you're not doing to serve God? Many people make the mistake of sitting and doing nothing in the hopes that God will reveal their calling to them. You have to start somewhere, and you have to start little. Don't wait to be great before serving God in that position. Don't wait to become a well-known preacher if all you do in the temple of God is sit. It could even be cleaning the church or ushering in your local church. You'll notice that the more you do this, the clearer the call of God on your life will become.
Above all else, if you want to comprehend God's will and purpose for your life, make sure you pray. Prayer can do everything, thus every believer should learn to pray.
I hope you find this article to be extremely useful in answering your question on how to recognize God's call on your life.
