My name is Paul and I have been chosen by Jesus Christ to be his apostle, by the calling and destined purpose of God. Colossians 1:1
Hi, my name is Sandy and I’ve been chosen by Jesus Christ to be His disciple, by the calling and designed purpose of God. He has instructed me to sit in His presence and listen to His voice and not everyone else’s. He always sends me confirmation to what He asks of me, but I willingly obey regardless of what it makes me look like or sound like to anyone else.
You see, each and everyone of us have been called to discipleship. Our added gifting of prophet, apostle, pastor, evangelist or teacher (Ephesians 4:11) is just that, added. But we’re all disciples or followers of Jesus. That means we follow His commands final command to us–Go and I’ll be with you always.
Never allow what others think, keep you from being who God called you to be. Stop trying to be like other people, to imitate the gift that’s in them. You have been chosen for a specific task. The success of your assignment hinges on your ability to obey the direct instructions of God.
Are you listening? If you don’t take time to listen, you will never hear. If you never hear, you will continue on the same path you’re on, possibly going in the wrong direction. Find a quiet place, turn off the noise and distractions, worship the Lord and give Him thanks, and with no agenda, no prayer requests, just wait for Him to draw near and speak to your spirit. It will be the most productive time of your entire day.
Have fun being you!
