Greetings My Friends;
A lot of people are called by God to do something. It is his plan for you and if you don't follow the call you will miss out on the blessings of the plan. There are a number of situations that come up in a person's life that can hinder them if they let it.
The first situation is that you don't believe that God could possibly use you, so you ignore that quiet little voice in your heart. Too bad. What you may not realize is that it matters what God thinks, and if he thinks you are the one for the job, who do you suppose is right? God has always chosen most of his servants from the unlikely to the dregs of society. So if you're just average, why not you?
Another thing that happens is, we fail to see things from the spiritual outlook. If God wants you to do something, He will give you what you need to do the job, including a helper called the Holy Spirit. If you keep in touch with the Word and the Holy Spirit, you will do things without even realizing you are being guided. Things will just fall into place, and as you complete a step, the next step pops up. Just relax, talk to and listen to the Holy Spirit, and enjoy the ride.
Sometimes when friends, coworkers, and especially family members find out what you are doing, you'll probably get a lot of strong, negative reactions. They will have a hard time accepting what you are doing because they see you as just a regular person who they have known for a long time. Remember that Jesus faced the same thing. People even in his own family did not believe in him until after His resurrection. People saw Him not as the Messiah, but the carpenters son.
I hate to keep mentioning problems, but here goes. As you go about doing what you are led to do, especially at first, you may fall back into the carnal way of seeing and thinking. I think it would be foolish for most people to think that it couldn't happen to them. Maybe things are going slower, are not looking as good as we think. Just let God handle it, He is in charge, and He knows how it should progress.
One of the biggest problems is satan. He is always there trying to discourage you and will try to put doubt in your mind. He will say things like, do you really think God would use someone like you? He will surely bring up your past in order to condemn you. Just tell him you are not that person because of God's saving grace. You have to tell him that he has no power over you in Jesus name, and ignore him. Pray or pick up the word and he will take off like a bat out of you know where. Praise the Lord!
I tell you the things because most of it has happened to me, and I want you to know you are not alone. Just hang in there and do what your heart tells you.
God Bless You And Remember
Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation;
"Oh God in Heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive Your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen"
