As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. – Ephesians 4:1 (NIV)
You are a child of God and as His child, you’ve been called to do something for Him. God has placed desires and dreams in your heart and wants to help you accomplish them. But, have you noticed how easy it is to get sidetracked when it comes to our calling? Most of the time, it’s not intentional. We just get busy or sucked into the Netflix world and the next thing we know, we’ve totally forgotten about the things God has called us to do.
If we live our lives just for ourselves and we wait for our dreams to magically fulfill themselves, we will always be disappointed. We’ve got to be more intentional when it comes to our dreams. If we live our lives just for ourselves and look to others for fulfillment we will be disappointed. True fulfillment comes when we put our focus on our God-given calling.
The only thing that can bring you the peace and fulfillment you need is Jesus. He’s called you, so live a life that’s worthy of that calling. Choose to not be distracted by other things and choose instead to lean into Jesus. Trust Him to help you find the path that’s right for you. You’ve been called to great things!
