God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
I Peter 5:5-7 NKJV
My call– to seek Him, to find Him, to KNOW Him.
Never to control…
my feelings, my circumstances, my desires, my fate.
My call– to HOPE only in Him.
For He does not disappoint.
Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.
Psalms 42:5 NKJV
MY CALL– In the midst of the suffering… To PRAISE!
My call– to cry out to Him.
He hears our cry!
To surrender over to Him all feelings, emotions, desires, longings, every unmet need.
To recognize that He is and always will be my everything!
Though my world around me may be shaken. I am not shaken because my foundation is Him alone.
The Rock, never changing!
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
Hebrews 13:8 NKJV
My call– to recognize that I am human, but He is God.
To recognize my constant need for Him.
To know His grace, sufficient.
My call– to depend on Him.
I am weak but He is strong.
My call– to remember.
Everything in this world, even in me is fleeting, but He remains.
He is faithful!
In the midst of the trying times, the storm, the suffering.
My call– To walk with Him.
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:5-11 NKJV
He doesn’t only know us, but He can relate to each one, fully.
He gets us.
Yet loves us the same.
We have almost forgot that God is a Person, and, as such can be cultivated as any person can. God is a Person and in the deep of His mighty nature, He thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, desires, and suffers as any may.
A.W Tozer (The Pursuit of God)
My call– to allow Him to carry out His perfect work.
To participate in His life.
TO LIVE IS CHRIST, TO DIE IS GAIN.
My call– To believe.
He intercedes on our behalf.
My call– to come just as I am.
And just be!
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
Psalms 46:10 NKJV
He gets the final say!
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.
Revelation 1:8 NKJV
