For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. – Hebrews 6:10
A word of encouragement today:
I know I needed to hear it when I came across it in my bible time the other day. That has been one of my biggest struggles of late. Trying to figure out what my calling is leading me to and how I am supposed to be working for God’s kingdom. When we think of our calling we can often relegate this to some super mystical, only spiritual, experience. While that is a part of it, it’s not all of it. A calling on the life of the believer is worked out every day as they walk through each of the situations God has given them. God is not overlooking the work and love you show, for His name. That’s a chance we have constantly. Every moment of every day. How are you doing that?
Well, that is a piece of your calling.
God has given us these moments to live for His glory and as those moments string into days, and days into years, we begin to see the picture of His calling on our life. When we look back someday we will know what our calling is, because we will see the tapestry that God has woven our life into. We will see what the intention for those strong lines of red and black was. Or the continuing recurrence of green, or blue struggle. To ask me now what my calling is would be to ask me to guess at what the tapestry will look like. All I know is that it’s a picture of the image of God that He is weaving together. What is my calling? To glorify God and enjoy Him forever. God is not unjust. He is not overlooking even the smallest acts done in His name.
