God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey him and the power to do what pleases him.
God lives within you
Within each of us is God’s spirit. We have all been given our own will power to decide what we do with ourselves in this life, but God desires for us to be led by his spirit. God’s purpose for us is to live as Jesus lived, to love as he has loved us and to glorify his name in all we do. If we are not following the guidance of the spirit then we cannot acheive these things.
Do you feed your spirit?
Are you spending time in God’s word daily? It is his words and guidance that empower us to feel the spirit within us. We should be making time each day to delve into his word and to spend time with him in prayer. If we have no relationship with our Father, how can we expect to be led by him?
Sometimes it feels like the tasks we are called to do are too much. We feel as if these things God is asking of us are better for someone else. God disagrees though, he has put a desire in each of us to accomplish different things in his name.
Our callings are all different, but they are all meant to glorify the name of our precious Lord. Homemakers create a foundation of faith for the next generation of believers. Preists and pastors guide entire congregations in God’s word and they provide a solid support system for Christians. Those who work outside of the home provide for the physical needs of their families. Teachers are with our children often more than we are, they teach them and encourage them daily.
Do not ever feel as if your “calling” is miniscule or not important because it is. God has given you a specific purpose in this life to lead, encourage and love others in a way that only YOU can! Maybe you feel inadequate or unable to accomplish what God has set out for you. Take courage in the Lord’s words that he is working in you so that you can fulfill his purpose!
So go out today and feed your spirit, so that you can feel God’s wonderful love and power working in you. Let the spirit of our Lord lead you to accomplish wonderful things in his name!
