TOPIC: You’re ‘Called…by His Marvellous Grace’

SCRIPTURE: But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace. Then it pleased him – Galatians 1:15 NLT

In Scripture you will notice that God usually called busy people. Moses the shepherd was busy tending his flock. Gideon the farmer was busy harvesting his crop. Peter and John the fishermen were busy mending their nets. But there was something inside each of them that responded to God’s call. With God, availability matters more than ability. Imagine for a moment a farm worker named Saul out looking for his father’s lost mules, and returning home anointed to be Israel’s first king (see 1 Samuel 9-10). There is no telling what God will do with you! So, be faithful and nurture the dream He put in your heart, and when the time is right, He will set everything in place.

The psalmist said, ‘Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart’ (Psalm 37:4 NIV). Don’t be impatient. If God put the desire into your heart, He will provide everything needed to bring it to pass. Jesus said, ‘Human effort accomplishes nothing…the…words I have spoken to you are spirit and life’ (John 6:63 NLT). So, water your vision with God’s Word, and spend time with Him in prayer. And if anyone tries to come between you and what God has called you to do, tell them, ‘Sorry, I have to go. I’m already spoken for. My destiny is too important to miss.’

Don’t waste another day struggling with God’s call on your life; just surrender to Him! He didn’t call you because of your great track record, great intellect, or great gift. The Bible says, ‘Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound’ (Romans 5:20 KJV). You’re ‘called…by his marvellous grace’.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Nehemiah 10-11, Romans 9:1-15
