Time with God - December 29, 2015

Ephesians 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

God has something specific for you to do!

Do you see it in the verse? There are “good works which God prepared beforehand” so that you would walk in them. God has prepared a job just for you. But don’t let that make you nervous, because He has also prepared you just for that job!

“We are His workmanship”, it says. That word “workmanship” implies very meticulous, painstaking, highly skilled labour. God has meticulously, painstakingly designed your life-experiences with great skill in order to bring you to a place of readiness for His call on your life.

We readily accept that missionaries have a `call’ from God. And we want our pastor to feel called to his position. But sometimes when we are tradespeople or business people or university students or raising children—then we don’t see ourselves as having a calling.

But actually, every one of us has a calling from God, a specific way that He wants to use you, something He has designed you for. That is why every believer is given spiritual gifts. God may call you into a business setting with people that will never be exposed to organised church. How can you change the way you view your situation so that you are available for God’s calling on your life?
