You are Called

You are Called......

You have been chosen. No matter how undervalued, lost, or confused you are. No matter what you have done or what has been done to you, you have been called by God to reach those around you.

I remember the darkest times in my lives were those that I felt useless. Like I was not contributing. The best times were mostly during my military service. I had purpose and direction. I was relied upon as part of a team. I had others I could rely on and trust should I ever need help.

I think we get stuck sometimes based on who we think we are in the eyes of those around us. We get caught up in the extreme narcissism of our culture and feel we our only validated by how other view us or when others respond to our accomplishments.

As men, often our validation and feelings of usefulness come from our family. We get caught thinking, my wife never notices all that I do for the family, or this family would fail if I was not here to hold it together.

I want to let you in on something. Your validation does not matter. Your perception of usefulness does not matter. The only place you will find fulfillment is in your calling in Christ and guess what, we are all called and I believe that you have also been chosen.

The great lie of the enemy is that you are useless or that you do not fit in, or that you are unqualified to be used by Christ to grow his church.

You are qualified because you have Christ in you. You don't have to do anything but listen to that spirit and move when he tells you to.

1 Corinthians 7:17

Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.

You are the church. You have been given a calling. Its the same as mine. Look for those situations that will inevitably be put in your path, listen to the spirit, and fulfill that great commission. You are extremely valuable. Don't let the enemy tell you anything different.
