Are You Called Into Something New?
Is God calling you into something new? A new job? A new opportunity for advancement? Going back to school? Finishing school? Moving to a new city. Moving to a new church? Maybe even moving into full time ministry? New things can stir up lots of feelings. You might even be hollering back "Woah! Wait a minute God...I don't know if I am ready!" Well...He's listening. He's waiting. He's ready. Are you?
Breaking out into something new can be scary. Moving forward when you don't see the path ahead can be downright intimidating. It can cause you to quake with fear and trembling. So....What do you do when God has called you into something new?
God tells us very clearly that if He has ordained you to do a certain thing that He will supply all your needs. Philippians 4:19 NLT
"And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus."
✔️ Supplies are covered. Everything will be fine."
Still freaking out? Here's another one. Colossians 3:13 NLT
"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done."
✔️ Don't Worry ~ Be Happy
Ok. Better...but...still not quite there. Here's another one.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NLT
"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me." If God has a purpose for you then He most definitely has a plan in place."
✔️ Purpose and a Plan
Ok. What else do you need. Oh yeah. The most important part. Faith. A big ole heaping mound of faith. Faith because God's got you covered. He has it all figured out. Stay in communication with Him and He will direct your feet. He will send you right where you need to go to get everything you'll need to do all that He's called you to do. Whew! You aren't going it alone. Yay! Hebrews 11:1 NLT
"Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see."
Walking into something new takes Faith. Faith that God's got your back. He has a plan. He has filled you with purpose. He will supply your needs even before you need them. He says not to worry so you'll do your darnest to remember not to worry. Faith. Faith because God's got you covered. Buckle up and get ready because your adventure is about to begin. WaHoo!
