(Part 1)

God can speak to you at any time. He uses His prophets in the church or the Bible, His written word. But here is a vital question: Are you ready to pay the cost and give up what is necessary to fulfill His direction and call on your life?

Ps. 34:19; Ps. 37:23; Luke 1:26-38; John 15:16; Phil. 1:6; Phil. 3:7-14.
Make it a goal this week to listen to the new directions in which God is leading you. Be open to the steps God wants you to take so that His desires for you will be fulfilled.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father God, in the name of Jesus, the name above all names, thank You for the calling on my life. Thank You for empowering me to take the steps I must take. Amen.

(Part 2)

Pursuing God's calling on your life will require spending time with Him in prayer, reading His Word and following His directions. In His Word you will discover how faithful, powerful and involved He can be in His call on your life.

Matt. 6:33; 1 Thess. 5:24; 1 Tim. 6:12; Heb. 10:23; Heb. 11:6; James 5:16.
Instead of being overwhelmed by the call of God, draw strength from the assurances and promises in His Word that will help you to fulfill your destiny in Christ.
Father God, in the name of Jesus, help me focus on You and Your faithfulness and power as I walk out Your calling on my life. Let me seek You each and every day, and learn to walk with boldness and greater confidence in You and Your purpose for me. Amen
