For many are called, but few are chosen. —Matthew 22:14

So many prophesy this or that, and it never comes true. The prophecy was not according to the Word of God. Someone gives a person a message, and he believes God sent it, when it is not according to the Word.

When God calls you out for His Work, He will take care of you. God will give you something to eat, and He will clothe you.

There are so many who run before they are sent. It is better for them that they do not go at all. Sometimes the devil uses tongues to upset things generally. The devil can speak in tongues, and your flesh can. Be careful of the prophecy given concerning your call. Let us try the spirits and not get into the flesh.

If God doesn't call you out, don't give up your work. Then you will have something to give. This mistake is made by many missionaries who go abroad. Some sell all they have, break up their homes, separate from their wives, and God has not called them.

Lord, it is Your call and Your voice I long
to obey, not the voice or
call of man. Amen.
