As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were. Romans 4:17
Do you have that dream or calling that God has given you but in the natural, there is nothing pointing to it being fulfilled? Have you had words spoken to you or over you that right now have no way of becoming reality outside of a move of God?
I am living that out right now. i take great comfort in the story of Abraham and the story of Joseph. They waited YEARS for fulfillment of a promise and dream that God Himself gave them. The best part is that they were faithful and saw what God promised come to past. Those things weren’t just something for them, they were promises to sustain a people and bless nations!
I’m a worship leader and feel called to be a worship pastor. Right now, that is not happening in my life. i’m working at just being faithful at what’s in my hand at this point. To be honest, my pride rages up from time to time. It’s a struggle. But i hold on to the fact that a calling is not for just one person, it’s for a group or a nation. i will not allow myself to disqualify me from the calling that is on me. i won’t allow my pride to consume the dream inside of me.
i’ve got a God to please, a calling to live out and a people to bless. i’ve just got to remain faithful and ready. Are you ready?
