“Why did God create me?”
“What is my purpose here on earth?”
At some point in life, these are questions we all ask ourselves.
Well let me assure you of something—you have been saved for a purpose. God didn’t take you to heaven the moment He saved you because He has something for you t¬o do here on earth.
God wants to show you through the ministry of the Holy Spirit what His specific plan is for your life—your calling. A calling is one of the gifts God has provided to every believer, no exceptions.
Let me suggest a few ways you can get started finding the will and the calling of God for your life.
One way is simply to decide you are going to grow in Christ. Decide that nothing is going to keep you out of God’s Word and off of your knees in prayer. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal Himself to you and show you the gifts God has given you and the ways He wants you to use them. Totally consecrate yourself to God, and His good will track you down (see Romans 12:1–2).
Also, do what is before you to do until God shows you the next step. Get busy for God, and you won’t have to find your calling. Your calling will find you, because the Holy Spirit knows where you live!
The future may not be completely clear right now, but keep at it. One of the key components of the spiritual growth process is identifying your calling. When you discover your calling, you’ll know it, because you will be more alive than you ever were before. God’s grace will have set you free to become all that you were created to be.
