For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29 NKJV
What does this verse of scripture mean? Can we live our lives anyway we want without consequences? Does it mean we are not responsible for our actions? Does it mean we cannot change our future or circumstances?
It means God created each of us with specific gifts and talents to be used for specific purposes. God has a specific plan for your life and mine. The Lord of heaven and earth designed you to meet a specific need in the Body of Christ.
I have a friend who shares the Lord with people wherever he goes. It is a very natural thing for him to do. He speaks Spanish. He is bi-cultural. God created him with specific gifts and talents to meet a specific need in a specific location at a specific point in time!
Can we hinder God’s plan for our lives? Yes, we can. If we trust God nothing can prevent Him from carrying out His good and perfect plan for our lives!
I saw a rainbow today. I was reminded of God’s promise. The Lord promised never to destroy the Earth with water again. God promised never to leave us or turn His back on us. Jesus promised to lead us and guide us in the way we should live!
I was reminded of promises God made specifically to me. The Lord called me His Servant. Jesus said He would enable me to speak for Him. Jesus said I would be His witness. The Lord said He would appoint me to the nations.
Did seeing a rainbow really stir up all those thoughts in my heart and mind? Yes, it did. I am unique among all the creatures God ever created. No one else is quite like me.
I get excited when I see ladybugs because they eat pests that can destroy a garden. I like hummingbirds because they remind me of the beauty of God’s creation. I like turtles because the Lord protects the meek and humble of this fallen world.
I write because God gave me a unique perspective a vivid imagination and the gift of gab.
No one else is quite like you. You can be a servant of Almighty God today. Jesus will enable you to speak for Him. You can be His witness. You can go to the nations and testify of God’s mercy and grace. You can tell people how much Jesus loves them!
God created you with specific gifts and talents to meet a specific need in the Body of Christ at a specific time in His-story!
Nothing can prevent Jesus from bring about His perfect will for your life. The spiritual gifts Jesus gave you and His calling on your life are irrevocable!
