INTRODUCTION TO THIS NEW SERIES..
Its been a while since I shared some posts via this blog, but I am back and have a lot to share with you all so thank you for patience, prayers and love very much appreciated.
I am starting off with a series titled ‘Stepping out in your calling’ this originates from one of the prayer conference calls I had with the ladies (The prayer conference call takes place every Tuesday evening from 8:30pm – 10:00pm) I discussed about positioning in the kingdom to walk in your purpose and called office by God. One of the ladies suggested I put together a series laying out the fundamentals that can help encourage some of you to step out to do the work of God. Many of you want to do the work of God but are fearful and not bold enough to take that leap of faith to step out, it is as though you are unsure of yourself and not positioned to be used by God.
I prayed over this and God downloaded a list of areas I should discuss to help encourage you all, as I once experienced this ‘fear’ of stepping out I can relate to you and pray what I share in this series will indeed help someone get the confidence and push to step out in faith to do what they are called to do in the kingdom. Quite often when speaking to women there is a pattern in what they say, most are those who are in the 9-5 routine and feel they cannot step out due to fear of various reasons such as failure, finances, lack of self confidence, low level of faith, unsure about what they are called to do and how to do it.
But you see when you hear God speak and you know it is Him, and you surrender all to Him there is great fulfilment and passion when your desires match up to what God calls you to do to help build the kingdom. It is no longer the burden of working for a failing system questioning things. I will use myself for example when God first called me I was unsure about myself to go into ministry to help women, for some time fear and doubts crept in and I was sitting on what God had deposited in me. But once I overcame that hurdle all my desires went from the plans I had for myself, to the plans God had for me and I began to walk in purpose with a deep passion to help women I lived ministry and still do, my day to day is all about ministry and other commitments and work all work around that. It says in Psalms 37:4 ‘Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.’ It really is a blessing to us to have the bible the blueprint, our guide, our source to help us understand and apply what is written to live better lives in accordance to what God wants for us.
But God will ensure that once He has called you He alone will elevate you. You shouldn’t be scared or worried to take that leap of faith when it is time or else how can you grow and move in your called office to do the work of God???
ANXIETY, FEAR, WEAKNESS, LACK OF FAITH, DOUBTS, NEGATIVITY, INNER BATTLES..- REJECT THEM
Are some of the reasons as to why people always stay in comfort zones, not working on their inner being to grow and progress, their minds are fixed on thinking negatively and to see themselves prospering is unimaginable to them because of all the mind games and lack of prayers. Stuck in a routine with ideas and dreams but always feel it is never the time for them and all those excuses continue to pile up more and more, thinking they aren’t good enough or worthy enough to be called. BUT you see you are worthy, special, gifted and unique and if you cant learn to see yourself how God sees you, you will always stay in one place.
Pray to God for DIRECTION and let Him lead, you are not to act as though you are in control of everything because we need Him in all areas of our lives.
I am excited to share this series with you all and hope it blesses and helps someone..
Also if you have any questions you will like to ask please do feel free to message us and you never know that question may help someone else who can also benefit from it but is not confident enough to speak out.
God bless you all
