Fresh Hope – 18th April 2017

When God calls you to do something, His call is confirmed in several ways:

1. You feel ‘moved’. There’s a moment of certainty when God puts His hand on you and nudges you towards a particular need, usually an unmet one.

2. It’s confirmed by others. People around you will discern that God is at work in your life; people that know you well will watch you and see when you’re at your best. They’ll say things like…’you shine when you do that.’

3. You’ll be gifted to do it. God’s call to your life will always come with His giftedness. You may not realise it at first, but you will start to feel His hand holding yours when you do what you were created to do. When you’re in your ‘calling’ you soar despite the obstacles.

4. You’ll see results. You’ll change things and touch lives. St.Patrick once had a dream of the people of Ireland calling him to walk among them. He responded and an entire nation began its journey towards Christianity.

You can’t live in someone’s else dream, you are called to have a dream for your own life. Sometimes your dream starts by helping others to fulfil theirs.

Remember: you are not so much asked to DECIDE what to do with your life, but to DISCERN what you are to do with your life.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
