What is Your Calling? Are You Far Away from Reaching It?

Today’s post on God’s Promises for Living takes a look at Romans 8:28 as it relates to the call God has placed on your life.

Has God called you for a special purpose? If you are a child of God, the answer is “Yes!” But … do you seem far away from meeting your Heavenly calling?

If you feel far away from that goal, here’s a look at Romans 8:28. God is right now behind the scenes of your life, training and preparing you for amazing things for His glory! Consider this your official “training ground” and be encouraged to press on! Watch this video:

Romans 8:28: The Message:I love this version!

26-28 Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

Romans 8:28 (Amplified Bible)

28 We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

  • How funny that I came across this video today!  I was praying and asking God which direction He wants me to go, then I started looking up some things on Autism since that is one of the areas I’m interested in moving toward.  From the page on Autism I followed a link that was supposed to be about Autism, and I ended up coming to this video about fulfilling your God-given calling! I wasn’t expecting this, but wow did it ever make me cry!  Thanks for touching me so deeply and for being obedient to YOUR calling to speak and write.
