Chosen by God!
This is how the Lord responds:
“If you return to me, I will restore you
so you can continue to serve me.
If you speak good words rather than worthless ones,
you will be my spokesman.
You must influence them;
do not let them influence you!" (Jeremiah 15:19 NLT)
When you are called into His service you are called to a higher standard of thinking, speaking, and acting.
We are called to change, or set, the atmosphere wherever we are. We are called to speak truth even when truth hurts and may cause separation. We are called to influence the world and not be influenced by the world.
While it may look like you're all alone remember, God stands with you and that has to be enough to keep you going!
The called have a mantle that sets us apart because the calling requires us to stand out - not to fit in!
“If you are given much, much will be required of you. If much is entrusted to you, much will be expected of you.” (Luke 12:48b The Voice)
God has given us much, starting with Jesus and sealed by His Holy Spirit. God placed His purpose in us. It’s a part of our dynamic spiritual DNA. Walking in that purpose is totally up to you. The key is living a set apart life consecrated to God. When called by God walk fully in it with your eyes on Jesus. Do not let people distract you. Seek God or continue to seek Him. You already have His approval and acceptance.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5 AMPC)
