Topic: Called of God?
Member # 1
We are apt to conceive of a servant of God as being a great strong terrific leader whom nothing ever affects. In Jeremiah the acme of human sensitiveness is sanctified in the service of God. The servant of God is never self-elected , there is always this impelling call of God, and it is always the most unlikely man, the most unlikely woman, God calls.
There is always a witness, the word comes, it comes to us from without. How am I to know what God has ordained me for? By His eternal word. We have to stir up our minds and find out what God’s purpose is by obeying His word and relying on His Spirit. “My people doth not consider,” says God (Isaiah 1:3). Will the word of God come to me? Of course it will! Will the Spirit of God see that I fulfil that word? Of course He will! If we will keep in the light with God, our destination is as sure and as established as God, as certain as His throne.
When once you realise the Divine purpose behind your life you will never say again, “I am so weak”; you will know you are, but you will be strong in His strength. The only strength we have is the strength of God, which comes to us from the vision of God and of His power. The time of stress in which there is no vision, no insight, no sensing of the presence of God, is the time to stand firm in faith in God and God will do all the rest. Keep true to God and your development in God’s plan is certain.
From: Notes on Jeremiah by Oswald Chambers
I have heard it ask, “How will I know if I am called of God?”
Some one said that if you can do nothing else, then you are surely called.
