BELIEVERS MUST PREPARE THEMSELVES FOR THE CALL OF GOD
When it comes to serving in the ministry as one of God’s Disciples you are never to young, are too old because God prepares us all in his own way, but all of us will not accept the call to serve. The one true important fact we all need to know is this, we are a chosen people, chosen by God to worship and serve him. When God thinks we are ready he will call us to come unto him. The first thing you will say when the call comes upon you is, “but God,” I am not ready. I am just a little child or I am too old. I have a lot of living to do, and God will say to you, my son, I have heard those same words many times before, and when I heard them I told each person the same thing. Listen to what happen when God called Jeremiah to be a prophet. He was only thirteen at the time, but God knew he was ready when he sent out the call. This is what God told Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in your Mother’s womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” “Ah, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am only a child.
But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, I am only a child.” You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “Now, I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:5-10).
You see God never makes a mistake. When God called Jeremiah, he commissioned him to be a prophet to a nation. God knew Jeremiah would face many obstacles and would have to confront some powerful people along the way. But God assured Jeremiah that he would be up to the task. Don’t worry about small things, because I am here to fight your battles for you. All I want you to do is to be ready to stand up and be a strong moral leader with an unshakable conviction to lead my people in the manner I have given you.
When you are young or old and you hear the voice of God calling you, don’t be afraid to follow God, because God will have your back. When in the time of trouble, your best friend may desert you. But you can rest assured that God will always be there for you. Learn to depend on God, because he is someone you can trust in the heat of battle. God wants you to walk with him and become a good role model and set examples for your peers to learn to live by, although you will face some tough going and be ridiculed by your peers. God says not to worry because he will be with you even until the end of times.
God is saying to you right now, to understand his word and write them on your heart, because when trouble comes and you know it is going to come, the words of the Lord is like having a sword in your hand and it is guaranteed to cut both ways, to the right and to the left. It is your shield of armor that will always protect you.
Therefore, I encourage each one of you, the young and the old to think on the things of God and not on the things of this world. God is calling you now to be a soldier in his army. Turn away from the evil of Satan, and prepare yourself to except the challenge of serving in the ministry of God. Remember, it is never too late, and you must never, “say never,” or I can’t do this. Just know that when God calls you, he knows you are ready, he knows you better than you know yourself.
Today, I encourage you to open your mind and think boldly on what God can do, and be ready to go onto the battlefield. I have ministered to you this day from a position of PEACE, PURPOSE, POWER and PROSPERITY. I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!
