What are the things that keep you from moving forward in your faith and sense of purpose – fear, self-preservation, self-ambition?
Do you wrestle with doubt when it comes to His plan for your life?
Listen as Susie unpacks a message from her book, Your Beautiful Purpose. We talk about how to overcome fear and other obstacles and step out in faith, into the calling God puts in front of you.
The bottom line is this – your purpose in life is not intangible. It’s not hidden away in a box, with God waiting for you to speak the correct password before He’ll open it. Your purpose in life is two-fold; to walk intimately with God and do the next thing He puts in front of you.
There are three keys in this discussion:
How to identify our gifting and calling.
Avoiding the ditches of self-preservation (fear) or self-ambition (pride).
The three phases of our calling – a dream far away, a dream close up, and stepping into the dream.
God takes time to prepare us for our calling, and one of the most important tools is learning to hear God’s voice as He’s preparing us for a new place and opportunity. Susie says, ask God to give you a vision that is “totally disproportionate” to your life. If He’s asking you to use your gifts in a way that makes your knees shake, that’s where He wants you. God prepares a calling for each of us that usually feels “too big” for us – that’s why He works in such a way that only He can get the credit for what is accomplished.
