Getting Ready for Your Dreams
Earlier this week I talked about having an amazing life-changing transformation after accepting the Lord. Stories like Nicky Cruz and his being led to salvation by Pastor David Wilkerson are , well, the stuff of which books and movies are made. Sometimes our stories are less glamorous, sometimes they are quite profound. In any case, when we make the choice for Jesus, God begins to reveal His call on our lives.
This time of awakening of the purpose of your life can be a bit intimidating, but God has been preparing you for that thing your entire life. It's not necessary to be fearful because it's God hand on your life. If you look back over your life, that thing God is calling you to do now is probably similar to things you've done throughout your life up until you asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior.
Terri Savelle Foy says that "when you're ready, get ready!" Meaning when you're ready to accept the assignment God has put on your life, He's probably going to kick it up a notch and challenge you to move to the next level of trusting Him. It might mean a career change from Information Technology to full-time artist. Or from shipping clerk to truck driver. These are examples of people I know, but our job is two-fold: be willing to do what God is calling us to; and not to get ahead of God's plans. His timing is perfect! His plans for you are for good and not evil; to prosper you and give you a hope, a future, and an expected end!
