Have you ever found yourself in a season of life where you’re unsure which direction to take next? Maybe you’re a new to ministry and you’re unsure of where to start. Or you are finding yourself stuck in an idleness that’s left you restless. The Lord created us for good works and, as born again Christians, He places in each and every one of us a passion for sharing the gospel.
True fulfillment comes from doing what God has called us to do.
Luke 10 starts off with Jesus gathered around the 72 people He appointed to go out to the places He was about to go. In verse 2, Jesus tells them “the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” This still holds true today. We live in a world that is far from God and we have a calling as Christ followers to share the love of Jesus.
Although a busy life is not meant to be a fulfilling life, we are also not called to be idle. There is plenty of work to do. If you find yourself unsure of what you should be doing, take some time to ask God to delegate some work to you. He knows your heart and what you have to offer based on past experiences and circumstances, as well as the talents He has placed inside of you. He will also equip you to do the work He calls you to do. So, today, ask the Lord what area He has called you to harvest in and open your heart up to His desires. You will always be left fulfilled.
