Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7b For everything there is a season, a right time for every intention under heaven — a time to keep silent and a time to speak.
For years I have asked the Lord to do His work and to be in ministry. I did not know how this would come about, but nevertheless I continued in my pursuit. I took courses, read books and studied.
An opportunity came my way and I grabbed it, and began a certain type of ministry training that I recently completed. I knew the next step would be exciting and adventurous, but what is also coming was very unexpected.
Besides this area of ministry which I trained for, my husband and I will officially be part of the pastoral staff at our local church.
Surprised? Yes. Nervous? Of course. Trusting in God? Absolutely. Do I let it slip away? No, even though the thought did cross my mind several times.
So how does one become what their heart desires? For me, I have lived it in my dreams. I studied, read books, prayed, declared it , and I have seen it. I did 2 Timothy 2:15. The next step was to walk it out in faith, trusting God that He will complete what I have started.
We become what the Lord desire for us by doing, whether it’s being a parent, a writer, an evangelist, a wife, husband, teacher, electrician, so on and so forth. If we don’t do, we will never become.
All of us have some type of dream or vision, God built us that way to desire more of Him and have His grace, love and mercy flowing through us to pour out to others. When we seek Him first and pursue that desire, He is faithful and will complete it. He will give us the desires of our heart. We just need to do our part and make that effort.
When the time comes, we will present ourselves approved to God, worthy of being His ambassador, and the days of being silent will come to an end.
May you be richly blessed this day, and walk out your calling, standing in His authority.
