Don’t make the call about you. God’s call on your life is a blessing from God intended to benefit others. God blesses those who pour themselves out for others (Isaiah 58:10). I’m a big believer in the truth, “If God can get it through you, he can get it to you.”
God doesn’t want us to be a dam or reservoir that contains the blessing but more like a channel and river that passes on the blessing. We are blessed to be a blessing to others. All the gifts and abilities, opportunities and relationships we have are not about us. They are to be stewarded for the benefit of others.
I’ve observed many people live in a state of continual discontentment and want. I think one of the reasons for this is we can get too easily preoccupied with ourselves, and as long as our eyes on ourselves, we will find reasons to be dissatisfied. The moment you get your eyes onto others and start serving them and pouring yourself out for them, you don’t have time to be concerned about what isn’t perfect in your life.
Your call is not about you, it’s about others. I’ve never seen anybody help someone else up in life without being helped up themselves. What you sow is what you reap. God gives grace, favor and influence to individuals for God’s purposes of extending his kingdom in more people’s lives. The more we make our call about us, we are limiting what God wants to do through us to affect change in people. Keep the call pure and keep it focused on Jesus and others and you will be an incredible blessing to others.
