God's desire is that we fully understand who we really are in Him, and the extent of the calling on the lives of His saints. The call is immense – full of His "kabod" glory, and it is vital to our covenant DESTINY in Christ that we have His revelation on the fullness of the call in this incredible hour we are chosen to serve Him in.
"...according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began..." - 2 Timothy 1:8-9. The words "holy calling" can also mean a sacred invitation given to us (individually) by God to partner and join with Him in fulfilling a specific work, purposed by Him and given before time began.
Romans 8 declares that the suffering we experience, or that we will ever experience, is not to be compared to the incredible glory God intends to reveal in us. Building upon this revelation, Paul goes on to say that the whole earth is eagerly waiting in expectation for the eyes of the sons and daughters to be opened to the truth that they are the sons of God, chosen before the foundation of the world...and they begin to step out in their holy CALLING in Christ!
Why is the earth in travail over this? Paul answers that it is because the earth will be delivered from bondage and corruption into the glory, liberty, and freedom that the sons of God are prepared to let loose on humanity!
COMPLETING OUR ASSIGNED DESTINY
In Jeremiah 29, God says that He knows the plans He has for us! We have each been called to a specific work, a unique assignment prepared for us (God's purpose for our life) before we were born – God's purpose is that we should walk in it and fulfill our CALLING in Christ on this generation.
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works (labor), which God prepared beforehand (ordained before) that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10
When God calls, for some, the first tendency is to resist and to make objections: we are too insignificant,
we have no platform,
we have no money or education,
we have no voice,
we cannot speak,
we cannot write,
and on and on we go in unbelief. But God declared to Jeremiah that he would fulfill theCALLING because He would be with him, that He would protect him, and that He would put His words in his mouth.
MANIFEST THE FIRE AND GLORY WITHIN
Paul admonishes Timothy – as God would admonish all sons and daughters of God, to FAN INTO FLAMES the spiritual gift that has been given to us, deposited into our being, woven into our DNA, to be brought for the release of Kingdom glory, to do great damage to the kingdom of darkness, and release captives from spiritual imprisonment.
We are to let our light shine! This means to manifest the fire and the glory within! It is time to show up, to come forth, and arise! Our journey after leaving the womb of our mother has been to find our way back to Father God, to the CALLING and original intention of God given to us individually before time began.
Don't resist Him! Allow your Father to re-release in you His great treasures, the gifts, and the power of your divine covenant CALLING – the DESTINY prepared for you in Christ!
All children of God are born again in Christ as Sons of God, indelibly united to the Firstborn Son of God. The Father chose us before, in Christ, to be the image of Christ. We are united to Him in life, call, purpose, and destiny – an army of voices crying out, "PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD!"
