Are you fulfilling your God-given call? Do you even know what God called you to do in this life?
If not, you’re certainly not alone. While being unsure of God’s plan for our lives is common among Christians, you can avoid going through the confusion phase (Ephesians 5:17).
In the first place, how can we expect to build God’s Kingdom if we don’t know our part in it?
To fulfill the will of the Lord in your life, you have to realize first that He has a specific calling and plan for you.
According to prophet Jeremiah, “Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:4-5)
While it isn’t your calling to be a prophet like Jeremiah, the Lord has a plan for you. You aren’t just a mistake that happened to go somewhere. You didn’t exist by chance. Everything in your life, including the place and time of your birth, your parents, and your personality is given by God for a specific purpose.
However, you can’t assume that the will of the Lord will just occur in your life or the lives of other people. If you look around, that’s obvious.
Case in point, it’s said in the Scripture that God wants all of us to repent and be saved (2 Peter 3:9), but not everyone does. He also wants us to be healed, but some people have sicknesses.
Similarly, God wants us to find and walk in the purpose He has ordained for us, but not every one of us will. Then again, this is not God’s fault. He has done His part, and our part is to discover His will for us.
Once we realize that God has a plan for us, the next thing we need to do is to seek Him for it. The good news is that He is not hiding His will from us.
To seek God, we have to follow what is written in Jeremiah 29:12-13: “Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
It is emphasized here to seek Him with all your heart. This is the only way to find His will for your life (Matthew 7:7).
