You were born to work for God!
You know you have a destiny. You know that God has a calling on your life and you want to fulfill the incredible plans he has laid out for you. Seeing souls saved, needs met, and the gospel preached gets you pumped. You were born to work for God!
Or, maybe you are the type of person who cannot say with confidence that God has big things in store, but you have a heart for God that is huge. Something in you breaks when you think about people who do not know Christ. Your heart is torn when you picture the state of the world. But you’re not one of those people who merely point out the need, you want to be there when God answers the need! When God answers prayers and does miracles, you want to be there, not only to watch, but to participate.
If your prayer is that God’s kingdom would be built and his Son glorified, this book is for you. By the time you have turned the last page, and read the last words, you will be better equipped to participate in God’s plan.
However, it would be a shame to skip the first step in this whole process. We must get first things first, or nothing will come out right.
You are called to make Him known, to be effective and to produce lasting fruit, so your first priority must be to know God well. The next several articles are about getting to know God – His voice, His strategies. If you learn who He is, how to hear Him, and what He is most concerned about, you will be effective in making Him known.
Be sure and read the following articles. As these are more lengthy articles, take the time to process through each before moving on to the next.
