Jesus Is My Everything Bible Study Week Nine
Jesus is My Everything Week 9.
This brings me to the next thing I learned while on this journey. Have solid convictions about your calling. Once you step into the calling of God on your
life and the will of God is working in your life, you will begin to see Him use you to reach people that others don’t even want to talk to in the supermarket. You will see the Holy Ghost move and people be humbled under the power of the Lord Jesus and their lives begin to change.
There are a few things we must keep in mind once we begin this journey:
A. Once you step into this arena you MUST search yourself daily that you do not get distracted or fall to the spirit of deception.
a. 2 Peter 1:10-11 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
i. You must MAKE YOUR ELECTION SURE, AND WALK IN THE CONVICTION OF YOUR CALLING, applying all the steps above to your walk.
b. Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
i. You must remain humble that you do not fall from this calling.
B. You must make up in your mind, heart, body, strength and soul that you will not bend nor bow to any spirit but the spirit of the living God.
C. satan (not capitalized on purpose) only has three weapons.
a. Lust of the eyes,
i. The lust of the eyes is that first look taken at temptation.
b. lust of the flesh and
i. The lust of the flesh is that second look that says, “oh that looks good, let me get a little closer.”
c. pride of life...
i. The pride of life is the lie hell tells you that says, “oh, I’m a good person. I work hard and I don’t hurt no one. Look at me, I am working for the Lord. His grace will cover me… You know what? I deserve that.”
Then next comes the fall. The Bible says Pride comes before a fall. This I know to be true, for I am not speaking from a virgin voice. I cannot sit and
testify to you about these things I have learned if I have not experienced the test that gave me the testimony. Take it from one that knows and loves you enough to tell you straight up. Guard your calling with your very soul. Lay down your life for it. Once you begin this journey of walking in the calling that God has on your life, never look back. Just like Elisha, he gave up everything to follow Elijah and sought with his whole heart a double portion of the anointing on Elijah’s life. He endured to the end and received the anointing because He made his election sure. He told his family goodbye; he sold his oxen (that was his way of making a living) and gave up his home. He walked away from everything to run after the calling that was on his life. If we are to fully walk in the calling God placed on our lives, we must walk in the conviction of that calling with our whole heart.
