“These are the ones who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are celibate. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from mankind as first fruits to God and to the Lamb” (Revelation 14:4).
We each have a call from the Lord. A vocation, that which the Lord has created us to do. These are things the Lord gives. Do not be surprised. Look at creation and you see the great diversity that the Lord has created. The Lord has given you a vocation. Not a job, but a heart’s desire to fulfill. Are you walking with the Lord and living out what He has given you to do? Live for the Lord, for He has redeemed you.
Lord, sometimes I do not know why I am living. I go through the motions, but I often do not understand what is happening around me. Guide me, dear Lord, in the way of everlasting life so that I may humbly walk in that way You have created me to walk with You. Guide me in Your goodness to know both that I have the life You have created and its purpose You are awakening me day by day.
Lord Jesus, You redeemed me with Your own blood. With Your life, You freed me from the penalty on my head because of sin. Help me to not just go on living, but to live with the purpose You have implanted in me from the beginning. Guide me in Your goodness to know that in You alone, the Author of life, and my faith, is all that I need. Help me each day to seek You and Your righteousness. Amen.
