Insights to Discerning God’s Will

You do not belong to yourself; you belong to Jesus. If you called into the ministry of the gospel, you do not get the privilege to determine where you locate and how you are going to spend your life. When this is violated, you settle for much less than what God has for you.

Stop reducing God into your selfish and vocational box. Release God to do whatever He desires to do in and through you, regardless of what it may be or where it leads you.

Insight #7: Always keep the heart of Isaiah 6:8, “Here am I, send me.”

Early in the morning on March 4, 2018, God led me to begin praying Isaiah 6:8 into my life daily. Yes, for over 13 months I prayed Isaiah 6:8 daily, which God used to keep my heart aligned with the Holy Spirit, and ultimately unknowing to me, what God was doing in my life. Never did I imagine while praying these words, all would become so personalized that it would dramatically shift my calling, position and location.

God seeded my heart with Isaiah 6:8, cultivating a culture in my life that whatever God wanted, I was ready to do. I was willing to go and more than willing to stay.

So Much More

There is so much more I could say about these matters. Perhaps I will in the future, but today, my goal is to keep this article brief enough that the insights glisten before you more clearly. May you discern God’s will for your future.

Now Is the Time to Lead,
