“Embracing God's Divine Plans for My Calling”

Title: Embracing God's Divine Plans for My Calling


In the book of Jeremiah 29:11-12 (NKJV), God reveals His intentions and plans for us, saying, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you." This passage highlights the importance of prayer in discerning and embracing our divine calling. Through prayer, we open ourselves to God's guidance and wisdom, allowing Him to reveal His plans and equip us for our journey.


Here, the Hebrew word for "thoughts" can also be translated as "plans" or "intentions." This profound insight illuminates the nature of God's guidance in our lives, indicating that His plans are always meticulously crafted with peace, hope, and a meaningful future in mind. It is a reminder that our calling, chosen by the Lord, is not a random occurrence but a part of His intentional design to bless us with a purposeful journey filled with His peace and hope. Your divine calling, just like mine, is unique and special. It is the path God has set for you, tailored to your unique gifts and talents and designed to bring you fulfillment and joy as you serve Him and others.


In theology, where the Apostles' teachings are foundational, there can be struggles with those who overlook or disregard these essential doctrines. These struggles may manifest as doubts, conflicting interpretations, or societal pressures. However, as teachers of the Gospel, it is our loving duty and unwavering commitment to uphold and teach the unblemished message and teachings of Christ and the Apostles. These teachings are not just historical artifacts but living truths that guide us in understanding God's will and purpose for our lives. They provide a solid foundation amidst theological debates and societal pressures, helping us stay true to our faith and divine calling.


Therefore, I affirm that God's divine plans for my calling bring peace, hope, and a purposeful future. I am dedicated to upholding my ministry's unblemished Gospel and teachings of Christ and the Apostles. In doing so, I embrace the divine intentions that God has woven into my calling, trusting that His plans will lead me to fulfill His purpose with grace and effectiveness.


As Charles Swindoll aptly says, "Each problem is a God-appointed instructor." This quote captures the essence of understanding and emphasizes the importance of challenges and obstacles in our journey. They are not mere hindrances but opportunities for growth and learning. They are instructors appointed by God to refine us, strengthen our faith, and equip us to fulfill our divine calling.


Let us stand firm in our unwavering commitment to follow God's plans and teachings, for therein lies the true essence of following Christ and fulfilling our divine calling. This commitment is not just a choice but a determination to embrace God's path.


Closing with a traditional Orthodox Christian Trinitarian prayer:


I will conclude with a traditional Orthodox Christian Trinitarian prayer, which symbolizes the unity and harmony of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and our commitment to walk in God's path. It is a prayer for guidance and strength, acknowledging our dependence on God's wisdom and power in fulfilling our divine calling. Amen.


In Christ, love ❤️ Jared W Campbell
