As I've mentioned before, I'm called to be an evangelist. God has revealed to me little at a time what His plan for my life is. He is still showing me things along and along. The thing is I haven't always known what I was chosen for. I knew that I was called to more than just the norm, but I also was very unsure about my future.
For what seemed like forever, I prayed and prayed and prayed some more. I longed and hungered and worried over God's will for my life. I was dying to know the Lord's thoughts and intentions for me. Then, my youth group attended the Forward conference with Jentezen Franklin. I could feel it was going to be a good conference before I even showed up. The conference was amazing, but there was one message given by Matthew Barnett that really stuck with me. He spoke from Proverbs 3:5 (I still have the notes!)
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;" Proverbs 3:5 (NKJV)
He spoke some on not looking for your cause, your cause will find you. That's when it hit me! I had been trying for so long to find God's plan for my life that I hadn't waited on Him to reveal it to me. I wanted so bad for God to use me that I hadn't been concerned about Hid timing!
So, I left it at that. I gave my worry and my desire of knowing His plans for my life to Him and decided to wait.
Now don't think that just because I gave it to God, I didn't think about it still. I did believe me, I just didn't worry about it any longer. Just like Psalm says,
"Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4(NKJV)
That's what I did, I put my delights in Him and He gave me my desires. God revealed to me His plan for my life in His timing. His timing just happened to be a couple of weeks later. That very summer, when I wasn't even expecting it, God revealed Himself. An older gentleman, whom I trust very much, just out of the blue pointed at me and said "You are called to be an evangelist." I didn't say a word. I didn't know what to say! In my heart though I was excited, thankful, and overjoyed! I didn't know how to react.
The Word says,
"The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him." Lamentations 3:25(NKJV)
He is good to us! Amen to that!
