|Discussing the Issues of Life!
|Beginning Your Calling Journey
by Minister Ginger London, MA
Where do you begin on discovering your calling and destiny journey? If you are at a place of trying to discover and
understand what God has called you to do or what your next step or move is, a good place for you to start can be found
in Jeremiah 18:1-6.
"This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: "Go down to the POTTER'S HOUSE, and there I will give you
MY MESSAGE." So I went down to the potter's house, and I saw him WORKING at the wheel. But the POT he was
shaping from the CLAY was marred in his hands; so the potter FORMED it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best
to him. "Then the word of the Lord came to me: O House of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does? declares
the Lord. Like clay in the hand of the Potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel." (New International Version)
To discover what you are called to do and what your potential is for the next step or level in your life and ministry, you
must do as Jeremiah was instructed to do, you must go to the POTTER'S HOUSE and receive a MESSAGE. For us
today, the Potter's House is symbolic of God, YOU MUST go to God. The MESSAGE is the Word of God. God is
always at work through His Word.
Your potential is the POT shaped from the CLAY (your life). Your life before being born again was marred, now as a
Believer God has taken your life, the clay, into His hands and is forming it into it's greatest potential. "Therefore, if any
man be in Christ, he is a new creation, the old had gone, and the new has come! 2 Corinthians
5:17 (NIV). A new creation, regenerated, a new mold, a new shape, a new POT-ENTIAL. It is through the Word of
God where your life (clay) is shaped as it seems best to Him.
The Word of God provides His message to you to give you direction, guidance, guidelines and encouragement as you
submit yourself to it. The Word of God will prune and shape your potential. As a Christian and/or Christian Leader the
Word of God will speak to your life in the areas of character and integrity, life problems, ministry problems and
blessings, and finding the help you need.
Scriptures to Feed Your Spirit:
Psalm 32:8 - I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye
(King James Version).
John 15:7-8 - If you remain in me and my word remains in you ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
(New International Version)
