I wish I could tell you that once your discover God’s calling and purpose for your life that the heavens will open and everything will just fall into place but I can’t.  The truth is that you have to fight for it.  You have to go after it.

The Easy Part

The understanding that you are called to do something for God is itself a gift from God and very often God just reveals that to us.  It enters our hearts and minds rather easily but that is where the effortless part ends.

The Hard Part

From that moment on, you’ll like have to fight for it.  You’ll have to fight your own doubts, the enemy, obstacles and critics.  To be sure, there will always be resistance when you attempt to step our in faith and obedience.

Worth Any Cost

It’s worth it though.  It’s so worth it.  Pursuing God’s call on your life will forever change you in the best of ways, and it will invariably help others too.

It’s a tough fight but the rewards are huge.  So, fight for it!  Stop waiting and go fight for it!
