Are You Living a Meaningful Life? - Next Level Calling

CALLING…
SIGNIFICANCE OVER SUCCESS

Often so much weight is put on the word “Calling” that it is hard to understand or it seems out of reach for many people. What do you think it means to have a calling? If you already know what God has called you to do with your life, how are you pursuing it? What keeps you from living out your calling?

…VALUE

You were put here for a reason, with your unique personality, skills, passions, and point of view. You’re meant to do very unique work in this world. So many of us go through life with a sense that we’re not living up to our full potential. An understanding that there’s more to life. In Ephesians 4:1 Apostle Paul says:

“therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called”

The word “worthy” when translated into Greek is Axios. Axios means weight, assigning a matching value (worth-to worth), as the assessment in keeping with how something “weighs in” on God’s balance – a scale of truth. This statement implies that your calling is on a balance of the same equal value or worth to God’s truth.

“Look I am setting a plumb line among my people” (Amos 7:8)

A plumb line is used by bricklayers to make sure they lay a brick wall straight & true. God measures us by His standards, His word and no other

…HOW DO I KNOW?

Many wonder what is God’s calling for their life but have no clue where to start to find the answer. The reason this question is so significant is that the work we do is important to God. The Scripture tells us, “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).

…PURPOSE

Your Calling Is Not for You, Your Calling Is Not from You, Your Calling Is Not Future Tense.

…ACTION

God prods us into action in many ways. You may be sensing the Lord prodding you to do something different. For example:

Jacqueline, age 21, said: “I’ll finish college this year, and I really want to do something significant with my life. I know God has given me gifts, but I don’t know exactly what they are or what I should do when I graduate. I’m trying to figure it all out, but I’m feeling pretty confused.”

Bill, age 35, experienced a wake-up call in his life: “My job pays well, but it’s really stressful. I recently took a hard look at my work and realized that I have been sacrificing not only my health but also my family, for a job that really isn’t making much of a positive contribution in this world. Success isn’t what I thought it would be. I need to find out what God put me on earth to do, but I don’t know how to go about figuring that out.”

At 45, Linda entered a new chapter of life: “My children are out of the house now, and I’m finding I don’t really know who I am and what the Lord wants me to do with my time. Raising kids was my calling, but there’s got to be more He has for me to do now. I’m just not sure what to do!”

These types of life situations, as well as many others, create a sense of needing to “do something” to find work that fits and brings a sense of purpose to our lives. You may be feeling restless energy that is propelling you to take action. Don’t you think that something so valuable deserves to be at-least pondered on and examined?

Next Level Calling is a destiny call echoing that our life is for a God-ordained purpose & reason. This destiny call searches questions that almost every person has had at some time or the other like – Do I have a call of God on my life, what is it, and how do I fulfill it? This destiny call then reaches through philosophical, spiritual, and physical elements to help you fulfill your Next Level Calling

“EACH TIME A MAN OR WOMAN STANDS UP FOR AN IDEAL OR ACTS TO IMPROVE THE LOT OF OTHERS, OR STRIKES OUT AGAINST INJUSTICE, HE SENDS FORTH A TINY RIPPLE OF HOPE, AND CROSSING EACH OTHER FROM A MILLION DIFFERENT CENTERS OF ENERGY AND DARING. THOSE RIPPLES BUILD A CURRENT THAT CAN SWEEP DOWN THE MIGHTIEST OF WALLS OR OPPRESSION AND RESISTANCE” (ROBERT KENNEDY)

AN OBSERVATION…

Water molecules are amazing things. They connect to each other on all sides. The exception to that are the water molecules at the surface, these ones have no molecules on top to connect to, so they compensate by connecting even more strongly to those on side of them. That reinforced connection of these water molecules we call surface tension. When that surface has an object as small as another water droplet fall upon it there is a depression of the surface. Then, as the object passes through that surface tension, the surface tension springs back into place. That action creates a horizontal push on the water molecules beside it and the ripple develops each time the surface readjusts to its equilibrium. The testimony that something has broken the surface tension comes from the series of ripples radiating out from the center.

That’s just a tiny law of physics that God created for us to one day discover. Like every law, He creates it causes order, enables life, and reflects an even greater order that it is just a small part of. Ripple effects occur when an object is dropped into a body of water and ever-widening ripples expand across the water. An initially motionless state is interrupted and followed by ripples that expand outwards incrementally. Small and tight at first, the ripples continually widen in circular patterns covering more and more territory. The ripple effect is a good illustration of our Calling in life. In order to see this effect, we must first disturb the water. Ripples don’t just add they multiply as each concentric circle is exponentially larger than the former.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DISTURB TODAY?

The ripple effect is not only recognized in the natural world but in the spiritual realm as well. It does not matter who you are – what you do – or your position in life, God created us all with a plan and purpose
