Your Calling, Fear, and Trust.

” The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to turn away from the snares of death.” Proverbs 14:27

This verse says it all, the fear of the Lord is a fountain of life! He doesn’t mean to be afraid of Him, but have a healthy and respectful fear of Him. I’m going to start by asking some questions that you can ask yourself.

1. Do I fear the Father?

2. Do I trust Him?

3. Am I afraid to grow up?

4. What is my calling?

5. What does the Father have planned for my life?

These are all questions I ask myself daily. Yes, I fear the Lord.

In Proverbs 31:30 it says ” Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a women who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Do I trust Him?

Recently I had been struggling with trusting Him, but I am learning everyday to let go and let God. I started out just letting go of stressing about stuff and just constantly thanking Him, instead of asking for things. I thank Him for what He is doing in my walk with Him, with what He has done and what He will do.

He is the Aleph and the Tav, the beginning and end! Trust Him. I wouldn’t be who I am today without the love of our Savior, and His word guiding me and His Spirit leading me everyday!

Am I afraid to grow up?

Yes, very afraid. But I can’t keep my eyes on the future, I have to think about today, right now, this moment.

Matthew 6:34 says ” Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about it’s own things. Sufficient for the day is it’s own trouble.”

So I need to be still and know that He is God! And trust His plans for me, trust that He is using my good days, and my bad days to shape me and prepare me to be a godly wife and mother and to be HIS bride. Trust Him.

What is my calling?

This is a hard question to ask because you may not know yet. The Father will show you in His timing for you. Just seek Him and pray and thank Him. He’s got everything under control. I know, for me, that I may know what my calling is, but i’ m still seeking Him and searching for answers and asking for His guidance to get me there. I think the last question ties in with the one above. ” What does the Father have planned for my life? “ Like I was saying, seek Him, pray, and thank Him. He isn’t going to reveal to you every single secret and move He has for you all in one day! That would be extremely overwhelming! But trust and know that you are where you are supposed to be, right now, and you are who you are because that’s who the Father designed you to be. Trust Him.
