Why does God want the totality of your life before He shows you your calling? The answer to that question is found in John 7:16–17, where Jesus said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If any man is willing to do His will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from Myself.”
If you want to know your calling, don’t go “calling-looking.” Go God-looking. God knows where He wants you, what He is calling you to do, when He wants you to do it, and how He wants it done. Therefore, if you want to find your calling, look for God. When you find God, His calling will find you.
One of the most important principles to keep in mind as a kingdom woman is that your life uniquely flows through different seasons. Each of these seasons carries with it different time-restraints, blessings and also demands. To try and do all things without being cognizant of the season you are in is the surest way to lead to burnout, and even bitterness.
Sometimes I get the impression that when we ask God to bless us, we forget the full definition of a blessing. We forget that God doesn’t want us to be culd-e-sac Christians where all of our blessings end with us. God wants us to be conduit Christians where all of our blessings extend through us to others.
