2017 – Day 8 – I Am Called

When I think of what it means to be aligned with God I think of us being called by God for a purpose and running with the purpose he has for us.

As young people going through school, relationships, GCSES, finding jobs, looking at the future of what we are doing where we are going, feeling pressured to look a certain way and make “right choices” to please others, deciding on what trends to follow, what music to like etc. All of this can distract us from the purpose in which God has called us for.

For me being aligned is remembering I am Called by God for greater things and that purpose is the best life he has for me.
Being aligned is to always remember that we are called to Love God and to love others.

When you align yourself with the purposes of God and place your dependence upon Him, He will help you through every difficult situation you face. God loves you with an everlasting love and has CALLED YOU for a great purpose. He has a plan for your life.

Looking at Isaiah 60:1

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.”

This bible verse for me is what God has called me to do. To show his love and set people free.

If we align ourselves with him, we can be the generation who set people free. In a world that is full of darkness let’s show the love and hope that we have found in God to others around us.

In the lead up to SYC pray and ask God to remind you of His love for you and that you are called for a purpose, he will reveal to you your purpose in time, that is greater than deciding what your next Instagram post will be, what fashion you should follow or what GCSES you should take.

Align yourself with Him and he will align Himself with you.
