Vocation is the Career of Life

Vocation is the Career of Life

The career you choose will set your course in life.  A dream-seed is sovereignly deposited in each of us very early in life.  It connects us to our destiny.  Children dream of what they will become when they grow up.  Their dreams may take them on fantasies of becoming a fireman one week and a policeman the next.  But ultimately, our dreams take us to a specific passion.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep the streets even as Michael Angelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare composed poetry.  He should sweep the streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” The important thing is that wherever your vocation takes you; make sure you are following your dreams.

I Timothy 5:18 (NKJV)

“The laborer is worthy of his wages.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

Life is too short to spend it feeling unfulfilled.  True fulfillment is found in discovering God’s perfect will and plan.

  • Answer the following questions: Does your currant position fulfill your dreams and expectations? What do you lack in possessing the credentials you need to acquire the occupation you have always wanted? It is never too late to change direction.
  • Write your desires for employment. List the conditions and salary you need. Qualifying for career changes may require further education. Keep a current résumé. Get ready for a promotion.
  • Ask God to reveal His plan. Let Him direct your steps. He closes and opens doors when you ask for His guidance. Remember, it is more important to fulfill purpose than to fill a position. Ambitions connected to purpose finds ways to make dreams come true.

“Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink into that. Galatians 6:4, (MSG)
