3. A calling from God will often be accompanied by confirmation
Many times God will confirm what He’s asking us to do through situations and even through other people. If you’re unsure about a potential calling in your life right now, ask God to make it clear to you by sending you some sort of confirmation. He doesn’t want you to be confused, so don’t hesitate to ask Him for wisdom. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-21, James 1:5)
4. A calling from God will always result in His being glorified
While our callings can and often do benefit us, whether by growing us or by blessing us, ultimately any God-given calling will point back to Him. If your calling seems to be all about your happiness and success with no thought, thanks, or credit being given to God, it probably isn’t from Him. (1 Corinthians 10:31, 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12)
At the end of the day, the most important thing to remember when figuring out your calling is obedience to God. If you’re seeking His will with an obedient heart, He will make it clear to you, and when He makes it clear, I encourage you to do whatever He’s calling you to do right away.
The sooner we obey, the sooner He can start working things out for His ultimate glory and our ultimate good.
