The Mantle

30 Dec

The Mantle…

Now when you were a child, your parents bought you clothes. Most of the time they bought you clothes that were a few sizes too large because they knew you were growing and you would fit into them eventually.

Believers do that too! They start out their walk going for the heights, searching for their calling and aspiring to fulfill the Great Commission. But many believers after they mess up, or don’t see all they hope to see, they start lowering their expectations.

But your calling does not shrink, never. He is waiting for you to rise to it. Rise to your calling. Don’t give up the calling, give up the doubt. Believe what God’s plans are for your future. Believe a few sizes bigger than you are.

Believe you will become a person of victory, of righteousness, a person of the Spirit, of joy, of purity, of unstoppable love, walking in the power of the resurrection, because God will only give you a calling that is perfectly tailored a few sizes too big.

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called. Ephesians 4:1-4

Envision who you want to be in Jesus, put on the calling that the Lord has given you, and rise to it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
