Don’t do what the world expects, do what God is calling you to do. I think most people are sort of clueless to the fact that they’re not taking how serious it is to make sure we are honoring God with our character. We all struggle with this at times. The beautiful thing is when you do what He asks it’s considered righteousness and a righteous woman will avail much.
When we don’t do what we absolutely know to do it is considered sin. If you’re still undisciplined in your walk with Christ and not making Him your first priority in life, this is incongruent with your calling. Sadly many women say they want a special ministry and to be used by God, but won’t actually do the “right” thing so God will prosper their calling.
Listen if you have a high calling on your life then you will need to live with high integrity with God and others. Galations 5:1 says, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” Otherwise it’s just not going to happen. The Lord wants you to prove to Him you take your calling seriously and if you’re not in right living, you’re showing Him you’re not fully ready.
God is more interested in your character that leads to your calling than He is in your comfort. Let’s be willing to do the hard thing for Christ. Isn’t it all we can do considering all that He has done for us.
