    2 Peter 1:10 KJVS
    Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

    Romans 12:2 KJVS
    And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

    John 21:21 KJVS
    Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do ?

    What am I to do Lord? The big question for each of us. What has God shown you? For many of us it's not one big thing or ministry but a day by day seeking of His face. Some were sent and some just went. Be certain that you are sent and don't just go. It has been said if you send yourself you will also have to anoint yourself. Denomination dead works.

    Romans 8:14 KJVS
    For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

    Has God told you what you are to do? He gives you the desires of your heart. No no, not some thing that you want. He does that too, but the real meaning of this is that He plants timed release seeds in your heart.

    At different times in our lives different desires will come forth. If you do not seek Him continually you may miss guidance. In their perfect time He makes them beautiful. Realizing we are many personalities in our life. Living this life brings changes to our nature. Twenty years ago would you know you today?

    For years I was supposed to run my own small business and I had the anointing to do that. The season has changed now and I'm seeking His face. I know partly that I am to write a book, books. I love to write. Writing is a joy to me. Especially when I am trying to encourage others. Of course what you do will not always be received by others. The anointing is not resident in everyone so they are not sent but just went. These will oppose you. We see that on this site.

    At the proper season the desire, desires, since there can be more than one, that were placed in your heart before you were knitted in your mother's womb, will blossom forth. Be careful not to stifle them.

    Some things I know to do. The major ones, to me that is, but God sees things differently. Every one wants to be used of God, to be a co-laborer with Him. Being obedient in the smallest thing is most important. Who has despised the day of small beginnings?

    I read many many testimonies of those that did a seemingly small deed at God's bidding yet great things came forth from them. A missionary to Africa gave a talk to a small gathering on a rainy bad weather day in Scotland. Discouraged at the low turnout he would have been cheered to know that a young David Livingstone was in that group and was gripped to serve in Africa. Obedience bore God Fruit.

    2 Corinthians 8:10-12 KJVS
    And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
    [11] Now therefore perform the doing of it ; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
    [12] For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.

    Finding out God's will for you at any stage of life is most important. If we can find His perfect will for us at any time He will certainly provide whatever else is required to accomplish the work. Not only does He give us the goal He provides every single thing required. Chiefly the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

    May each of us find that good and acceptable will of God to guide us in our continual quest to please Him.
