Finding Your Place in God's Mission

Updated on June 8, 2015

I want to be Peter. I hope that you don’t have a noble thought about me because I’m not talking about the Apostle Peter, I’m talking about Peter from the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Peter was tricked into going to Narnia. I see the scene in my mind from the movie when Edmund opens the door to the Wardrobe so they can hide from whoever is chasing them in the house. Then Peter finds himself in the land of Narnia. Peter’s purpose was given to him. He was to lead the battle against the White Witch and then be the High King and rule Narnia with his brother and sisters.


It feels at times that my purpose, my calling, isn’t given to me. I have to go searching. I want God to give me a burning bush experience. You know, something I can just walk into. Similar to a wardrobe. In my experience with God, I don’t get that.


There are a couple of different ways I can approach this. The first is the lie: That God doesn’t love me and that I don’t have a calling. If I had time, I would list all the ways that God has shown me love over the years and the roles I have played in his mission, so I know that isn’t the case. The other way I can approach this is by seeking out God’s will. We all know that the Bible says “seek and you will find.”


I’m certain of one thing, God has a plan for me. God has a place for me in his church. And it goes without saying that you, the reader, have a place as well. All I have to do is read I Corinthians 12 and I get reminded of this. This passage is filled with reminders that we are all members of the church, we are all important and have a role to play. If you are struggling to see God’s place for you, then I challenge you to read through that chapter again.


So, how can you find God’s will for your life? That is the question of the age! And if you are asking that question, you are in good company. And even if you are not asking that question, I’m sure there are other questions you are asking. Is it time to expand your ministry? Is God moving you to something different? Who are those that God has placed in your life that he wants to reach through you? What does God want your children, grandchildren, and others kids in your influence to know? How does God want you to minister at your church? Home? Work? School? Campus? Etc. And I’m sure there are tons of other questions out there that you are asking God.


In Exodus 3 we read that God is coming down to free Israel. He also sends Moses. It is same today, Jesus in Acts 1:8 told us we are his witnesses. And throughout Acts God is guiding the apostles. My goal is to help you find your God given place in this world and how to hear his voice helping you along. The subject of my next blogs will be about how to hear God. Will you join in me praying for God’s mission to be done here on Earth? To pray for God’s plan for you?

Give me some feedback!

How often do you try to listen to what God is saying to you?

See results

What are some questions that you are asking God?

Thanks for giving me your thoughts
