God is calling you UP, He’s not in the business of calling you OUT.
Jer. 29.11 (NKJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Calling you up into your IDENTITY.
Calling you up into your DESTINY.
Calling you up into His ABILITY.
Psa. 139.14 (TNIV) I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; IDENTITY your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psa. 139.15 (TNIV) My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
Psa. 139.16 (TNIV) your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. DESTINY
Psa. 139.17 (NKJV) How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
Psa. 139.18 (NKJV) If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. His ABILITY
Jer. 1.4 (NKJV) Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying:
Jer. 1.5 (NKJV) “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; IDENTITY Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” DESTINY
Jer. 1.6 (NKJV) Then said I: “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”
Jer. 1.7 (NKJV) But the LORD said to me: “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Jer. 1.8 (NKJV) Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD. His ABILITY
Jer. 1.9 (NKJV) Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.
Jer. 1.10 (NKJV) See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.”
Ex. 3.4 (NKJV) So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” IDENTITY.
Ex. 3.5 (NKJV) Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”
Ex. 3.6 (NKJV) Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God.
Ex. 3.7 (NKJV) And the LORD said: “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.
Ex. 3.8 (NKJV) So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites.
Ex. 3.9 (NKJV) Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.
Ex. 3.10 (NKJV) Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” DESTINY
Ex. 3.11 (NKJV) But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
Ex. 3.12 (NKJV) So He said, “I will certainly be with you. His ABILITY And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”
Jesus… IDENTITY, DESTINY, His ABILITY
