On July 7 of this year, The Lord said one word to me “Re calibrate”. Like every time before that when He spoke life changing word to me, I looked up the definition of re-calibrate to make sure I understood what I was to do.
Re calibrate: To make small changes to an instrument so that it measures accurately. To change the way you do or think about something.
So, I immediately began to pray for the grace to re-calibrate. My answer came in the form of a question. “Can an instrument re-calibrate itself without the master?” I repented and invited The Lord to re-calibrate me. I surrendered all to Him who knows best.
I had no idea the process of being re-calibrated would be so painful. I lost longtime connections from my inner circle. I changed my mind and all my presumptions about my calling and how God should use me. I know for sure that nothing is mine, I am only a steward. So instead of spending money freely after a give my tithe and offering, I ask The Lord what He wants me to do with his money.
I am still in the process of being re-calibrated, and I can see a brand new relationship with The Lord. A new level of intimacy based on abiding in his love, seeking his face passionately. I can see now that I put limits on myself that God never intended. I trust God and trust the process.
Now I pray: Lord thank you for saving me. You called me with a holy calling, not according to my works but according to your own purpose and grace which was given to me in Christ Jesus before time eternal. You foreknew me and predestined me to be conformed to the image of your son Jesus. You then called me, justified me, now Lord glorify me. 2 Timothy 1: 9; Romans 8: 29-30.
Can you hear Him? He is calling us to come up higher. Will you?
