One of the biggest questions of the Christian life is, What is God calling me to do?
I often hear young people ask this question, but the truth is that I ask it of myself on an almost-daily basis. What about today, God? What do you want from me right now? My dream is to align my heart, my life, with the heartbeat of my Savior.
I’m learning that God is just as concerned about the process as He is about the result. This realization has opened my eyes to the continuing beauty of searching out God’s will through life’s many different seasons. My viewpoint has changed as I’ve begun to embrace these questions and this journey, not lament my way through it.
I was privileged to join a group of writers to create an ebook on vocation and calling. The book is called Hinneh, which is a Hebrew word. In narrative hinneh often marks a change in viewpoint.
In Isaiah 6, God calls Isaiah to his place of ministry, among a people who are seeking less and less of God’s guidance and direction in their lives. Isaiah’s answer to God’s calling is to say “Here am I!” (Isaiah 6:8), with “hinneh” being the Hebrew word used in the original text. May our response to God’s calling be the same. -Tyler Braun
In the book, I share a parable (that’s so like me, isn’t it? 🙂 ) about a playground and a father and, well, some really neat things about what God actually expects of us.
Our hope and prayer is that this ebook will be a tool that encourages and strengthens Believers as they learn to answer the question of what God is calling them to each day.
This ebook is completely free. You don’t have to enter your email address or sign up for anything at all. It is simply our gift to you.
