We’ve all grappled with the question of God’s calling at one time or another. Today we return to our look at what Paul has to say about calling in Galatians 1:15-16.


But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother's womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles…


If we break this verse down, here is what it looks like:


Because God: Set Paul apart--> Called him by grace-> God is pleased--> to reveal Christ IN Paul =

So that Paul could: Preach Him among the Gentiles.

In all of this, it is what God is doing in the midst of a single life that echoes through the ages. Paul is invited to participate, but God is the One who is working, setting, calling and revealing. When God works in us, it comes out in what we do and say, in choices we make and the passions we pursue. It is God's revelation of Christ in us that is our true purpose and calling.


How do I know my calling?


How do I find my purpose? What a simple yet challenging question. When I respond to God, He will be pleased to reveal Christ in me. It is through the revelation work of Christ in me that God will bring out His purpose for me. I don't have to come up with it or beat my head against a rock to figure it out. God reveals; I respond. Large or small, my purpose is to reflect Christ and let Him work through my life as it is--including my role as a military spouse.


For all of us, God's calling encompasses what we do, whether we are active duty military or the families that support them. On the battlefield, in the office, or in the home, the heart of His calling is to respond as He reveals His Son in us.
 
I love the way this concept is phrased in The Message:


“No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing” (Ephesians 2:8-10 The Message).


As believers associated with the military, we are called for a purpose and called on purpose.
With deep gratitude, I pray:


Lord, thank You for giving me a holy purpose in life. Worth and significance far beyond what I can count, You have set me apart. How amazing to know that it gives You true joy to reveal Christ in and through my life as a military wife. Help me to understand what this really means in the living of my days. I often flit from one task to another without much awareness of Your revealing work in my character or activities. 
So powerful, this great set-apart mystery. Enable me to follow Paul’s example as You continue to reveal Your Son in me.  Too often, my thoughts are only on the tasks and needs of my day.  I need to remember that Your grace is more important than my abilities, or lack thereof. My calling is simply to respond as You reveal Christ in me each day. 


As you meditate on this today, ask yourself: Have I been faithful to God in allowing Him to reveal Himself in me, or have I just been busy?
