Has God called you to Nations and you are struggling with where to start?
God called me to Nations at 15 years old and for years since I struggled with how and what exactly the call looked like. It wasn’t till years later that I understood that every global call must start with a local impact. I actually run a livestream on my app where I explain this in greater detail which you can download here
IT ALL STARTS IN JERUSALEM
The call to Nations always begins with identifying your Jerusalem.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8
A global call always begins with a local impact. The power of the bomb is not measured by the explosion but by the impact. Your National and international call is a direct consequence of your local stewardship. This is a truth a lot of people don’t wish to hear. They want to go to the ends of the earth but they have not yet determined their Jerusalem.
HUMILITY IS NECESSARY
Humility is the disposition for which God will promote you to the Nations.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
God doesn't need our help to be God. And He gives grace to the humble. If grace is the supernatural endowment of the Holy Spirit upon the every day believer then it is your and my job to live every day letting God be the super in our natural lives. When we try to be super for God, we strain soulish muscles in an attempt to be something that God can be all by Himself. The more natural I am, the more super God is.
Pride is being more than or less than who God says you are. Living above yourself is just as proud to God as living beneath yourself. Most people are proud in the 'living beneath yourself' kind of pride. We call this pride false humility. It is more dangerous and more difficult to deliver someone who underestimates themselves than it is to deliver someone who overestimates themselves.
'Underestimating pride' is one where the person opts for complete and total subservience in a sacrificial way all stemming from a martyr spirit. They sacrifice, sacrifice sacrifice not realising that God is calling for obedience not sacrifice (See 1Samuel 15). Once a person has convinced themselves that this is humility, a spirit of witchcraft comes to drive them to delusions to which any attempt to castigate them is treated as an attack to their humility. In 1 Samuel 15, Saul who opts for this form of pride is called an idolater and a witch because it is possible to worship your own sense of humility. It is possible that one can be so aware of their pride that they overcompensate with a sacrilegious form of humility which comes off as arrogant to God.
The 'who am I' and 'I am not worthy' crowd is not pleasing to God. Yet people who opt for this stance, hide themselves in the background saying things like, ' I don't want to be seen!', 'I just want God to be glorified' and in their hiding they turn all the attention from God as people now become a search party for them. The so-called 'nameless faceless' generation seems harmless and profound but if you hide yourself and call that humility, everyone who you intend to be searching for God are now searching for you and there's nothing humble about taking the attention from God!
So they inquired further of the LORD, "Has the man come here yet?" And the LORD said, "Yes, he has hidden himself among the baggage."
1 Samuel 10:21
Humility doesn't hide, it shows!
