It gets tough when you are doing something your Father has indeed call you to fulfill, but for some reason, you cannot explain, he calls us out of it. From what you could tell, everything was going well, and from all appearances, the Kingdom of our God was advancing, but still, you are called out. Huh? How come?
Well, the only thing I can assure you of is that when He calls you out of one work, He is completely faithful to call you into something better! I am confident of that. Take for instance Abraham. He was against idolatry and making idols, but that was not his crusade. Because of his faith, the Lord led him into a promised land, into great possessions and into the lineage that brought us our Messiah.
Our Father’s call on your life is always to something better — keep that in mind when He is calling you out of your current task! He is calling you into the joys and reality of eternal life and a purity of life and spirit; He is calling you to walk with Him with a pure heart and sincere faith. He is inviting you to enter a life of service and usefulness that will bring glory to Himself as God. He calls all of us into the sweetest fellowship possible on this earth: the fellowship of the family of God!
So, if your Father takes away the old, wrinkled, beat-up dollar bill we clutch so desperately, it is because He wants to exchange it for the whole federal mint, the entire treasury! He is saying, “I have in store for you all the resources of heaven. Help yourself!”
So quit focusing on what you have lost, and set your heart to all that He has in store for you!!
