The calling is not the assignment; the calling is the preparation for the assignment. When you are called, get ready, because that is the time that God is going to prepare. Today on A Study In The Word, Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and panel discuss how the Lord prepares His children for the work that needs to be done. He reminds us of the near destruction of Israel, coming out of forty years under King Saul; and now David, who was God’s choice from the beginning, is to be king. The people came with joy, with an understanding of the times; they knew now what they were to do. Brother Swaggart likens this obedience to God’s elect today. When the Spirit of God finds the vessels that are to be used, it doesn’t take the organization of hundreds of thousands, for it is God’s Spirit who anoints the men and women of God to get the work of the Lord done.
