Step Out and Find Out
People often ask me how to find their place in ministry. Some spend many years waiting to hear a voice or to receive supernatural direction. I tell them to step out and find out.
Early in my journey with God, I wanted to serve Him. I felt He had placed a call on my life but I didn't know exactly what to do, so I tried different opportunities that were available.
A lot of them didn't work out for me, but I kept trying different ones until I found an area that fit me. I finally came alive inside when I had an opportunity to share the Word with people. I found joy in teaching, and it was obvious I was good at it. I knew then that I had found my place in ministry.
Sometimes the only way to discover God's will is to practice what I call "stepping out and finding out." If you have prayed about a situation and don't seem to know what you should do, take a step of faith. Don't be afraid of making a mistake. Step out and God will guide you.
For me personally, I had been leading in various areas of ministry for years. My heart has always been singles because I was single and knew the need to help churches reach out to us. But I also loved greeting, leadership, women, marketing, etc. But to keep things simple, I started with singles ministry, allowing the Lord to expand my territory later. With my focus being on singles while working my secular job, the Lord kept opening doors. Then there came a day to totally step out in faith, leaving my full-time secular job and doing full-time ministry.
