Reach for your higher Calling

(Philippians 3:14 NKJV)¬†“I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”


There is a high calling upon your life, the fulfilment of which should be your major preoccupation. This calling is very unique to your purpose. God prioritizes this calling above every other thing in your life. His saving grace was revealed to you in order to fulfill it. You will never be able to walk in it until you are positioned in Christ Jesus.

God expects you to discover this calling and reach for it with everything you have been given. You must be willing to set aside every other thing so that you can attain it. It does not have to be a five-fold ministry, but you must understand that it is just as important as a five-fold ministry.

The Word¬†press¬†suggests that you will have to exert some pressure. The devil is going to fight your high calling because he does not want you to go for it. You have to run straight towards this goal to win the prize that God’s heavenly call offers in Christ Jesus.

Make up your mind that you will focus on your high calling so that God can get the glory He really deserves in your life. Never stop or quit until you fulfill it.


I am a man/woman of purpose created in God’s image to fulfill a unique destiny. I am fearfully, marvelously and wonderfully made. Therefore, I celebrate my uniqueness.

I have a revelation of my divine purpose. My gifts find adequate expression in life and they open great doors for me before great men. Every gift of God within me is constantly stirred up to release my destiny.

I am sensitive to the plan and counsel of God. I am strategically positioned in life for great success. I excel by the grace of God in all good things.

God predestined, justified, called and glorified me before the foundation of the world. There is a blue print from God for my life. I work with God, the Master builder. Therefore, I do not build in vain. I have a clear vision. I do not run wild in life. I am not easily discouraged, but I follow through with the plan of God for my life.

I am diligent in my business so I always stand before kings and not before ordinary men. I am a great blessing to my generation. My life is patterned after God’s original intention for me. All things are working together for my good. My future is bright and secure because God is on my side.
