God seeks hyper-me! Romans 8:31
Romans 8:31 ‘If God is for us, who can be against us?’
I have arrived back home from my amazing trip to Singapore and Malaysia and now look forward to my body clock joining me! Wide awake last night till 3am; so I got some unplanned prayer and reflection done, mostly around my calling.
As a husband and father I have a primary calling to my family, to invest in their lives. As a worker for Christ I have a calling to leadership, and of late, leadership within the global context. And last night I wrestled with how the two fit together. Leadership within the global context involves travel, time away from my family, which in the extreme is contrary to my primary calling. I certainly didn’t solve this challenge last night, but as I read Romans 8:31 I am confident that both callings can co-exist. Why?
The Greek behind ‘If God is for us’ literally translates to God wanting much, much more for me. In fact ‘for’ in the greek is ‘hyper’, God wants me to not just be mundane, average Mark Brown, but God wants me to be class A, amazing, hyper-Mark Brown!! God has an amazing plan for my life and my job is to draw close to the one who has the plan.
So as I look at my two callings of family and work, though in my mind I cannot see how both can flourish, I am confident that through God, all things are possible!
God wants me to shine for His glory!
