God’s Calling through Vision

What is my purpose? What is God calling me to do? These are some of the most common questions people ask about life. Sometimes we really want to hear from God about these, and God wants to instruct us. Jane from Armidale found herself in this disposition, and God spoke through Vision! She shares her experience to Robbo, Becci and Phil on Visionathon.

“I’ve come from a loving Christian family — wonderful husband of 38 years, lovely children. At the age of 28, I gave my life to the Lord, and we felt God’s calling to go to Darwin. Had an absolutely wonderful life up there. Joined a fantastic church. Came back. And I think that term, dormant Christian, sort of popped into my mind.

Awakened

We sort of pray here and there, and read the Bible and spits and spurts and things. And then

I found your radio station three years ago, and it just life changing!

Absolutely. I could go on and on, but just love everything about Vision. And it does so much for so many people.

On Sunday morning, we were having coffee and we’re talking about God’s calling. And I think many of us go through this.

God answering

What is? We are moving up to retirement, or refinement, and you sort of think, where does God want us to go? Stay or do missionary work overseas? Work with Him somewhere in the world or whatever.

We were just talking about it and then a sermon came on. Five minutes sermon. And it was in the background. And I said to my husband, ‘would you like to listen to it?’ He said, ‘yeah I’d love to.’

And we sat there and Pastor James McPherson was talking about God’s calling in your life, whether you should go and do missionary work, or work in the community somewhere else.

And then he (Pastor James) said, ‘but it’s okay’. It’s okay if you stay at home. Because God needs people to stay at home and work within your own community.

And we just looked at each other and

we knew that that was a direct word from God. That was our answer.”

“We were very teary. I said, I think God just spoke to us, then. Just us. I wondered if other people heard that. But it was a real answer to prayer for us.”

Phil added, “You can imagine, it’s almost, as you say, God turned the radio off for the entire country. And just you guys were the only ones that heard it.

But the reality, is

there were probably a bunch of other people hearing it going, oh, that’s an answer to a question I’ve been asking too. God works in amazing ways.”

Jane agrees,

“Your radio station is changing so many lives. It does so much for so many people and we just bless you all.”

Transformed in Prison through Vision

One devotional, and Vision Christian Radio. In the hands of someone held captive in prison. That’s how God met Mel from Casino, and now many others through Mel. But that’s the power of God’s Word, and He CAN do immeasurably more than what we ask or imagine!

Vision180 — Great Influence on Youth

36 out of top 40 songs have sexually explicit lyrics or swear words in them. How do we keep our younger generation off that?

We’ve had many stories over the years of Vision where children have felt led to give their hard saved pocket money to the work of God through Vision. Today we heard from two in very close succession!

Impossible Provisions? Not with the God of the Impossible!

Crossing four state borders during lockdown. A house to stay in when there’s none available to rent. How are these even possible? But Ian found that God was truly the God of the impossible as he experiences miracle after miracle.

The ‘More’ Pandemic

Our society has bred consumers and addicts. We want more. More materialism, more money, more status, more likes and followers on social media, more knowledge. We also fill up our schedules. We are on a fruitless mission to fill the gaping hole in the heart. This ‘more’ pandemic has been plaguing us for a while.

The Real Purpose of Thanksgiving

Did you know? The first American president set up Thanksgiving in America for giving thanks to God? But why should we give thanks to God?
