The measure of the spirit – of inner light – that we are given is the measure intended by the Creator so that we may live out the intent for our time here. Ultimately the point is not to compare the “completeness” or “perfection” of our life in God to that of anyone else – including Christ Jesus – but rather to keep our focus on living out abundantly the measure we DO have. Thus it will grow, develop, mature as the Creator intends. Should a vocation run its course and a new direction develop, it will be part of the life Plan. It will be “right,” satisfying, perhaps challenging as new directions can be. But we will be guided; we can trust; we can be free.
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.
