Denser Alloy: Equipped for Your Calling

“Now may the God of peace…equip you with all you need for doing His will. May He produce in you…every good thing that is pleasing to Him.” ~Hebrews 13:20-21

There’s something awesome about knowing you were created for a special purpose, and further, knowing your purpose. Further still, there’s something absolutely magnificent about knowing you were specially equipped to live out your purpose. I remember being gripped by an exchange near the end of the movie iRobot. If you’ve seen the movie, you know that V.I.K.I., the supercomputer, began to interpret laws in a way that allowed robots to kill some humans for the greater good of saving most humans from themselves. But, let’s get to the good stuff. To disable the supercomputer, someone would have to reach past a security field corrosive enough to cut through the metal of other robots. Sonny, a robot helping the humans, had the following exchange with the supercomputer: Denser Alloy Sound Clip

V.I.K.I. (supercomputer): I will not disable the security field. Your efforts are futile.
Sonny: Do you think we were all created for a purpose? I’d like to think so.
[looks at his hand]
Sonny: Denser alloy. My father gave it to me. I think he wanted me to kill you.
[reaches through security field unharmed]

Those four sentences have always stuck with me. “Do you think we were all created for a purpose? I’d like to think so. Denser alloy. My Father gave it to me.” You were chosen, not just to complete some work, but for a specific work. Better yet, you’ve been equipped to complete exactly what your Father has chosen you to do. Romans 8:28-30 reminds us that when we are called according to God’s purposes, He doesn’t just call us; He equips us! Further, 2 Timothy 3:16-17 gives excellent insight into one of the ways we become equipped: by the Word of God!

You’ve already been called; now, study to show yourself approved! God has already equipped you with the life circumstances you need to live out your calling. He’s already provided His Word. Your Father has already given you “denser alloy.” You’re already equipped; go ye therefore!

There’s a Calling on Your Life, and You’re Already Equipped

  1. When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me
    when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same
    comment. Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

    • hi, i’m sorry you’re having that problem. do u have a wordpress blog? i think u unsubscribe from comments in there by following a link. at the bottom of the email you’ve gotten, you should see something that says, “Change your email settings at Manage Subscriptions” click the blue hotlink of “Manage Subscriptions” and uncheck the subscription to these comments then click save. hope that helps 🙂

  2. awe, thx, girl! i’ve enjoyed the time away from twitter, btw..i blab so much, tho…like i so wanna tweet so many thoughts i have as i worship n study, but God called me to a new thing, instead, which is kinda awesome. a mentor told me she writes down a response each time she spends time in the Word…so now, i’m using the notes function on YouVersion to respond to God’s Word. Easier to refer back to than a tweet, i sure miss some of u guys’ tweets, tho…always leading me to worship.
