Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts-- to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship (Exodus 31:1-5).
Bezalel was called by God to perform a most important work for Himself. I am sure that Bezalel believed that he was naturally gifted with his hands to make fine crafts with gold, silver and bronze. He probably did not associate it with God's work. But the scripture tells us that God chose him and filled him with the Spirit of God to enable him.
Does God call men and women into their vocation to fulfill His purposes? To fulfill that which needs to be accomplished throughout the world? Have you ever thought about how how many occupations there are in the world? How did that balance of interest among each human throughout the world happen? Did it just happen? Was it by chance that we have only so many doctors, only so many accountants, only so many geologists?
Friend, your interest in your vocation is not born of your own making. So many business people and even pastors have made the mistake of encouraging us who have a deep desire to walk with Christ in the workplace to pursue vocational ministry. To remove us from the marketplace where the greatest harvest is yet to occur would be to remove us from where God called us. Do not take this bait. Serve the Lord in the marketplace where he has gifted you and called you.
I almost made this same mistake when God drew me to Himself when I was 28 years old. I concluded that I must be called to being a pastor. I took steps to fulfill this by leaving my job and entering a Bible school for training. Upon completion I took a job as an assistant pastor in a church. But God's mercy allowed me to be removed from that position only three months into it. I was "forced back into business" where God wanted me in the first place. It was a great lesson. I was never cut out to be a pastor in a church, but a "pastor" in the marketplace.
