Pastor Michael Todd preaches on focusing on your calling


Transformation Church


Pastor Michael Todd delivered another powerful message in the sixth week of the “Cuffing Season” series. This Sunday was all about focusing on your calling instead of the comments. If you have struggled to silence the noise and opinions of others this message is for you.

As always listen for yourself and see what stands out, below are a few notes.


  1. The fruit of the Spirit should be obvious, not obscure
  2. You don’t get deliverance without discipline
  3. No Discipline + No Discernment = Destruction
  4. Compassion + Conviction = New Commitment
  5. God talks to nobodies to change things for everybody
  6. Stop ignoring the nudge from the Holy Spirit
  7. You don’t need a title, you need a task
  8. The anointing is not for an announcement, it’s for action
  9. Every start has an enemy in secret
  10. The moment you commence, get ready for the comments
  11. What “they” comment does not affect your calling
  12. The comments first question your: 1. Actions 2. Authenticity 3. Assurance 4. Ability 5. Assets
  13. My first response to comments is to reach heaven through prayer
  14. Master the art of fulfilling your calling in the midst of comments
  15. God’s confidence is our capability is higher than our current capacity
  16. You only engage in the comments when you’re not engaged in a great work
  17. Your commitment has to be consistent
  18. Comments are a trap for you to lower your character
  19. The criteria to comment: 1. Committed to Christ 2. Connection to me 3. Compassion for others
  20. The criteria to correction: 1. Committed to Christ 2. Connection to me 3. Compassion for others
  21. Turn the comments off to anything that’s hindering your calling
  22. Fulfilling your calling in the midst of comments takes courage


He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. (Proverbs 25:28)

 And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. (Nehemiah 1:3)

And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven (Nehemiah 1:4)

So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days. And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon. (Nehemiah 2:11-12)

And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work. (Nehemiah 2:16)

Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach. (Nehemiah 2:17)

Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work. (Nehemiah 2:18)

Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone[a] in the hand of Zerubbabel?” (Zechariah 4:10)

But when Sanballat the Horonite, Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the Arab heard about it, they mocked and ridiculed us. “What is this you are doing?” they asked. “Are you rebelling against the king?” (Nehemiah 2:19)

“If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
