Ephesians 3:7-8 MSG
“This is my life work: helping people understand and respond to this Message. It came as a sheer gift to me, a real surprise, God handling all the details. When it came to presenting the Message to people who had no background in God’s way, I was the least qualified of any of the available Christians. God saw to it that I was equipped, but you can be sure that it had nothing to do with my natural abilities.”
God began to speak to me last year about me personally connecting with others. I’ve always relied on my husband or others to begin and carry the conversation, but I could feel God gently giving me a nudge to do it myself. I’ve never been a great conversationalist, and I do genuinely struggle when starting a conversation with someone new.
When I began this journey, I felt very unqualified. I was nervous, awkward and really had to depend on God to give me courage and the right words to speak. Looking back over the last six months, I can see that God was equipping me with what I needed to grow during the process.
Oftentimes we feel as though we aren’t qualified enough to do the work that God has called us to. I have learned though that if He calls you to it, there is always a reason. Nothing He does is by mistake, and He knows everything about you. Training and preparing now could be exactly what you need for a season in a few years time.
Isaiah 46:10 tells us “Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.” God knows exactly what He is doing, so when He called and chose you for a task, You can be sure He will equip you with what you need to accomplish it.
Prayer: God, I am thankful that I can place my life into Your faithful hands. The task before me is daunting, but I rest assured in You today, knowing that You have prepared me for it.
