So often the realization of God’s call on my life is overwhelming, intimidating, and nerve wrecking. How can I ever do this with such limited understanding, health issues, and knowing I’m so far from perfect? Then God clearly says, I will guide you, I will strengthen you, and I will accomplish MY work through you. Just keep surrendering and praying “Thy will, not my will be done.”
I’ve been a minister of the gospel for nearly 24 years. Not one day have I felt qualified, in control, or capable of accomplishing everything in front of me. I have realized that I’ve been called to a God sized mission. A mission that apart from divine intervention is doomed to fail.
Remember it’s not about you, but what you are willing to let God do through you. None of us have it all together or figured out. And we’ve not been called to figure it all out. We’ve been called to trust and obey God every step of the way to work things out. You will never get all together, but God has promised to hold you together forever.
“Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:5
