Judges 6:15 – 16 And he said to him, “Please, Lord, How can I save Israel? Behold, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.” And the Lord said to him, “But I will be with you, and you shall strike the Midianites as one man.”
Are you feeling that way? Do you feel as though you don’t have what it takes to do what you know God is calling you to do? Stop with the excuses! Just like God was with Gideon, He will be with you! If He has called you to do something, He isn’t just going to leave you alone to do it, He will go with you. As the old saying goes, God doesn’t call the “qualified”, He qualifies the called! It can be tough being the “least” and then being called to step up, but that is how God gets the glory! If He has called you to it He will go with you and He will give you everything you need to do it! It’s not about you, it is about Him, if you keep telling yourself that it will get easier to focus on Him instead of yourself and your fears.
Focus on God’s power in your life and all He has done, is doing, and will do in and through you if you allow Him to! God created you so He knows full well what you are capable of doing, that is why He chose you! Don’t let fear stand in your way! Rise up and move forward knowing that He is by your side and He has equipped you to do what He is asking. You can do it! The gift is already within you, you just need to allow Him to bring it out of you! He loves you and He has a purpose for your life that you need to fulfill and it all begins by trusting Him to give you all you need to do it! I have to admit that it always freaks me out a bit when He has me write something like this because it usually means He is about to take me out of my comfort zone and will have me do something that I don’t feel qualified to do, but ……. let’s do this! Let’s commit today to do whatever it is He is asking! Let’s allow Him to empower us with His Spirit and commit to being all we can be and are called to be for Him, right here, right now! You can know that you’ve got this because He will go with you! He will give you the words to say, the strength to stand, the talent to do ~ whatever it is He is calling you to do! His best is yet to come!
