Have you ever felt so inadequate?
Have you looked at what God has planned and direceted you to do and you feel like you are not good enough, if the answer is YES, Congratulations, you have got good company.
As humans, we were raised to believe in our ability. From earlier on in life, you are treated as you perform. If you are always the first position in class, everyone treats you like God gave you a specially designed brand new brain and as though the other pupils got a fairly used brain at creation.
The teachers treat you like you are special.
Your parents use you as a reference point to tell your siblings….see your sister, she is so good, why are you not like….so so so…
You leave university and the job prospects depend on your grades. Of course all solidly established companies want the best canditates….
Skills equal opportunities. ..
So then, what happens to the second class grades and third class grades?
What happens to those who are not so eloquent….? Thats the question, isnt it?
Let me show you what i found…
FINALLY, SOMEONE FINDS YOU EMPLOYABLE…..no matter your previous skills, your records of imperfection, your failed marriages, your wrong choices in life and the fact that when people look at you, you dont look the part…..GOD SEES THE POTENTIALS IN YOU , THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER BEEN VISUAL ENOUGH TO SEE.
EPHESIANS 3:10. 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. And so here I am, preaching and writing about things that are way over my head, the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ. My task is to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along. Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!
WO-HOOOOOO PAUL, the man we all admire for his wisdon has let it all out.
Its got nothing to do with him………I FEEL LIKE SCREAMIMG…..God saw to it that he got equipped for the task….Its got nothing to do with his eloquence and perfect speeches. He was the least qualified!!!!!!
Come on…if Paul did, who else…..assuming that Paul’s case was just a mistake, or shall i say a coincidence.
MOSES…..A STAMMERER……and a run away murderer….had a chat with God.
EXODUS 3:10-15 CEV .
Now go to the king! I am sending you to lead my people out of his country. But Moses said, “Who am I to go to the king and lead your people out of Egypt?” God replied, “I will be with you. And you will know that I am the one who sent you, when you worship me on this mountain after you have led my people out of Egypt.” Moses answered, “I will tell the people of Israel that the God their ancestors worshiped has sent me to them. But what should I say, if they ask me your name?” God said to Moses: I am the eternal God. So tell them that the Lord, whose name is “I Am,” has sent you. This is my name forever, and it is the name that people must use from now on.
You dont have to feel so scared of launching deep into what He has called you to do.
Those whose power started them off run out of steam pretty soon. When ypur source is THE INEXHAUSTIBLE…..then you are unquenchable, except of course, you stop yourself.
Meanwhile, can I remind us this, for those who need it. If you feel like you are self sufficient and just perfect and no one else is like you world over, no matter how fantastic that dream sounds, you have called yourself. You cant make happen what God has not commisioned….you stand the risk of failing woefully.
Its the humble that God makes HIs grace available unto..
God sends those whom He has chosen to send. His shortlisting criteria are different from that of your course teachers and your parents. The choosing comes before the qualification . HE ENABLES THOSE WHOM HE HAS APPOINTED……NOT APPOINT THE ENABLED.
