Was something ever asked of you and felt unqualified for the job? Perhaps you thought they asked the wrong person, but it wasn’t so, it was you they asked.
I was approached recently to teach a large group of people and I felt unqualified, even though the subject was one that I loved. I made excuses on why I should not take the assignment. It would be a very long committment, I was not capable, I fumble often when I need to teach in Spanish, and the excuses kept coming. But the Lord confirmed to me that I should go ahead and do this, and to be honest, I did so out of honor and duty, not because I felt capable.
What happened surprised me. I gave the first teaching to the students, word got out and now there are more signing up. I continued to pray for the class and students, and the Lord began to give me teaching tactics, games and ideas for the group.
I know it’s not because I am capable, for I felt the least of the clan and knew there were others more qualified than I, but because I stepped out in faith and honor to the Lord, He has met me and encouraged me.
There have been times that certain things were asked of me, and have denied them because I felt incapable. What did I miss, what blessing did I miss out by not stepping out in faith?
I almost missed a blessing here for not teaching this class. The Lord desires to have us grow spiritually, and the only way to do that is to step out of our comfort zone and into His blessing.
What blessings have you turned down recently? Don’t make the same mistake I have many times. When you are challenged, take that step of faith and He will meet you and guide you.
