Dear Precious Friends,
It's time for us all to rise up and do what we can with the gifts God has given us. Listen to what He is calling us to do. Let's focus on what we CAN DO!!! God is looking for us to be obedient to what He is calling us to do. HERE WE ARE LORD... SEND US!
God called Moses to rescue His people from slavery in Egypt. But Moses felt his lack of speaking skills disqualified him from pursuing God’s plan. God saw it another way...
Oh what the Lord can do with a surrendered life. God is not looking for what you can do. God is looking for an obedient vessel that He can work through. THAT IS YOU AND I!!!!
Here we are Lord.. let us do our part to represent you in this broken world...PLEASE SEND ME!!
He loves that we are broken, He loves making us whole again. He asks those who love Him to love others the same way. To choose them. To be hope, show forgiveness.. His grace. He wants us to be willing to join Him in rescuing others!
So why don’t we?
There are reasons why when we hear God’s call, when we feel that gentle urging of God’s Spirit for us to make a bold step, take a risk, serve others, save a life, commit — we so often hold back.
It may be because we don’t feel qualified.
We think we lack the courage, the strength, the wisdom, the money, the experience, the education, the organization, the backing.
We feel like Moses when, from out of the burning bush, God called him to speak for him before Pharaoh. And Moses answered, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent… I am slow of speech and tongue… Please send someone else” (Exodus 4:10-13).
Not me, God... I'm afraid. Weak. Poor. Stupid.. Unqualified..
Not long ago, that is exactly how I would have responded.
But it has never been my desire to be afraid, to be unable to respond to God’s call. Is it yours? I doubt it. Just as God gave Moses exactly what he needed to accomplish great things, He will equip us in the same way.
Whatever He calls us to do, let's rise to the task. The world is broken.. It needs us. We can't stand by.. .
God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
Let's do what we can today to rise to the task God has called us to in a broken world that needs Jesus...
