We often hear, the worst regret is not the mistakes we make but the things we don’t get done. Yet often a time, we ignore the longings of our heart until it is too late. In many occasions, we think of ourselves as not good enough or not worthy of whatever calling is burning in our spirit.
You start thinking of others that you think will do it, or can do it better than you even before you try, or who knows more people than you do and the list is long. The truth is, when God calls you to do anything He equips you specifically to do that thing. When you don’t take a step and do it, you are living in disobedience to God no matter how humble you think you are. It could be that God is calling you to do things that are too big for you and you see no way out. It is disobedience to not take a step because you think big things are for those you think more advantaged than you. In God’s sight, no one is in a better than you. That’s why He has called you. He is not calling your ability. He is calling your availability for Him to use you. Humility is saying yes Lord and moving into whatever He is putting into your heart without regard of what anyone will think or say about you except God himself. Do not compare yourself to anyone or compete with anyone. Do not be jealous of anyone nor seek to sabotage another so that you look better than they. Do not focus on those that think you can’t or you are not the right person or those who do unfair things to get ahead. All those are distractions and you focusing on those is a waste of your time and energy. Just be aware and focus on your calling. Help those God has placed into your life to develop into their calling because by doing so you are building the kingdom of God. Do not look down on anyone but extol one another and encourage one another. Everyone has a unique calling yet seeming similar sometimes. Do not wait for someone else to do what God is placing in your heart to do. Do it yourself because He will be with you.
Exodus 4:15, (NKJV)
15 Now you shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth. And I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will teach you what you shall do.
