Having faith in yourself might be the hardest hurdle when chasing your dreams or sharing your gifts. You will think you are not good enough. You might feel that you need to clean up your life before God can use you. There is good news for you. Except for Jesus, God never uses perfect people to accomplish His will.
You will not find one earthly perfect person in the Bible. (except Jesus)
I am reminded of Moses in the Old Testament. Moses was asked by God (burning bush) to go to Pharaoh to free the Israelites. I am sure Moses was overwhelmed by the calling. He began to give God all the reasons he was not adequate for the job. “I am poor in speech, please send someone else. Who am I to talk with Pharaoh? ” Exodus Chapter-4
But God told Moses that He would be with Him. He would help Him speak and teach Moses what to say.
When I began writing for this blog, I could come up with every reason not to start. For example, “I am not a good writer. I didn’t go to college. I have no experience with a blog. I have many flaws.” : ( (Just to name a few). If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, I am sure you have found grammar errors and poor writing. Writing a perfect blog is not my goal. My goal is to encourage couples in their marriages. I don’t have to have perfect writings to encourage! : )
It is easy to focus on our weaknesses instead of God’s strength within us.
I am thankful God is with me and will help me, whatever my calling may be.
God can use you right where you are at. He will be with you! He is not looking for perfect!
Such great news!
