Now what?

1 Thessalonians 5:24 The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.

unqualifiedYou just got a new job – how exciting!  It seems like something you can do, no problem.  You got up early this morning, spent your time getting ready, and headed to your new adventure.  Upon arrival, you started orientation, then training.  By now it is mid-afternoon and the realization just hit you: you have no idea what you are doing.  What was I thinking?  Why did I think I could do this job?  It is way out of my skill level.  I am not  qualified for this kind of work.  I don’t think I can do it.  Now what?

Not a great feeling is it? No one likes to be in a situation where we feel under-qualified.  If we would have known it was going to require these skills, maybe we wouldn’t have signed up in the first place.  And for many people, they don’t sign up, they don’t take the job. Worse yet, they don’t step into the calling that God has placed on their lives.  It seems too scary, too out there.  They don’t feel prepared, qualified, equipped, or remotely ready.  And it keeps them from walking in their calling.

No one likes to start a journey only to feel lost.  We don’t like to start a task that we aren’t sure we can complete.  Here’s the thing: The one who calls you is faithful and HE will do it!  It’s not all up to you.  He is the caller and the equipper.  Listen, if He called you to it, He will get you through it.  You may not have what it takes, but He does.  He is faithful!  So don’t shy away from what He is calling you to.  Don’t be afraid that you won’t be able to do it.  Take a step of faith today and find out how faithful your God is!

*Has fear of being unqualified kept you from walking in your calling?
