“But God, are you sure?”
God has been protecting you. Things that didn’t work out, sudden inconveniences were all a part of God’s master plan for your life, to get you into the position that He wants you to be in.
Trust that the rejection was not because of you being unqualified and it was not because the other party was not interested, God’s sovereignty blocked it because that is not where He wants you in this season.
You are called to a certain people which requires you to be in a certain place. Trust that when God says move… it is what is best and that it will all work out, though it may not look like it right now.
This morning The Lord brought me to the story of Gideon, chapter 6 verses 11-40. God anointed and appointed Gideon to be Judge over Israel. Gideon did not feel adequate, he did not feel prepared, he did not feel like he was the best choice for the job but he is the one God chose.
God loves choosing the lowly, meek, and humble at heart. He can trust them not to steal His glory. Gideon within chapter 6 said that he was the least in His family. God also love choosing those who appear to be insignificant to others. Can you identify with Gideon? I believe so. God wants you to find your identity in Him and to trust that He is calling you today. He knows that you may feel insignificant, ill prepared, unqualified but God says that He qualifies those he chooses. He has called you to be a leader, a voice to the people. God has entrusted you to talk on His behalf, to share His decrees, warnings and messages and you must follow through. In regards to, the parable of the talents within the Bible, The Lord expects us to use the gifts he has given us for the multiplication and increase of His kingdom. To reiterate this point, the book of Timothy tells us to be good stewards of the gifts Go has given us.
It is not that you were unqualified for that job, or that other position that did not work out, it was simply that God wants you in a place where you can exercise and flow in the gifts, he has given you for the advancements of His Kingdom. It is time to be Kingdom focused and to be committed to the call and commission of The Lord. All you have to do is… follow The Lord, step out on faith and do whatever You believe the Lord is calling you to do at this time. He will make a way, orchestrate paths, keep you from the wrong people and connect you with the right ones. Trust His leadership. God is trying to get you in a certain position so that He can use you like He would like.
You may be asking, “but God, are you sure? Are you sure you want to use me, in this way, at this place?” Essentially that is what Gideon asked God, numerous times within chapter 6 of Judges and God being patient and kind answered Him each time, reassuring him that He was sure. Gideon asked for confirmation again and again and God gave it again and again. God is good, loving, kind and patient; slow to anger. Ask Him for confirmation if you need it, and then step out in faith and into the position He is calling you to. God is calling you to a new place of leadership, a new place of influence.
Remember why you were chosen (you love God, you are humble, and you are lowly at heart) and stay that way. Stay humble. Stay lowly at heart. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, even as He leads you and establishes you in your new place of influence.
“But God, are you sure?” Yes He is sure. He chooses you.
Doubt can be a hindrance to you moving forward and becoming all that God has called you to be. You have to trust that God is good and that He has a good future and a hope for you. Trust that He has placed good gifts inside of you and that He is calling you to boldly operate in them, now.
Decreeing many blessing,
With a lot of love,
Gideon become Israel’s Judge
