Exodus 31:6b (ESV): "And I have given to all able men ability, that they may make all that I have commanded you."
God doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called. Don't wait for the ability to step into the ministry God is calling you to, step into the ministry and God will give you the ability to fulfill it. We walk by faith in everything.
Moses was told here that all that God had commanded him to make would be done by specific people He has appointed and equipped for the task. Whether it was metal workers, seamstresses, perfume and ointment compounders, God had called them all and He would equip them for the tasks at hand.
So often we are estimating our ministry abilities based on the natural man rather than the supernatural God who appoints us. Lots of gifting comes in time as you walk by faith trusting God to show up. It is a wonderful thing to know that if He doesn't you will fail. That's when you know you're truly walking in a calling when you have to depend on God in order for anything good to come out of it.
Ask yourself today if there are things that you are supposed to be doing that your not. Have you limited what you will allow God to do through you because of your natural abilities? Turn to the Lord today and say yes to His calling and then start walking by faith. It will never feel comfortable but you will have peace because you're walking in His will.
Father, we thank You for all that You have done in our lives. Help us not to limit what You can continue to do base on our underestimations of how You can use us. You can use a donkey thus you can certainly use us. Give us faith to trust You and hearts to obey you. We commit ourselves to You even now, speak to us Lord for Your servants are listening in Jesus name we pray, amen.
