It’s been a while since I’ve shared my ‘fillings’. I kind of pick and choose what to share while I’m in that season and for the past few days I’ve been in awe of how God choses the qualified.
What does it mean to be qualified? To be officially recognized as being trained to perform a particular job.
Growing up I’ve never been recognized as being good in sports, like softball. I feel like I was always the last few to be called on a team and I never liked playing because I felt like I wasn’t good enough. There were people on the team that obviously knew what they were doing and then there was me. LOL!
It’s the same when I’m offered a job position and there’s people that worked hard with their degrees apply for the same position. Opportunities to speak and there’s people that have years of experience to do so and yet God calls the one that used to walk with her head down.
One of my favorite stories was when Moses was called to speak to God’s people and he had a speech impediment! Now it would make sense for someone that spoke well to have the job that Moses was given but God thought he would be perfect for the job.
So how does God qualify us? Well for one he doesn’t judge us the same as others.
‘…For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”-1Samuel 16:7
I believe when we’re humble, we’re teachable and with that type of character it puts us in places we could only imagine. I think another thing about being qualified is that we can’t think of ourselves how others think of us. If God says we’re trained to do a particular job we should already have the faith to support it.
So the next time you go after that big thing, whatever it is , know that you are qualified!
I’m so glad He doesn’t view us in the same lens as others and in spite of
