Equipped For Your Calling

Submitted by on October 22, 2012 – 1:56 pmNo Comment

Written By Lisa aka Trophy of Grace

 

It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.

Zechariah 4:6b (NLT)

Years ago I began praying bold prayers. Prayers such as; “My God use me. My God expand my territory.” The Holy Spirit in me began to give me visions, dreams, and direction for ministry. I asked Him to confirm what my giftings and talents were and to teach me how I could use them to glorify Him. He did reveal my giftings and talents, and even showed me how I had been using them all along and did not even know it.

I began walking out the visions and dreams that He put on my heart. However as The Holy Spirit reveals more bits and pieces of how He plans to grow me in my service to Him, fear and insecurity overwhelms my mind. I feel insufficient and inadequate for the calling our God has put on my heart. Often times I begin to focus on all my weaknesses and on how much more I still have to mature in Christ. I think about how much more I need to grow in the love of Christ; to love the way Jesus loves fully surrendered to God’s will and purpose even in the face of suffering, persecution, and betrayal seems unattainable at times. I begin to pay more attention to what I don’t have and what I am not; rather than looking at what I do have and who I am in Christ Jesus. I find that I am picking myself apart. As I keep on in this mindset I find myself freaking out, making excuses, and thinking about quitting.

After time in prayer and in God’s Word my faith is ignited and I am reminded; the Spirit of the Lord has equipped us with every spiritual gift we need to fulfill the calling and purpose He has for us. We have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers us who make us ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into us; we are self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency. (Philippians 4:13 Amplified Bible, 1 Corinthian 1:7)

There’s no need to freak out. We don’t need to be afraid of the vision that God has put on our hearts. We don’t need to have all the answers, we just need to trust Him to bring the vision to pass. Our job is to walk in faith, taking one step at a time towards fulfilling our God dreams. We may feel unequipped and inadequate at times. But, we must remember that we can do anything He calls us to do because He has empowered us to do it. It’s not by our own power, or might, it will be by the power of the Holy Spirit working in and through us that we will be able to fulfill our destiny in this world.

Recently when the Spirit of our Lord asked me to step out a little further in my faith, in my purpose, in my calling, and in my surrender; I responded with fearful excuses about all my inadequacies. He reminded me of when He called Moses into ministry. ( Exodus chapter 3-4) Moses gave him excuses also. Moses said, “Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?” He had a case of the ‘What if’s’. He said, “What if they won’t believe me or listen to me? He protested and pleaded with God, “Lord please! Send anyone else.” (Exodus 3:11,4:1, 4:13)

God got angry with Moses and his excuses and encouraged Moses by telling him He would have his brother Aaron help him by being Moses’ mouth piece-since one of Moses’ excuses was he didn’t talk well. Then God Almighty also turned Moses shepherd’s staff into a conduit of His power. It was through that staff that Moses would perform miraculous signs. (Exodus 4:14-17)

Exodus 4:20 in The Message Bible, says;

So Moses took his wife and sons and put them on a donkey for the return trip to Egypt. He had a firm grip on the staff of God.

This translation stood out to me because it shows Moses was dependent on the staff, which was the source of God’s power to help him on his mission. Moses did not think he was the man for the job. He was scared. He tried to talk God out of using him because he felt insecure. However when he stopped with the excuses and decided, “OK I’m going”; he went and got his family prepared and began his journey with a firm grip on the staff of God, his source of power.

As we know Moses became the man whom God used to deliver His people. He became the man who parted seas and lead the nation of Israel out of bondage. Moses was the man whom God Almighty gave the ten commandments. On his journey and throughout the battles he faced, the staff was with him. He never let go of it.

If our God has given you a dream, vision, or idea for something that will glorify Jesus and help further the Gospel and/or helps His people; let Him use you! We have the power of God available to us just like Moses did. In fact I believe it’s greater, because we have God’s Spirit living in us. It’s the same power that raised Christ from the dead that lives in us! Wow!! It is the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God working together in us that will help us in ALL our weaknesses and inadequacies. Let us stop making excuses and put all of our trust in God to work His miracles through us; despite our weaknesses, despite where we’ve been or what we’ve done, despite what people have said or say about us, and despite the lack of resources, or our circumstance; God is able to work in and through us.

As the saying goes, “God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called.”

2 Corinthians 12:9

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!
