Women’s Digest: The Voice – Part 5

God Speaks – Is it beyond you? As in, is it outside your comfort zone or does not relate to your personality? Most times this is how God operates. I can tell you about me now that I am in the midst of planning an event God impressed upon my heart, God sure takes people outside of their comfort zone to use them. He is an extraordinary God and he does extraordinary things. Do not look at yourself when he calls you to do what you may call the unthinkable. Look at him. God can, God lives in you so you can. If God is calling you to do something you feel is beyond you, you are in good company. That his history. He calls people to do things that are beyond them.

Biblical proof: Abraham was old, Jacob was insecure, Leah was unattractive, Joseph was abused, Moses stuttered, Gideon was poor, Samson was codependent, Rehab was immoral, David had an affair and all kinds of family problems, Elijah was suicidal, Jeremiah was depressed, Jonah was reluctant, Naomi was a widow, John the Baptist was eccentric, Peter was impulsive and hot-tempered, Martha worried a lot, the Samaritan woman had several failed marriages, Zachaeus was unpopular, Thomas had doubts, Paul had poor health and Timothy was timid.

A group of misfits, all who God used in mighty ways. Just trust him and answer to the call. Don’t look at your inabilities and dwell in insecurities. Look at the Almighty God.
