But I’m Not Qualified…

But I’m Not Qualified…

Today’s post are just some thoughts that I hope can be an inspiration as you head into the weekend.  During the week one of my favorite times of the day is the early morning, when the house is quiet, and the sun is just shining through the trees in our backyard.  Sometimes I read my bible, daily devotion, or just sit in silence and soak in the peace…with my coffee of course.  This is where I truly submit to the command to in the book of Psalms to “Be Still”.

My oasis

One morning last week I was reading, and this verse from 1 Corinthians smacked me in the face, and I have not been able to get it out of my mind since then:

“For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.  But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.”

1 Corinthians 26-30 (ESV)

Why did this particular verse smack me in the face that morning?  Probably because I had spent a few days wondering “What am I doing? I’m not a leader, I don’t know anything about running a business”.  You know, this is 100% accurate.  I don’t know what I’m doing, and I don’t know how to run a business.  However, I cannot rely on my own understanding, because I will fail every time.  This goes against what our culture has tried to teach us.

What do we do when we are surrounded by constant themes of “do it yourself”? We humble ourselves, and ask God to lead us through the journey He has paved for us.  Even if the journey does not make sense.  He will provide wise counsel, and guidance to help lead us down the road to success.

If you are facing a task that you do not feel equipped for, remember, it’s okay.  God does not ask the qualified, He asks the unqualified to walk with Him as He guides us through the journey.
