“I can do anything through HIM who gives me strength.”
What do I need that’s HE can’t give?
We all have weaknesses, right? Nobody’s perfect and nobody can do everything. Well, I admit, I do have a lot of that. Before joining the 1000 Missionary Movement and even until now, I still did not know what talent God gave me. I don’t know how to sing and I am not a good speaker. What talent should I use to do His ministry? Then I realized, God is not concern of our weaknesses but he is concern of what is inside our heart and what we can do for Him in the present and in the future.
Moses complained to God that he is slow of speech and tongue. Sometimes, I feel like Moses, specially that I am now here in South Korea, teaching the language which is not my own and am not a teacher by profession. But said to Moses in Exodus 4:11-12,
“Who gave man his mouth?….Is it not I, the Lord?
Now go, I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”
God has no plan to make us fail in doing His ministry. He will equip us with whatever He asked us to do. God can use ordinary person like me and you if we put our trust in Him. All things are possible.
Now here comes the final issue; Are we willing and teachable like Moses?
God said in Exodus 4:12,
“Now go, I will teach you and help what to say.”
Isn’t it a good promise?
God only need 2 things in us, our willingness to follow through obedience and a teachable spirit.Anyone who has this 2 things can be used by God to do great things.
