When the Lord guides our steps into anything new, a sense of being inadequate can come upon us attempting to stop us from moving forward. We learn to yield to His ability and not our inability. We experience His power in and through us as we step out in faith in His power.
An opportunity opens up for us to do something God has given us a desire for when suddenly a sense of incompetence comes over us. We hear of an opening for a job position in an area where we have no expertise, but we feel a strong leading to apply even though we feel we are not qualified. A door opens for a new relationship, but we feel insecure in going forward. As the Lord strengthens us in the power of His might, He continues to bring opportunities our way to take us to a place of confidence in Him. It is so we will know that even when we are unable, God is able.
Our heart is willing to do His will and our desire to follow Him overtakes our inability to do so in our own strength. God enables us to obey Him, one step at a time. When we come to the end of ourselves, He begins. When we stop, He starts. God is able and unchangeable. His strength is made perfect in weakness. His power rests upon us, from glory to glory!
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
