"The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it" (1 Thessalonians 5:24).
Why do I sometimes believe I am incapable of doing the task God has called me to do? If He has called me to step out in faith, He expects me to reach further than my own strength. He empowers what He has instructed. Yes, it is more than I am capable of. It should be, or I would not need His guidance and His strength. I would try to accomplish the work on my own, and it would have little impact. I need to reach beyond my limited capability to discover His, or the work I do in His name has little ability to accomplish His purpose. What might seem overwhelming in its intensity, is nothing to Him. When He summons me to a specific task, I know that He has looked beyond my limitations, and seen His potential in my life.
I think I know me. I have little knowledge of who I really am. He sees my capability and my potential. He is faithful to provide all of Himself for the little that I have. He will do the work. That is His promise when I surrender my control, and let Him develop me. His calling is not just for His work in the world. It is for His work in me.
