EMPOWERMENT OF A MISSION
By: Christine Wyrtzen
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me. Psalm 138:8
When God chose to birth Daughters of Promise through me, I was sure He picked the wrong birthmother. He gave me a mission that exposed my sense of inadequacy. I was forced to admit that I was shortsighted. I knew I lacked the wisdom that the calling required.
I felt like Moses who, after God gave him his orders, reminded God that he was not eloquent. He felt that one fact alone disqualified him. In response, God asked him one simple question. "Who made your mouth? I will be with your mouth and teach you what you are to say." When Moses' objections ceased and it was evident that he would obey, I wonder if God sat on the edge of His seat, anxious for show to begin. He knew what Moses would accomplish with heaven's power behind his efforts. God had already planned the future and written the last chapter of Moses' life.
I am continually comforted by the truth that God is not wringing His hands in despair over any of the things that rob me of peace. Why should I worry then, since my life is in His hands? God's wisdom has already conceived a solution to every thing that troubles or perplexes me today.
It is I who watch the parade of my life and sees only what passes in front of me. From this vantage point, it's easy to despair. God looks down, though, and views the beginning and the end of the procession. He not only knows tomorrow's challenges but also has already made provision for the answers. He is a King who rules with kindness.
My inadequacy is irrelevant. You will fulfill Your purposes. I rest in anticipation of Your provision, God. Amen.
