You are qualified
1 Samuel 17:45-47 (NIV)
David said to the Philistine, ‘You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.’
Have you been practicing for a while out in your field, the area you are gifted in and have influence? Are you ready to take down an intimidating giant?
Right as you are about to take territory there it is again! It is tormenting you by questioning your ability, your position and whether you are qualified. “Are you really the right person for the job”?
David was small, ‘little more than a boy’ and wore no physical protection…but he came in the Name of the Lord. And because of this, his enemy despised him.
Are you despised for your work in His name? Don’t be surprised.
Don’t be afraid. You ARE the right person for the job. You ARE the chosen person for your job.
Previous bears and lions that you killed qualified you for this moment. Take it down again. It might look bigger but remember the battle is the Lord’s and He will give that giant into your hands!
