If God Calls.. God Will Equip You

January 27, 2013

Have you been asked to sing or teach or serve in some capacity in church today and you are anxious about it? I understand… I deal with the same anxiety periodically and I’ve been doing this for almost 32 years.
Maybe you are filling in for someone at Sunday School. Or, maybe you have a solo in church or a special in a choir selection. There could be other ways as well. If you have been asked to serve.. God will take care of you.
In the book of Exodus, Moses faced the same thing. When God spoke to him about following Him and leading Israel out of Egypt, Moses had nothing but excuses. Until finally, the Lord said, ” “Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.”
Just as God was with Moses, He will be with you. There is an old saying “Where God leads, God provides.” And, “God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called.”
So, if you have been asked to serve in some capacity.. sing.. teach.. whatever.. and you are anxious.. God will work it out. He did with Moses and He will with you.

    This one really spoke to me. I’ve been an EMT for 12 years and recently, God called me to step up and become a paramedic. I’ve known for a long time that I was meant to be in this field, but I haven’t had the courage to step up until now. Sometimes I start thinking about the responsibilities that will be placed on me. I wont just be a member of the team, I will have to lead and make decisions that could give or take away life. It scares me sometimes. I’m trying to balance marriage, church, school, and 9 kids. I also just found out that we will be having another baby due in the most crucial, busy time of the school year. We have one income, and this paramedic program has no financial aid. In the times when I am worried about how this is going to come together, God reminds me of Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. I understand that when Jesus said this, He was talking about spiritual gifts, but in my 12 years of service,I’ve seen all these things happen. As a paramedic, I get to be the hands, feet, and face of Jesus. I know that where God guides, He always provides.
