You Want Me To Do What?

This week I was studying in Exodus.  It has been an amazing journey through this book.  I can only imagine what it was like for the Israelites.  Just to be that involved in the work of God.

In Exodus 31, God is giving instructions to the Israelites on building the temple.

“See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with ability and intelligence with knowledge and all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs to work in gold and silver and bronze.  In cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, to work in every craft.  And behold, I have appointed with him Oholiab, the son of Ahisamich, of the tribe of Dan.  And I have given to all able men ability, that they may make all that I have commanded you.”

Scripture doesn’t tell us when God filled him with His Spirit or ability.  Did he learn these things while under the service of Pharaoh?  Did he just wake up one day and was able to do it?  Just like us, God has equipped us to do everything He has called us to do.  It may be a lifetime of training and learning that is just part of our daily life with no idea that God wants to use that talent for His glory.  It may be something we didn’t even realize we could do until God calls us to do it.

God has made each of us unique, with unique life experiences.  God has allowed us to walk paths we might never have chosen, but He is using for His purpose.

What might God be calling you to do?  Are you excited about that calling?  Nervous?  Scared?  God will never ask you to do something for Him that He has not prepared you to do, or that is not willing to walk with you through.

Don’t miss out on the blessing of allowing God to use you because of fear or feelings of inadequacy.


Equipped by Him,
