Recently, I read a post from a young lady asking if she should apply for a job that she did not feel she had adequate education and experience for at the time. She really wanted to apply for the job, but her own self-doubt and feeling of inadequacy was holding her back. She was reaching out seeking the overflowing encouragement of others because her own cup was probably dry. How often do we talk ourselves out of our best future because our past experience or in her case, lack thereof?
If we really want to see things come to pass in our lives, it must first occur in our minds. I can recall job opportunities obtained that required more degrees and/or more experience that I currently held, but because I had the mindset that "Those whom He calls, He also equips"...(See Hebrews 13:1 and Romans 8:30) I was not reluctant to apply for them. We must not be intimidated by the qualifications of man all the time. This does not mean we should not plan, continue to learn and progress, or work hard to achieve our goals. It means that we must know that above all, God is in charge and if He calls us to do something or has pre-destined us for a specific life, it will come to pass despite worldly circumstance. As long as we remain striving in the Will of God, He will direct our path.
