With God, You are Up to the Task
GOD PAUSE: God has a way of putting us in a situation that is bigger than we are. We feel inexperienced. The task seems greater than our qualifications. Our resume doesn't always fit the job requirements. But that is all without God in the equation. That's kind of like Solomon felt when he became king of Israel. He says in I Kings 3:7 “And now here I am: God, my God, you have made me, your servant, ruler of the kingdom in place of David my father. I’m too young for this, a mere child! I don’t know the ropes, hardly know the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of this job.” But Solomon asked God for wisdom and a discerning heart to do the job. And you and I do the very same thing. Lord, Your Word says we can ask you for wisdom and you won't withhold it from us. We are equal to any task with Your help. Amen.
