You are not intended to appear capable of fulfilling God’s unlikely call on your life. If you could do it all in your flesh, it wouldn’t be God.
If you have a big calling, a big dream, a big vision, one so big that it seems impossible, you are in the best of company:
David, the unlikely lastborn son who ruled as King with a firstborn’s birthright.
Esther, the unlikely peasant who became a queen and saved her people.
Daniel, the unlikely survivor of a death sentence who became the King’s dear friend and advisor.
Joseph, the unlikely slave and convict who rose to rule at Pharaoh’s side.
Rahab, the unlikely prostitute who gave her life to the Living God and is honored in the lineage of Jesus Christ.
Your natural ability to do the thing you are called to do is going to be limited.
But your supernatural ability is not.
You access your ability by abiding in Jesus Christ and allowing Him to abide in you.
You become able to peacefully and confidently and victoriously face all the lions and giants and armies and accusers by soaking deeply in the presence of God. By completely trusting Him to make a way for the thing He said He would do.
Sometimes I do really well with this.
Sometimes I slip, and I look around me, and I have no idea how I’m doing it all.
Then I remember.
It’s all Yours, God. It’s all You.
We show up. We say yes.
And You do all the hard things and show Yourself God while we fumble along doing the best we can and singing Your praises because we know who we are without You.
We say yes to all the Unlikely Impossible Dreams.
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.” John 15:4
