Chosen for the Altar Series - 9

Capacity

Maybe you think: " I have the desire to serve God and I feel that I am chosen for the altar, but I don't have even the minimal capacity. I don't know how to act, or how to express myself, and I'm actually quiet shy, I'm so young and inexperienced, where will I even begin? I don't think I'm capable of doing something so important and holy."

My friend, don't be frustrated, I also felt the same way but when God chooses he also gives you capability and wisdom needed for each situation and need.

You will be able to do things you never imagined being capable of doing. Don’t let this be an obstacle to serve Jesus, because with time all of those things will change.

The only thing you should worry about is having a sincere heart, free from all things and ready to serve God, He will do the rest, because the work is the Holy Spirits and not ours.

Be ready and let God use you, as simple as that.

"It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God. He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life."

2 Corinthians 3:5,6

I agree with you, when I became an assistant I didn't think I could even talk to anyone or give those older then me a word of faith but through seeking God and trusting, He has truely shown me that every capacity comes fron Him.

I used to think that those called for the altar had to be these Bold, strong women with a great faith that could move mountatins. i came to understand that the work of God is done by the Holy Spirit, He then gives us the capacity to do His will. I can be used by God because its his work and all we have to be is willing to obey His voice we wont have to worry about whether our responsibilities / positions being unprofitable because He will be in control.

Dear Mrs Tania
Its true, I also felt the same way. Once we give our lives on the altar God Himself give as the capacity and qualifications to do His work, as long as our intentions are sincere.

Dear Mrs Tania
Yes it is so needed for us to be honest with ourselves and trust in God in all that He entrusted us with because as long as He chose us He will always be on our side and The Holy Spirit will guide us if we give Him a chance to do so.

Thank you

Having the desire to serve God on the altar and thinking that is not for you because you despise yourself due to lack of confidence- God is the one who will give you capability to serve him on the altar,when God chooses you he will also gives you capability and wisdom needed for each situation.The only thing we must worry about is having a sincere heart, free from all things and ready to serve God,we must be ready and allow God to use us.

Thank you for the article. Capacity to serve God is indeed God given. But we have to get rid of complexes and believe in ourselves because God believes in us.Phillipian says " I can do all things through Christ".
