Every once in a while I come across a quote that totally wakes me up!
I want you to read this quote from Pastor Mark Batterson:
“God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.”
Think about that for a moment. No really. Read it again. Think about it.
How many times have you had a thought, an INSPIRED thought that you were really excited about until the internal gremlins I like to call Mr. and Mrs. Yeah But started running their mouths?
It goes something like this:
I would really love to write this book. But I have never even taken a writing class.
I would love to own my business, but I don’t have a clue what I’m doing.
I know I am meant to change the world, but what can I do from my small town?
That idea that keeps whispering from you? It’s not FROM you. It’s from Source. From the universe. From God. And it’s whispered to you because you are meant to explore its riches. But we think that we must somehow be “qualified” for own destiny. For our OWN destiny?
Doesn’t that just sound nuts when you think about it? You don’t have to be qualified to have that blonde hair you’ve got, or those brown eyes, or that tendency to chew on your pencil. Those things are uniquely you. So what makes you think you have to be qualified for your own unique destiny. You were PRE-QUALIFIED at birth.
So you don’t need to wait. You don’t need to be a few years older. You don’t need more money or a certificate hanging on the wall.
If you are CALLED to do something, God has qualified you to do it.
So I’m curious. What’s been whispering to you? What are you going to do now that you know you already have the Divine credentials? Leave a comment below and tell me! (For real!)
