God doesn’t need us to be what the world says we need to be. He doesn’t work like we might think. He doesn’t need powerful people to do powerful things. He doesn’t need people of influence to influence the whole world. He doesn’t need the most courageous to do incredible works. God simply needs us to be who he created us to be. We are enough, just as he made us. We don’t have to wait until… We don’t need to wait until we have more money to serve him. We don’t need to wait until we have more influence. We don’t need to be older or younger. We don’t need to be bigger or smaller. We don’t need to wait to be servants of the Most High God. He knows who we are. He knows what we are capable of accomplishing. He knows all about us. And he will give us all we need to accomplish the plan he has for us. We don’t need to be someone else to be God’s. We are already enough. We simply need to be willing.
As I was reading Psalm 105, these two descriptions stuck out to me – while they were few in number…of little account. The world sees numbers. The world sees worth according to accomplishments and accolades. God sees the willing. He sees his chosen. He sees his children. And that is all he needs.
Stop waiting until… There are always plenty of reasons not to do what he would have us to do. All he asks is that we are willing. We can do that.
12 When they were few in number,
of little account, and strangers in it,
13 wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,
14 he allowed no one to oppress them;
he rebuked kings on their account,
15 saying, “Do not touch my anointed ones;
do my prophets no harm.”
