I am not a writer.
I am not a speaker.
I am not a leader.
I am not creative.
I am not organized.
I am not smart enough.
I am not good enough.
I am not thin enough.
I cannot memorize Bible verses.
Insert your I am not and your I cannot here…
These labels are all LIES! Lies from the enemy. Lies to keep you from your calling and from using your God given gifts to bring glory to Him. Lies to distract you. Lies to steal from you. Lies to kill and destroy.
It says so in RED writing in John 10:10 | NIV…
“The thief comes ONLY to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Exodus talks about how God called Moses, a man with a speech impediment, who had once killed an Egyptian, to be the leader. Moses felt inadequate and not able to do what God had called him to do.
“Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” Exodus 4:10-12 | NIV
Time and time again scripture tells us about how God used people who felt weak and inadequate.
Choose to remain in the TRUTH.
Never forget that you are made in God’s image and through Him you can do ALL things.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27 | NIV
“I can do ALL this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 | NIV
Your Father is the Great I AM and you are made in His image, therefore you can turn your I am not’s into I am’s and your cant’s into can’s. Peel off those labels you’ve been wearing!
“God said to Moses, “I AM who I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” Exodus 3:14 | NIV
You alone are not competent, but with Him you can do it!! He will be with you. He will help you and teach you.
“But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.” Exodus 3:11-12 | NIV
“Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:4-5 | NIV
