Stop doubting yourself!
Everyday I talk with people of my generation who feel like they have accomplished nothing. They feel like they have no hope or opportunity to do anything with their life. I would even say they feel as if there is no potential for them to ever be successful.
Many times those who feel like they have no potential have the greatest potential. The ones who feel like they will never be good enough turn out to be the ones with the most compassion and understanding of others.
Philippians 2:13 "For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure."
Here is something that we all have to grasp. We’re not good enough. Yes I said it, we are not good enough to be preachers or prophets or even sweep the floor in the house of God. Why?
Romans 3:23 "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”
But here is the amazing thing. God has so much grace and so much compassion for us that He has inserted a intense dose of greatness in to every person on the planet!
Wow! For me that’s amazing. We feel like we are nothing, but the creator knows us and cares for us. He gives everyone a passion for something in the kingdom.
1 Corinthians 10:24 "Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor."
Now this may step on your toes, but let me be honest. When you start believe lies like you aren’t good enough or you aren’t talented enough you are operating in a spirit of selfishness. If you really cared about other people you would know that all greatness comes from the Father above and you have every gift and every tool you will ever need to be a great vessel for the kingdom.
You’re useful in the kingdom, never think any different
Ephesians 2:8-10“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
