This morning, while heading into church, I was thinking about all of the exciting things that have been happen to me and through me. I tell you, it's amazing to watch.
However, in the back of my mind, I've quietly asked myself what makes me qualified to talk about success, when I haven't made a million dollars yet? How can I talk about great health when I'm still fighting to uncover my own six pack? How can I talk to people about changing their lifestyle, when I'm still driving a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica? How can I ever imagine being a mentor or coach when my own life isn't perfect?
Want to know God's response? It went something like this:
"WHERE I am is not WHO I am because WHO I am is greater than WHERE I am." ~ Dr. Samuel R. Chand
I kid you not. This was literally the message this morning. Understand how powerful that message is. It does not matter what your current circumstances are if you understand who you are (and whose you are).
You have to catch this point. It does not matter what car you drive (or don't drive), what job you have (or don't have), what house you live in (or don't live in), what skills you have (or skills you lack), and it doesn't matter if you're living a "perfect" life or not. Why? you may ask.
The answer is simple, "Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." 1 John 4:4 (KJV)
"God doesn't call the qualified, he qualifies the called."
Now is the time to embrace your calling, your purpose, your mission. You may not know HOW it will get done, just trust that by stepping out in FAITH and doing what you can, the HOW will reveal itself.
Today is your day, Champions! Drop the F.E.A.R. and go get what you came for!
