SKILLS GOD HAS GIVEN US TO MINISTER

Many are they in this world who thinks that if anything cannot be explained in certain ways, It is wrong. Many Christians tend to think if you have not been equipped with certain skills then they are certain areas you should not take interest in or are not in your calling. Remember many are called but few are chosen.

NOTE:  in your calling –many are called.

God equips those whom he has called. I know you have heard of the saying God does not necessarily call the equipped but he equips those whom he calls. There are skills god gives us that his will may be done. There are some things we think are formed by certain interactions we make but truth be told it is God who allows those interactions to be formed.

I made a list of thinks that God equips us with.

  • People interaction

The Bible in the book of Exodus talks of resistance by Moses to his call from God. He claimed he is not an eloquent speaker but God gave him Aaron his brother to speak for him.

 Exodus 2:10,14 NIV

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.

Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you.

For instance

If you wanted to serve somewhere in the church but you cannot approach the church leadership on that day someone you know and serves will meet you in church and can introduce you to the leadership at the church.

Therefore God will provide a way where there seems to be none.

  • Social skills

‘‘I feel God is calling me to serve from the pulpit-but I am shy.’’ What if this is you- you are shy but have been called to preach do not lose hope God will begin to cultivate courage in you through the people around you. He may bring people who will give hope to you that you may stand before others. Furthermore churches do offer training as there is a need to cultivate certain skills in an individual for ministry.

  • Reference tools
  • Prayer

Journals, articles, books and other materials with scriptural teaching are very key. We can do our research in order to communicate the message of Christ. However we need to be very careful when using tools designed by man. We have to pray for discernment to know which tools are from the spirit and which ones are not especially when it comes to literature.

In order to come up with this blog the two people involved had to sit together and pray about the idea, content, strategies and above all guidance from the Holy Spirit. We know the importance of prayer and we have to use it at all times.

One great tool is a dictionary. Elijah was not taken up to heaven in a chariot of fire but in a whirlwind (A small rotating windstorm of limited extent ) the chariot and horses of fire separated Elijah from Elisha. Elijah went to heaven in a whirlwind (2 Kings 2:11)

In everything you yearn to do in love, life and laughter turn to God in prayer.

In conclusion God has given us useful tools that you may push aside as it is easy to say they are flesh seeking motives.
