You, Are You Serious?

For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. (Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV)

Twenty years ago the Lord gave me a word that I would be a pioneer of new things in ministry and to prepare myself. I was excited and told some friends, but they just gave me a dumb look and asked if I was serious. Looking back on it, I guess it was hard to believe. I was no one, with no education, and from a long family line that did not even attend church. We did own a dust-covered Bible that no one read, and everything that I thought was in it, was not. After close inspection, most of what I knew turned out to be legalistic lies and personal preferences.

I went back to school and earned a degree in theology, but instead of Him putting me into ministry, I worked on computers for the next twenty years. I became skilled at it and owned my own business. Then suddenly that door shut, the business tanked, and the week that we were preparing to move out of our home, I ended up in ministry as a pastor. Now we find ourselves building an online church using the same skills that I learned on the street, and there are new things coming in ministry.

God rarely calls the qualified. He qualifies the one that He calls. God’s voice brings faith with it, and your friends who did not receive it will not understand, but that will not matter or change the course. The word is for you. When God calls you to do something, He also gives you the faith to complete it. If you feel that He has not yet called you, then volunteer like Isaiah (Is. 6:8). Here I am! Send me! Don’t give up during the training. It does not happen overnight. No one can stop God’s plan for you, except you.
