No one ever agrees I can be full of humor and noise until they stay a minute with me, if you see my face, you will conclude I never talk
Aside ministry, I never believed I could speak to a large crowd or even go for evangelism. I gave some conclusions about myself that I am quiet, calm, not able to speak, can’t express myself etc! All lies sha.
Funny enough, for me to walk in purpose I must talk o! I must talk about Jesus, I must speak about personal development and also coach young people into becoming what God has called them to be so imagine if I decided to keep quiet?
I ran away from the spotlight, if you told me to handle a function in church or in a program, you will not see me or I will give you a thousand and one reasons why I can’t, why I won’t do it well and why you should choose someone else.
If you successfully forced me, I will not be able to speak, like I will be shaking on stage and sometimes ruin everything. Not as if I am not talented or because I don’t have what to say be because I LACKED CONFIDENCE!
See, God has blessed you, given you gifts, filled your mouth with words but everyday you wake up with excuses ” I am shy” “That’s how I am o” “I can’t talk” but when will you grow past this?
Just like Moses he had an excuse, yet God told him to go, He even provided a helper for him yet Moses was in the front line. It was until I understood that there’s more God wants to do through me, then there was a shift in my life.
People who knew me 3 years ago, will not believe I can be this outspoken, the only thing that held me from doing so much was having NO confidence in myself.
I remember the first time I lead in worship because I was in choir, everyone kept their face like I was singing rubbish and I concluded I was, went off key like 50 times until the MD came to collect mic
Maybe the reason your voice still cracks when you lead in worship is because you don’t believe you can sing better!
You can believe God has called you into purpose but if you don’t accept you are CAPABLE of walking in whatever God has called you into, you will never break grounds!
You don’t need anyone’s opinion to know you can achieve greatness and can do greater things until you believe in God’s word for you and I’m yourself! Don’t think you are too small o, if God says GO, PLEASE GO!
Before you make conclusions about yourself, wait for what God said about you! Nobody should tell you what God didn’t say about you!
You are a LIGHT, made to SHINE!
Nobody can off the LIGHT, God put ON!
I just wanted to motivate someone here, you are better than you know! Just get out of your box, BREAK OUT OF YOUR SHELL!
You can’t win a soul if you think you are not capable or even heal the sick if you think God cannot use you. How do we get to that place of influence if we don’t think we can?
We are not settling for less, nothing of the ordinary! We are breaking grounds and crushing stereotypes! I don’t know who else is moving with this energy
Don’t forget personal development is important, spend time with God, read books for personal development, attend seminars, keep good company. As believers, we should be at all fonts! NO MORE HIDING!
Who is getting blessed? Please let’s spread this word! It is now or never! We will rise.
