Father, may this be me. Thank you for giving me this heart. I don't want to waste my life. I pray for Your unique opportunity.
The following is adapted from Trevin Wax:
How am I sensing awe and humility in what God promises to do through me?
How many times have I failed to act in faith because I thought too little of myself, or because I minimized the gifts and talents and passions that God Himself has put in me?
How many times have I exaggerated challenges and diminished God’s call?
How many times have I faltered in faith, not by overestimating myself but by underestimating what God can do through me?
Failure to see the grandeur of God squashes our hope in what He can accomplish through us. A distorted vision of God leads to a diminished view of ourselves. In the end, we no longer think we are capable of doing what God has called us to do.
Underestimating myself is not humility, but faithlessness. The stronger my faith in God is, the stronger my faith will be in what God can and will do through me.
