There are people who think that God calls us by our capacity. Many believe that the apostle Paul was great for the studies he developed with Gamalier, but that is false, since he himself said: “But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” ( Galatians 1:11-12).
God does not call us because of our ability, because we are intellectual or illiterate, because we are rich or poor, because we are small or tall, before the Father of lights this does not have any kind of meaning, God does with whomever He wants and trains him as you can not imagine, and we can see this with a character named Peter, who, being a man without studies, preached a message and thousands converted to Christ.
In the Bible we have another very interesting story, and it is about Moses, considered the greatest leader of the old testament. In chapter four of the book of exodus, God calls him, shows him signs to see how powerful God is, and appointed him as the deliverer of the people of Israel from Egypt.
Moses did not take long to make excuses, for he said to God:
And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
Many of us, like Moses, have said: Oh, Lord! We have made the excuse that we are not trained or do not have the necessary skills for something, that we do not know how to speak, that we are timid, etc., but God does not care about any of this, God does not look at our capacity, the only thing that He looks is His purpose in us.
This man, who presented God with the excuse that he could not speak, became the great deliverer of the people of Israel, the man God used to show his glory in front of Pharaoh.
The same goes for us, God can do great things with us and has called us with an eternal purpose. Let us not make excuses to be used by God, for this is why we have been called.
