Those voices in your head are lies. You know better than to think such negative things about yourself. The Devil is using that doubt to prevent you from the opportunities God sends in your direction. Doubt doesn’t just creep in, you had to give it access to your thoughts. You must remove all doubt and fears in order to help those people God sent to you for encouragement.
It doesn’t matter who doesn’t understand the wisdom you hold, because many of them secretly wait for you to fail. Don’t even think about giving them the satisfaction. You don’t have to listen to the naysayers, just listen to the pressing on your heart.
God saw something in you that others may never see. He placed a gift and a calling on your life to help people He sends your way. If you keep listening to the toxic voices around you, then you may unknowingly forfeit an opportunity only you were capable of meeting. If it were meant for someone else, then you would know nothing about it. Yet you do, so it belongs to you.
You were blessed with a gift to help those who are emotionally hurting. Those who have lost hope and need encouragement or guidance. The longer you hold onto to something you should be offering is the longer hurting people God sent your way, have to wait for the help He knew you could offer. You can keep trying to convince yourself that someone else is better fit for the position but you know that when God calls someone, He equips them for the job at hand.
You were chosen so quit expecting others to do your work. Take that wisdom and share with anyone that will listen. You don’t have to know who the person is that God sent to you for help, you just have to step out in faith and expect God to work on the hearts of those sent your way.
You are a prayer warrior, one who encourages, writer and a representative of Christ. Don’t you remember wasting ten years before you wrote your first book because of doubt? I question how many people you missed the opportunity to help because ten years passed before you did anything. You knew God called you but you let fear win.
Get out of your own way as God has prepared the way for you. Those voices of lies in your thoughts can’t rent space anymore. It’s time they find a new home. There are opportunities all around you waiting for you to step in and help. It was never about you Robin. You just took the attacks personally. It was always about you fulfilling the purpose for which you were created. You are unique and there is no one like you.
Get out of your own way…
