Quit the Shame
Get Back into The Game

                                 God has called you..

 

The Willingness to listen brings us to The Place of Qualification

And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 6Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. (Ex 3:2-6)

 

The Willingness to listen brings us to The Place of Qualification

PRINCIPLE: If you can hear what God says about himself you'll know and believe what God has to say about YOU.

God starts with the The ability to hear, the ability to be humble and the ability to obey. Now those attributes are not demonstrative but submissive, they reveal ones humility not ability. God wants willing vessels not self confident I've got what it take vessels sure you have confidence even divine confidence even the divine confidence of God, but this confidence is in God. Its a confidence that says I'm confident in his word to me. I'm confident that what he promised HE will do. I'm confident in that who he says He is. I'm confident in that what HE told me HE will fulfil.

If you have no confidence in you but have all confidence in him, you can start with that! Its unshakable confidence, unshakeable, unmistakable, undeniable and endurable. I believe God, dont you! 

Prayer: start me off in the place of divine confidence. If you said it I'll act on it. Lord make me a vessel of holiness where there is sin. Lord make me a vessel of honor where there is disrepute. Lord make me a voice of good news where there is gossip. Lord make me a chanel of light where there is bondage. Start off in the place of Humility

The State of Contrition brings us to the Place of Qualification

Whom am I?

Had Moses said "look at me," God woud not had used him as a deliveror. Contrast his call with Isaiah who when God was looking for an intercessor said, "I will go." the callis dependant on who you think you are but on your heart. Some will say who am I while others will say look on me. the issue has nothing to do with how confident you are but howwilling you are to listen to God.

A voice spoke out of the bush and said "take off your shoes."

And moses turned aside to see who was speaking.

If you can turn aside, that is leave what you are doing to discover who it is that has a message for you God can use you. 

 

 

 

 

Moses argues with God about his quafication. He said God I cant talk, God replied "I'll be your voice" Moses said, "Who Am I" God said, "look at who I am" (Ex 3) This is true in all our lives we dont venture in to God's best because we question our own ability. I'm here to tell you today, If God has spoken to you, You are Qualified! In the natural world you have to study to get qualified. But we know in the kingdom it is God who has qualified us. So, start with your graduation! This is how you start ministry. You believe God has called you so start from the the place of qualification. To get out out of a meaningless routine start from the place of qualification this means you are able to do what he said not what you are academically qualified for. Having no qualification is no barrier to God using you to shake your nation. So start from the place of quaification.

Prayer: Look I shall start today show me my burning bush show me what is light for my soul and fire for my generation. God speak to me from the bush of fire

 

The condition of Humility is the Qualification of Authoritty

And God said I have surely seen the the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have given heed to thy cry because of the taskmasters for I am aware of their sufferings. So I have come down to rescue them (Ex 3:7,8) NASB

The place of qualification is the place of revelation, the place where God talks to you and reveals that which has been hidden all along.

God called Moses to deliver his people. Moses questioned his own ability but notice here what God said. God said "I have come down to deliver them from the power of the egyptians." Do you get that! God said you be my rep I'll do the work. Now that takes the pressure off. God will do the supernatural that's his business. "I" will come down and deliver them.

Your qualification begins the moment you can take God at his word, Your obedience to a command will unlock pupose in your life. Now I want to be in that place, dont you!

PRAYER: God is about to unlock all hidden ability in you that which cannot come forth till God speaks. You shall take the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth in Jesus name
