Moreover, I have appointed Ohoiab son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan, to help him. Also I have given ability to all the skilled workers to make everything I have commanded you: Exodus 31:6
Different people have different skills and different levels of abilities in these skills. Some people appear to have natural abilities in some skills. They seem to be able to do something very well with no trouble at all. Others have to fight hard just to do some of the same things just enough to make it acceptable, but still far from great.
As Moses was given instructions on what to build for the tabernacle, God provided various men with skills to be able to make everything needed.
God will often ask a person to step out in faith and do some new type of work or ministry. Very often believers feel as if they are unqualified to do that new type of work or at least to do it well. Many will run from it, rather than trusting God and moving forward.
When God calls a person to do a work for Him, He will also equip the person for the work. Abilities beyond the normal will suddenly show up in the person for accomplishing the mission that has been given.
The work abilities required may be physical skills as those helping build the tabernacle and its accessories. Other times it may be other abilities, such as working with children, special needs people, speaking, teaching, or some other needed skill.
Regardless of what skill is needed, the important thing for the believer is to lean on God for understanding and to do the work He calls him to do. At the time needed, God will provide all that is needed when the servant is faithful.
There is a work that God has given you to do in the process of building His kingdom. In this, He has also ready to give you the strength and skills to be able to accomplish that mission with success.
Rather than look at your faults and lack of abilities, focus upon what God has given you the ability to do. With God at your side guiding you, you will be able to do more than you could or would ever be able to do on your own.
Ask yourself what skills has God given you to build His kingdom.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will trust God to give you the abilities needed; that you will be willing to do the work God has for you; and that you will build God’s kingdom in His way.
