when God calls you for any given purpose, HE SUPPLIES YOU with all that you need to accomplish His purpose. From the spirit, God will give you that desire to fulfill His mission given you. Though you can't see yourself as able to BE that pillar, you're judging from your fleshly standpoint...the here and the now, what it LOOKS like, what you can currently sense.
Remember that Moses didn't see himself as a Hebrew leader, but God gave him what he needed to accomplish his task. No one took David seriously when Samuel anointed him as a FUTURE king~~he didn't have the look, he was young, and he had not developed in strength yet.
Jesus was born under circumstances that made absolutely NO logical or reasonable sense for the great King he is, but it wasn't until after he died and rose again before it was understood by some that He was truly the Messiah.
In today's world, many people think that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are absolutely nuts, stupid, insane, crazy, selfish, absurd, etc...for having the size family they have. However, I genuinely see Michelle as truly gifted to be the mother that she is. She has a very special peace about her that goes beyond amazement and comprehension in this world. I believe that she is indeed fulfilling her mission. Could she crack? Most definitely...she is, after all, human and subject to the flesh of this world. However, as long as she remains in her mission driven by spirit, God will supply her with all the necessary strengths to protect her in this world. God is able to remove distractions from our lives or equip us to handle them when our mission is to fulfil God's purpose in life.
Thank you for posting the song. : )
