This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: James 1:12 (ESV)
Today I am encouraging you when you lack credentials.
We are continuing our series titled “Preparing for your new season,” and today I want you to know that God will lead you on a new path even when your position is unofficial.
I once met a woman at a conference several years ago who awkwardly described her new path. She explained how she had just lost her corporate job due to a merger but had made a conscious decision not to pursue another corporate job, because she felt that God was leading her on a new path. In the interim, she was doing temporary work.
I could relate to this woman’s every word, even the awkwardness in her delivery, because she was telling my story. Sometimes when you’re working for God all you have is the feeling that He’s put on your heart. All you have is the assignment. You don’t have a title or an official role.
King David was in a similar position. Although he was named king, he wasn’t formally crowned king until nearly thirteen years later.
I believe God is doing two things with us during this period of shifting. First, He is preparing us. He not only wants to give us the title, but He wants to make sure that we’re spiritually strong enough to keep it.
Second, He’s testing us. He wants to make sure that we will be faithful even without a title. This is why many are called but few are chosen.
As you think about that, remember these words: “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12 (ESV)
