A Kingdom Leader is keenly aware of how he sees himself. His self assessment is realistic and sober. But that assessment is in light of God and His ability.
Do you see the problems you face as gigantic and overwhelming? Is your personal snapshot limited to your own specific gifts to accomplish a lofty goal? What picture do you have of yourself in your heart and mind? Is that internal picture an insect?
Problems can seem so overwhelming that we see no way of accomplishing our God given goals. God is asking that you do what is possible while he does the impossible.
Numbers 13:33 (NIV)
33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”
Your internal picture will be projected to others. Remember to filter that snapshot through the ability of God. It changes the image.
You do the possible today and leave the rest to God. Praying.
