Don’t Worry: God Will Equip You for His Calling

by | Mar 12, 2021 | Culture

An encounter with the living God will change everything about you.

If you are afraid of man, an encounter with Jesus will give you fiery boldness.

If you are self-conscious, an encounter with Jesus will show you whose you are and how He sees you.

One moment in His presence will change everything. The things of this world will grow strangely dim in the light of who He is.

A well known verse, Psalm 34:8 says, “O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.” It is important not to just stop at this verse but to continue reading: “for the ones who fear Him will not be in need. The young lions are in want and suffer hunger, but the ones who seek the Lord will not lack any good thing” (Ps. 34:9b-10).

Friends, I tell you this because as I have lived from this place, His miraculous power has manifested in the most beautiful ways in and around my life. He is so faithful! Going into high school I was a lover and follower of Jesus.

Growing up, I encountered Him in beautiful and life-changing ways. Right before I entered my public high school in Nebraska, I was living in Florida when I had a dream from the Lord. In the dream, I had put together an assembly program at my school, and I could see hundreds of students coming to Christ. Not long after the dream, I moved to Nebraska, and I met my still best friend, Joshua Smith. After talking about Jesus together, we quickly realized the Lord had been showing us both the same thing. Joshua had an open vision on orientation day freshmen year about sharing the gospel with other students. We instantly hit it off and are now ministering together 19 years later all around the world.
