God equips his people

Read: 2 Corinthians 13

Have you ever felt unequipped with words in a tough conversation?  

Maybe you were having a normal conversation with your boss when suddenly it turned into an opportunity to share the Gospel, leaving you feeling unequipped with the right words. 

Maybe you have that particular family member you feel unequipped to reach out to, to share the Gospel with, even though you feel that tug at your heart. 

Or maybe, it wasn’t an opportunity to share the Gospel but an opportunity of influence. Maybe you had an opportunity to share your story, impacting someone else with what God has done for you, but you felt unequipped — like God could use someone a little better equipped in that area than you in that moment. 

God equips His people for just the right conversation at just the right time.

God does not make mistakes. His timing is perfect, and He equips all of His people for just the right conversation at just the right time. God equips His people in all areas of our lives to share the Gospel at just the right time to invite others into a relationship with Jesus. He also equips us to share our stories to help others grow and mature in their faith by being the influence they need.

“[Jesus] is not weak in dealing with you, but is powerful among you. For to be sure, he was crucified in weakness, yet he lives by God’s power. Likewise, we are weak in him, but by God’s power we will live with him in our dealing with you” (2 Corinthians 13:3-4).

So although you may feel unequipped with words at times, remind yourself that the power of the Holy Spirit lives within you. God has equipped you to fulfill His purpose for your life, for just that exact moment.

Reflect:

  • When was one time you felt unequipped for a conversation? What did you do?
  • What is one way you are aware of Jesus’ presence and power in your life? Ask Him to reveal His presence and power to you when you feel unequipped.
  • What is one conversation you have been avoiding? What is one step you can take today to have that conversation knowing Jesus will equip you for it?
