For [as a believer] you have been called for this purpose, since Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you may follow in His footsteps.

1 Peter 2:21

God knows our doubts and how we wonder how we might fit into His plan. We wonder what we have to offer. Some things are not meant for us to think through. If this were the case then we would rely on ourselves and not necessarily see a need for God. This is what we need to be cautious of; relying on our own strength, intellect and finances. Christ wants us to come directly to Him and rely on Him. He wants us to strengthen our faith and understanding, and He wants us to step out.

There is more to who we are than we realize. Every situation and circumstance pulls at us. Are we going to allow it to pull us closer to Christ or further from Him? Growth comes from seeing issues through and allowing Christ to come in and walk with us step by step. This gives us experiences to draw upon when other instances arise and it gives us a chance to share our faith and hope with others, because we have already walked it.

Don’t second guess yourself and wish for things to be different. Stand tall knowing that you are in this position for a time… for a time to learn and grow. For a time to understand, for a time to follow Christ’s example and walk as He has walked.
