The path God has placed you on comes with a lot of training. Vision comes with a price. In the world you may see signs that say “no experience necessary” but for God to fulfill the vision He has given you experience will be necessary. Instead of wondering why things are happening to you, just know God has ordered your steps. The Bible says in Psalms 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.”
God has given you a work to do provided you go down the path He has instructed you to go. This path comes with uncertainty, doubt, tears, fear of the unknown and you name it on your part. God has said “BELIEVE and TRUST Him”. As you walk down this path you begin to see God in your trials. Your doubt becomes trust. You become certain of your calling. Your tears become tears of joy. God begins to give light to what was unknown to you. . You gain experience. The more tribulation, the more experience gained.
For some, God will manifest Himself in a way you would never expect because He knows He can trust you. If you are serious about what God has told you to do then DO IT! The experience will come. Take that leap of faith. The experience will come. Do not listen to people who can not believe with you.
For some, God has already told you what to do and how to do it. He knows you have experience in that area in which He is calling you. What is the hold up? Stop asking people for advice. God has already told you what to do.
The Word of God says in I Peter 4:12, “Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you; 4:13 says “But rejoice….”
Are you currently in a trial? Remember that the experience needed for what God has called you to do has placed you in the midst of this tribulation. Can you look at your situation differently? Can you now see that God has a plan for you? You may not like where you are right now but you will know why God had to bring you down this road. Trust God. Lean on Him. Don’t try to figure God out.
In order to accomplish what God has given you to do, experience is necessary.
