“Your Capacity” By Kirk Hunt
Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
Exodus 18:21 NKJV
Moses called for men of skill, ability and Godly character. The men who came forward were able to help with the governance of the people of Israel. While they were all high quality folks, they did not all have the same capacity.
Too often we think that more capacity means more quality. An ambulance has a low passenger capacity, considering its weight and chassis. Its capacity is matched, in excellence, to its purpose.
You have a capacity for ministry and service in the Kingdom of God. Do not compare yourself to others. Your capability is matched, in excellence, to your purpose in Him.
Should you seek to better yourself in skills, knowledge and capability? Yes, of course. Still, do not look down on yourself, or others, because of what is not done. Bless God that for is accomplished.
The “Rulers” of ancient Israel helped with governance, administration and teaching God’s Word. Because of their different capacities there was high caliber and intensely personal contact with everyone in the Exodus. At need, men with different capabilities could be quickly called in to help.
You are called there. You are called to do what you do. Be excellent at it.
Think: Be a Godly man or woman of quality, regardless of the details of your capacity.
Pray: “Father-God, help me to be a man or woman of excellence in Your Kingdom.”
