The Answer is Within You



Genesis 2:19

Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.


One of the first tasks performed by Adam in the garden was that of naming the animals. They were brought before him and he chose their names. It seems that God was present for this task as it was Him who brought the animals before Adam. Yet, even with God present, there is no record of Adam asking God what he should call them, or of God telling Adam what he should call them. There is no record of God questioning Adam on his choice of name. In fact the record is, that whatever Adam called the animal, that was its name. This was a task that was entrusted to Adam because God knew that he could do it. The wisdom and ability needed for the task was already within Adam; he was made for it.


There are tasks before us constantly in life. When our lives are being lived in His plan and purpose the tasks that are before us have been ordained of Him. He entrusts us to perform the task and to fulfil it. We have been created with the wisdom and ability to accomplish these things in a way that will be pleasing to Him.


If ever it seems that there is no answer from heaven when you feel that you need it, consider that the answer from heaven is already within you. You were made for the tasks and challenges that are before you. God is with you and is pleased with what you do. Don't be afraid. Don't doubt yourself. Don't second guess yourself. Be confident as a child of God who has been born for such a time as this with Kingdom purpose and ability within.


Think:

Do I lack confidence in the tasks that are before me? Do I expect to fail and expect that somehow I will get it wrong all the time?


Pray:

Father, thank you that I am your child. Thank you that you are with me and that you are for me. Thank you that I have been made for the tasks that are before me. Thank you that you have given me the wisdom and ability to successfully complete and accomplish all that is before me for your glory.
