The Lord said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go. 22 Then say to Pharaoh, ‘This is what the Lord says: Israel is my firstborn son, 23 and I told you, “Let my son go, so he may worship me.” But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.’”

If God has called you to a particular task, you can be sure He has also ‘given you the power to do’ it. It’s not a matter of whether you feel you have this power. Feelings have very little to do with it. Some days you may feel massively empowered, and at other times as weak as the proverbial kitten. We live much of our lives unaware of what we actually have ‘under the bonnet’.

God expects us to use what He has given us. It may be ‘ten talents’, ‘five talents’ or ‘one talent’. But whatever we’ve been entrusted with He expects us to invest.

Make sure you do in the world whatever God has given you the power to do.
