This summer, I’m reading more about intercessory prayer. Over the years, people have said, “Heather, you are an intercessor!” But I don’t feel like an intercessor. It doesn’t seem to fit my personality. Surely, this is a mistake!
Would God give someone a gift of praying for others even if it didn’t seem within their natural or obvious talent? Yes! Yes He would!
I’m beginning to realize God might very well ask us to do something outside of our natural talent, ability, or personality precisely because it brings glory to Him and not us. More and more, God puts me in situations that far exceed my ability or even natural desire. When I stay surrendered and allow God to work though my life, it’s clear it’s the Holy Spirit and not anything I contributed through my own abilities.
