God could have chosen any other person to do what He has called you to do, but He called you.  Rather than minimizing the opportunity and downplaying the blessing, you should embrace it and rejoice in it.  Too often we succumb to religious fallacies.  We confuse faux humility with graciousness.  Comment such as, “I’m not that good,” or “I’m just okay,” dishonor God.  God has called us to greatness.  We are wonderfully made in His image.  When we proclaim our gifts and talents, we are actually honoring Him.  It is neither sinful, prideful nor blasphemous to acknowledge that we are great because God made us so.  God loves us so much that He allows us to impact His world with the vision He has placed in our hearts.  For that, we should be excited.

                Too often we want to humanize God and sully His actions with our loose interpretations of His essence.  But God’s ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts.  He is gracious when we are not.  His scales of justice are not the same as ours.  We should not feel guilty about being used by Him, rather, we should see it as a compliment.   Let’s not minimize God to a petty deity.  He is the Supreme Being.
