Preparing to minister is not nearly as necessary as daring to minister

“Preparing to minister is not nearly as necessary as daring to minister.” –Jon Courson

David didn’t find what he needed to do battle until he ventured out to the battlefield. It was after he was on the battlefield that he found the five smooth stones for his sling. (1 Samuel 17:40) It’s the same for you and I. It’s when you’re actually doing it, that you’ll find what you need to bear fruit for God.

So get out there and do it. Sure, you’ll make mistakes. You’ll bumble around a bit at first. Every single person involved in ministry has, and still does.

That’s OK. God knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. (Psalm 103:14)

So go ahead, enter the fray.

Find your five smooth stones.

What are you waiting for?
