You Have What It Takes




You Have What It Takes

by Olga Hermans

Sometimes God leads us the hard way instead of the easy way because He is doing a special work in us. How would we ever learn to learn from Him if everything in our lives is easy enough for us to handle ourselves?

That’s why it so important not to lose heart and not to grow weary or faint. You can be sure that wherever God leads you, He is able to keep you. He never will allow more to come on you than you can bear.

God is interested in us yielding to His grace to do the extraordinary. We are nothing without Him, but with Him we can do things that we cannot even imagine. Look at Moses who was called to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.

He could not see himself doing what God had called him to do; he thought he couldn’t speak well enough, he thought that he wasn’t strong enough. But something happened to him when he started thinking about the dream that God had given him; God supernaturally gave him the qualities he needed to fulfill this vision. The moment he started to realize that, he started to hold on to this dream with a tight grip and pursued it by force.

There are 7 qualities that you need, to discover the life you were born to live; we too have to take our land by force with a determination s never before. This is you’re your year that you have to know that you have what it takes to rise up and shine!

1. You have to know WHO YOU ARE; you are unique and you are valuable!

God’s plans for us contain a lot of surprises. God tells Moses in Exodus 3:10 that it was time for him to go back. God was sending him to Pharaoh to bring the People of Israel out of Egypt. He had to go and confront Pharaoh, but he didn’t know who he was.

We need to know who we are, what we can do, what we cannot do. God strengthens us in our weaknesses. As long as He is with us, we can do whatever we need to do. Be more concerned about who God is than you are about who you are.

2. You have AUTHORITY.

God explained to Moses that he would go in His name. He told him to say to Pharaoh that “I AM” had set him and that would be enough. God was saying that he didn’t have to worry about Pharaoh or anybody else. “I AM”  is able to take care of everything you encounter. Whatever you need “I AM“, so relax!!

The moment you know what you need to do, you will have authority. You have authority to walk in that vision and you have the authority to believe for it to come to pass. Some people may question your authority to do this, but your authority is in the “I AM”!

3. You need INTEGRITY!

When you know your assignment in life, you will have a desire for integrity in every situation because that is what gives the credibility for what you are doing. It established you in your vision. It really doesn’t matter what people say; it matters what God says about you.

You know that He is always backing you up when you do things His way; you have credibility with God!

4. You have to know that you are ABLE

The moment that you discover your assignment in life, you will find yourself capable of doing so much more than you were used to. Moses kept saying, that he was capable and this and that. Exodus 4:10, He wanted God to choose someone else!
But God highlighted his ability; his God-given ability, that divine ability to get the job done.

5. You need COURAGE

God ignored everything that Moses came up with about his “inability” to perform, to speak, and his age, and gave him courage.

Vision establishes courage. We have been reading in Exodus of all the obstacles Moses faced when God called him to fulfill this vision, but God ignored all that and gave him courage.

When you know your assignment, you also will have the courage to do exactly that what God told you to do and the courage to go after what God says is yours!

6. BOLDNESS will show up

It is really funny when you see the change in Moses. He always talked about God’s people, but the moment he discovered his assignment, he started talking about “My people!” He started to be bold because he had the courage and he took ownership (authority) of his own vision. That is what vision does.

He was changed, he didn’t say any longer “I am not…I can’t do…I can’t talk….”. No, he is bold now, because he is established in God. He knows now that God would back him up in everything that he was about to endeavour.


We all know the story in Exodus that Pharaoh didn’t want to let the people go, but he insisted and kept going back to him, but Pharaoh would not. He continually went back again and again. This was a different Moses. When you discover your assignment, you need perseverance, a “do not quit” attitude.

In the end Moses won; He knew what he needed to do, he knew the assignment that God gave him and by the perseverance that was established in his life he was able to conquer his weaknesses and finish his race.

We all have a purpose or a calling in life that God expects us to fulfill; we all need to discover the life we were born to live but we must have patience and perseverance in order to carry it out.

You have everything you need to be victorious just like Moses. Don’t settle for a life with no goals, no vision, and no purpose. You know that God has called you for a reason, so go for it! Don’t let Satan or anyone else talk you out of it!

Let me ask you a question; I would love for you to answer it in the comment section!

Q. If you are uncomfortably shy, how can you allow God to help you overcome this? Has shyness ever held you back from saying something God wanted you to say?

  1. Thanks ma’am for this wonderful message..
    Yea, I’d been a victim of not speakin what the Holy Spirit has put into me as a result of not bein bold enough..but I earnestly prayed to the Holy Spirit about it and now I get this utterance, this propelling force whenever I speak.. that has made me so comfortable and its now enjoyin to speak about God goodness and Love..

    Happy Birthday to your son:)
    may today always be a memorial to him that God’s Love is eternal..

    • Aww Thank you Arinze for your birthday wish to my son; you go and be bold to speak whatever the Holy Spirit had you speak; you will go places that you have never dreamed about!! Blessings to you!!

  2. First happy birthday to you son.I think the only way God can help one overcome shyness is by showing the person that he or she is worth a lot and that he or she is royalty and as Christians we have authority hence can stand up to anything since we are never alone.I really pray that I will learn that very soon.Thanks Olga you are awakening a lot of dead dreams and visions God bless you Mom.

    • Thank Lydia for your comment! YES, you are royalty in Christ; the dreams and visions on the inside of you will come forth as you keep following Him. Blessings to you!!

  3. Actually the idea that “He never will allow more to come on you than you can bear” is a a myth and is not Biblical.

    The correct verse is:

    “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV)

    God won’t allow us to be tempted beyond our ability to escape. As for trials and tribulations, they can often be more than we can bear and many Christians will tell you this.

    • HI Joel, I think I am saying the exact same thing as you do. It’s up to us when we take that way of escape. Do we take it the moment we see the temptation coming or do we dig into that temptation and then find the way of escape. God doesn’t want us to go the route of the temptation, He will ALWAYS warn us from things that are ahead of us!

  4. Thank you for sharing this heart-filled post! It is wonderful to remember that if we can face up to the things God nudges toward we will be supported by spirit.
    I think it is time we all listen to that voice and step into our shinning as Co-Creators!

  5. Happy birthday to your son, today is also my daughters birthday.

    Thanks for another awesome post Olga, your words are like music to me. In much of my teen years shyness held me back from many opportunities. I remained silent and hid the gifts that God has blessed me with. your words are an encouragement to my heart and remind me to keep focused and remember that my dream is not about me and it will come to pass.

  6. Good article, Olga. I always love the example of Moses, saying, Who Am I? And I think many of us do that at times when we are called to do greater things. And yet, he was exactly the one to do the things he was called to. God does not call the equipped but equips the called.

  7. Olga, thank you for this lesson from God. Yes, I have failed many times to speak up for Christ because of shyness. It is so important to remember that God is Able and anxious to be there for us when we follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

  8. Olga, as always you hit it out of the park!
    Perseverance always hits home with me. I believe this is what helps me overcome so many things and be successful in so many areas.
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  9. I always love your articles Olga…always uplifting and powerful. This is no exception. We must believe in ourselves as we have been created for great things! Blessings~
