Aholiab

If God calls you to do something, he gifts you with all you need.
This is what we see in the case of Aholiab.


In the Holy Bible, Aholiab son of Ahisamakh, was a Danite of great skill, whom Moses appointed. He worked under Bezalel as the deputy architect of the Tabernacle. He helped build the implements which it housed, including the Ark of the Covenant. Exodus 38:23 in the Holy Bible describes him as a master carpenter, weaving, and embroidery.
But he was not always so skilled at his craft. Israelites, who had been masons and bricklayers in Egypt, were not skilled artisans; but the Spirit of God that moved amongst His people, miraculously gave Bezaleel and Aholiab the skill that was wanting.

Similarly those whom God calls to ANY service, he will find or make fit for it. The Lord gives different gifts to different persons; let each mind his proper work, diligently remembering that whatever wisdom any one possesses, the Lord put it in the heart, to do his commandments. (Ex 31:12-17)

If you have been appointed to a position at your Lodge - and don't feel up to it. Do not despair. The GAOTU will guide you to success. Just make sure you ask Him. ;)
