Let’s quit trying to be the hero…. God is the hero. I am only part of the rescue plan. — Jess Connolly
You Are the Girl for the Job: Let’s Quit
by Jess Connolly, from the brand-new curriculum, You Are the Girl for the Job
Welcome to Bible Study of the Week, where each Sunday we provide you with a new and different first session of a video study by popular pastors, authors, and teachers, plus information about our upcoming community online studies!

This is session one of You Are the Girl for the Job.


There’s no getting around it. I believe God is going to change each of us, change our lives, and change the world through this study. Here’s how I know:

For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth, Doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry, So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them. — Isaiah 55:9-11 MSG

We are the girls for the job because He is the one who starts and finishes the work in and through us. We can believe that He’ll bring fruit in our lives because His Word does not come back empty-handed.



Before we dig into this session’s video, let’s do a quick personal heart check. Take a minute or two to answer the following questions. You don’t have to share these answers; this is just an opportunity for you to pause and get honest with yourself and God.

1. On a scale of 1–10 (1=very little, 10=significantly), how much do you believe God can change your life and change the world through you?

2. How does the phrase “you are the girl for the job” make you feel?

  • suspicious
  • doubtful
  • neutral
  • encouraged

3. How willing are you to be surprised by God this week?



Father, I thank You for our new friends and our connection through Your Word. I ask this week that You’d help each of us to see potential defeat in our lives, to perceive it in places where we may have grown numb to the lies and condemning voices in our own heads. I ask that You would also give us eyes to see areas where we are striving, hiding, and pushing hard to be our ideal selves — instead of the women You’ve created us to be. I pray You give us the boldness and belief to quit trying to be heroes, and to begin trusting Your capacity and power in our lives. Amen.
