Availability vs. Ability

A few weeks ago Jeff preached on availability, not ability. Shortly after that, I was asked to take a leadership position in an organization. It was a position that I really wasn't qualified to do. I did, however, say yes. I would take the position since it seemed that no one else more qualified would step up and fill the spot. A few days later, a more qualified person was found and I didn't need to take the position. I feel that God was asking me to just be "available" to whatever He wanted me to do, not that He actually wanted me to do that particular job. A friend of mine calls things like that "God's wink". I like the term.
