"A man’s gift makes room for him And brings him before great men." Proverbs 18:16 (NASB)
Don't force your gift upon anyone. Just make it available and wait for it to open up doors for you. God gave it to you for His glory, and there is no greater purpose on this earth. God knew before you were a twinkle in your mother's eye what He had for you. And what God has for you is for you. No one can take your place in your season.
Be patient and prepare for your moment. Don't begrudge someone else their turn, and don't try to cut in line. Let your gift make room for you...when it's time. Until then, be the best background the world has ever seen. Your transition into leadership will be much smoother if you are a great follower.
Show everyone else what leadership is about by being dedicated, supportive, and obedient. God will exalt you in due time. Rest assured that God will keep His promises to you. Don't rush into a season that isn't yours. God's timing is perfect, so wait. Let God direct your paths, and watch the opportunities present themselves in ways you couldn't have planned if you tried.
