I don’t know about you but I feel inadequate often when it comes to God’s purposes for my life. I look at the things He is leading me into and I am like, how am I going to do this Lord? And with that comes the insecurities. Thoughts like,
I am not worthy
I am not qualified
Who am I to do this?
Where do I even start?
And so many more like thoughts ravage my mind.
Recently I was feeling very insecure but God reminded me of a few things that I want to encourage you with if you are facing the same feelings of insecurity.
- God’s purpose for your life will always be infinitely greater than your current abilities and strengths
- He knows very well that you are not able to accomplish His purpose in your own strength.
- He is very in tune with your weaknesses and failings but in His grace and mercy He has still chosen you!
- He wants you to trust Him wholeheartedly every step of the way because that’s the only way you can accomplish what He has called you to.
Another thing I realized is that the devil wants you to focus on your weaknesses, and sins so that you can disqualify yourself from God’s calling. Remember Moses.
When God called him, what did he do? Instead of saying yes Lord, he started giving excuses why he wasn’t the right candidate. Excuse after excuse he gave until he pleaded,
“But he said, “Oh, my Lord, please send someone else”
The answer to feeling overwhelmed and out of your depth is not digging in and going at it alone in your own strength but it’s diving deeper into God and seeking His strength and wisdom.
Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy. You are enough because God calls you His son and daughter. He chose you not because you were strong enough, clever enough, rich enough, born in the right neighborhood, or because you went to the right school. It’s because He loved you and extended grace to you.
Whatever you do, don’t talk yourself out of his purpose. Take your insecurities to Him and drop them at His feet. Unpack every burden you feel and don’t hold anything back.
The Lord has amazing things planned for you so trust Him every step of the way.
Bless you friends
