There was a manager who had to select someone for an assignment. Two members of staff applied for the role and they were equally qualified. The manager prayed, but there was no answer and he felt inadequate and unprepared for the meeting. At that moment in time, the Lord prompted him to let the two staff members decide between themselves who would be the better candidate.
He is Adequate
The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry to Me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward!
Lift up your rod and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and the Israelites shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
When God called Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, he felt that he was the least qualified to take that role. Rather than look at the excellent training that he had through living in Pharaoh’s palace, he began to list all of his inadequacies. Moses almost lost his privilege by asking God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11).
God’s purpose for Moses’ life was distinct and definite, He assured him saying ‘I will send you’.
Like Moses, we may be questioning God and doubting the things that He has placed in our hands. If we change our focus to what He has given us, His true and faithful Word will change our attitudes so that we will trust in what He has already said to us.
Today God wants us to know that we may look to our past failures and feel inadequate, but He is able to help us in this and every situation.
You know all my inadequacies, but I am adequate in You. I live with that confidence. What is in me is greater than what is in the world. Amen.
God Bless you
