Moses was designed for his destiny, even though he couldn’t see it at first. God called him to go back to Egypt and lead the Israelites out of captivity. But Moses didn’t feel ready or able. He said, “God, who am I that I should go to Pharoah and bring them out?” He then gave God every excuse about why he couldn’t do it, He had a speech impediment. He wasn’t perfect. He had killed a man in an attempt to defend an Israelite slave.
God wasn’t concerned about any of Moses’ weaknesses. He told Moses, You just tell them who sent you. It’s not about you, Moses. It’s about me. What matters is who I am, not who you are.
God is saying the same thing to us today: Don’t worry about what you don’t have. Don’t worry about what or who you aren’t. I am all you need. I am your strength and protection, your wisdom and provision. I am with you wherever you go.
God has a track record of calling people to do things beyond what seems their natural ability. Look at David in the Bible, A shepherd boy who defeated a giant, the enemy of his people, and he became king. Look at Peter, a hotheaded, unschooled fisherman, who became a respected apostle in the church.
It’s easy to feel unqualified and overwhelmed, even when you know in your heart what you are called to do. But that feeling of inadequacy is good. That means you know you need God, and you can’t fulfill your destiny without him.
God isn’t looking at your faults or weaknesses. He looks at his ability to work through you. He invests in you, molds you, and prepares you, using every experience you have and redeeming everything for something good. That means every season of your life has a purpose. It is training ground. Even when you can’t see it, God is at work, adding to you, shaping you. You are growing in faith and being prepared for your next step.
