On feeling inadequate

“Not that I have already obtained all this or have already been made perfect…” Philippians 3:12

There is a sense in which we are never going to feel completely ready for what God asks us to do.

Moses felt inadequate for his task and said, “O Lord, please send someone else to do it” (Exodus 4:13). Jeremiah felt he was too young and said, “Ah Sovereign Lord, I do not know how to speak; I am only a child” (Jeremiah 1:6).

Yet it is these feelings of inadequacy that teach us to trust the Lord and look to Him for the help and guidance that we need. After all if we felt completely capable we would be tempted to forge ahead with our own ideas and probably miss what God wanted to do.

Paul in the above verse is also saying he has more to learn but he is not sitting around waiting until he is perfect. Rather he is pressing on to fulfil God’s purpose for his life.

Perhaps God is asking you to fulfil a different ministry to that which you have previous fulfilled. Maybe you don’t feel ready for a change. But if we wait until we feel ready to do those things God has for us we will never get started. Instead we need to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, remembering He is the author and perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:2) so that we can move towards fulfilling God’s purposes for our lives
