Poor self-image. Past failures. Weak faith. We all feel inadequate in different areas of our lives. No one is adequate within themselves to be saved or to serve God effectively. We must respond to God’s call and rely on the Holy Spirit.
Have you ever thought that if you could change something about yourself, you’d feel adequate for the situations you face? We all feel ill-equipped for life’s challenges at times, but we should let these feelings motivate us to trust God and believe His promises.
The Scriptures demonstrate that some of the Lord’s greatest servants (Moses, Gideon, Jeremiah, Paul) felt inadequate for their roles in God’s plan.
