Even after knowing and loving God for many, many years I still struggle with feeling unworthy and inferior. I’m reminded of Moses and his inferiority complex. In Exodus 4:1-17, the Lord called Moses to go back to Egypt and free the Hebrews.

Moses gives reasons why he isn’t the man for the job. In his mind, he was inferior. He was raised in a palace … what could he offer the Hebrew slaves? He fled Egypt after committing murder. He stuttered, which he believed disqualified him from public speaking.

This is God’s response to Moses in verses 11-12:“The LORD said to him, ‘Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.’”

The Lord knew all about Moses’ failures and weaknesses but still called him anyway! God used Moses to set two million Hebrews free from captivity.Our Savior uses all the parts of us, not just the parts that we have all together. Why? He made all the parts, even the “inferior” ones! What you view as the inferior, disqualifying part of you is the very thing the Lord can use to do the miraculous!
