And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Have you ever looked at yourself as unfit for a task? Have you ever thought of yourself as inadequate? Have you ever come across people that show you up as deficient, saying "he are not skilled enough," "he can't do this job," "he is unfit for this position in the church," "he does not have the right carriage and charisma to pull this off," even you share their perspective because it is obvious that you are lacking. But beloved, rejoice, because there is good news. The One that chose you specializes in choosing the weak, unfit, inadequate, deficient, unskilled, without carriage and charisma and moulding into strong kingdom assets.
Every of God's greatest assets fall into these categories. Moses was a murderer. He could not even speak articulately or make great speeches like the great orators of his time. Despite his inabilities, God used him to lead the greatest slave emancipation of ancient history. Apostle Peter was timid. He couldn't even ask Jesus Christ some key questions; he had to go through Apostle John. He even denied knowing Jesus out of fear. But God trusted him with the leadership of the Church after Jesus ascended to Heaven.
The thing is, God sees only the heart of men and He knows what He has put inside. He saw Gideon, and called him "thou mighty man of valour" (Judges 6:12), but Gideon could only see his inadequacies when God saw a mighty man. God specializes in turning weaklings into men of might. Rejoice in your inadequacies and weaknesses because God's strength will perfect them, because the scriptures say,
"when I am weak, then am I strong" (2 Corinthians 12:10).
Keep winning daily.
I am weak, inadequate, unfit, but I am strong, adequate and fit, because the strength of God is made perfect in my weakness, that all glory will be to the praise of God, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
