PostSubject: God will do the work.   Mon Apr 30, 2007 3:51 pm

Many people have difficulty being used of the Lord because they have an inferirority complex. And they have a lot of excuses for why they’re not able to fulfill their potential.
I once had that problem. I wasn’t born with an inferiority complex, but the enemy oppressed me with it, and I had to be delivered.

Exodus 3 shows us that Moses had this problem. He felt he was
not good enough for God to use because he thought he was the one who had to
deliver God’s people out of Egyptian bondage. He told God, “I’m not good enough.
I have no reputation for the people to receive me. They’re not going to pay any
attention to me.”

Moses had to be loosed from an inferiority complex, and
the way to be loosed is to humble yourself. Some people think they’re humble
when they say, “I’m nobody. The Lord can’t use me.” But that’s not humility;
that’s false pride. That’s saying, “It’s all up to me and what I can
do.”

When the Israelites stood before the Red Sea as the Egyptians were
chasing them, Moses reassured the people of God’s faithfulness. God said,
“Moses, take out your rod, stretch it out over the sea, and you will all go
across.” By that time, Moses had lost his inferiority complex because he finally
got the picture that it was God and not him doing the work.

When God calls you to do something, He doesn't need your expertise. All He needs is a willing vessel, someone who will cooperate with Him. Then He will do the work.


When God calls me to do something, I am a willing vessel so
He can do the work through me.

Good point, very convicting. I really need to stop doing that.
