II Samuel 7:18-19 ” Then King David went in and sat before the Lord, and he said: ‘Who am I, O Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that You have brought me this far? And as if this were not enough in Your sight, O Sovereign Lord, You have also spoken about the future of the house of Your servant.’ “

The Lord calls you to do His work and instead, you balk.  You feel incapable, inept, and unfit for the job.  Wonderful!  You’re in great company!  Here King David, a man after God’s own heart, lamented…”Who am I Lord to be used by You?”  When God called Moses, all he could do was make excuses and ask, “Who am I?” (Exodus 3:11)   Isaiah, when called, could only fixate on his own sinfulness and unclean lips, not on what God was commissioning him to do.(Isaiah 6:5)  Jeremiah tried to justify not obeying the Lord by claiming he was too young to preach. (Jeremiah 1:6)  And Ezekiel when called,  just got angry. (Ezekiel 3:14)  Realize that you are not alone when you feel unworthy and unqualified for the plan God has laid out before you. He would not have called you if He wasn’t absolutely certain you were the best one for the job.  Please understand that the Lord isn’t asking you to do it alone…He’ll be with you every step of the way…He’s only asking for your obedience.
