“Sometimes our inability is the very reason why God appoints us to a particular assignment” – Kenneth Kuykendall

     When God called Moses to deliver the children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage, Moses replied with the question, “Who am I?” He recognized his weakness and inability, and felt incapable of such a monumental task.  But God didn’t respond to the insecurity of Moses; instead, He answered the question “Who am I?” with a revealing statement about Himself. The Lord said, “I AM WHO I AM.”

Sometimes our inability is the very reason why God appoints us to a particular assignment.  God works through our infirmities, our handicaps, and our weaknesses.  Who, but God, could take a stuttering, backslidden, nomad-on-the-run and use him to deliver millions of Jewish slaves out of the world empire of Egypt? Who, but God, could take a little shepherd boy and use him to slay the gargantuan Philistine?  Who, but God, could take a thorn in the flesh of an apostle and use it to advance the gospel throughout the province of Rome?

Our ability for ministry is not substantiated through self-sufficiency or self-revelation. You may ask, “Who am I?” and never receive an answer.  But when you know the GREAT I AM, you are equipped to accomplish any assignment – not by your strength, but His.
