“And Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11)(AMP)

When God appeared to Moses in the burning bush, He laid out His plan to Moses to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt. Instead of a response of immediate willingness, Moses responded with self-doubt. Moses questioned God’s choice and wisdom in appointing him for the task.

Many of us who suffer from a chronic illness, or who experience daily chronic pain or disability often feel we are of less value than those who do not deal with physical challenges. Like Moses, we too may feel self-doubt, especially if we find ourselves newly stricken with our physical limitations. Because our physical bodies are failing, we often question how God may truly be able to use us to do His work.

Beloved, realize that God is our almighty and all-powerful creator! He has chosen you for a purpose that will not require your physical ability. He may, and most likely will, use your suffering and difficulties for His divine will and plan.

God chooses each of us in unique and special ways to serve Him. Look forward to whatever He places before you each day to accomplish for Him. Praise Him for His almighty power and wisdom, no matter what your physical circumstance. Be willing and open to accept His call for you.

Certainly your circumstance wasn’t Your plan for you. But His plan is good and perfect. Don’t be filled with doubt towards yourself or God. Trust Him. Let Him lead you wherever He will!
