How To Accomplish A Project For Which You Feel Unqualified
Exo. 3:10-11 – “Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt. But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?”
God was informing Moses that he had been chosen to be the Project Manager of leading the children of Israel out of the Egyptian Bondage.
So how do you accomplish a project for which you feel totally unqualified?
Remember if someone has asked you to be the leader of a project it is because they have faith in you. (If you are working somewhere and you are asked because your supervisor wants to see you fail, then seriously you really need to be looking for another job.)
God asks Moses to lead because He believes he is capable of accomplishing this task. Plus, He knows that He is going to be there to help him complete this project.
Moses’ real problem is he lacks faith in God at this time.
He tries to hide his trust issues of God behind the veil of “Who am I?” A lot of people have this same problem. We don’t trust God will help us finish the job at hand, but this is difficult to admit. So we place the blame on ourselves by saying we are the smallest, the weakest, or some other bodily handicap or character flaw.
If you want to accomplish something great then remember who asked you and trust their judgment of you. If you have an idea to accomplish something great and no one has asked you, then ask yourself where the idea came from?
If you are being asked to accomplish a huge task do you know those in authority? Do you know how to approach them and when? Can you speak their language?
How has life educated you for this opportunity?
Remember most of your education didn’t come from the classroom unless you are or were a teacher. Your education has continued to come from what you have learned in everyday life.
Remember the lessons you learned in life and apply them as you accomplish the project that you have been asked to do. Always remember you can trust God to support you.
Moses learned he could trust God the One who asked him to accomplish the project of leading the children out of Egypt.

A college education never hurt anyone who was willing to keep on learning after he/she got it.
