How Unqualified Are You?


The world is full of people in positions they are totally unqualified for.


Well, that is to the untrained eye.


You see God enjoys using people who most of us would consider unqualified. Let’s unpack this a bit, shall we?


When God steps in and grabs ahold of people who would identify as unqualified we witness such greatness.


God is great, powerful, wise, strong, capable, and all-knowing. He knows our beginning and our end all while He knits us together in our mother’s womb.


When Jesus takes the wheel our weakness no longer limit us because God works through those. We see that indeed nothing is impossible with God. We become freed from worldly beliefs, excessive people pleasing, limited mindset’s, corporate thinking, and all of our worldly limitations. We become freed from the shame of our past, failures, embarrassments and guilt because God can and will use all of that to help others in their life right where they are! What a beautiful thing this is!


I want to talk to you ladies today about feeling unqualified. If you noticed I didn’t say being unqualified I said feeling unqualified. There is a difference, a big one I believe.


According to Google dictionary being means existence, reality, actuality.


Feeling means an emotional state or reaction.


Just because we feel a certain way doesn’t mean it’s reality or actuality.


Unqualified means:

  1. Not officially recognized as a practitioner of a particular profession or activity through having satisfied the relevant conditions or requirements.
  2. Not competent or sufficiently knowledgeable to do something.


So you may not be officially recognized as far as worldly standards go but God is far greater. He is the Alpha and the Omega the beginning and the end.


Therefore when He calls us into something the worldly definition of qualified no longer matters. It is obsolete. What God has put together no man can stop. That my friends is a promise we can stand on.


Not feeling qualified isn’t the same as being unqualified. When God leads you into something know that He has qualified you for that.


Does this mean it’ll be easy for you? No, the truth is it won’t always be easy. But when God is on your side you already know you are going to make it.


Philippians 1:6 tells us, “I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”


So what can you do when you are feeling unqualified?


Go back to who God says you are in scripture. Look for specific scripture where God talks about how He’s created you, given each specific gifts, created a plan for you, and has plans to prosper you and not to harm you. If you need assistance getting started you can grab a free list of scripture I’ve compiled by clicking here. (no opt-in required)



Personalize the scripture when possible. Add in your name and repeat these to yourself randomly throughout your day. Bonus Tip: Set them as reminders on your phone so you can read them more often to help your subconscious absorb them as truth.



Recall things God has shown or told you in the past or even situations He has brought you through. This will help you see how God has been working in your life and He won’t ever leave you.



Read in scripture others who God called upon and did great works because of their weakness. There are numerous people in the bible who felt totally unqualified or seemed to have bad “luck” over and over yet God used them. Some examples are Mose, Esther, Joshua, Joseph, Abraham, Sarah, Peter, and Paul. You will see how God used them no matter what the circumstances looked like. He will do the same in your life as well.



Pray, this seems like a no-brainer but I had to include it. Ask God to reveal to you what He see’s in you, to quiet your inner critic, and to help you believe in His ability to use you beyond your imagination. You can even ask God to place people in your life to be a mirror of His love for you and to point out the great gifts He has created you with.



Just to recap when you are feeling unqualified go back to these 5 things. Read God’s word specifically what He says about you, personalize the scripture by adding in your name when possible and read it aloud to yourself, recall things God has previously done in your life/situation’s He has brought you through, look for specific people in the bible where God worked because of their weakness, and most importantly pray.
