God’s purpose is bigger than your current situation.

Exodus 4:10 But Moses pleaded with the LORD, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.”

When God select you, He does not change you, He continues to use what is there and make it suit His purpose.

Exodus 4:17 And take your shepherd’s staff with you, and use it to perform the miraculous signs I have shown you.”

The genes from both your parents is what was required for you to be formed.

Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations."
How you came into this world might cause distress but to God it was not a surprise. Jeremiah 33:15 'In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David A Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.

Focus on the purpose that you were brought here for. There is a lot to leave for.

Know your purpose and make decisions that are in line with it.

Matthew 26:24 The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.”

When you know your purpose there are things that you know you can do but can’t because of your purpose. When you make decisions that are line with your purpose, those decisions might make you unpopular because people are used to complying to a group behavior. Those whose who have money give thought in their giving and those without money just give away money because they feel good about it. What we love might not be for us.
When you serve a master, it’s not that you are doing better than others to be recognized, you are just available to be used. Joshua did everything that the other people with Moses were doing, but there was something extra that the he did in his own capacity because he knew he was not the same as the others. Exodus 33:11 So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.

Knowing your purpose helps helps you decide between good and godly. Even though Jesus knew that Judas will betray Him, he kept him close because He understood His purpose here on earth. Knowing his purpose made Him think right and sometimes his decisions were not popular. Matthew 16:21-22 From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!”

When you have a purpose in life, you become grounded.

Philippians 2:5-8 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

What is your excuse in doing God’s work?

Exodus 4:10 Then Moses said to the LORD, “O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”

When God ask you to do something, it’s not because he ran out of people, it’s because its’ part of the purpose. Romans 9:20 But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?”

When you don’t understand, don’t ask God questions, trust him. An excuse will not exempt you from doing what you are suppose to do.
