Inadequacy: A Barrier or A Blessing, Part 1

February 15, 2018

You’re not good enough.

We’ve all been harassed by the voice of inadequacy. And whether our insecurity focuses on our bodies, jobs, or relationships, it always strikes where we’re most vulnerable, happy to remind us of all the ways we don’t measure up.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. In this message, Dr. Stanley dives into the writings of Paul to uncover the apostle’s key to dealing with feelings of inadequacy. Don’t let the sly voices of comparison and fear rob you of the God-ordained opportunities in your life.

Why is the Bible such a treasure for believers? Why is it that Christians cling to it with such faith and fervor? You would be right if you said it is because the Bible is God's revelation about Himself and the way He interacts with people.

And I wouldn’t want to miss it.” —Charles. F. Stanley
