A Perfect God, Imperfect People, and Perfect Plans is full of Biblical examples to show you that God has used and still uses “imperfect people ” to fulfill His perfect plans and perfect purposes for their lives if they are willing to obey Him.

Book Excerpt 
Has God been asking you to do something for Him yet you have been dismissing yourself because of your imperfections?
Have you been wondering “Who am I that God should use me?”
If so, understand that God uses imperfect and insignificant people to achieve His perfect and significant plans if they obey and cooperate with Him.

Gideon
The first Biblical example of God using “imperfect people” who were perfect for His perfect plans is Gideon.  

God used Gideon (Judges 6-7) who was fearfully threshing wheat in a winepress to lead an army of just 300 men to defeat Israel’s enemies who were as numerous as locusts. This was the Gideon who said he was unqualified to save Israel because his clan was the weakest and he was the least important person in his father’s house.

But, God already knew what Gideon thought about himself and how his clan was viewed by the rest of the Israelites when He chose him as His Commander in Chief for He saw A mighty man of valor (Judges 6:12) in Gideon even when Gideon did not see anything great in himself.  

Therefore don’t let your low self esteem or low socio-economic status or the challenge’s magnitude stop you from doing God’s bidding. Understand also that when you are “weak”, then God is strong on your behalf and let Him work on you and on your weaknesses as you work on His will and His plans for your life.

Recognize also that Gideon’s fear did not flee overnight. He kept asking God for signs and God kept providing them until the point when Gideon truly believed that he could do it and he went and did it with God’s help. 

Therefore, even when you step out in faith and obedience to do what God is asking you to do and you still feel afraid because of persisting problems, pray for more faith since it is the antidote for fear by saying, “Lord I believe, help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24) and continue walking and working in faith.  
Work in faith even if you have to work at night like Gideon did when God asked him to destroy Baal’s altar and build an altar for God on top of it. Gideon obeyed God and destroyed Baal’s altar and built one for God during the night because He feared the men of his household and of his city to do it by day. (Judges 6:27)
