“So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.” But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”…”Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.””
Exodus 3:10-11, 4:10-13 NIV
Don’t you feel a kind of kinship with Moses here? At the age of 80 he is completely lacking confidence. Even after God tells Moses He, the God of his ancestors, would give him everything he needed to do the task He set out for him, Moses wanted to duck tail and run from the mission. But he didn’t! Our Lord, in His grace, gave Moses a helper in his brother Aaron, and Moses DID rise to the occasion.
Is God calling you out of your comfort zone to accomplish kingdom work? He equips those He calls. You are in good hands.🚦
