“The LORD said to him, ‘Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.’
But Moses said, ‘O Lord, please send someone else to do it.’”
Exodus 4:11-13 (NIV)

God wanted to rescue His people from slavery so He chose Moses to go to Pharaoh to demand that the people be released. Moses’ reaction was one of shock and trepidation. Moses said to God, ‘“Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?’ And God said, ‘I will be with you.’” That should have finished it. God is enough for any crisis. But I love the next part. God in His grace allows Moses to show his reservations. Moses goes down a long list of reasons why he could not do what God asked him to do. The Lord is patient with each excuse and in today’s verse we see God’s tender mercy as He explains to Moses how He personally will help Moses speak and will teach him what to say. But Moses still asks God to let someone else go and speak to Pharaoh. So God told Moses that He would send Aaron to go with him and speak for him. What mercy. God loved Moses and Moses felt heard. With God’s help Moses was able to do the job God gave him to do. Today, what are you in fear about? What has God asked you to do that you keep putting off? Tell God about it. Let Him know your concerns. He will help you. He will teach you. He will be your strength. With God, you can do it!

Father, You know me intimately. You know my fears and reservations. How many times have You asked me to do something and all I did was give You excuses? Forgive me, Lord. Empower me to do Your will.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
