“But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.” Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses.” Exodus 4:13–14, NIV.

Can you identify with Moses’ feelings of reluctance and inadequacy? “No God, not me, please choose someone else. Don’t you know my weaknesses and limitations?” Personally, I have been at this place an embarrassing number of times in my life.

God called Moses to be the deliverer, but fear, insecurity, and maybe even pride took the place of faithful obedience to God’s commandment and calling. God’s anger burned when Moses helplessly begged, “Please send someone else.”

It was God’s mercy, not approval, which permitted Aaron to be Moses’ voice. God ordained Moses to be the spokesman and the deliverer to the captives in Egypt and was angry at Moses’ excuses, especially since He affirmed his calling and power at the burning bush (Ex. 3:9–21).

God will never involve Himself in a dream that you’re able to achieve alone. Please stop depending on someone else’s abilities when God has designed you to do it. Moses was uniquely chosen for his mission and, today, God wants to use you to trigger the miraculous. Go ahead, be courageous and honor God by obeying His voice. You’ve got this.

Prayer: Lord, help me trust in Your ability and not my weaknesses. I want to depend on Your strength and not my frailty. I’m sorry if I have rejected Your call. From now on, give me the strength and courage to say, “Yes, Lord.”

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3, KJV. Do you know those nights? The kind of night when tears hit your pillow as life overwhelms you or the nights you toss back and forth. Sometimes, we miss…

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” Psalm 37:23, KJV. Growing up my dad taught me how to play chess. I am still an amateur but I love spending time with him, so I will sit there for hours knowing…

“He got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.” John 13:4–5, NIV. The mood is somber;…

My choice is you, God, first and only.  And now I find I’m your choice! You set me up with a house and yard. And then you made me your heir! (Psalm 16:5-6 MSG) We wake up every day and make a conscious decision to choose a God-centered life. God knew…

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3, NIV) One of the first arguments I will often hear from friends who claim to be atheist is that too many bad things happen.  I think we have all…

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). I think we all joke about how terrible driver’s license photos are. I’m not sure how they can be used as identification since they seem to…
