Have you ever felt like you weren’t good enough to do something God was telling you to do? Whenever I feel like this I’m always brought back to the story of Moses.
In Christianity we often regard Moses as an exceptional human being despite his flaws. God used him to perform all supernatural related miracles connected to the Exodus of Israelites, which was nothing short of spectacular. I mean, from the signs God gave him to show Pharaoh to the plagues, and from parting the red sea everything else; God used Moses in a great way. But how many of you know that his calling didn’t start off that way.
Exodus 3-4 discusses the call Moses and if you’re struggling this area you might notice some similarities between your life and the life of Moses. Right after God gives Moses his initial instructions in chapter 3 Moses begins to have a kind of conversation with God that I’m very familiar with.
When Moses says “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to you’?” (Exodus 4:1), God gave him signs.
When Moses said, “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.” in verse 10, God says that not a problem because I created your mouth and I will teach you what to say.
Then Moses straight up says “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else in verse 13! Yet still, God still chose to work with him where he was by bringing his brother Aaron into the mix.
Sometimes we are so quick to disqualify ourselves from the things that God is leading to us do, but I'm here to tell you don't do it! Perhaps like Moses you’re worried about what people will think about you, don’t feel like your qualified, or just straight up don’t want to do it. But can I tell you, if God is telling you to do something chances are it’s bigger than yourself.
Moses' obedience had a generational impact on millions of people and for all you know your yes is directly connected to someone else’s break through. So, don’t allow fear, insecurities, and stubbornness to keep you from following through. Your obedience serves a greater purpose.
