Who, Me?


Today’s Scripture: Exodus 3-6
Read it online at the Bible Gateway: (NIV) (NASB) (KJV) (The Message)

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26

Moses was raised as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, but through a series of circumstances he found himself on the backside of the desert, tending somebody else’s sheep. It was there an event occurred that led him to become one of the greatest men the world has ever known. Here’s how it happened: God called to Moses out of the midst of a bush that burned but was not consumed. When Moses saw this strange sight, he turned aside for a closer look. And God revealed Himself with these words: “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” Then He told Moses, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them” (Exodus 3:6-8).

Can you imagine the joy that must have flooded Moses’ heart? God Himself was going to take action to deliver the children of Israel from the hand of their oppressors. Then God said, “So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”

Moses was dumbfounded. “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” he said. The question was so irrelevant that God didn’t even bother to answer it. Instead He said, “I will be with you.”

Christian, are you tempted to back out of something, to tell God to get somebody else to do it? Remember in whose power you go, and then launch out and watch the hand of God at work.

Prayer

Lord, I feel inadequate for the task ahead, but I press on, knowing that You will go with me. Amen.

To Ponder

God delights in using ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
