You know how, in grade school, teachers ask students to pick a buddy for a project? Or how about when kids pick classmates to be on their teams? I never thought about it like this before today, but when we choose God, we team up with our buddy, our partner, a co-missionary of sorts, to accomplish something together.
When God told Moses to go back to Egypt and to see the Pharaoh and bring God’s people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt, he was scared. He told God he wasn’t a good speaker and was a bit slow of speech and tongue.
Gods response to Him made me laugh this morning. Here is how God replied to Moses’ excuse:
“Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing or the blind? Have not I, the Lord? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.” Exodus 4:11-12 NKJV
He reminded Moses of his Creator! Prior to this, God had already told Moses every detail about the mission to rescue the Israelites. God told him where to go, who to go see, who to gather together to go with him to Pharoh, what to say to God’s people and what to say to Pharoh. He even gave Moses a few miracles to do, so people would believe he brought a message straight from God!
God is the best buddy we will ever have! Just as He prepared Moses to accomplish His will, He will prepare us also. And… He will not only prepare us but He will go with us! We never go alone.
God will make us prepared partners with Him to do His will. Wow:)
How little our faith seems when you ask us to do certain things. But You made us, so You already know what we can do! You see what we do not. Please guide our minds to remember Your goodness and faithfulness over the years, and give us the courage to follow You, wherever, whenever.We love You so much and give You all the glory! Amen
