Moses is one of the biggest names in the Bible. Moses is the guy who parted the Red Sea, led the Israelites out of Egypt, hit a rock to make water, and handed down God’s law (a.k.a the 10 commandments). He was God’s mouth piece.
It’s easy to notice the big things. But what about what makes Moses just like us? Moses questioned God multiple times. He asked God things like, “What if they don’t believe me? What if they don’t listen to me?” Go equipped him and gave him everything he would need. Yet, Moses still had his doubts. In Exodus 4:10 we read Moses’ concern when he says, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you’ve spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.” Moses didn’t trust that the all powerful Lord would help him speak and pleaded He send someone else.
God has asked us to do great things like He asked of Moses, but like Moses we all make excuses. “But I don’t have the money to adopt a kid.” “But I don’t have the time to go to Nicaragua.” “But I’ve never sang in front of anyone before.” “But I don’t like to read.” “But I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.”
What has God asked you to do? What excuses are you making?
God wants to use you. Stop making excuses and step up.
