But Moses said to the LORD, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” Then the LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.” But he said, “Oh, my Lord, please send someone else.” Exodus 4:10-13 (ESV)
Go And Do
What do you know about my call on your life? I know that you will ask me to do things for you. Yes, I will. What else? I know that you will ask me to do things for you that I cannot possible do all by myself. Why would I ask you to do what you cannot do by yourself? You want me to come to rely on you. You want me to know that you are working in and through my life. You want me to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. Apart from you I can do nothing of eternal value. That’s right.
How have you responded to me when I have asked you to do what you could not do by yourself? I have argued with you many times. I have found a hundred different reasons why you couldn’t possibly be asking me to do what you have asked me to do for you. I found a dozen other things to do for you instead of what you were asking me to do for you. I have also asked you to send someone else instead of me. In every way possible I have tried to avoid the difficult things that you have asked me to do for you. Why is that? I have been afraid. What have you been afraid of? I have been afraid of failing. What is a bigger failure, failing at trying to do what I asked you to do or failing to do what I asked you to do? I have never thought of that before. Do you have an answer for me? It would be a far bigger failure to fail to do what you asked me to do than to fail trying to do what you asked me to do. That’s right.
Do you trust me? Do you have faith in me? Yes, I trust you. Yes, I have faith in you. Do you believe that I will make you able to do all that I ask of you? Yes, I believe that you will help me to do whatever you ask of me. That’s good. Then go and do what I am asking of you. Yes Lord, I will go and do whatever you ask of me. I will be with you to help you.
Lord, I know you will challenge my faith. I know you will ask me to do what I have never done before. I know you will ask me to do what I cannot do without your help. I know you will cause me to rely on you. Help me to say yes to all that you ask of me. Amen
