And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. Exodus 4:10
When God called Moses to be the mediator between Him and the Israelites, what was Moses’ initial response? His first response is “God I can’t do this”, Moses went on to tell God that he had a speech impediment, maybe Moses stuttered we are not sure, but Moses didn’t feel confident standing in front of all of Egypt and the Hebrews giving them Gods message
Maybe we have done the same thing, maybe God has called us to do something and our response is “Not me God, I can’t do that” But don’t you think God is well aware of our disabilities, God is well aware of our circumstances, but He has called us anyway, Why? Because you are not walking alone, The Lord is your Shepherd
And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say. Exodus 4:11-12
Notice Gods response to Moses plea, Who made your mouth Moses? Who made every human on this planet? Its God Almighty and He knows everything about You, your struggle, your obstacle is no surprise to Him
Then God says to Moses “Go”, God wasn’t looking for excuses, God didnt make a mistake selecting Moses, God is saying “Even though you are slow in speech Moses, you are going to be the mouth of God”
This is the power and glory of God, He can take the ones the world looked down upon, the ones the world has cast aside, and God will raise them up to be His soldiers!
And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart. Exodus 4:13-14
Notice Moses is still afraid to answer Gods calling, think about that! At this point God became angry with Moses, why? Because Moses is not putting his trust in God, hes letting his fear overcome his faith
But God has a solution, He will send his brother Aaron to help him! When we look back at our lives we probably would agree some people have been God sents , people come in your life for the right reasons.
And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do. Exodus 4:15
Notice God is not expecting Moses to figure everything out himself, He said “I will put the words in your mouth and I will teach you what to do” God didnt send Moses out to Egypt and say Good luck
If God has called you to do something, He will walk with you, He will teach you what to do! Dont be afraid to step out in faith, be equipped with the Holy Spirit. “Greater is He living inside of Me, than He who is living in the world” (1John 4:4) Amen!
