I was reading about the Exodus today and something jumped out at me that I really hadn’t paid attention to fully before. I noticed it, but it did not fully make sense to me until today. All throughout the first few chapters, Moses responded to the Lord about his inadequacies. For example, Moses responded to the Lord’s direction in Exodus 4:10;
“‘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.” ‘ Exodus 4:10
How often do we feel the same way when God puts a dream or a desire in our heart? How many times do you or I have a task that is given to us yet we do not feel qualified to do it? It is then that God reminds us that He will give us the strength and will qualify us to do what He has called us to do.
‘I can do all things through him who strengthens me. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. ‘
It is a reminder to us that no matter what desire or dream that God has put into our hearts, He will give us the tools to accomplish. What inadequacies do you need God’s help in?
