Moses’ response

October 09, 2012 0 0

Exodus 3:7-11

​Then the Lord said, “I have seen how cruelly my people are being treated in Egypt; I have heard them cry out to be rescued from their slave drivers. I know all about their sufferings, and so I have come down to rescue them from the Egyptians and to bring them out of Egypt to a spacious land, one which is rich and fertile and in which the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites now live. I have indeed heard the cry of my people, and I see how the Egyptians are oppressing them. Now I am sending you to the king of Egypt so that you can lead my people out of his country.”

But Moses said to God, “I am nobody. How can I go to the king and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”

​God calls people at various times to different tasks. Our response depends on many things: personal circumstances, personality, our sense of self and our readiness to be disturbed in our settled ways. Throughout this week we will follow people in the Bible whom God called. Their response may encourage us to revisit our own promise to God.

Challenging God, there are times when I feel ill equipped for the tasks at hand. 

Help me overcome the doubts about my self and teach me to trust in the abilities you have given me.
