The Move


Moses said to the Lord , “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord ? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.” Then the Lord ’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you. You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.”
Exodus 4:10‭-‬17 NIV

Moses was a man battling insecurities like many of us. The call to go to pharaoh was daunting. So daunting that he remembered that he had a problem with his speech. So stubborn he was that the Lord had to send him accompanied with his brother Aaron. But when the Lord calls us, is He oblivious of our limitations? Certainly not. Just as He said in this passage, He is the One who gave humans their mouths and made them dumb and mute. This same God can transform us into what He so desires to use us to His glory. Nothing can stop Him. Not our disabilities, temperament, personalities etc. God can enable us accomplish His will however daunting it looks to us. The most significant thing is not our inability but His presence with us. Do we imagine what it means to be walking with God? He enables us and strengthens us along the way.
