JOHN SHIRK – At the burning bush, God was calling Moses to lead His people out of Egypt toward the Promised Land.
Moses needed some encouragement. He had reasons to excuse himself from this assignment.
“Who am I to go to Pharoah to make such a request?”
“What if I go back to the Israelites and they don’t believe that You sent me?”
“I am not eloquent. I am slow of speech.”
“Lord, please send someone else to do it.”
For every excuse that Moses made, God responded with assurances that He would make provisions to help Moses accomplish the task.
Where God calls us into service, He provides us with His presence and resources to help us fulfill His calling on our lives. Moses ran out of excuses, and did go back to Egypt to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.
The calling of Moses is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
