Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You. (N.K.J.V.)
I’m so grateful for the abundance of mercy, which flows from the hand of God. I’m thankful for His promises. They cannot be broken.
I’ve been reading a lot of the Old Testament. Sometimes, I need a refresher on the stories that are so beautifully illustrated under the old law. Today, as I was continuing my reading on the life of Moses I found myself, once again, overwhelmed by the mercy and grace of God.
And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant. (N.K.J.V.)
God made a promise to Abraham and He was not about to forget it. He heard the cries of the Children of Israel and He remembered His covenant. He had a plan to use Moses to begin the fulfillment of the promise.
If you are familiar with the story of Moses, you know his apprehension. He couldn’t understand why God was calling him to speak (Exodus 4:10). In Verse 11, God says this to Moses, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute, deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
After this, Moses still showed apprehension.
When God tells us to go, we need to go. I recently heard someone say, “God does not call the qualified; He qualifies the called.” God can, and will, use anyone. We must be willing and obedient. We have to push aside our insecurities and not be afraid to do what He tells us.
Are you being obedient and pressing on towards the call? Or, is fear holding you back?
