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.” Exodus 4:10-12 (NIV)
God isn’t asking you to be someone else. He wants you to do what you can. Moses had a variety of excuses as to why he was the wrong choice to do what God instructed him to do. God had to remind Moses that He (God) created mankind. God also reminded Moses that He would be with him during the activity that Moses was called to do. So, when we are obedient to God, we can trust that God will be with us and equip us to carry out the task He wants us to do. Use the questions below to study the verses above.
