Moses next excuse

Exodus 4.12

Exodus 4:10-12
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.”

11 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? 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”

Despite all that God has said and demonstrated, Moses is still full of excuses and asks for pardon. First, it was “Who Am I?” I am so unworthy. Now it is, “I am inadequate.” I’m not eloquent, I stutter, words come off my tongue in a slow way. Once again, the Lord meets Moses where he is and assures him, I will be with you. Remember, I created you, your mouth included. I will be your very present help. Just like I just turned your hand to be leprous and whole again. I’ve got your tongue.

NOW GO; I, the God who is speaking to you, will help you speak and know what to say. NOW GO!

Most of us are familiar with the words Moses spoke. We have either said them or had them spoken to us as we have encouraged others to GO. As the enemy tries to implant fear into our hearts and arrest our words, let’s be reminded that the Word of God is true. I am reminded of our Jesus’ words when speaking to His disciples. 

Mark 13:11
“Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.”

 Matthew 10:20
for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.”

Luke 21:15
“For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.”

Matthew 10.20

    1. Bless you for “going”. We are all inadequate but praise God, He is not and He is with you! Pray your way thru, walk in faith, hold to His Word, hand, and Spirit and He will show you great and marvelous things that you have never seen before…all for His glory!
