Exodus 4.10-12 And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the Lord? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.
Each one of us is ridden with weaknesses and inabilities. Because of the fall, sin has begotten a race of mankind that falls short of the glory of God. Yet in spite of our condition, God in His grace calls sinners to serve Him and glorify Him.
The account of Moses and God’s call upon him reminds us to trust God’s all-sufficiency. We need to remember, beloved, that Jesus is Lord over the natural world and Lord over all human ability and disability. We should never let our weaknesses become an excuse for disobedience. When God’s Word calls us to act, we need to step out in faith, believing that God will be with you. Each child of God has been called by Christ to share the testimony of Jesus and His grace.
So often we are hindered in our living or speaking boldly for The Lord because of the law of sin and death that resides in our flesh. And yet amazingly, God calls us to live for Him and proclaim His truth. How we need to remember that the Christian life is not lived in our own power and ability, but by His power and ability. Jesus told Paul, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, look for and depend upon the strength of Christ today to will and do of His good pleasure.
