When ADONAI saw that he had gone over to see, God called to him from the middle of the bush, “Moshe! Moshe!” He answered, “Here I am.” He said, “Don’t come any closer! Take your sandals off your feet, because the place where you are standing is holy ground.
Moshe said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and lead the people of Isra’el out of Egypt?” He replied, “I will surely be with you. Your sign that I have sent you will be that when you have led the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.” Moshe said to God, “Look, when I appear before the people of Isra’el and say to them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you’; and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?”
Moshe replied, “But I’m certain they won’t believe me, and they won’t listen to what I say, because they’ll say, ‘ADONAI did not appear to you.'”
Moshe said to ADONAI, “Oh, Adonai, I’m a terrible speaker. I always have been, and I’m no better now, even after you’ve spoken to your servant! My words come slowly, my tongue moves slowly.”
But he replied, “Please, Lord, send someone else—anyone you want!” At this, ADONAI’s anger blazed up against Moshe; he said, “Don’t you have a brother, Aharon the Levi? I know that he’s a good speaker. In fact, here he is now, coming out to meet you; and he’ll be happy to see you. You will speak to him and put the words in his mouth; and I will be with your mouth and his, teaching you both what to do.
How many times have we as believers been like Moshe, called by ADONAI and we jump to saying “here I am, I am ready!” Then we find out what the task is and start making excuses. To every one of Moshe’s excuses ADONAI already had the answer. Still after all this provision Moshe was afraid to move forward, his “God let someone else do this,” finally provokes ADONAI to anger. I am sure if Moshe had dwelled in his own selfishness there would have been another to follow ADONAI and free his people, but how ever unwilling Moshe did as commanded and as God cleared out the obstacles for him time and again and Moshe’s trust became such that he is called a friend of God. Abba please bear with me when I am timid and afraid to follow. Give me boldness and courage to stand up for Your Word Yeshua no matter what even though I have failed in the past. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
