Verse of the Day

Then the LORD asked Moses, “Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the LORD? [NLT] Exodus 4:11


Following God’s appearance to Moses in the form of the burning bush and his new assignment to return to Egypt to lead the Israelites out of their misery; we cannot blame Moses from shrinking from what He thought was going to be a perilous, thankless and dangerous journey. He understood what it meant to go back to Egypt. After all, let’s face it, he ran away because he killed an Egyptian, but now after so many years in hiding, God was telling him to return. I’m sure in that moment he would have wished he wasn’t nosy enough to find out about the strange sight of the burning bush (Ex.3:3). Of course Moses came up with all manners of excuses why he was unsuitable, but God in His infinite mercy condescended to answer the excuse of Moses. Matthew Henry wrote that “Even self-diffidence, when it hinders us from duty, or clogs us in duty, is very displeasing to the Lord”. As much as our hesitation in our duty is displeasing to God, He is always ready to work with us until we get it right. In as much as Moses was spitting out one excuse after another, God still humoured him and tried to answer all his excuses. So next time you look at a challenge and you think, how impossible it would be for you to deal with, remember that God has already given you all the necessary knowhow to overcome that challenge. And that my friend is all you need to know in the day of adversity! You have all it takes to make that business, that career, that task a success! Now stop dithering and get to it! #verseoftheday #ExodusChallenge
