1 Then the Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.” 13 But he said, “Oh, my Lord, please send someone else.” 14 Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses and he said, “Is there not Aaron, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Behold, he is coming out to meet you, and when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.
When reading this I felt the Lord speaking to me a message. Will you be willing or not? The Lord in this chapter of the Bible was telling Moses that he was going to be used in a mighty way, Moses out of fear began to give excuses. This resulted in God’s anger, and He instead used Aaron to speak His the message. Even though Moses was still used in a lot of ways, he doubted the Lord power to use anybody. This Chapter has haunted me since, reading it. am I willing, or am I asking God to take this cup? Browning is a hard place for ministry and I have found myself discontent a lot of the time. I have been making up excuses to not be used here, or to talk to different people; “I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue”(vs.10). I have been given a chance to be in Browning at such a time as this, am I going to waste it? Again the Lord asked me are you willing or will I use somebody else?
Application: I will spend time in prayer today for the next time the Lord tells me to step out into faith and talk to someone, that I may walk in complete boldness.
