However, many years later, he now had the opportunity to make history by leading millions out of slavery. This was the break he needed – but then – reality sets in. Rather than respond with enthusiasm – Moses went into a panic.
“God Who am I to attempt something so great?” ”What will I say, what will I do, what if they don’t believe me? Have you forgotten that I stutter and get nervous in front of people? God PLEASE just send someone else!” “I know I’ve wanted to change my past. I know I’ve spent 40 years wishing there was something I could do about the injustice in Egypt – but are you telling me that you want to use ME to do it?’
It was in that moment that God addressed Moses’ insecurities head on.
God’s Not Looking for All Stars
Moses this is a task I’ve designed for you. I will use you to navigate the nation of Israel through this time in their history. It’s not for anyone else – it’s for you!. I have chosen you – insecurities and all!
I am not looking for an all star. I am looking for someone ordinary to accomplish something extraordinary – so that my name will become famous in all the world! This opportunity has nothing to do with how good you are, but everything to do with How great I am! It’s not about your strengths or your insecurities. Moses – ultimately – this is about me!
