“Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants and in the sight of the people.”
When God called Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, Moses was afraid. He didn’t think the people would respect him and he didn’t think he was capable of the task before him. But as we see in this verse, God was faithful to His promise to be with Moses. The people of Egypt see the signs that Moses performs and have respect and fear for him.
When we doubt ourselves, we must remember that God is faithful to His word. He will give us the strength we need. Moses didn’t do anything remarkable; he simply submitted himself to God and was obedient to God’s instruction. That’s what God wants from us, too.
Lord, help me to trust You more. I don’t want to lean on my own understanding; instead, let me rest in Your power.
