Exodus 4-5

Exodus 4-5

_For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people, and you have not delivered your people at all._Exodus 5;23.png

“For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people, and you have not delivered your people at all.”

After speaking with Pharaoh unsuccessfully the first time, Moses questions why God went him. Nothing good has come from his efforts.

In the middle of God’s plan, things can get complicated. It may even seem as if we’re failing. But God has the vision, the blueprints, and the omniscience; He will see the plan through, and He will see us through. Our job is to be faithful and obedient to Him, but it may take time.

Thank You can that I can trust You, Father. You see the days ahead of me and while they may not be easy, they are yours and they will bring me closer to You. Give me faith to trust in You.

“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?’ He said, ‘But I will be with you.'”

When God describes the land He will give to His people after escaping the Egyptians, Moses questions who he is to undertake this brave endeavor. God’s response is perfect; I will be with you. Moses had nothing to do with God’s plan to rescue the Israelites from oppression other than being obedient to it. God promised that He would go with him and that it would be His strength and sovereignty that would make it happen.

When God calls us to do something, it has nothing to do with us. We are not strong enough, brave enough, or wise enough to make it happen. But when we lean into God’s power in obedience, He will be with us supplying the strength, bravery, and wisdom we lack.

Lord, when You call me to a task, help me to recognize that Your call is a promise to be with me. What an amazing promise that is. Thank You for using me-simple me-to fulfill Your perfect purposes.
