But Moses said to God “Who am I, that I should go to Pharoah and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” – Exodus 3:11
When Moses was called to free the Israelites he wasn’t all that sure he wanted to do it. Pick someone else, he said. Someone who can speak more clearly. Surely there is someone better qualified than me. But God had already chosen Moses for this particular task.
There is something I believe God has called me to do. He has prepared me, He has given me the tools, the training, and even the desire. But my fears got in the way. My insecurities. So I said to God “pick someone else”. Someone more qualified, someone better, more capable.
I bargained with God. Look God, I can do this for you instead. Or this, or even that. And He told me it was great to do this or this or even that. Because all of those things are good things. But it is not what I have asked of you.
So I’m going to face my fears and trust that God knows what’s best. Because then not only will I have peace with Him, I will also have peace with myself.
