God is All-Powerful
But Moses said, “O Lord, please send someone else to do it.” Exodus 4:13
Excuses - we all have them and sometimes they are legitimate, but what about those excuses that hold you back and keep you from accomplishing something great? The reasons that keep us from significance are usually made up, but we believe them anyway and thus miss out on opportunities.
Moses was full of excuses. Despite growing up in Pharaoh’s house and being highly educated and well connected, he baulked at God’s plan to lead the Israelites out from Egypt. His excuses included “what if they do not believe me or listen to me”, “I am slow of speech and tongue”, “who am I’, “please send someone else to do it”. Do any of these excuses sound familiar to you? Moses ultimately trusted God to sustain him as he, with the help of his brother Aaron led Israel through one of the most miraculous accounts in the Bible. But what about you; are you willing to stop making excuses and trust God to deliver you through the circumstances that plague you and the opportunities He presents?
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh: Because of my mighty hand he will let them go; because of my mighty hand he will drive them out of his country.” Exodus 6:1
Because God is all-powerful, when we trust wholeheartedly in Jesus, we can accomplish great things.
