Scripture:
“But Moses said to the Lord, ‘If the Israelites will not listen to me, why would Pharaoh listen to me, since I speak with faltering lips?’” ~Exodus 6:12

Observation:
Moses, despite having been chosen directly by God, is insecure. He fears he will be ineffective because he’s not eloquent enough to square off against Pharaoh. The notes in my study Bible suggest Moses is just making excuses.

Application:
I almost didn’t do this podcast. I don’t like the sound of my speaking voice and I was afraid that others might not like it either. Am I smart enough or eloquent enough to handle everything that God might want me to do in my life? No. If I were a genius or exceptionally gifted, people might look at any good deeds I do and attribute them to me. God prefers to use weak people; that way He gets the credit. I decided to do this podcast anyway and let God’s purposes be fulfilled. Whatever they are.

Prayer:
God, use me to do something I could never do alone. Do something that when people look at me they say, “only God could have done that.” Just help me to be faithful in what you have for me to accomplish.
