Molly’s Minute: Why God Would Choose Us

January 13, 2021

In the book of Exodus, God calls Moses to help Him bring the Israelites out of Egypt. And He tells Moses to go and speak before Pharaoh.

But Moses doesn’t think he can do it

He tells God that he can’t speak to Pharaoh, because he’s “slow of speech and of tongue.” And he basically begs God to send somebody else.

A lot of us would say that we aren’t good enough to be chosen or used by God.

But with God, being chosen isn’t about us.

When Moses points out to God that he isn’t a good speaker, God responds, “Who has made man’s mouth… Is it not I, the Lord? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”

It’s not up to us to be good enough to do God’s work. It’s up to Him

And we can be sure that, whatever work He’s chosen us for, He is good enough to get it done.

Exodus 4:10-12 “But Moses said to the LORD, ‘Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.’ Then the LORD said to him, ‘Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.'”
