It’s Not About You

Verse of the day:
“Look! The cry of the people of Israel has reached me, and I have seen how harshly the Egyptians abuse them. Now go, for I am sending you to Pharaoh. You must lead my people Israel out of Egypt.” (Exodus 3:9-10)
A few weeks ago Pastor shared in his message about how who the messenger is that God chooses to use is not always important. He referenced how God chose to use a donkey to get the word out when He needed to. (Numbers 22:21-39) This is either humbling or encouraging depending on how your ego is doing today. It’s amazing that God would choose to use any of us. We are flawed, prone to sin, and unreliable, but He chooses to use us anyways!
Reading through the conversation between God and Moses in Exodus chapter 3 is really interesting and relatable. God had seen the cruel treatment of the Israelites and the time was now to act. He could have acted all on His own to set them free from their captivity but He chose to enlist Moses to be His messenger. Moses responded though with much hesitation and self-doubt. The job was so big what if he failed with his part? How often do we have the same conversations with God?
