I would just like to share one of my devotions.
Read Exodus 3-5
But Moses said to God “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt” – Exodus 3:11
Rhema: This is one of the great stories on the bible of how God used Moses to save the Israelites from the slavery of Egypt.
There will always come a time when we question our capabilities, if we can do this or not. “Can I really do this?” I think I’m not the best” “I’m just an average person” “I’m too old or I’m too young” – those are just part of excuses when face with challenges or trials. Those things paralyze us from doing greater things. But the Lord assured us, “I call you for a greater purpose.” Everything that happens on our life was part His great plan on our lives.
Reflection: “O Lord I have never been eloquent neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant I am slow of speech and tongue – Exodus 4:10
Sometimes God is calling us but because of our numerous excuses, we refused to His calling. I used to be like this. I used my excuses to paralyze my system. But then I realized that I won’t grow if I’ll let these excuses eat my system. I begin to realize that God created me to become the best on His eyes. So I know that there’s no room for excuses ‘coz God has greater plan on my life.
Motivation: “Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say” – Exodus 4:12 “I will be with you” Exodus 3:12
God always assures us that He’s at our side. That He won’t leave us nor forsake us. When venturing new thing, I used to have a lot of fears. But when I had a change of perspective on everything, I begin to realize that God is with me as long as I glorify and acknowledge Him in everything that I do.
Application: We are more than conquerors. It’s time to turn our weaknesses into strength. Stop making excuses because we’re all born for this!
