But Moses said to the Lord, “O my Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor even now that you have spoken to your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” Then the Lord said to him, “Who gives speech to mortals? Who makes them mute or deaf, seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you are to speak.” But he said, “O my Lord, please send someone else.” (Exodus 4:10-13)
Sometimes in life we are faced with challenges that we should try and accomplish. Many times we think that they are almost impossible giving us reluctance to try and complete them. In Moses’ case, Moses believes that he does not possess the proper skill to teach others. Moses is very reluctant to try and complete a challenge even with God’s help. At least for me, this verse is trying to show that with God’s help anything is possible in life but at this point in the Bible Moses is unable to realize this. I think that we must learn to be able to trust God in these situations and try and eliminate are reluctance. This comes with having faith in God. Once we are able to develop our faith more, then we will be able to accept the challenges that God places in our lives and conquer them with his help.
Dear God, please help us to open our minds and to always have faith in You. Please help us to trust You in all our situations in life and to know that through you anything is possible.
In Your amazing name we pray, Amen.
