Then Moses turned again to the Lord and said, “O Lord, why have you mistreated this people? Why did you ever send me? Since I first came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has mistreated this people, and you have done nothing at all to deliver your people.” (Exodus 5:22-23)
In Exodus 5:22-23 Moses is asking the Lord why he sent him to speak to pharaoh if it is only getting his people in more trouble and why he has not rescued his people yet. When God creates us he has a specific purpose in mind, he knows exactly what you will grow up to do and become. Sometimes God calls us to do things we may not understand at first, they may be a bit uncertain or different from what we normally do but we trust that if God I calling us to do it then it will all work out for the better. Whether it’s writing the devotional for lent or speaking to God for Pharaoh when we are called to do something by God that may seem uncertain or difficult we follow it through because it is God's will for us. On my first mission trip I got really homesick the first night and I started to question whether or not I should be there but I soon realized God had called me to be there and help others and if I saw it through it would all work out.
Dear God, Remind us to seek you and question you even in our doubts. And grant us patience and peace when you cannot answer us. Amen.
