I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
In spite of being called from the burning bush, Moses still had qualms about becoming leader of his people, the Israelites. He’d had the training, the heritage, and then the anointing. But what is that to him or to us when fear and anxiety intrude?
Moses listened to God. The question was simple, “What’s in your hand?” Moses wasn’t asked to part the Red Sea as an opener. The first step of obedience was to allow God to use what Moses already possessed. And the rest is history.
We’re not being called to do the impossible. We’re simply being asked to respond to God’s calling by taking a small move in his direction. He will empower us to finish the task.
Father, move me from fear to faithfulness; from self-consciousness to God-consciousness; from timidity to audacity for your sake. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
