28 Jul Exodus 3:9-12

Now, behold, the cry of the sons of Israel has come to Me; furthermore, I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians are oppressing them.

10 Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt.” 11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?” 12 And He said, “Certainly I will be with you, and this shall be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God at this mountain.”

We see how God is moved by the Israelites’ prayers, their longing for Him, and their forgiveness due to repentance and faith. God’s plan was to save them from slavery in order to worship and witness. His plan is the same for Christians today. Moses questioned himself and his ability to do what God asked because he doubted his abilities. We tend to doubt ourselves, too, but we must realize God doesn’t pick us for our abilities. He uses the unequipped and unprepared to show His power and bring glory to Himself.
