From time immemorial, people have given God all kinds of excuses for not serving Him. The most common being that they don’t have what it takes. Moses said he couldn’t speak, Jeremiah thought he was too young. Esther thought she was only a house wife. While Peter felt he was an uneducated fisherman. God specifically asked Moses; “who made the lips that speak?” obviously the point was that God will not ask you to do something He has not equipped you to do. In the case of the apostle Paul, he could have felt that he had no ability to build the church he had been destroying for years. He felt that his past disqualified him. But Barnabas the encourager took him under his wings and showed him he had what it took.
I don’t know the excuse and inability you keep hiding behind. The grace of God is sufficient for you. The power of God is present to work through you and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit will be revealed in your life. Don’t underestimate the working of God in your life. As long as you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land. You will be surprised by the working of God in your life as you surrender to His will. Avail yourself as a vessel to do the purpose of God on earth today. Say yes to the will of God.
SCRIPTURE READING: EXODUS 4:10-12
But Moses pleaded with the Lord, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.” Then the Lord asked Moses, “Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, I know that Your grace is sufficient for me. I am willing and obedient to execute your purpose in this world. I avail myself as a vessel to do the purpose of God. Amen
