Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say. Exodus 4:12

Moses thought he was the wrong man for the job. Why should a pharaoh listen to a man who had spent the last forty years tending sheep?

However, God reminded Moses of his true identity: “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes him dumb or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?” (Exodus 4:11 NASB). In other words, God put Moses’ attention and focus back on Him.

You can understand your identity and the unique works that God has planned for you only when you identify yourself fully with Jesus Christ. You are an eternal part of God’s family. Insecurity, emptiness, and purposelessness have no place in your life—the Lord provides fulfillment and direction.

Do you feel inadequate or unprepared for a specific challenge? Is the threat of failure eroding your faith? Remember that God is sovereign and gives you the strength and wisdom for what He asks you to do. He calls you to step out in obedient faith, letting Him handle the details.
