Moses made a new life for himself in Midian with a wife and child. However, that is not the end of the story. No, God was not through with him yet. Although he had committed murder, God still wanted to use him. No matter what we have done in the past, if we repent and look to God He can still use us.
God spoke to Moses through a burning bush a calling on his life. Moses could have refused or thought maybe the heat had gotten to him and he was hallucinating that a bush was talking to him. He was of course hesitant, asking God, who was he to go and fulfil such a humongous task; Pharaoh was not a force to be reckoned with. The second question Moses asked was, “What if they do not believe me…”
When God calls us, it is no small task. He has a destiny for each one of us. We often feel inadequate like Moses. Who am I God? I am nobody. How could I possibly do that? I don’t have that gifting? I don’t speak well. I can’t do this. I can’t do that. What will people think of me? I don’t have enough finances and the list goes on. But if you take the step of faith to be obedient to God’s calling, He will surprise you. He will equip you for the task ahead. Are you willing to say yes to God’s call on your life?
God answered, "I will be with you. And this is your sign that I am the one who has sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God at this very mountain."
may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.
