Jan 18 – Believe

“This,” said the LORD, “is so that they [you] may believe that the LORD,…”

God promised His people delivery; He did not say it would be easy.

God appointed Moses and gave Him the tools he needed; he did not say it would be easy.

God spoke clearly in His messages about the pending freedom; the people did not listen as they were tired and discouraged – God did not say it would be easy.

Moses had doubts  Moshe replied,
“But I’m certain they won’t believe me,
and they won’t listen to what I say, because they’ll say,
‘ADONAI did not appear to you.”  Exodus 4:1 (The Complete Jewish Bible).

Moses does not believe he has what it will take to do what he’s told to do but Moses said, and begs to be relieved from such a heavy responsibility.  Because he forgets who can do all things.

“O Lord, please send someone else to do it.”   –Exodus 4:11-13

God sends him anyway, with a helper, his brother Aaron.  He was saved at birth for this.  He was saved as an infant for this.  He was saved as a man for this.

Why do you believe in God?  What has He said to you?  What has He promised you?  What has He asked of you?  How did you answer Him?  Have you answered Him?

Just as there is an answer from God for every prayer we speak or think or feel (yes, no, or not yet), there is an answer from you to God every time He speaks; and it’s yes, no, or not yet.

When our answer is anything but yes, why is that?  Fear, doubt, lack of confidence?  Sound familiar?

Just as God knew what He was doing when he called Moses, He knows what he’s doing when he calls us.  Just as God prepared Moses (and Aaron) for what they were called to do, He prepares us. Just as God met the needs of Moses and Aaron for this great task, He provides for us.  So again, we need to ask, ‘When our answer is anything but yes, why is that?’

Father, forgive me.  Too many times you call and I say no, not yet or someone else will take care of it.  Too many times I say I can’t, forgetting that if you called me then I can because you will provide.  I just need to believe.  Lord, Father, Adonai — I believe in You.

After a time of rest, it's time to resurrect this blog with a light on prayer and building our own personal prayer garden. A woman of faith, I want to share my personal insights into God and the Gospel in the hopes that these touch another heart, encouraging them to come to Christ.
