Leading The Way – Week of June 22

Week of June 22

Send Someone Else

Imagine standing before the Lord and finding the strength within you to say what Moses said: “O Lord, please send someone else to do it” (Exodus 4:13).

Hard to imagine? Think you would never have the nerve to say these same words? We often do just that. We essentially tell God no by refusing to do what He has directed us to do.

Two verses earlier, Moses had admitted his weaknesses: “O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue” (Exodus 4:10).

There was no doubt that Moses had a problem with his self-esteem. However, he quickly decided it was in his best interest to obey the Lord. Although he had limitations and inabilities, he refused to allow these to prevent him from answering God’s call.

There are times when we look at others and think we could never do what they are doing. Although we long to step forward and lead, we often fall back with feelings of inferiority and defeat.

We also allow pride to skew our view of those around us. We see someone who is either physically or mentally challenged and wonder why God has chosen that person for a particular task. He often chooses to use the “foolish” things of this world to do a mighty work (1 Corinthians 1:27).

While Moses was a meek man, he certainly was not weak. He had a tremendous inner strength and discernment that was God-given. In the end, the Lord used his meek spirit to lead Israel out of bondage and to the doorstep of the Promised Land.

Have you made meekness a personal goal of your life? If you have, then you are in store for a tremendous blessing.

The meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace (Psalm 37:11).
