Have you ever struggled with not knowing if you are good enough?
Well you are.
You are good enough for God’s plan, good enough for His mission for you. You are good enough for making good. God will see to that. God will give you tools, words, signs, and comfort that He is in charge. If you wonder, just ask God – there is no more authoritative answer about you than from Him.
Do we doubt? Oh yeah. God will use that too. God chose and gave Moses signs to back up the claim that God was speaking to His people thru Moses (a staff that turned into a snake and back, a transformation of his hand to leprous and back, water from the Nile river to pour out like blood). The signs were not tricks and all involved living components of which God only could give life to. Moses spoke to God and God spoke of His power and direction. God told this to Moses for showing compassion for His people oppressed by Pharaoh in Egypt. God saw what had happened and knew what would happen. God knows what will happen now too, in our lives. Despite all these, Moses said I’m not good enough to speak. Moses was chosen anyway and God made a way for His Way to be known, using his brother Aaron to help.
Are we bold enough to speak up for ourselves (let alone speak up for what we have seen God do)???. Are we taking the time to pray and listen, as we ought to? How can we speak from His Word if we don’t listen first. And if we don’t speak, our silence speaks too. And how often does God show His power despite our timidness? All the time. God will NOT be stopped.
We are good enough, because God is with us. Who is good enough? God says He is – He is the “I AM”. God says Go! Go. God says Know! Know.
God will be the “I AM” with you today. Believe Him, not me. or believe me because of Him. GO and KNOW.
Reading in Exodus 4:https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus%204&version=NIV;KJV
10 Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, 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.”11 The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”13 But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”14 Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you. 15 You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. 16 He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. 17 But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.”—-Previous scripture from exodus 3https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+3&version=NIV;KJV
And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”
13 Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”
14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”
15 God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’
This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation…….”
