“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?’” (Exodus 3:11)

God had called Moses to deliver God’s people from slavery in the land of Egypt. 40 years earlier Moses had tried to deliver his brethren from Egyptian bondage according to Moses’ own plans (Acts 7:23-25).This did not work out. In fact Moses had been on the run for next 40 years as Pharaoh had sought his life (Exodus 2:15; Acts 7:30). At this point in his life, it didn’t make sense to Moses how God could use him for such a great task. Moses begins making excuses for how he cannot do the task which God has set before him (Exo. 4:1-13).

God can use us to accomplish great things to His glory (Matt. 5:13-16). Let us not make excuses. Let us not try to glorify God in our own way and by our own methods. Rather let us submit ourselves to God’s Will and let God work in our lives.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
