‘Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.’ (Ex 4:12).
If anybody was ever terrified, uncertain and reluctant regarding the enormous assignment ahead of him, it was Moses! He was very conscious of his lack of eloquence, confidence and competence for the mission God was giving him out of the blue. He had a pretty good picture of the enormity of the task ahead of him. He did his utmost to convince Yahweh how unqualified he was for the divine mission. I can relate with this prophet’s trepidation. So can you, I’m sure. I have no illusions about my own ability to flow in the Spirit, represent God’s will in a decadent world and lead spiritual slaves out of bondage into the Promised Land. Our confidence is in the One who designed the mouth and invented speech. Our trust is in the One who knows the stakes against us, the way in the wilderness and the great opportunities ahead. Let Him teach you what to say in prayer, worship, counsel, business and ministry.
