I’ll Go..But Send Someone Else!

8 Sep

When The Lord told Moses that he would be used to set the children of Israel free, like some of us, Moses looked at himself and knew that he had  limited skills and abilities “Who am I – that I should go unto Pharaoh – and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt”. Moses continued, “Who shall I say sent me – they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice, – I am not eloquent… I am slow of speech and slow of tongue” (Exodus 4).

Of course Moses started out all wrong by focusing on self, as opposed to looking to The Lord, the omnipotent creator of heaven and earth. The fact that The Lord was giving the orders should have caused Moses to look to Him. How about you and me?

What has The Lord told us to do?  Well, one of his assignments for every believers is similiar to Moses’ assignment, go and tell (Mat. 28:18-20). Let’s start there!  As we, in obedience, go and tell others about the Lord’s goodness, mercy, and love, He will perform the miracles, He will cause the seeds that we plant to grow. Remember, the scriptures tell us that “one plants, one waters, but it’s God that gives the increase”(1 Corinthians 3:7-11).

Are you focusing upon your shortcomings and remaining silent?  Pray for opportunities, wisdom and for boldness to help along the way. The scriptures tell us that he who wins souls is wise, and the righteous are as bold as a lion (Proverbs 11:30, Proverbs 28:1).

You and I don’t have the full picture of all that the Lord wants us to do, but we can start with what we do know. Talk to someone about The Lord. Start  by talking with your family! The Lord Jesus has sent you as His ambassador (IICorinthians 5:20). Yes, there are other laborers in the field, but you your assignment has been specifically designed for you. Did I hear you say, I’ll go, Lord send me!

    That was very nice, and so very true. I hope you don’t mind a video link but your post made me think of this, one of my favorite songs.
