Read Exodus 3:1-12
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(NKJ)
In this story, Moses didn’t want to convinced him that He would be with him.
Sometimes we have to do things that are hard. The whole thing feels like a set up and we believe we are in a no-win situation.
Not too long ago, I was in such a position. I had to confront a shop owner about defective merchandise. This was not the first time this had happened. I felt like a pest and I always want to show a Christian witness. That’s hard to do when you have to complain.
I did not want to go. The Lord said, "Go, and I will be with you."
A lot of prayer went up for my situation, my witness, the workers at the shop, and the business itself.
When the day came, God went before me and gave me favor with the person I needed to see. I was able to explain myself and healing of attitudes took place.
So when something feels like a set up, take it to God. He may be doing a special work in His Kingdom through you.
Prayer: O God, we ask you to step in when we wonder how we can accomplish your purposes. We thank you for your wisdom and love to work through us. Amen.
A wonderful example that when we take it to God first....and wait upon Him, things turn out so much richer than we could ever hope or imagine.ReplyDelete
