“During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. 24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25 God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.” (Exodus 2:23-25)
“Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” 11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” 12 He said, “But I will be with you, and this shall be the sign for you, that I have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”” (Exodus 3:10-12)
Do you struggle with what you know God has called you to do with your life? Maybe you relate to Moses, who couldn’t comprehend why God wanted to use him. Like Moses, God wants to inhabit the lives of imperfect believers like you and I. He does not need you to be the best writer, speaker, or performer. He does not need you to be the best at your job. God’s purposes for the earth reach far beyond our own lives. He desires that you take the hand He’s extended out to you, saying “yes” to the journey ahead. Consider today’s verses above. The people of Israel were groaning in their bondage. And God, in His goodness, did not forget the covenant He made with Abraham. Moses was the answer to a portion of the promise. God needed Him! He chose Him to complete the task of freeing the people of Egypt. You too, are needed in this generation. I want to encourage you: go where He is calling! You will not be alone, He will be with you. There is purpose in your destination.
