Equipped to Go…

Read: Exodus 1-3
Marked: Exodus 3:10-12, “Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” 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?” So He said, “I will certainly be with you. And this [shall be] a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”

Moses was commissioned to go to Egypt to bring the Word of God to Israel and to Pharaoh. But Moses was reluctant. He felt ill qualified for the task. But God promised to be with him.

This is similar to the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20 where believers are instructed to go and make disciples of all the nations, teaching them to observe all that God has commanded us. He promises that He will be with us when we go, even to the end of the age.

I might not feel equipped to go, but that means I am relying on my own abilities, my own strength, instead of in the Holy Spirit. I must put my trust in God, not my feelings, even as Moses had to put his trust in God, and do what I have been commanded.
