Exodus 3:8, 11-12 ESV
And I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring then up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey….But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” He said, “But I will be with you”
As I was reading through my Leadership Bible, I read the verse above and thought about the trouble Moses had communicating his vision. God called Moses to lead His people out of Egypt, but Moses argued with God giving Him excuse after excuse as to why He should choose someone else to lead.
Here are some of the thoughts I had when I read this passage:
- Moses asked and I am sure you have also asked, “Who am I to do this?” God says to Moses and to you, “I will be with you.”
- Continuing down to verse 4:1, Moses asks God, “What if they don’t believe me or listen to me?”
- How many times have I told God, “I can’t do this.”?
- And God says, “I am going to be there with you.”
Remember that you’re not alone if you have the same feelings Moses did. Be brave, acknowledge the awkward, do the best you can. Even just saying, “Hi, it’s nice to meet you.”
Reading through this passage reminded me of a time not too long ago after I started my coaching business. Someone on my Operations team suggested that I call a person who had been telling others really good things about our company. I hesitated at first and asked a lot of the same questions Moses asked God.
