God Is Not Finished with You - July 20, 2022

“I am not a great man! How can I go to the king and lead the Israelites out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11 NCV).

Moses asked that question at age eighty, and I am so glad he did. Why eighty-year-old Moses? The Moses we saw in Egypt was brash and confident, but the Moses we find four decades later is reluctant and weather beaten. Benched at forty, suited up at eighty. What does he know now that he didn’t know then?

Well the ways of the desert, for one. Family dynamics for another. But more than the ways of the desert and the people, Moses needed to learn something about himself. Apparently, he has learned it. God says Moses is ready. And guess what? The voice from the bush is the voice that whispers to you. And it reminds you that God is not finished with you yet.
