God can and wants to make a difference through you – 29 August 2022

Bible text(s)

10But Moses said, “No, LORD, don't send me. I have never been a good speaker, and I haven't become one since you began to speak to me. I am a poor speaker, slow and hesitant.”

11The LORD said to him, “Who gives man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or dumb? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? It is I, the LORD. 12Now, go! I will help you to speak, and I will tell you what to say.”

Exodus 4:10-12GNBOpen in Bible reader

God already knows us from before our birth and has a purpose in life for each of us. He knows the qualities and potential that he has created in you, which may still be latent waiting on your obedience to be empowered, led and guided by his Spirit.

Maybe you’re not ready yet. But so he was able to call on Moses, Gideon, Isaiah, his disciples, Paul and others. Unexpectedly, and despite their shortcomings, he enabled them to work with him.

He, however, looks at your heart, discerns your attitude and waits for your surrender and continual obedience to him.

Ask God and allow him to make a difference in your spirit through his Spirit, with advice and deeper insight into his wisdom, power and love. When you obey God in it, he renews your mind and attitude and equips and empowers you for your work in order to bring forth godliness. As the above-mentioned could do alongside God, what they did not even dare to consider, so can you.

Then he creates transformation through you – re-formation (Jeremiah 18:1-6) – as it is meant to be.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for looking at me with foreknowledge and wanting to renew and equip me to serve with you in the world unto all blessing. Help me to do this and for your name to be glorified through it. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
