I’m Just Not Believable

Still 'fine-tuning' our process. You can get to the original article HERE

In spite of God’s assurance, Moses has an exhaustive list of
excuses. The third expression of reluctance centres around his doubt that
people will believe him. What he needed to learn was that it was a partnership
with the God who performs signs and wonders. If Moses would take care of his
obedience, God would take care of the miracles.

 

 

Exodus 4:

Moses answered, “What
if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to
you’?”

Then
the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”

“A staff,” he replied.

The
Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.”

Moses threw it on the ground,
and it became a snake, and he ran from it. Then the Lord said
to him, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail.” So, Moses reached out
and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a staff in his hand. “This,”
said the Lord, “is so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their
fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared
to you.”

 

 

Like Moses we may put too much stock in human persuasiveness
and talent. When we do, we may be taking attention away from what God wants to
do to reveal Himself.

 

Then, when God does a miraculous sign, Moses runs away from
it. He is freaked out initially by God’s demonstration of power to transform.
