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

It seems that Moses was shy and self-conscious. He had a
difficult time communicating with people and defaulted to doing things himself
instead of inviting others to be part of his team. We see this later when he is
trying to be the only one to settle disputes in Israel. It would be his
father-in-law that gives him insight to create a team of listeners to settle
matters.

 

 

Exodus 4:

10 Moses
said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent,
neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of
speech and tongue.”

11 The
Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or
mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now
go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”

 

 

What if my friend Ken had decided that his communication
struggles excluded him from God’s call? Instead of rebuttal and dismissing the
call, Ken received the call and prepared his heart to learn new things.

 

Moses did not believe that he could be eloquent or
quick-witted in responding to the Pharaoh. One more reluctant excuse to the God
who asks.
