Week 5 Day 3
why me we have probably asked that question often it is a question growing out of unfairness suffering fear people of every age have asked that question from Moses to modern day men and women
there are those events we go through that are painful challenging conflicting but when resolved completed reconciled there is celebration too
we are not without resources in the tasks to which the Lord calls us blessings given talents bestowed presence abidingmay the Lord help us to see beyond thewhy me because the present is not all there is the journey is not over the Lord still has something special in store for us
A RELUCTANT LEADERRecruiting Aaron, briefing the troops, confronting Pharaoh. Exodus 4 & 5
1Then Moses answered, "Suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, 'The Lord has not appeared to you.'" 2The Lord said, "What is in your hand?" He said, "A rod." 3And He said, "Cast it on the ground." He cast it down and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. 4The Lord said to Moses, "Reach out your hand and take it by the tail." He reached out and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand. 10Then Moses said, "O my Lord, I am not eloquent, but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue." 11So the Lord said to him, "Who has made man's mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say." 13But Moses said, "O my Lord, please send by the hand of whomever else you may send." 14So the anger of the Lord was kindled, and He said: "Is not Aaron the Levite your brother? I know that he can speak well. Look, he is coming out to meet you. 15You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth, and I will teach you what you shall do. 16He shall be your spokesman to the people. 17And you shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs. 29Moses and Aaron gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel. 30Aaron spoke all the words which the Lord had spoken to Moses. Then he did the signs in the sight of the people. 31The people believed; and when they heard that the Lord had visited the children of Israel and looked on their affliction, they bowed their heads and worshiped. 1Afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, "Thus says the Lord God of Israel: 'Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.'" 2Pharaoh said, "Who is the Lord, that I should obey His voice? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go." 6Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying, 7"You shall no longer give the people straw to make brick as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. 8You shall lay on them the quota of bricks which they made before. You shall not reduce it. For they are idle; therefore they cry out saying, 'Let us go and sacrifice to our God.' 9Let more work be laid on the men." This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
