Stepping into Purpose

“Depend on the Lord in whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” (Proverbs 16:3)

Recently my daily Bible reading took me on a journey through Exodus and the story of Moses. Moses was born with a purpose: to lead his people out of Egypt into the land God had promised them. But Moses doubted himself, and he doubted God. He didn't feel like the right person for the job.

Sometimes we expect to know what our divine purpose is by feeling “totally right” about it. We think we should feel completely comfortable stepping into God’s will for our lives, having absolutely no doubts. We expect to feel totally qualified for the job God has set out for us.

So we sit and wait for a perfect opportunity to come along instead of relying on God for the strength and skills to do his will. 

Moses was supposed to speak to Pharaoh on God’s behalf, but he was convinced that he was a terrible speaker. God’s reply almost makes me laugh: “Who makes mouths? Who makes people so they can speak or not speak, hear or not hear, see or not see? Is it not I, the Lord?”

I love that God said “Who makes mouths?” We have to remember that God makes everything. If God is calling you to do something but you feel less than qualified, remember that he will give you whatever you need to carry out his purpose.  

Prayer: Lord thank you that You have a purpose for each of us. Help us to realize that purpose, and to not be hindered by fear or doubts. When we feel under qualified, help us to remember that You will give us what we need.

Suggested Reading: Exodus 2:11-4:12
