Re: Verse reading–Exodus 3:1-14; 4:1-15 (day five)
God agrees with Moses’ self-assessment of his skills, abilities, and limitations. If fact, God twice points to His own history of using flawed imperfect people to accomplish His purpose. (3:6 & 4:5- “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.”) We are likely to see these men as “Hall of Faith” members, in awe of their reputation and legacy. The truth is, they each had significant issues, drama, dysfunction, and baggage. The stories of their lives could fill several soap opera time slots for years. Yet, He describes them in relation to Himself. “The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”. God always sees the opportunities and potential of a flawed person with a genuinely humble heart and life that will trust Him. He will disagree and challenge excuses and lack of trust in His strength and power.
