Moses: Free to Live

I am not Strong Enough

There are so many facets to Moses’ story, but what stood out for me is that he became a leader even though he believed he was not strong enough. Obviously, Moses was right: he was not strong enough. He did not have to be; God would make him strong. God does not call the equipped, but equips the called.

Just imagine in this picture – when the tree was still a sapling as small as the weeds growing next to it now – if you would have told the sapling “one day you will break open the pavement that’s surrounding you.” That would have seemed completely impossible. But if we do what’s possible, God will do the impossible! Through steady growth, the tree became strong enough to break through something that is much stronger (cement vs. wood and Pharaoh vs. Moses). The tree’s strength comes from its roots. The tree’s strength comes from its roots. Two weeks ago in the Abraham story, we saw that Abraham and his family became ‘rooted’ because they were called by God and given a unique identity as his people. Anchored in God, Paul uses the phrase, “in Christ,” we find the strength to live out God’s call for our lives. This may occur, even against overwhelming odds.

Where do you feel the need for God’s power and presence in your life today? Stop and pray for this grace right now.
