God Equips The Called

God Equips The Called

Exodus 4:10-12Moses said to the Lord, “O 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.”  The Lord said to him, “Who gave man his mouth? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you to speak and will teach you what to say.” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – It’s been said that God does not call the equipped, He equips the called.  If we felt we were up to the tasks that God calls us to do, perhaps we would be arrogant and too self-sufficient in carrying out the task.  And after the task was done, too proud in what we had accomplished.

My Advice – Do not be reluctant to follow the clear calling of God.  He will never call you to something that He is not prepared to equip you to carry out.  And once you have done it (even as you are doing it), give Him the credit and the praise.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
