And God said, “I will be with you.”… (Exodus 3:12a NIV)
Exodus 3 is the story of how Moses met God at the burning bush. God has a mission trip planned for Moses. Moses was reluctant. He made up excuses on why he was not a good fit. He was afraid. God said I will go with you. Have you been commissioned to do something that is outside of your box, outside of your abilities? Don’t be afraid, God will be with you. Have you been asked to do something that you have never done before? Don’t be afraid, God does not choose the qualified. He qualifies the chosen. He provides on the job training. You will receive the gifts you need as you step forward. Sometimes it is through a mentor helping you. Sometimes it will require studying and learning as you go. Sometimes it is just stepping out in faith. As you take step after step the knowledge/skills will be given as you need them. It may be a rocky. Mistakes will be made. You will learn by your mistakes. Remember, God will be with you.
