Moses knew he was the deliverer from the beginning, but he tried to do it in his own strength. He had not been discipled by God yet. He had the vision, but God had the plan. God had to train him first; so, He sent him to feed sheep. After forty years of feeding sheep in the wilderness God called him. But instead of feeling ready, as he did at the first, he said, “Who am I, that I should go…?” (Exodus 3:11). He had to get to the place where he would not go in his own strength; but instead, would go in God’s strength. Have you had a vision and you thought you knew what God wanted you to do, only to find yourself in the wilderness feeding sheep? When you are thoroughly discouraged, that is when God calls. When you feel totally inadequate to accomplish your vision, God says, “Go!” It is then, and only then, you are ready to go forth in God’s strength and not your own.
Thought for Today: “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14).
