But Moses said to the Lord, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” Then the Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”
Exodus 4:10-12 ESV
Moses is one of history’s most noted leaders.
He led the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Then he served as a priestly leader.
He shared God’s will, prayed for them, and even plead their case before God (Exodus 32:11).
We need more leaders like him in the Church. But, is it possible they are already here, but have never gotten a chance to step up?
Moses was not a gifted speaker. He was reluctant to trust God when he told him he would lead the Israelites (Exodus 4).
If Moses were alive today, who would he look like in the church? Would he be the person sitting next to you who doesn’t appear to have a “leadership bone” in his body?
In fact, could it be you?
