Message for August 7, 2022 from Pastor Shirley

When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, ‘Moses! Moses!’ And Moses said, ‘Here I am.” Exodus 3:4                                
Yes Moses believed God spoke to him through the burning bush.  What Moses did not believe was in his ability to do what God asked.  
God called Moses to lead his people from a life of oppression, but Moses made excuses for why he couldn’t. And Moses said to the Lord, O Lord, I am not eloquent or a man of words, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and have a heavy and awkward tongue. Exodus 10:10      
There are times when we ask “Why me, Lord?” There are a lot of people who could do better at speaking than me. I am just not the right fit for the task. We all need encouragement at one time or another.  Maybe  not because we lack courage but reassurance that we can. 
The One who has called us to the task is faithful.  Our faithful God is there to remind us that He will be with us.  He will continue to guide and protect us.  He will  work all things together to fulfill His purpose.       
And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”  Deuteronomy 31:8
Like Easther God may be calling you for such a time as this! He is waiting for your yes. As Mary said, “Lord be it unto me according to your Word.”
