Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord.  I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant.  I am slow in speech and tongue.”– (Exodus 4:10 NIV)

It’s interesting to me that when God called Moses out of the burning bush, Moses said, “I can’t speak well!”  But in Deuteronomy we see Moses preaching, preaching, preaching.  For 34 verses, over the course of an entire month, all he does is preach!

What made the difference?  When Moses said, “I can’t speak,” God didn’t agree.  Instead God responded, “Who made your mouth?”

God will enable you to do the things He calls you to do.  When you say, “I can’t do it,” He doesn’t say, “That’s right.  You don’t have the talent for it.”  He says, “Who made you?”  God made you and God enables you to do anything He calls you to do.  If you don’t believe me, just read Hebrews 11 and you will see that He can do anything!

Next to Jesus, Moses was considered the most humble man that ever lived.  How could he stay so humble?  I think it’s because he saw the glory of the Lord.  If you remember, Moses said to God, “Show me your glory” (see Exodus 33:18).  And God said, “If you’ll stand in the cleft of the rock, I’ll put my hand over you and you’ll see my back side as I pass by.”  That was all Moses needed.  Moses saw enough of Him that he wanted greater glory.  He became hungry for the glory of the Lord.

If you saw Jesus like Moses saw Jesus, what would it make you?  It would make you humble!  When I see His goodness and how much He loves me, it humbles me, too.

Dear heavenly Father, You show us Your glory every time You enable us to do the thing You have called us to do.  We are humbled by the fact that there are no “I can’ts” in Your Book!
