Day 51: I trust You, Lord. Laying my insecurities down for greatness. Exodus 3, 4
Some days ago, day 31, the topic was knowing who you are, but have you learned who you really are? You see, your family, peers, and surroundings have dictated who you are your entire life. You are so far from who you are supposed to be, you've become unrecognizable.
Satan places insecurities on you to keep you in your own personal prison. Why call it a prison? Because you are locked in the fear of uncertainty. If you really knew who you were, you'd start that business. You'd speak up in the meeting. You'd approached that young lady. You'd start school. What else have you not tried because you've been imprisoned?
God first began to speak to Moses about his task in Exodus 3. Moses first response was an insecure one:
And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? Exodus 3:11 KJV
How many times has God called you to do something and your response is 'Who am I, Lord?" I'll tell you who you are. You are the one called by the Most High to do something. What an honor that is to be assigned to a special task! And God will be with you if He has assigned you. That should be enough to remove your insecurities, but it isn't is it? Just like it wasn't for Moses.
After being told that God is with him, Moses still doubts that he is worthy to be called. He had signs to prove it, but still Moses tried to get out of it.
And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. Exodus 4:10 KJV
This angered God. How dare Moses question His choice? He made Moses' mouth and tongue. He promised Moses that he'd give him the words to speak and Moses still wanted to back out.
And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send. Exodus 4:13 KJV
In other words, "Um, God, can you send someone else please?!" He couldn't get pass his insecurities. You can just see God rolling his eyes when He decided to send Aaron, Moses' brother, with him.
And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart. And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do. And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God. Exodus 4:14-16 KJV
He almost missed out! What if God had decided to take Moses up on his request to send someone else? Moses would've missed out. But instead, probably in pity and to help Moses overcome his insecurities, He sent Aaron with him.
The point of all of this is don't allow your insecurities to cause you to miss out on your destiny. You have been predestined for greatness. Can you believe it? No! Shoo insecurity. Go away! Now…can you believe there is greatness in you?
Each day, you have to get pass the feelings that tell you, you aren't worthy. You are worthy! Jesus died on the cross for you because He saw your worth. Wake up and see yourself for how He sees you! You are worth it and more!!!
Start today! Change your mind about you. You have been chosen! Accept the assignment and the gifts that come with you. You have a special task before you. Go do it!!! Get to it!!!! Lay your insecurities at the foot of the cross! He made you. Every corner of you is filled with awesomeness. Now go be awesome!!!!
Ready to go forward,
