Are you a Moses?

Are you a Moses?

Today I want to give you some thoughts to bring to God. I encourage you to spend some time in prayer. God will provide you with the answers. Take one question. Spend all the time necessary to figure it out. 

Think about these questions this way: Have you prayed about it more than you have talked about it? 

My life radically changed through this process, and I hope that it will do the same for you! 

There are many questions here, and I guess you know many of the answers already.

Here we go.  Let’s talk about Moses at the burning bush.  We have all heard the story.  If you’re not familiar, I will encourage you to return to Exodus 3 and refresh your memory of the story. 

Exodus 3:11-12 says, “But Moses said to God, Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt? And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”

What does Moses do? He immediately goes into questioning why he was chosen to go to Pharaoh!! Whenever we are called to a higher purpose, we have to process whether we are qualified to do the job.  The reality is, nobody in the Bible was all that qualified except Jesus. 

We all have our flaws. 

Moses had a stuttering problem. Noah was a drunk, Abraham was too old, Jeremiah was too young.


Let's talk about the women! Naomi was a widow, Sarah was too old, Rahab was a prostitute. We have all fallen short. We have IDENTITY Issues here!!!  

Throughout this story of Moses talking with God, he has five significant excuses for why he should not be the chosen one.  

Excuse # 1 - Who am I? - He was insecure. 

Moses struggled with his identity.  He just didn’t feel qualified; he thought God had picked the wrong leader.

What was God’s response? It doesn’t matter who you are. I am with you. 

Jesus picked Peter, the fisherman who kept messing up. 

He picked Paul, who persecuted Christians.

I’m here to remind you your identity is in Christ, which qualifies you. 

Sometimes I don’t know what to do or say, but He picked you because you are His child.

Excuse # 2 - Who Are You? Moses felt a lack of intimacy. 

Moses felt he didn’t know God well enough to describe Him to the people and lacked convictions concerning his relationship with God.  

What was God’s Response?  I AM WHO I AM.  I AM ever-present. I AM everything you need.

Your identity is in Christ, and that is what qualifies you. 

We have to stand firm in our faith. We have to stand up and lead and get out there and do what we can as quickly as we can to save as many lives as we can in the short amount of time on earth that we have. 

Excuse # 3 - What if they don’t listen? Moses felt intimidated.  

He worried about the people’s reaction to him. 

What was God’s response? When I’m finished, they’ll listen.

God wasn’t worried if everybody listened to Moses right then and there. 

He was in for the long haul. If everybody liked him, he probably wasn’t doing it exactly right.

Not everybody is going to listen, no matter how talented you are. You keep going anyway!! 

I have found myself thinking, “What will others think? Why would they listen to me based on my past?”  

God leaves what happened in the past, in the past!  And we should too.  

Sometimes we get stuck in the past and stay there!  Those experiences were just supposed to build your character to move on and give you strength.

Even though we have problems, He sees beyond it.  He wants you to find your identity in Him and Him alone. 

I am thankful today that even though I have problems and even though I have issues, I am still a candidate today! So you can rest in knowing this for yourself as well.  

Excuse #4 - I’ve never been a good speaker.  Moses worried about his inadequacies.  

Who would listen to him if he couldn’t even speak well?  

What was God’s response?  Guess who made your mouth. 

It’s always too early to quit. It’s never too late to start.  If you don't quit, you win! So let go of your history. He's got a great future for you!! 

You will never reach your full potential by quitting when things get complicated.

Excuse #5 - I know you can find someone else.  Moses felt inferior. 

He compared himself to others, even his brother Aaron, and decided that he came up short. 

What was God’s response?  OK, I will let Aaron go with you… but I’m still calling you to go.  

HE picked you, too!!!  You are a wonderful, beautiful child of God!  Your true self-worth is based only on what God says about you, not on how you feel about yourself.

Ephesians 2:10 says, “We are God’s masterpiece.  He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

There are so many truths about us: 

You are


...forgiven. creation.




...created for a purpose.


We are living victoriously!!! Because our identity is in Him. 

Remember whose you are!! 

Moses listed off his excuses to God on why he wasn’t good enough to represent God to Pharaoh, and God, yes God himself, told Moses exactly why he was exactly the man God could use.  

You are exactly the woman God wants to use to live out His desire for your life.  There is no one else out there that has been given the assignment you have.  Are you willing to pick up that assignment that has come straight from God and identity with Him?

 Remember, THE I AM precedes you in everything you do.  You are a child of God, and nobody can ever, forever and ever, nobody can ever take that identity away from you.  

So often, I ask, Why have you chosen me to do this, Lord?  

This Worthy factor sets in.  

Have you ever felt this way before?

Who am I to do this? Why did you pick me? 

Who am I do to this Lord?  

Why didn’t you pick someone else more qualified? 

When I get deep into these thoughts, God says to me, “Because I chose you!!!”

I believe so many of us have these fears of inadequacy.  

God has created us in His image though! 

To be in His likeness with His power to live out what He has called us to.  

We as women fear - can we do this?  Are you sure, Lord, you want ME to be doing THIS?  

The question is, “Why not you?”

He knew His plan for me before I ever did.  

When I start debating with God, asking Him if I am supposed to be moving forward,  

He is screaming to me, “YES! Yes, Baby Girl, So get up and go do it!!” 

This is not just for me, my friends, because this is for every one of us!  

As we let God’s light shine from within us, we can encourage others to do the same! 

I have to forget the fear and live into His calling for me!
