that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?’”
(Exodus 3:11 NIV)
“Not me, Lord! Surely someone else is better suited.” Have you ever uttered those words? If so, you’re in good company.
Moses was rescued from certain death, adopted as a son in Egypt’s royal family, and called by God to lead His people out of slavery. He had a lot on his plate, including a silver spoon. When Moses tried to fulfill God’s calling his own way, murderous actions forced a desert escape. Forty years later, Moses, well past his prime, was again called by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. “I’m not qualified! I’m a failure,” he argued.
