I Have Never Been

We so often focus on our own strength—what we can do on our own. In Exodus 4, Moses pleaded with God because he wasn’t “very good with words.” He told the Lord, “I never have been” (NIV). Those four words touch home. I could say I have never been one with good penmanship. I have never been one who could do math in my head. I have never been….

A few verses later, Moses gets a promise from God—a promise that we all receive. God says,” I will be with you” (NLT) or “I will help you” (NIV). We aren’t alone. We are not supposed to consider things with our own strength in mind. We were never meant to do life alone.

So God has left us this promise. He is with us. He will not forsake us. He will help us. He will strengthen us. He will uphold us. He will provide for us. Therefore, do not focus on the “I never have beens” in your life—focus on Him. Focus on what you can do through Him. Remember, you are not in this alone.

“But Moses pleaded with the LORD, ‘O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.’” – Exodus 4:10 [NLT]
