Many times in life, we are asked to do something and we try to get out of it. We make excuses. We drag our feet. We look for a way out. Like Moses, we say, “Send someone else.”
When it comes to something God wants us to do, let us remember that we were created to accomplish great things. He has called you to the place that you are at right now. He wants you to pour yourself out to the people in your path. He wants you to invest in that area. Then the time will come when He may direct you somewhere else, when you have fulfilled the work He had for you there. It is then when we humbly move forward, thanking Him for the journey and looking forward to what work He has next.
We make a lot of excuses instead of taking responsibility. We have a great kingdom work that God has placed before us. Take responsibility. Love the people around you. Serve the people around you. God has placed you there for a reason. Wherever you find yourself this morning, embrace it! Shine for Jesus.
“But Moses again pleaded, ‘Lord, please! Send anyone else.’” – Exodus 4:13 [NLT]
