Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Moses had to learn the same lesson most of us have to learn: folks really don't care that much about what we say. If the truth is known, most of us can't express ourselves all that well. Communication with others is hard. However, when we offer ourselves to the Lord, he truly works through us and uses us in mighty ways. Ol' Stammerin' Moses is a great testimony that God can take a shepherd with his faltering speech and turn him into one of the greatest leaders and speakers of all time. Don't you think we had better ask what God wants to do with us and get to doing it? God used Moses mightily despite his limitations, and I believe God wants to use us in powerful ways, too!

My Prayer...

Loving Father, please use me in your service. I recognize that all my gifts, abilities, and experiences came from you. All my capabilities were given to me so I can bring you praise and lead others to you. So please enable me to use my abilities for your glory and empower me to do more than I could ever imagine possible for you! In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
