Spiritual Warfare: 'Excuses Are Often Lies'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, April 11, 2024

But Moses said to the Lord, "Please, Lord, I have never been a skilled speaker. Even now, after talking to you, I cannot speak well. I speak slowly and can't find the best words."
Moses was taught all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he was powerful in both speech and action.
— Exodus 4:10 NCV & Acts 7:22 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, You picked Moses to do something he didn't really want to do, and he claimed to be an unskilled speaker. But Acts 7:22 reveals that Moses was a powerful speaker, so now we know that was a lie. Forgive me, Lord, when I try to lie to You and reject a task that You have put on me. Grant me the courage to move forward even though I think I'm not qualified. Help me to accept every job You assign, and realize that You will provide "on the job training." In Jesus' Name, Amen.
