Exodus 4-6, Matthew 6:1-18
6But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

God told Moses that Pharaoh would refuse his request, but commanded him to make it anyways. Considering this passage against God’s sovereignty in Romans 9, even cowardly Moses obeyed the Lord and did not question His sovereign will and command with fatalism.
I found the part about prayer in Matthew very powerful, and it really caused me to reflect on my own heart. It is easy for me to use social media to post pictures of my Bible Journaling and seek praise from other people for my work. While it is good to share these things with others, I think it is important that I am seeking God’s love not love from followers on social media.
I’ve found myself reflecting on the same thing! Such a good eye opener to my intentions.
Moses felt unworthy to complete God’s mission. I think many of us feel like there is someone “better” to do the job, so we neglect God’s plan for us. However, it’s important to realize that with God you can do anything. He doesn’t want to use perfect people. He wants to show his love by using sinners like us!
The Lord’s Prayer ❤️
Moses, like us, focused on the one thing he couldn’t do – speak. How often do I do the same instead of focusing on God’s power?
yes yes yes
Reading in Exodus has helped me to see that God can work through anyone. Moses was supposed to be killed at birth, he killed someone causing him to flee Egypt, and then he doubted his own ability to be used by God because he was not eloquent with his words. But God still used him to free his people and bring glory to God. None of us are so forgotten that we can’t be used to glorify God and bring about His will.
