You know what happened next. God said, “Ok, fine. I’ll have Aaron your brother help you.”
But what if Moses would have said OK? He would have had the opportunity to watch God transform him from a person who saw himself as a bumbling idiot, into a magnificent orator. But instead he said, “please get someone else to do it.”
I wonder what kind of life Moses would have been able to have had he said OK. He already got to do some really cool things with the help of Aaron, and watched God do miracles outside of him, but he missed the miracle God wanted to do within him.
God calls us to do things not because He can’t find someone else to do it, but because He wants to do something IN US.
So next time, why not just say “OK” instead of asking God to send someone else. You never know what might happen!
