I was contemplating more examples from the scriptures of those who felt like they did not "know enough" for what the Lord wanted them to do. I thought of Moses.
When the Lord came to him in the burning bush, his response?
"Who am I that I should go unto the Pharaoh, and that i should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?" I find it interesting that Moses was called then prepared for this great assignment. I don't think that is always the case, but he is showing us that if we feel it is our case- if we feel that the Lord is asking something of us that are not prepared for, or don't know enough about- we are in good company.
The Lord's response? "Certainly I will be with thee..." Have a little faith, you think I was going to ask this of you and then leave you all alone? Come on-
But still- Moses questions-
"They will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice; for they will say, The Lord hath not appeared unto thee."
The Lord responds with a couple impressive miracles- "sure they'll believe you- didn't I just tell you that I would be with you?"
Moses' response: "I am not eloquent, I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue."
Let's not be hard of Moses here- but rather look at our own lives- are we ever like this? We have a prompting from the Lord that we should do something, and yet we doubt, we question our knowledge, our ability... No- we might not have the knowledge, or ability- but if we have the Lord, we have what we need.
The Lord responds to Moses, " Who hath made man's mouth? Now therefore, go, and I will be with thy mouth."
So- why was Moses chosen for such a job? Perhaps there is a little clue in Numbers 12:3 "Now Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth."
The Lord can work through us according to our meekness, our humility.
