The Truth About You…My Lighthouse
God equips those He calls
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
1 – What does it mean to be equipped?
Do you remember Moses’ story? Read it here (Exodus 3:6-4:17) or watch the video again.
2 – Was Moses equipped for the job God had for him (leading the Israelites out of Egypt)? How do you know? (Hint: God is the potter)
3 – Did Moses trust that God had equipped him? How did Moses respond to God?
4 – How does God respond to Moses’ doubts and fears?
5 – Have you ever doubted yourself? Thought you weren’t strong enough, fast enough, smart enough, nice enough, or old enough to do something? What do you do when you have doubts?
I know that I have doubted myself many times. God wants us to remember Him and to focus on Him in those moments of doubts. He may talk to you, as He talked to Moses. Or, He might send someone else to talk to you. He might remind you of Moses’ story or of a specific verse. God reaches out to us in many different ways, so make sure you are always listening and watching for Him. Read the verse at the top of this page again. Isaiah 41:10
Trust that God is always with you. Trust that God has a plan for you. Trust that His plan is good. Trust that He has equipped you for the work ahead. And, go where He leads you.
Well, in the end, Moses decides to follow God. I don’t think his fears and doubts disappeared, I think he simply chose to act above them and to trust in God instead. He trusted God and God’s plan for him. He followed the path God set in front of him. Will you follow the path God sets in front of you?
Moses is seen as a great leader but, this isn’t perfectly accurate. Moses followed God, God was always the leader. Pray together as a family that God will always be the leader in your lives as well, and that you will trust in Him and follow Him always.
