Exodus 4:10 (GNT) Moses said to the LORD, ‘O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.
One of the greatest affronts you can commit against God is to refuse His calling that He has placed upon you. Imagine arguing with your Creator and telling him you know better than Him.
That is exactly what we read Moses did when God called him to be his spokesperson to Pharaoh. God and Moses got into an “I know best” competition. “The LORD said to him, ‘Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.’ But Moses said, ‘O Lord, please send someone else to do it.'”
God actually relented in the argument. Can you imagine that? But the Lord was not happy about it. “Then the LORD’s anger burned against Moses and he said, ‘What about your brother, Aaron the Levite?'” God has to use Aaron as Moses’ mouthpiece.
Point to ponder- When God places His anointing on you He uses whatever level of skill you have to fulfill His purposes in your life. This is why you need not fear moving into an unfamiliar area if the Lord calls you there.
