Tangled Words

Exodus 4-6

I’ve not always been the best with words when speaking in front of people, so I can relate to Moses when he says, ”…‘O Lord, I’m not very good with words. …I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.’” Exodus 4:10 NLT Great description!

And can’t you just see what must have been a bemused look on the Lord’s face when He answered Moses? “Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak…? I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.’“ Exodus‬ ‭4‬:‭11 NLT‬‬ That’s a nice way of being put in one’s place, isn’t it?

God outlines His all-encompassing, all-powerful nature in five short words. ”…I Am Who I Am.” (Yesterday’s reading in Exodus 3:14) He then instructs Moses what to tell the Israelites. “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I Am has sent me to you.’” That’s a comforting thought when we ponder who God really is. Whose life is He having you speak into today?
