Godís Mouthpiece

Godís Mouthpiece

Read: Exodus 4:1-12
Bible in a Year: Psalms 120-122; 1 Corinthians 9

Who gave human beings their mouths? . . . Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak. óExodus 4:11-12

My nerves fluttering, I waited for the phone to ring and the radio interview to start. I wondered what questions the host would ask and how I would respond. ďLord, Iím much better on paper,Ē I prayed. ďBut I suppose itís the same as MosesóI need to trust that you will give me the words to speak.Ē

Of course Iím not comparing myself with Moses, the leader of Godís people who helped them escape slavery in Egypt to life in the Promised Land. A reluctant leader, Moses needed the Lord to reassure him that the Israelites would listen to him. The Lord revealed several signs to him, such as turning his shepherdís staff into a snake (Ex. 4:3), but Moses hesitated to accept the mantle of leadership, saying he was slow of speech (v. 10). So God reminded him that He is the Lord and that He would help him speak. He would ďbe with his mouthĒ (as the original language translates, according to biblical scholars).

We know that since the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, Godís Spirit lives within His children and that however inadequate we may feel, He will enable us to carry out the assignments He gives to us. The Lord will ďbe with our mouths.Ē óAmy Boucher Pye

Lord Jesus, You dwell with me. May my words today build up someone for Your glory.
