But Moses replied, “Please Lord, send someone else.” Exodus 4:13 BSB
Promises of Deliverance
When God approached Moses and commanded him to go to Pharoah for the deliverance of the enslaved Israelites. Moses made several excuses to which God responded by giving His exact instructions that required obedience and action on the part of Moses. (Read Exodus 3:9-4:16)
When the man at the Pool of Bethesda was asked by Jesus if he wanted to be healed. He did not say yes, the man complained about not being able to get into the pool. (Read John 5:1-7)
Have you promised to serve God by actively visiting the sick, feeding the homeless, attending weekly church services, including prayer or bible studies or keeping the seventh-day Sabbath? What about giving up worldly habits and keeping company with individuals who are not striving for eternal life?
Have you identified your talents and spiritual gifts to witness and spread the great news of God’s love and the plan of Salvation?
The life of a believer involves action; our lives are not our own, we must:
Stop making excuses!
Jesus is telling us to: “Rise, pick up your bed and walk!”
It is by faith and true obedience to God that we accept and put into action, God’s perfect plan for our lives.
Challenge for today: Make a plan to incorporate service to God in your daily life. You are the someone that others need to show them that God is love, and that He has promised Eternal life to all who are faithful and obedient to His commandments.
Prayer for today: Dear God, Please send me. I am ready to live by faith and obey your will for my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
