Exodus 4:10-13

God Will Use You in Your Own Weakness

Transcript

Exodus 4:10-13 then Moses said to the LORD please, Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue the LORD said to him who has made man’s mouth or who makes him mute or deaf or seeing or blind is it not I, the LORD now then go, and I, even I will be with your mouth and teach you what you are to say but he said, please, Lord now send the message by whomever You will Shabbat Shalom we see here Moses arguing with God he didn’t want to go back to Egypt he didn’t want to be the deliverer of Egypt he didn’t want to have to go and speak to Pharaoh he didn’t want to do what God was calling him to do that’s very interesting because Moses spent the first 40 years of his life in Egypt trying to be somebody trying to exult himself trying to be in Pharaoh’s court trying to be a somebody and then he got kicked out of Egypt threatened with his life he spent the next 40 years of his life being a nobody in the desert so Moses spent the first 40 years of his life trying to be a somebody in his own ability he spent the next 40 years in the desert being a nobody and he spent the third 40 years of his life finding out what God could do with somebody who had been willing to become a nobody do you know God uses nobodys to accomplish his purpose and he used Moses who was a nobody at that time a guy in exile in the desert to become the deliverer of Israel God wants to use you in the area of your greatest weakness when you’re not seeking your own glory God will use us in weak areas here’s a very funny thing I met the LORD when I was 19 years old I was baptized in the Canon river in Northfield Minnesota when I came up out of the water there was a young guy there who prophesied over me and he said one day you will have a ministry to the weak and the hurting and a ministry to the downtroden to raise them up and impart blessing to those who have been cursed do you know I laughed at him because I thought boy, you sure missed that you don’t know me at all because at 19 years old I had absolutely no use for the weak, the sick, the infirmed get them out of the way so we can accomplish something and my focus was on accomplishment my focus was on the vision the goal and move the people out of the way that have problems and are sick or are weak, or can’t handle it and this guy says that I’m going to have a ministry to minister to people that have been wounded that have been cursed I thought boy did you miss it you know what God changed my life and used that area that was a weakness to me and I didn’t see that ministry begin to manifest until probably 12 -14 years later you know what happened I got married and when I got married I found out there’s a need to be compassionate to other people when you try to live with somebody you don’t get to be selfish I didn’t realize how selfish I was until I got married and God began to teach me through Jan compassion for other people to love other people to bless other people not to just move people out of the way to accomplish visions and purposes and that sort of thing and it took God 10 -12 years to work that out in my life and then that prophetic word began to manifest now I have great compassion for people I love people I love to minister to people that are hurt that are wounded that have been devastated and watch miracles happen watch God heal them but that was not a natural ability for me that was not something that I was naturally gifted at, at all that was an anointing and a grace of God that came upon me now we have a ministry Family Foundations International 53 different nations and a lot of what we do not exclusively but a lot of what we do is minister to people that have been wounded and cursed and devastated so that prophetic word turned out to be right what do we see here God will use us in the area of our weakness if we let God circumcise our hearts and God will use you the the very areas of weakness so what are the areas of weakness that God might be calling you to allow him to change you in what are the areas that God is strengthening what are the areas that God is changing in your life in what areas are you still striving in your own ability like Moses did in the first 40 years of his life and then in what areas have you just given up that God is calling you to like Moses he didn’t want to go and do what God had called him to do God was going to use him in his weakness God was going to show Himself strong through a man who was weak in that particular area so what area is like that for you I pray that God will expose that to you that will show that to you and I just pray for you today Father I pray for every person watching today that you’d expose those areas where we’re still striving in the flesh expose those areas Father where we’ve given up and we’re not willing to allow you to use us and Father I pray that you would use us in the very areas of our weakness to minister to and bless other people Father use us powerfully today and during this whole week in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
