“But Moses said, ‘Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.’” (Exodus 4:13, NIV)

If we react to a divine invitation as Moses did (delaying, deferring and demurring), we are telling God that we know better than He what is needed for the job at hand.

We could argue that Moses was the best choice: He knew both the ways of the wilderness and the ways of the Pharoahs.  We could argue that Moses was not the best choice: He lacked confidence and could be thin-skinned in the face of criticism. No matter.

What does matter is that when God invites you and me to come-along side in partnership, He has selected the best woman or the best man for the job! This does not mean that we are perfect. It does mean that if we are obedient, we will be perfectly aligned with the plan and the purposes of our Creator. That is an invitation we should always accept.  – Luther
