“Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”

Exodus 4:13

Moses was a certainly a very reluctant hero! He raised several reasons why he was unsuitable, to each of which God provided a solution. With no excuses left, Moses resorted to asking the Lord to find an alternative! Ahab received an equally unequivocal reply when he asked the Lord who would begin the battle. ‘You’ was the answer. (1 Kin.20:14) Is there a danger that we can be like that at times? We need to accept that there may be occasions when it is us, personally, that the Lord has chosen for a particular task. What an honour! Let’s be sure we say YES!
