The gentle prodding.
I’ve felt it before.
A nudge inside my heart.
An unspoken request tugging,
Too often I find my response to follow Moses:
“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I…'” Exodus 3:11a NKJ
“…and they say to me ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?”
Exodus 3:13c NKJ
“Then Moses said, ‘But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, ‘The LORD has not appeared to you. ‘” Exodus 4:1 NKJ
“Then Moses said to the LORD, ‘O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; …” Exodus 4:10a NKJ
Too often my heart braces against the pull, argues against the call, worries against the future.
And yet it is there none the less.
My Lord has placed something on my heart He wants done and I want to be a willing joyful servant.
I’ll be honest.
I know the wonderful people around me would be surprised at my fear.
I know God has already prepared the path.
I also know for me to obey means sacrifice.
But I was just testifying to a younger woman yesterday of the blessings of obedience.
I was stating my willingness to follow Christ no matter the cost.
And I really meant it.
So as I answer the call and silence my fears, I hold fast to the knowledge of what God has given.
I recall His great goodness.
I trust Him.
