You know, restoration and recovery are amazing words. We may declare them with mental assent, but there’s such depth beneath the surface. God’s ability to bring us back from ruin and ashes… His method of healing us to where weakness becomes memory is nothing short of supernatural.
The man who said, “Behold, I am going…and I will say” grew up divided. His issue was class identity; he battled with a rich environment and a poor heritage, naturally. But in spirit his environment was wicked and his heritage was righteous.
He murdered a man in a confused expression of loyalty.
He covered his sin and fled.
He sat disillusioned and without purpose.
Then Got got his attention with a burning bush…and he met God.
He had a speech handicap.
He felt inadequate, and unable to do what God called him to do.
But after he encountered God he made no excuse. He changed his talk from predicted failure to possibilities.
And He told God, “Behold, I will go…and I will say.”
POWERFUL. Moses did this — with extreme emotional issues and in a crisis of belief.
We can do it too! We can get over ourselves and get concerned about the divine task.
We can trust God to strengthen us as we go, empower us as we go, and teach us what’s necessary for execution.
But at some point, God’s go must meet our “Behold, I will…”
We will to do so much in a day, a week, a month, and over years.
What do we WILL for God?
Selah, and love to all.
