“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt’” (Exodus 3:11).

The sense that you are being called by God to a particular task can be daunting and overwhelming. Like Moses, the tendency is to offer an initial response of excuses — “I’m just a nobody, I don’t know enough, I have no authority, I’m too inarticulate.” Yet, it is these very things that make you the perfect candidate to serve. It’s been said that Moses spent 40 years in Pharaoh’s court thinking he was a somebody, 40 years in the desert discovering he was a nobody, and 40 years in the wilderness showing what God can do with anybody who is a nobody. God’s call is always accompanied by God’s provision. It’s never you but always Him.
