MONDAY, March 14

Exodus 4:10 But Moses said to the LORD, “O my LORD, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor even now that you have spoken to your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”

Moses tried to get out of the work God had called him to do. But God was persistent and agreed to use Aaron to speak for Moses. Perhaps there is a lesson for us. When God calls us, God also equips us with what we need. Sometimes God’s gift may be in working with other people.

Asking for help isn’t easy for most of us, but that’s just what Moses needed. He couldn’t do it on his own. Today many business leaders are teaching new generations of leaders to learn to ask for help. We have to realize not only are there plenty of things we cannot do on our own, but also that God might have someone else in mind to work with us. I know that quite often when I need help, I dread asking for it. But when I give in and ask, I often discover that someone was waiting for an invitation. God might have been speaking to them too, telling them to be ready.
