Exo. 3:10-11 – “Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt.” 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?
It is time for me to kick back and take it easy. I spent 40 years in Egypt studying and developing my talents. I moved to Midian and worked these last 40 years tending to sheep and my family.”
So how do you accomplish a project for which you feel totally unqualified?
Remember if someone has asked you to be the leader of a project it is because they have faith in you. (If you are working somewhere and you are asked because your supervisor wants to see you fail. Then seriously you need to be looking for another job.)
God asks Moses to lead because He believes he is capable of accomplishing this task. Plus, He knows that He is going to be there to help him complete this project.
Moses’ real problem is he lacks faith in God.
He tries to hide his trust issues of God behind the veil of “Who am I?” A lot of people have this same problem. We don’t trust God will help us finish the job at hand, but this is difficult to admit. So we place the blame on ourselves by saying we are the smallest, the weakest, or some other bodily handicap or character flaw.
If you want to accomplish something great then remember who asked you and trust their judgment of you.
If you are being asked to accomplish a huge task do you know those in authority? Do you know how to approach them and when? Can you speak their language?
How has life educated you for this opportunity?
Remember most of your education didn’t come from the classroom unless you are or were a teacher. Your education has continued to come from what you have learned in everyday life.
Last week I used a lesson that my dad taught me nearly 50 years ago. He said, “If you have a vibration in your steering wheel while driving or braking something is wrong with the front tires or brakes.
If you have a vibration in your seat something will be wrong with the rear tires or brakes.”
My wife told me she noticed a vibration when she applied the brakes in the steering wheel. I drove the car and there was a vibration in the steering wheel when I applied the brakes.
When I took the car to the mechanic he discovered the car needed new front rotors. When they installed new rotors the vibration disappeared. Thanks Dad for the lesson.
Remember the lessons you learned in life and apply them as you accomplish the project that you have been asked to do.
Moses learned he could trust God the One who asked him to accomplish the project of leading the children out of Egypt. God helped Moses and they lead the children out of Egypt.
God will help you and this is what you need to believe. Trust in God and everything will work out fine.

A college education never hurt anyone who was willing to learn after he/she acquired it.
