If God Has Commissioned Us…

June 6, 2014

What an encouraging post Israeliteindeed writes today for those whom God has called to preach His Word! Here it is:


I think too of Moses when the Lord called him to be the one to deliver a whole nation out of slavery. Because he felt inadequate, he asked God to choose someone else. But God insisted that Moses was the man He had commissioned, though He did add to help him, his brother Aaron. Moses then went, and not only did he deliver the Israelites out of Egypt, but he was given a rave review for all mankind to read in Dt. 34:10-12.

Another man I think of who did not feel adequate or courageous enough to do an important task God commissioned him to do –to deliver the Lord’s people out of enemy bondage– is Gideon. But Gideon did go, he did break down the idols, and he did lead a (tiny) army to great victory. They defeated their oppressors miraculously.

If God has commissioned us to do work for Him, then, as Israeliteindeed says, we must do it, we must never give up, and we must go forward in spite of all obstacles. This we can do –by the power of the Spirit and because God has called and sent us to do it.

with love,
