Then Moses replied, “Yeah, I got that. I know who You are, but who am I?”
That question is one of the most important you will ever ask. Your answer will affect the way you look at life, tackle your troubles, and frame your circumstances. The answer to that question can give you the confidence to accomplish your calling or take away your courage to even begin. If you don’t answer that question with the truth of God, the devil will answer it for you with his bag of lies. Do not let your past mistakes and failures define you. That is the voice of shame. You are not what you have done or failed to do . You are not what has been done to you. You are who God says you are. His child.
God can use whatever you’ve got, but you’ve got to use what you’ve got. Look what Jesus did with five loaves and two fish. Look what David did with a single stone. Look what Shamgar did with the jawbone of an ox. They used what they had. We tend to pray that God will give us more power. But it could be that He is waiting for us to access the power we already have. Let go of excuses. Take hold of what you have in Christ.
Do not let your past mistakes and failures define you. That is the voice of shame, the voice of the devil.
