God will Teach You

And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say. Exodus 4:10‭, ‬12 KJV

What is outstanding in this dialogue is that it is between the creator and the creation. The irony is that it is still being repeated today. Many times we get overwhelmed by the divine assignment we are given by God. For that to happen, we tend to measure what we are asked to do by our experienced ability. The natural mind tells us it is impossible. What every assignment needs is God’s supernatural endowment. That should have been a proper place for Moses to have asked for divine help. Instead he voiced his fears. Jesus Christ demonstrates a different attitude. He too was afraid, but He went to the father instead of arguing with Him. Jesus pleaded: let this cup pass away from me, but not as I will. Mose’s fear brought Aaron into the equation. The consequences created by the entry of Aaron is still going on.
The real question is: Why did Moses fear, even though God was talking to him? Fear is described as an unpleasant emotion caused by threat of danger, pain or harm. Some maybe rational, irrational or primal. Whatever the form, they are used by the devil to cheat us from reaching our potential. 2Tim.1:7 says that fear is a spirit that is not given to us by God.
