Then I Started Confessing
Do find it strange when you start talking to your best friend just about life then all of a sudden your crying and confessing things you have never really told anyone? Well tonight I did just that. Then in that moment I realized that I am sitting here saying I can't and my friend is saying, your right but God can. Oh, talk about holding you accountable. I am so thankful for the friends in my life that listen to me, then they don't tell me what they think I want to hear. They hold me accountable and tell me the truth. If you have a friend like that then you have a true treasure. I am blessed to have a treasure box of friends who have walked with me through some dark times and have been there for me. They have loved me enough to tell me the truth, even if it hurt. They have also been there through the good times to encourage me. They have helped me stay focused and remind me that with God nothing is impossible. That He has a plan and that His plans are better than ours.
This made me start thinking about Moses and Aaron. Moses did not think that he had what it took to do what the Lord was asking of him. So, Moses ask the Lord to let someone else take the responsibility because he didn't think he could do it. Then the Lord sent Moses brother Arron to help him. It says in scripture that “the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses” ( Wow, that is pretty scary I am sure I don't want to know how many times the Lords anger has been kindled against me.) The Lord knew that Moses could do it because he would give him the ability. I am so grateful for Gods mercy and when He sends us to do something then He will equip us for it. God did that for Moses and sent him Aaron, someone to walk with him and help him.
I am thankful that we don't walk this life alone. If you ever find your self saying you can't, God says you can, and He not only sends the Holy Spirit to guide you, he can send friends to walk with you along the way. Having true friends that believe in you when you don't believe in your self is a wonderful treasure to have.
Exodus 4 :10-15 10 But Moses said to the Lord, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” 11 Then the Lord said to him, “Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.” 13 But he said, “Oh, my Lord, please send someone else.” 14 Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses and he said, “Is there not Aaron, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Behold, he is coming out to meet you, and when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart. 15 You shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth, and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth and will teach you both what to do.
