You Are Chosen

"You are not smart enough." "You do not have what it takes." "Everyone will laugh at you." These are just a few lies that I have heard over my life time. I am certain that I am not alone when it comes to the attack of who I am. It saddens me to know that I have fallen for these lies time and time again. I don't want to believe them but for some crazy reason, once the lies have been whispered I start to believe them and agree with who they say I am. I want to be brave and bold. I want to say, "you liar that is not true you don't even know me I will not believe your lies!" What if Moses continued to believe the lies that were whispered to him? In Exodus 6:10 the Lord said to Moses, “Go and tell Pharaoh king of Egypt to let the Israelites go from his land. But Moses said in the LORD’s presence: If the Israelites will not listen to me, then how will Pharaoh listen to me, since I am such a poor speaker? Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron and gave them commands concerning both the Israelites and Pharaoh king of Egypt to bring the Israelites out of the land of Egypt. Can you believe that Moses was telling God (in a way) "you didn't make me good enough to do what you are calling me to do?" God was kind to Moses and let Aaron go with him. In

Exodus 7:6-7 we see, "they did just as the LORD commanded them. Moses was 80 years old and Aaron 83 when they spoke to Pharaoh.

What? He was 83 years old and still was being attacked by lies. He was obedient to what God was calling him to, yet I feel that Moses was still struggling or Aaron would not have been with him.

How many times do you believe the lies that are whispered within you or about you? Are we truly saying to God that he must have a case of mistaken Identity because what he is telling us to do is not who we think we are. I truly wish that I could tell you that I don't ever believe the lies anymore, however that would be a lie. I struggle with who God says I am and who I think I am.

This weekend I kept hearing the song by Hillsong "I am a child of God" over and over in my head."I am chosen, not forsaken, I am who you say I am. You are for me, not against me, I am who you say I am...... What a great reminder that I am who God says I am. Even when I am believing the lies he still knows who I am. I can trust that God knows me better than I know my self. If God calls us to something then he will equip us for the task at hand. He will not call us to do his work and then not give us the resources and talent to complete the task. Sometimes he will even bring others beside us to encourage us and be be part of the work he is calling us to. It does not mean that we are lacking but we are sharing in the work that God is calling us to. There is enough work for us all to do and he has called us sometimes to be the one in the spotlight and sometimes to be the one behind the scenes. Whatever God is calling you to, be bold in it,

own it and be obedient because God knows who you are and he has chosen you for a time such as this.
