I've always loved Moses and his hesitation with God's request. I see so many of us in Moses and his honesty with God with feeling unworthy to answer the call.

Just this past weekend, I went to see the new Colin Firth movie called "The King's Speech" and it was wonderful. It spoke so beautifully to feeling less than and not up to what a king should be just because he was born to be king. Of course, Colin's character the role of King George wasn't suppose to ever be king, but we all know that things sometimes change, don't we? I loved it when in the movie when his character shouts that he has a voice and Geoffrey Rush's character replies INDEED, you do...

Being born to be king doesn't mean a world without issues, does it? It just means you were born into a family just like everybody else and you still have issues! The movie shows so beautifully how you overcome with the help of others around you, but mostly with God. Now the movie doesn't mention Him, but I know He had bigger plans for this King for all of this to happen. I wish we had more details about the story and King George's faith walk because I think it would make an even bigger impact on people. Anyway...back to Moses!

Moses tried so hard to say but...I can't and God wouldn't allow this answer to take place! Five times he tried to reply with but this or that and finally God replies to Moses after the forth time...Who makes a person's mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go! I will be with you...Do you hear the Lord growing a little impatient with Moses? I do.

But Moses tries one more time with pleading it tells us and the Lord got angry with Moses! God was not happy with Moses reluctance to take up the staff was he, but yet He told Moses he would give him a helper in his brother, Aaron. Moses was still going to be the one in charge though, in spite of his buts...God wasn't going to allow Moses to change HIS PLANS, he would just allow Moses a helper to get the job done.

God loves us in spite of our reluctance with His plans...Yes HIS PLANS! When will we ever get His plans for our life. It isn't our life to do with as we please. God provides us with an amazing adventure, if we allow His plans to work and proceed. So how will you respond to His plans for your life?

Sweet blessings,
