Who hath made man… have not I the LORD?

“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. And the Lord said unto him, who hath made man’s mouth? Or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I the Lord? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.” Exodus 4:10-12
Every person has their insecurities, something that makes it difficult for you to serve God in the capacity in which he has called you. For me, it’s that I am usually too busy with the kids, or I struggle to understand sign language. I also struggle with accepting God’s will in reaching the deaf because I did not prepare for it, and spent most of my life learning music and training to reach hearing people. When I look at my life now it doesn’t make sense to me.
God has completely changed the path of my life recently in a way I cannot understand. It would be very easy for me to say, “Lord, what are you doing? I cannot do that? I’ve spent my whole life preparing for this!” But this is not what God has for me…
God’s ways really are higher than our ways, when you cannot understand life, that is when you can rest assured, knowing it is of the Lord. He is the one who has created you in the exact person you are. He has a special plan just for you, and he created you in the inabilities that you have so that He gets all the glory.
Friend, do not be discouraged, because not only has He created you just the way you are, but He also promises to be with your inabilities. Moses was insecure about his speech and God said to him, “I will be with thy mouth.” Whatever He has called you to he is saying “Now therefore go, I will be with thy.              .” (You fill in the blank)
I can hear the Lord saying in this passage “Now therefore go, and I will be with thy hands.”
