(3) IF GOD HAS A WORK FOR US TO DO, HE WILL HELP EQUIP US FOR IT.

3. IF GOD HAS A WORK FOR US TO DO, HE WILL HELP EQUIP US FOR IT.
Exodus 4:1-5:

“Then Moses answered and said, ‘But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, “The LORD has not appeared to you.”‘ So the LORD said to him, ‘What is that in your hand?’ He said, ‘A rod.’ And He said, ‘Cast it on the ground.’ So he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘Reach out your hand and take it by the tail’ (and he reached out his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand), ‘that they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.'”
God had big plans for Moses as a mediator and deliverer, yet Moses initially resisted quite strongly. Moses had concerns about his ability to convince the people but God removed every obstacle. He answered Moses’ questions and gave him the necessary power. God won’t expect you to do something that you cannot do. He will give you the tools to succeed!
