Do not Loose your Blessings
And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses.. - Exodus 4:14
After Moses' experience in the wilderness running from Pharaoh after killing an Egyptian, he encountered an Angle of the Lord in the form of a burning bush. The Lord spoke unto Moses via the Angle asking him to speak to Pharaoh to release His people - the Israelites. Moses here thought that he did not have the ability of a good orator to do the job. Even though a great and wonderful sign of God's power were shown to Moses, he depended not on God's ability but his own to do the job. Since he knew he lacked the ability he asked the Lord to send someone else. This failure cost Moses and his generations a lot. If Moses had said yes, Aaron his brother would not have been in the picture. It would not have been Aaron's sons who would be called to become priest. There would have been a high possibility of Moses' sons being selected, who do not project in God's marvelous work. Moses and his generation lost the blessing due to a 'NO'.
As Christians we are called to give the Good News of salvation to others. How many times have we said 'NO'. Do you have any idea to the loose of blessing as an individual and your generations have lost? If you do not figure in God's plan of salvation what is the worth of this life? This world will end and all things will cease to exist, then the only thing that counts is your part in God's plan.
Ask the Lord today; whom does He want to send you to, to give the message of salvation, words of encouragement, words of love, words of hope, words of comfort?
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord I am sorry in the past I said no to You. Lord today I stand in front of You, let not the fire be on the bush but in my heart. By the power of your Spirit not by my ability will I go to do your mission. I make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

11 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?
