“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?’” Exodus 3:11
Do you question your ability, thinking you aren’t qualified to write? Do you wish you had tougher skin? You are not alone.
I can begin to question myself when I look at my own puny abilities and strength.
Moses questioned his qualifications. “Who am I?” he asked God. And what was God’s answer? ”I will be with you.” The same God who equipped Moses, can equip you.
When I look at myself through God’s eyes and realize that He is with me, everything changes. God can work through me.
Continue to do your part – attend writing conferences, pray before you write, read books on writing, and write, write, write. After all, it’s a skill. But trust God to do His part – to equip you and use you.
Near the end of his life Moses encouraged others with what he had learned about God from his experiences:
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
If God has called you to write, He will be right there with you. As we move forward we experience His faithfulness and begin to see ourselves differently.
How do you see yourself today?
