Read: Exodus 4:1-17; Jeremiah 1:6; Romans 8:28
Reflect: God calls Moses, and Moses is afraid. Who wouldn’t be? It’s so human to worry when God pushes us out of our comfort zone! As Paul writes, when we’re called to God’s purpose, all things will work together for good, but the path forward can be scary or just hard. Very few people are called to do a job as big as Moses’ job, but even small jobs for God can overwhelm and frighten us. Is God calling you in some way? What excuses are you coming up with? How can you overcome your fear and take that next step in your personal faith journey?

Recite the Week's Verse: Isaiah 41:13 For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.”
Pray: Gracious Lord, Help me grow in courage and faith so that my fear does not stop me from doing what is right in your eyes. Amen.
