Extend the Kingdom

Let not your prayers be all concerning your own sins, your own wants, your own imperfections, and your own trials, but let them climb the starry ladder and get up to Christ Himself. Then, as you draw nigh to the blood-sprinkled mercy seat, offer this prayer continually, “Lord, extend the kingdom of Your dear Son.” Such a petition, fervently presented, will elevate the spirit of all your devotions. Mind that you prove the sincerity of your prayer by laboring to promote the Lord’s glory.  –  Robert Spurgeon

Excuses, Excuses

God called Moses to free his people from Egypt.

Moses’ Excuse God’s Response
Why me? I am not qualified. (Ex 3:11) I will be with you. (Ex 3:12)
I have so many questions. I don’t know all the answers.  (Ex. 3:13) I AM THAT I AM (I’ve had this from long ago.) (Ex. 3:14, 15)
Everyone will think I am crazy when I tell them I talked to God. (Ex 4:1) God provided miracles so people would know it was Him.  (Ex. 4:2-9
I don’t have the right skills. (Ex. 4:10) God shared His experience and skills. (Ex. 4:11,12)
I can’t. I’m not comfortable. (Ex. 4:13) God got angry and then let him use Aaron to help him. (Ex. 4:14-17)

Moses went on to be a great leader for God.  God knew he would.  Sometimes, we have to stop talking and just follow.
