“Now, behold, the cry of the sons of Israel has come to Me; furthermore, I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians are oppressing them. Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt.” But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?” And He said, “Certainly I will be with you, and this shall be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God at this mountain.”
Be looking for ways to be part of the answer to your prayers!
Moses was deeply concerned for the plight of his people in Egypt. He’d been chased out of Egypt for standing up for them. He must have been so glad to hear God say that He was going to respond to the prayers of His people.
But it caught Moses by surprise when God told Moses he’d be a key player in the process. It’s one thing to be concerned and pray for someone from outside their circumstances; it’s another thing altogether to get involved in those circumstances as part of the answer.
When you pray, God wants you to have an attitude of availability if He calls you to get involved.
