June 3 Devotion: It’s Not A Can’t Problem

It’s Not A Can’t Problem

Exodus 4:10-12

[10] And Moses said unto the Lord , O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. [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 ? [12] Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.

We all know the story here of Moses coming up with excuse after excuse on why he can’t do certain things. That was the easy way out I believe Moses thought. That. same though can be said of us a lot of times. It’s easy to just say I can’t, and then just move on. We think that that absolves us from all responsibilities. The big problem with that thought process is that it’s simply not true. If God shows us something He wants us to do then He has already equipped us with the ability to accomplish it.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

When we realize “can’t” isn’t an excuse, we then get to the truth of the situation. As our Pastor said in our morning service this past Sunday, “it’s a won’t problem.” God will give us the ability to perform whatever it is He places in our lives. Whether it’s a life long calling like the call to preach, or God putting someone in our path to share the Gospel with. We may not like to use the word won’t. Won’t makes it sound like such a personal issue, instead of something out of control so to speak. That in turn is where the problem lies. It’s not a can’t problem, but a won’t problem. We must stop trying to look and offer up excuses on why we can’t, and just rely on God!

What are you not doing today simply because you won’t?

God bless you today!
