May 9 Devotion: What Limitations?

What Limitations?

Exodus 3:11-12 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? [12] And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

If I was to mention a certain sport we would all see in our mind the type of person that would play that sport. What do you think of for a football player? Big, strong, fast, etc. We have that person in mind that we think it would take to succeed. Would you think someone could play in the NFL with only 1 hand? When I first heard it I thought no way. How could you catch? How could you hold on to tackle with only one hand? However, that’s exactly what a young man by the name of Shaquem Griffin has done for 4 years. I remember when I first heard is story in his last year of college. He plays linebacker and was born with something that caused him to lose his left hand. Even without that hand he had a dream to play in the NFL. He wasn’t interested though in the limitations the world might set on him, nor was he interested in setting limitations on himself. Think of our text verses. Moses was placing limitations on himself and what he could do. We could’ve read on how Moses continually made excuses on why he couldn’t go unto Pharaoh. God gives him all the answer he really needs in verse 12. God tells him that He will be with him. What more do we truthfully need? How often have you argued with God about something that He has led you to do. Do you begin to place limitations on YOUR capabilities and what YOU can do? Moses was too fixated on what himself. He began to look at his limitations as well as what others around him would think or believe what his limitations should be. We might place limitations on ourselves out of the fear of the unknown. It’s easier to say I can’t than to just flat out say no. We might place limitations on ourselves by looking at our own capabilities. Think of Moses telling God he wasn’t eloquent of speech. We look at ourselves instead of what God can do through us. Regardless of the reason you are placing limitations on yourself don’t forget it’s not about you. If God is calling you and wanting to use you for something then He will equip you with all you need. Just trust Him because He is limitless!!
