Moses and God

“I want you to do this, the future hangs on it.”

“But I don’t know if I can.”

“Right now, I am only asking you to speak to Pharaoh and tell him what I tell you.”

“But I don’t know what scares me most—him ignoring me, or what happens if he does let your people go.”

“They are not just my people, Moses, they are your people too.”

“But I am here in the desert…I feel safe out here.”

“Yes, and I have been preparing you these past forty years. You will be coming back!”

“I don’t really want to do anything new; I like my life.”

“Yes, and now I have molded your youthful impulsive foolishness out of you; I am ready to send you.”

“But I might just make things worse, like when I killed the Egyptian.”

“Yes, you will at first, your people will hate you when Pharaoh punishes them for what you say.”

“But why do you want a murderer, anyway?”

“I will not share my glory with another, so I am glad you realize your need of my grace.”

“But I can’t even speak clearly, God, can’t you send my brother?!”

“I will send him with you, but you must go and free them.”

“But I don’t know if I can!”

(Based on Exodus 3-4)
