The conflicting prayers of Moses

Have you ever responded eagerly to a call by God only to have fear or apprehension enter the equation? Moses did.
At first, the Burning Bush consumed his curiosity – but, amazingly, not the bush! As he turned aside to better see, he immediately heard God’s call.
Moses answered like a school kid at roll call! But when he realized God wanted him to do something big, trepidations set in, and he begged God to send someone else.
You know the rest of the story. Despite his hesitation, Moses obeyed God’s will and did the job he’d been asked to do – leading God’s people out of slavery.


Exodus 3:4 – a prayer of Moses
And when the Lord saw that he
(Moses) turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses.
And he (Moses) said, Here am I.
Exodus 4:13
And he
(Moses) said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.
