Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional January 11 2021 – Adjusting Your Self-Doubt
So the Lord said to [Moses], “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
Recommended Reading: Joshua 1:1-5
Sometimes self-doubt is a reasonable response. As we enter into new challenges in life, we wonder if we have what it takes to overcome them. Setting our mind to playing in the NBA is likely not possible for most of us. Sometimes our human desires and goals need to be adjusted.
But what about those goals to which God calls us? Would God call us to do something for which He has not equipped us to succeed? Moses wondered that when God called him to go to Egypt and lead the Hebrews from bondage. Moses raised four different objections, and God gave him an answer for each one. The final answer was the best: “I can make the mute speak, so I will equip you to speak to Pharaoh.” Moses went and succeeded because God enabled him.
Don’t let self-doubt tempt you to doubt God. Whatever God’s call for your life, His enabling will be there.
Faith enables us to so rejoice in the Lord that our infirmities become platforms for the display of His grace.
C. H. Spurgeon
