Did you hear the one about the TV weather reporter who lost her job because her forecasts were never accurate? In an interview for another position, she was asked why she left her last job. She replied, “The climate didn’t agree with me.”
We can invent some very clever excuses, especially when it comes to our reluctance to serve the Lord. Like Moses in Exodus 4, we can find all kinds of reasons to decline the Lord’s call to serve him.
However, the Lord answers our excuses with the promise of his presence and his power. God will never send us out on any mission without coming along with us, giving us his strength every step of the way.
“To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”—Colossians 1:29.
