Is this different for me?
I am sure this is going to come across wrong, but lacking the eloquence to say it right, I will just say it and hope that God will correct it in your mind when you read it...
There is this aspect that many of you will have seen:
Moses before the Burning Bush saying:
11 But Moses said to God, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?" Exodus 3:11 (NIV)
Saul, blinded on the road:
10"'What shall I do, Lord?' I asked. "
'Get up,' the Lord said, 'and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.' Acts 22:10 (NIV)
John before Jesus:
14But John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?" Matthew 3:14 (NIV)
John was trained by his parents, who knew who he should be. Moses was raised in the household of Pharoh to lead. Saul pursued his training with zeal and honest dedication to God. They were all prepared in different ways for their moment. God did not just drop in suddenly without preparing them. Yet still, they had questions about their worthiness. For most of us, that brings comfort. I too, gain comfort knowing about a measure that is not too hard to understand and within my ability to see a mere man like myself being capable of. Yet, I am uneasy when I think of the moment I am being prepared for. I can see that I can question a little as they did without being unusable by God. But I must do what he asks, and I feel this moment coming and quickly.
I am not sure exactly what it is. I have ideas, but they may or may not be right. It is fearful indeed!!!
With Humility that Belies what I say here,
