Speak Part 6

Delivering Moses

Jonathan Stockstill

February 5, 2017

God wants to do BIG THINGS THROUGH YOU!

  • He’s been planning it since you were born.
  • Everything you’ve been through is preparing you for this moment.
  • The purpose is the salvation of the world.

GOD PULLS YOU OUT OF EGYPT TO SEND YOU BACK INTO EGYPT.

Before God delivers Egypt, He must DELIVER MOSES!

Moses and the four I AM NOTs:

1. I am not SIGNIFICANT:

“Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11 NLT).

  • You are known.
    • The chief reason many of us don’t think we can accomplish something is because we don’t feel known by anyone. We feel insignificant.
    • When you are known by God, anything can happen. In one day you can go from the pit to the palace.
  • You can challenge Pharaoh.
  • You can lead people out.

2. I am not QUALIFIED:

“What if they won’t believe me or listen to me? What if they say, ‘The LORD never appeared to you’?” (Exodus 4:1 NLT).

  • What’s in your hand? Shepherd’s staff > snake
    • God wants to use your talents and the things that make you unique to rescue people.
  • What’s in your past? Clean > leprous
    • God wants to use your past as a testimony to save others.
  • How will God use your talents and your past? Water > blood
    • God will sanctify who you are and what you’ve done by His blood.

3. I am not GIFTED:

“I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled” (Exodus 4:10 NLT).

  • If the devil can’t make you feel insignificant and disqualified, he will try to tell you that you don’t have the skills to fulfill your calling.
  • God aligned Moses.
    • Exodus 4:11-12 NLT: “Then the Lord asked Moses, ‘Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.’”
  • What matters only a little is what you think you can or can’t do; what matters most is God’s ANOINTING on what you do.
  • God’s anointing is the supernatural empowerment of your gifting.

4. I am not ENOUGH:

“But Moses again pleaded, ‘Lord, please! Send anyone else’” (Exodus 4:13 NLT).

  • Now God got frustrated with Moses.

    • He had reassured his significance.
    • He had forgiven his past.
    • He had anointed his gifts.
    • But now Moses was still asking to be excused.
  • You are not alone!

    • God’s Spirit is in you.
    • God wants to put you on a team making a difference.
    • This is one of the reasons we believe in B-Groups. They are your family, but they are also your ministry team.

God: I AM THAT I AM

Exodus 3:13-15 NLT: “But Moses protested, ‘If I go to the people of Israel and tell them, “The God of your ancestors has sent me to you,” they will ask me, “What is his name?” Then what should I tell them?’ God replied to Moses, ‘I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you.’ God also said to Moses, ‘Say this to the people of Israel: Yahweh, the God of your ancestors—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you. This is my eternal name, my name to remember for all generations.’”

I AM THAT I AM = I am the initiator and the finisher. I started it all and will end it all. I am and there is no other.
