Shame Breaker, Week 1 – Friday The Shame of Not Being Enough

Today’s Scripture – Exodus 4:10-17; Psalm 103:7-9; Isaiah 41:10 (S.O.A.P. Ps 103:7-9; Isa 41:10)

Exodus 4:10-17

10 But Moses pleaded with the Lord, “O Lord, 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.”

11 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? 12 Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.”

13 But Moses again pleaded, “Lord, please! Send anyone else.”

14 Then the Lord became angry with Moses. “All right,” he said. “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he speaks well. And look! He is on his way to meet you now. He will be delighted to see you. 15 Talk to him, and put the words in his mouth. I will be with both of you as you speak, and I will instruct you both in what to do. 16 Aaron will be your spokesman to the people. He will be your mouthpiece, and you will stand in the place of God for him, telling him what to say. 17 And take your shepherd’s staff with you, and use it to perform the miraculous signs I have shown you.”

Psalm 103:7-9

He revealed his character to Moses
    and his deeds to the people of Israel.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
    slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
He will not constantly accuse us,
    nor remain angry forever.

Isaiah 41:10

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
    Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
    I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

This man child sent to me I know for a purpose. I feel inadequate – like in 10 months I have been unable to bring him closer to knowing God. I really have not even discussed his faith with him. It has been a challenge to just keep him in the home and out of a daily conflict with someone out of the home or me and my husband. I seek Jesus constantly for help and forgiveness of my daily transgressions. I also seek to know where to go with this young man – 18 years of age in two months and perhaps out of my influence. Lord please I pray for my purpose in this young life – so angry – so know it all –. Can I make a difference? Hurt by life -can I Love him enough to let him know that God loves him. Lead me Trust is needed. I trust in Jesus can show that trust to the boy soon man
