Is God's Word enough for us?

Remember Moses? God wanted him to go to Pharaoh on His behalf. But Moses didn't want to go. He didn't feel like he was the right person for the job. And so, he questioned God.    

But God, who I am that I should go?

But God, what if they don't believe me?

But God, what if they don't listen to me?

But God. 

But God. 

But God.

God was performing miracles right in front of him. He was showing him the impossible was possible.

He was reassuring every doubt. He promised to be with him.

But despite it all, Moses still doubted.  

You would think God appearing in a burning bush would be enough.
You would think Him turning a staff into a snake would be enough.
You would think His every Word would be enough. 

But it wasn't enough for Moses.

God was standing right in front of him. Asking him to believe. Asking him to trust Him. 

"I will be with you," He promised.

And yet Moses still needed more.

It's easy to read that account in the Bible and call him crazy. "How much more did he need?" we ask.

But if we're honest, most of us are just like him. 

We need more too.

God will provide an opportunity and we hesitate.

"Are you sure, God?"

"Isn't there someone better, Lord?" 

When faced with using our faith, we question God as much as Moses did. 

"Why are you asking me to do, what I am not able to do?" 

The question from Moses becomes the question from us. 

And God answers from His place of promise.   

Abraham wasn't able, He reminds us.   
Joseph wasn't able. 
David wasn't able.  
None of them were able.

But none of them stopped at what they weren't able to do.  

In the most uncertain moments of their lives, God asked them to believe. 

That though they weren't able, He was.  

And now He asks us the same.

When we're faced with hard moments. When we're overcome with doubt.

When we're scared.

When it's too hard. When it's too much.

When we don't want to do what God is asking us to do.

Will we still do it? 

Will we trust Him anyway?

Will we listen to the promise of God's Word?

And will His Word be enough for us?



  1. I needed this so much, coming into the new year, wanting so much change in my life, yet afraid to accept that He has placed it all right in front of me. Faith without works is dead. Here's to stepping out in faith in 2023!

God took my mom

God took my mom.  When I was 6 years old and knew nothing about life.  Before I had a chance to know her. Long before I would have a way to remember her.  He took her.  And I grew up never having a mother. If God can see all, if God knows all, if God is in control...did He not think I would want a mom?  Or deserved a mom?  Or needed a mom?  Did He not care how painful it would be? Did He not care how awful it would feel?  Did He not care about me at all? Because I thought when you loved someone you wanted the best for them. You sacrificed for them. You made sure you did everything in your power to help them. And it didn't feel like God helped me. It felt like He punished me. And I had no idea why.  I just knew I hated it.  And there were moments that I hated Him.  When you're little, no one comes up to you and tells you it's going to be ok.  Most don't come up to you at all.  Because people shrink from talking about death.  They don't know what to say so they don

A Prayer for our Nation

Father, I pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3, for all who are in authority in this nation. I ask for Godly counsel and wisdom for the President and his Cabinet, Chief Justice, Associate Justices of the Supreme Court and all judges across this land.  Thank you for restoring to our nation righteous judges who hear Your voice and adhere to Your Word (Isaiah 1:26). We lift up the Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, members of the Senate and House of Representatives, and all other leaders at every level of our government to receive the wisdom of God, to act in obedience to that wisdom, and for the power of God to flow in their lives.  I declare that they hear and obey Your voice, Lord, and the voice of a stranger they will not follow. Lord, I pray that righteousness be manifest in the hearts of all in authority in our nation, and that they seek after You with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength. In the Name of Jesus.  Amen. (Prayer from Kenneth Copela
