God told Moses He would teach him what he should say and what he should do, yet Moses was still unsure of himself and so he asked God to pick someone else.
God did allow Moses to have Aaron, his brother, speak but God still gave Moses the words Aaron should say.
“Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
But he said, “O my Lord, please send by the hand of whomever else You may send.”
So the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and He said: “Is not Aaron the Levite your brother? I know that he can speak well. And look, he is also coming out to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.
Now you shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth. And I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will teach you what you shall do.”
Exodus 4:12-15 [NKJV]
MY PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Dear God, my prayer, everyday, is that I would have a Teachable Mouth and that You, God, would teach me what to say and how to say it for Your glory.
I also pray that you would give me the boldness and confidence I need to speak Your words whenever You want me to speak them.
Thank You Lord God. Amen.
A Teachable Mouth’s Daily Prayer:
teach me how to speak for You,
and show me where to go.
Teach me what to say and when,
that Your words I may sow.
Teach me in the morning
the words You’d have me say,
then give me grace to speak them
to those I meet throughout my day.
