Moses thinks God has made the wrong choice in choosing him to lead Israel. He disagrees with God five times in chapters 3 and 4, and God gets tired of it in verse 14. There is also a strange story about circumcision in chapter 4 that shows Moses’ obvious lack of qualification. He is about to enter Egypt to lead the nation, but has not circumcised his own son. Circumcision was required by God as a sign that Israel belongs to Him (Genesis 17:10). Moses couldn’t be an effective spiritual leader in the nation if he was unwilling to lead his family in obeying a simple command.
Have you ever had one of these arguments with God? We tell the God of the Universe we know better than He does. Regardless of how qualified we may feel, God’s plan is always best!
