This morning my high school aged daughter told me about a sermon by Matt Chandler that she was listening to. The sermon was called “God is Able”. The message was focused on Moses in Exodus Chapter 4, and Chandler spoke about the key to finding the power of God in our lives. I can’t seem to shake this thought that he shared: “The omnipotent might of God almost always flows through obedience in faith.” The pattern then is still the same today … God speaks, we obey (exactly), then God shows up in an amazing way. God was not concerned with Moses’ past, his excuses, his brokenness, his limitations, his abilities. God had all that covered. God simply wanted Moses to act in obedience rooted in faith.
I’m so thankful for a daughter who pursues God and points me to sermons. I’m also thankful for a God who pursues me and patiently points me towards obedience.
