Exodus 6:28 - 30

"Now when the Lord spoke to Moses in Egypt, he said to him, 'I am the Lord. Tell Pharaoh king of Egypt everything I tell you.' But Moses said to the Lord, 'Since I speak with faltering lips, why would Pharaoh listen to me?'" NIV translation

When called by the Lord, Moses' answer was that he was not capable. He understood that the mission was huge and he did not feel up to the task. This is common among the people that are used by God in mighty ways. It is very rare that God will use someone that is prominent or especially well trained.

Moses lost sight of the fact that God was the Deliverer and that he was only to be the messenger. As Christians, we can fall into the same type of thing when we think of sharing the gospel with those around us. It is one thing to be humbled and honored that God gives us the chance to serve but it is another to think that success depends on our efforts or abilities.
