Lent Day 29

Making Straight The Way

“What of your brother Aaron, the Levite?…You shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth; and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do. He indeed shall speak for you to the people; he shall serve as a mouth for you, and you shall serve as God for him.  Exodus 4:10-20  Sometimes our children don’t yet have the confidence to do what we as parents already know is gifted within them. In his self-exile Moses lost his confidence, but God knew that within him was a longing heart for the people of God. Moses would not always need the assistance of Aaron. As he draws ever closer in his relationship with God, Moses’ boldness before God also increases. Even as life experiences sometimes beats down our own confidence, it is our confidence in God’s presence within us, which picks us up, leads the way as we boldly move forward in Christ confident that God our Provider prepares the way.
