Day 10

Embraced in our Brokenness

“Now go, for I am sending you to Pharaoh. You must lead my people Israel out of Egypt.” But Moses protested to God, “Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?” God answered, “I will be with you. And this is your sign that I am the one who has sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God at this very mountain.”

Exodus 3:10-12 NLT

God calls Moses to lead his people to freedom, choosing a man who initially sees only his brokenness and inadequacies. It's a common human experience - feeling unworthy and insufficient in the face of God's call. Just as Moses questioned his capability, we too often wrestle with our limitations. But, what if our inadequacies weren’t reasons God couldn’t - but opportunities for God to move?

Moses' vulnerability becomes a canvas upon which God paints His redemption story. Similarly, our brokenness can be the backdrop for God's grace to manifest in surprising and profound ways.

Reflect on the broken areas of your life. Are there insecurities, past wounds, or self-doubts that you hesitate to bring before God? Being honest with God about our brokenness doesn't diminish our worth; instead, it invites God's healing touch into our brokenness.

Just as God responded to Moses with assurance and guidance, He responds to us with a call to purpose, even amidst our brokenness. Today, embrace your vulnerabilities, knowing that it is in acknowledging them that God's transformative power can reshape your narrative and lead you into a journey of purpose and freedom.

How can bringing your brokenness to God lead to a deeper understanding of God's call and purpose in your life?
