Heavenly Father, how often I get distracted by what the world says I am and I don’t listen to who You say I am. Forgive me Father when I listen to people instead of You. Sometimes it seems the voices of those who don’t even know me are so loud I can’t seem to hear Your voice. You, who knows me better than I know myself. Help me to hear You and Your truth and shut out the noise of the world. Help me see myself as You see me. A forgiven sinner, who receives my gifts from You. You alone are worthy to guide me. Help me remember that Yours is the only voice that matters.
In Jesus’ name.
This passage shares the names of the tribes of Israel and concludes with God speaking once again to Moses telling him to approach Pharaoh with God’s words.
Moses feels unworthy and unclean stating he is uncircumcised and doubting that Pharaoh will listen to him.
This is a perfect example of how God uses those who love Him regardless of their cleanliness, background, parents, thoughts of worth, education, wealth, lack of wealth or status, etc.
Once again, God does not call us to be perfect to be used for His Kingdom. He only calls us to be obedient. Just as God equipped Moses, He will also equip us when He calls us.
What is God calling you to do for Kingdom purposes?

26 These are the Aaron and Moses to whom the Lord said: “Bring out the people of Israel from the land of Egypt by their hosts.” 27 It was they who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt about bringing out the people of Israel from Egypt, this Moses and this Aaron.
28 On the day when the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, 29 the Lord said to Moses, “I am the Lord; tell Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.” 30 But Moses said to the Lord, “Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips. How will Pharaoh listen to me?”
