“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?’”
If you were God, would you have chosen Moses to lead His people out of Egypt? He was a has-been, a failure. But it seems that God always goes out of His way to choose the most unlikely candidates to do the most unlikely things. We find a pattern of this in the Bible.
Jonah, for example, was effectively a racist. He hated the Ninevites and wanted nothing to do with them, but God told him to go and preach to the people of Nineveh. Why Jonah?
I think it’s because God wanted to use a man who didn’t think he would ever do such a thing. That way, He would get the glory.
