Trust in the Lord with all your heart – Prayer for October 28. Praise the Lord everybody! Sometimes God will assign us a task that we think is above our “pay grade,” our gifts and abilities. In other words we have a Moses moment, as he had when he spoke to God in Exodus 3:9-11.
Bible Verse for Today
“Now, therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now, therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt. And Moses said unto God, who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:9-11)
Like Moses, we feel not only unworthy but also ill-equipped for such a task. We not only begin to question our hearing, but we may begin to also question God’s judgment. The enemy seizes the moment and starts to plant the seeds of fear and doubt.
Just as God told Moses not to worry and that He would surely be with him, God wants us to know the same thing. God tells us in His word Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
God wants us to trust Him as David did when we face our Goliaths, with faith knowing that God has our back, knowing that He would not send us on a mission to fail. He tells us that we are “more than conquerors” in Romans 8:37. God wants us to stop asking Him “who am I” and turn it around and declare “who I am” in Him, by standing up in faith and walking in our calling.
God wants us to trust in our gifts. He knows what He has invested in each of us and He wants us to put them on display, not for our glory, but for His glory. God wants us to go from “WHO AM I” TO “I AM”. To quote Joel Osteen “I am who God says I am!” Trust in the Lord with all your heart! God bless you all.

Father God, we thank you that you know who we are and what we are, even when we do not. Help us Lord to trust you more, and not question you when you give us an assignment. Your will, not our will be done. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
