Use What You Have - Joel Osteen Today's Word (September-17-2020)

Joel Osteen (September-17-2020) Today's Word: Use What You Have. 

Today’s Scripture: Exodus 4:11, NLT: Then the LORD asked Moses, "Who makes a person's mouth?... Is it not I, the LORD?"

Today’s Word: When God told Moses to go and tell Pharaoh, "Let My people go." Moses said, "God, I can't do that. I don't speak well. I stutter." Moses was saying, "God, I don't have what it takes. You didn't give me that gift. I'm afraid." He kept making excuse after excuse until the Scripture says, "God became angry with Moses." He was angry because Moses saw his gift as not enough. He's displeased when we're not using what He's given us, when we're making excuses, discounting our gifts. God said to Moses, "Who made your tongue?" He was saying, "Moses, I created the universe. I flung stars into space. You didn't get shortchanged. You're not lacking anything. God would not ask you to do something if He hadn't already given you what you need. Quit saying, "If I was as gifted or good looking as they are, I could do something great." No, take the talent you have and develop it. If you'll use what you have, God will give you more.

Prayer for Today: "Father, thank You for the gifts and the talents You put in me. Thank You that I don't have to have what I think is a big gift for You to use me in a great way. I will be faithful to develop what You've given me and trust You to give me more as I increase it. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
