Have you ever had something you knew God wanted you to do, but you didn’t feel like you could do it? Or maybe you could do it, but you didn’t want to do it?
I was having my own struggles with this the other day, so I decided to look into the Bible for help.
I got so much out of the story of Moses I thought I would write a Bible study on him. I hope it helps you as much as it helped me.
Bible Study: When God Asks You to Do the Impossible
1. Read Exodus 3:1-10. What does God want Moses to do in Exodus 3:10?
2. Why did God ask Moses to do that? (Exodus 3:7-9)
3. Think of your own ministry or difficult situation in life. What do you think God is asking you to do?
4. Why do you think He wants you to do it? Is it for your benefit, someone else’s benefit, or for both of you? Explain.
