31 January: Life with a Stutter

Today’s chapter is a perfect example of how the Playwright uses foolish things to shame the wise and weak things to shame the strong[a]

No one in their right mind would show up in the throne room of the greatest civilization on earth – Ancient Egypt – and stand there stuttering while your brother translates your mumbles. This is especially so if you’re son of a slave and an ex-murderer who has managed to so far escape the law! At the very least, such embarrassing behaviour and waste of Pharaoh’s time, would certainly warrant a death sentence! Yet their audacious presence, and unusual way of communication, was perhaps the only thing that would get Pharaoh to stop and listen:

“See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet…”[b]

Outreach Bulletin CoversWhat’s interesting for me in today’s chapter is that, when my Maker puts His hand in mine, He has the ability to see what I can’t see, and use what I certainly wouldn’t use – even if I’d thought up such a plan! Moses may have experienced life with a stutter but his books (the first five books of the Bible) are still in print and sold globally in the world’s all-time bestseller, four millenniums after his lifetime! In addition, they’re the only part of the Bible that is accepted as authoritative Scripture by Muslims as well as Jews and Christians. Pretty amazing for a guy with “faltering lips”, who had once told the Lord God Almighty to go find someone else to do the job![c]

My soul praises the Lord. I’ll not forget His benefits. He forgives all my sin and heals all my diseases. [Psalm 103:2-3]

May You, the God of hope, fill me with all joy and peace in believing, so that I’ll abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. [Romans 15:13]
