Sometimes the word of God to us in a particular situation is not quite the message we were hoping for. We don’t get the feeling from reading their stories that Moses was thrilled when God named him the new leader of Israel, or even that Jesus himself embraced his call without dreading what it would demand from him. And yet, with every challenge there comes a promise; with every call there is an assurance of God’s strength present in our weakness.
