“The LORD will accomplish what concerns me” – “I have planned it, surely I will do it.”

Today’s devotion comes from Exodus 4:10-17.

“Then Moses said to the LORD, “Please, Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant;  for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”  The LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth?  Or who makes him mute or deaf, or seeing or blind?  Is it not I, the LORD?  Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.”  But he said, “Please, Lord, now send the message by whomever You will.”

Then the anger of the LORD burned against Moses, and He said, “Is there not your brother Aaron the Levite?  I know that he speaks fluently.  And moreover, behold, he is coming out to meet you;  when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.  You are to speak to him and put the words in his mouth;  and I, even I, will be with your mouth and his mouth, and I will teach you what you are to do.  Moreover, he shall speak for you to the people;  and he will be as a mouth for you and you will be as God to him.  You shall take in your hand this staff, with which you shall perform the signs.”  Exodus 4:10-17.


God will accomplish all His good pleasure.  God has spoken;  truly He will bring it to pass.  God has planned it, surely He will do it.  

“For the LORD will not abandon His people,
Nor will He forsake His inheritance.” Psalm 94:14.

“30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
And his tongue speaks justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
His steps do not slip.” Psalm 37:30-31.

The LORD will accomplish what concerns me;
Your lovingkindness, O LORD, is everlasting;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.” Psalm 138:8.

“But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say;  for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say.  For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.”  Matthew 10:19-20.

“9 “Remember the former things long past,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, ‘My purpose will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure
11 Calling a bird of prey from the east,
The man of My purpose from a far country.
Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass.
I have planned it, surely I will do it
.” Isaiah 46:9-11.
