There, exiled on the backside of the desert, Moses saw a burning bush that was not consumed, and his dream was rekindled. There are three major principles revealed in this story that, when applied in your life, will rekindle the fire of your own dreams.
The first step is: Reject reasons for remaining where you are. Moses had a multitude of reasons why he couldn’t fulfill his dream.
First, he argued, “Who am I?”: "And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?" (Exodus 3:11).
Like Moses, many of us struggle with past failures or a lack of abilities. God’s answer to Moses was, “It is not who you are that is important, but who I am!” It is not who you are that will advance your ministry, but who He is! You must act on the basis of who He is, not who you are.
Then Moses said, “I don’t have the authority. Who will I say sent me?" (Exodus 3:13). God’s answer to Moses was, “Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, ‘I AM hath
sent me unto you’” (Exodus 3:14). "I AM" has sent you also! God has given you authority over all the power of the enemy: "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you" (Luke 10:19). You have the power and authority of God to walk into your destiny and fulfill it.
Next, Moses objected, “What if they don’t believe me?" (Exodus 4:1). God’s answer to this objection was, “What is in your hand?” (Exodus 4:2). In Moses’ hand was a rod that represented God’s power. Later on, this same rod was thrown down before Pharaoh and miracles happened, it was stretched over the Red Sea and the waters parted, and it brought forth water from a rock for a thirsty multitude. God is asking you the same question today: “What is in your hand?” You have talents, abilities, gifts, and skills that God can use if you will simply pick them up and begin to use them again: “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” (Romans 11:29).
Then Moses questioned, “What shall I say?” God responded, “I will be your mouth and
teach you what you should say” (Exodus 4:12). God’s Word to you today is, “The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach...” (Romans 10:8).
In order to rekindle his dream, Moses had to eliminate all excuses. If you are to fulfill your divine destiny, you must do the same. Every reason why you “can’t” do it must go. You must eliminate every objection in the name of Jesus!
