End Time Heroes (Church Camp message-Session 2)

You are a hero. Yes, you!

God don’t always choose the smartest, tallest, or strongest. Sometimes He chose people who were rejected by men.

Moses was once a prince but when God called him, he was just a shepherd.

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. (Exodus 3:1)

1- My wilderness, His calling.

When we speak of wilderness, we’ll though of Israelites wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. But that’s just one of the wilderness. Sometimes, wilderness occurs unexpectedly. You may be now in a session of wilderness, but you didn’t plan for it. Don’t try to escape or curse wilderness. Wait on the Lord and do what you can in the wilderness.

2- My fear, His weapon.

Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”.  “A staff,” he replied. The Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it. Then the Lord said to him, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail.” So Moses reached out and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a staff in his hand. (Exodus 4:2-4)

Moses ran away when his staff turned into a snake, which means he was scared! But what God did next will makes you think “What!!!” God ask Moses to pick it up. What would you do if God asked you go after your fear?

Your strength is in the things that you’d overcome!

What is your fear? What are you running away from God?

Stop running.

3- My weakness, His voice.

The way God look at our weaknesses is not the same way we look at our weaknesses. We see shame, God sees potential. When Moses was called to speak to the Pharoah, he saw himself as inadequate. But God saw his potential, the one that will lead the Israelites out of Egypt.

Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” (Exodus 4:10-12)

We saw this again in the new testament:

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

I used to have this insecurity when it comes to serving God at church. I’m not outspoken, or talented or smart like some other members of the church. I disqualify myself, not God.

Then again, this is how God works. His power and grace is shown in our weaknesses. So that He is at the center of our lives and whatever we do for Him.

You are called. Therefore, you are qualified. Remember this whenever someone tells you are not good enough.

Before I was born the Lord called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name. (Isaiah 49:1)

If the devil reminds you of your past (like maybe the devil remind Moses that he’s a murderer), tell him you’re a new creation. God make us new, He sees us new every single day.

Though today we may enjoy watching superhero movies, you don’t have to wait for someone to be the real hero in this real world. You are already called to be one. You are an end-time hero.
