You won't be required to do what you aren't capable of doing. However, sometimes you're called to do what you think you can't do. Moses thought the people wouldn't listen to him and that he was insignificant and asked the Lord how. The Lord asked him a question in response. "What do you have in your hand?" He then successfully led millions of people to freedom with the rod that was in his hand. And God will do the same with you. You do have what it takes. There are no excuses. God has given you everything you need to be fruitful in this life and the next.
When faced with another problem or another battle, the temptation is to take the victim mentality even if you've won the previous battles and think you have a setback. If your self-talk sounds something like, "Just when things were going good, this had to happen." Or, "Why does this always happen to me?" Then you've got to shake yourself loose from the grip of self-pity.
We've all jumped to conclusions. We see something, hear something, or imagine something because we saw nothing and heard nothing. Relying on senses alone will lead to a conclusion that is just as imagined.

Doesn't everyone want to know what to do? Yet, there is a second and equally powerful need. To know when to do it. Former chairman of Chrysler, Lee Iacocca, once said, "Even the correct decision is wrong when it was taken too late."
What does real surrender look like? Surrender doesn't mean laying down or throwing up your arms in defeat. Surrendering means wrestling.
Regardless of the state of a man, God is just. In Exodus, He did not demand that Pharoah worship Him, nor those who lived in Egypt. His command to Pharaoh was simply to allow His people the freedom to do so. He knew at the end that Pharoah would allow them to go and do as He commanded. Still, because He is just, He allowed Pharoah to let them go and worship Him before any judgment would be pronounced against the Egyptian king personally, his land, or his people. God is so good that He gave this defiant, earthly king the ability not to do battle with the King of Kings. And in His mercy, He still gives this ability to the kings, presidents, and officials of today. God is not slow in His deliverance, folks. He is deliberate. And He will always win. Our part is to continue to proclaim the message during the waiting.
Christians everywhere are trying to determine what is right and what is not. Our government and media as a whole are crying "foul" against Christians who say anything contrary to their agenda.
