10 Then Moses said to the Lord, “O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”
We can come up with a hundred and one excuses why God can’t use us, but none of them amount to anything. God didn’t create us to be ineffective for Him. He created us for a purpose and just as He said to Moses, He would say to us, “I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
23 So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me. But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn.” ’”
We are going to see that Pharaoh refuses to let the Israelites go, and yet even though God said he would kill his first born if he refused to obey, God waited and gave Pharaoh ample opportunities to obey. This is the way that God is with us, He is so patient, giving us every opportunity to do what he tells us to do. Our hearts can be so hard, we must carefully guard ourselves from this.
22 So Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Lord, why have You brought trouble on this people? Why is it You have sent me?

It is during these impatient times, that we must consider the faithfulness of our God to bring to pass that which He said He would. We must hold fast to His word!
7 I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
I am so incredibly grateful that I belong to Him!

Moses and Aaron were Levites and therefore, as we will see, we’re part of the priesthood. All of the priests among the Israelites were Levites.
