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 NIV)
Sometimes, time alone with God (TAWG) just isn’t enough to get the job done. You still walk away confused, struggling, or simply afraid to move forward with what God is calling you to do. That’s when we need the help of other people. We need to make it real…together.
But Moses said, "Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else." Then the LORD's anger burned against Moses and he said, "What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you. You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. (Exodus 4:13-16 NIV)
We really are better together. It’s good to remember that Jesus sent out his twelve in pairs – two by two. He even sent out seventy two in the same way – two by two. Moses was given Aaron as a ministry partner. Moses would do his part. Aaron would do his part. Aaron would do most of the speaking. Moses would perform the signs. They were better together.
But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it." (Exodus 4:17 NIV)
This is why we have small group Bible studies. This is why we have accountability partners. This is why we have ministry partners. We don’t just walk with God. We walk together with God. That’s because we know that we’re better together.
How about you? Are you walking together with God? Who are you together with on this walk? Do you study God’s word together with others? Do you have anyone who holds you accountable to walking with God? Do you have any ministry partners? Are you better together?
