What’s Your Excuse?

We often hear inner voices telling us we are not good enough, or smart enough…and people don’t like us! Moses used those excuses at the burning bush to tell God that he should not and could not deliver the Hebrew slaves from Egypt. The five excuses Moses used are the same excuses we have in our heads today. This series is about the excuses we make and God’s response to those excuses.

By Dave Warner | November 13, 2022

This final excuse of Moses was the real reason Moses tried to decline God’s direction to free the Hebrew slaves: I don’t want to? We tend to not give the real reason for not doing God’s will, we invent lots of other excuses, but the real reason is that we don’t want to.

What’s Your Excuse? I Don’t Speak Well

What’s Your Excuse? I Am Not Enough

By Dave Warner | October 9, 2022

Moses gave God five excuses as to why he could not and should not go deliver the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt. Reggie Byrd takes us through the first excuse where Moses asks, “Who am I?” revealing his predilection towards feeling Imposter Syndrome. But God has a response to Moses and tells him that He…

What’s Your Excuse? An Introduction to Moses

By Dave Warner | October 2, 2022

Moses spent 80 years discovering who he was but it wasn’t until an encounter with a burning bush that he finally (and begrudgingly) came into his own being. Moses’ excuses are the same excuses we use today, but often we don’t say them out loud, we just hear them internally, as lies that keep us…
