There’s a phrase that is often repeated, “God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called.”
I thought of this as I read through the Egyptian plagues. Remember, God met Moses on the mountain and called him into service. God met Moses where he was, in other words. Moses balked, however, making excuses for why he was unqualified to be God’s prophet.
God sent Aaron to speak the words that God would speak to Moses. It’s Aaron who speaks to Pharaoh at first. Its Aaron who performs the miracles that bring the first four plagues. Neither he nor Moses do anything for the fifth plague. There’s a shift at the sixth plague. God specifically tells Moses to be His actor and by the eighth plague, we even see dialogue between Pharaoh and Moses.
It’s is almost like God meets Moses, a stuttering, shepherd and gives him a crash course in being His prophet before sending him off into the wilderness as the leader of the people of Israel. That, to me, is amazing.
