Task Greater Than the Weight of the Stones

4 So Moses chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the Lord had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands. Exodus 34:4

Here’s something I never considered about Moses until today. He’s 80 years old and he’s carrying stone tablets. We have no idea how large those tablets were but even if they were a minuscule 12 inches by 12 inches and a half-inch thick, that is a very heavy burden to lug up Mt. Sinai. God must have given him extraordinary strength just to carry those pieces of stone while hiking up a mountain.

Yet we don’t hear a single complaint about that burden, do we? His task for the Lord far outweighed the physical weight and burden of the stones.

The application of this principle is fairly straight-forward:

The Lord will not task you with something you will not be able to handle, even if you think you’re not able to handle it right now. He will give you the tools, strength, and will to accomplish it when we seek Him the entire way.
