He Will Do It


“The one who calls you is faithful, and He will do it.”

(1 Thessalonians 5:24, NIV)


Who wrote the majority of the Bible? The answer may surprise you: Moses. God appeared to Moses in a burning bush and commissioned Moses on a new adventure. God appointed Moses to return to Egypt, confront the Pharaoh, and lead God’s people out of slavery. Forty years prior to his encounter with the Almighty, Moses was a tended his Father-in-Laws sheep. Now he would use that same shepherd staff to lead God’s people to freedom. At the burning bush, Moses stood before the Lord and tried to convince God to pick someone else for the job. He repeatedly argued with God about his new assignment. At one time Moses said “O Lord, I have never been eloquent…I am slow of speech and tongue” (Exodus 4:10, NIV).

The man, who argued with God about his vocabulary and oration skills, subsequently authored five books and one Psalm. Moses penned 125,139 words, the largest volume of words recorded in the Bible. Thus reminding us that God equips those He calls.

While driving the kids to school, I asked “Who do you think wrote the majority of the Bible?” They responded with David, Paul, and Luke. I shared with the kids how cool it was that God used Moses in this way. This was a guy who claimed to not be good with words, yet God provided what Moses needed to get the task done. In the Christian vocabulary, we call that being equipped. God not only equipped Moses, but He proved to be faithful. Soon after I shared this with the children, this verse was read over the airways of the Spirit FM radio station:

“The one who calls you is faithful, and He will do it.”

(1 Thessalonians 5:24, NIV).

The dynamic truth of God equipping the called goes beyond the Old Testament. This truth is for all believers here and now. What is God calling you to do? Have you felt God nudging toward something new? What is the one thing God has laid upon your heart to do, that you haven’t done yet? Are you like Moses, arguing with God?

Whatever God has called you to do, He is faithful, and He will do it!

P.S. In case you are curious who else wrote the majority of the Bible the authors listed as follows:

Moses: 5 books, 1 Psalm; 125,139 words

Ezra: 3 books; 43,618 words

Luke: 2 books; 37,932 words

Jeremiah: 2 books; 35,306 words

Paul: 13 books; 32,408 words

The word count is based on the original languages.
