Dr. Joye Baker has taught and discipled women in the church for more than thirty years. Her heart's passion is to encourage women in their walk with the Lord and share the love and hope that God alone can give. Dr. Baker currently serves as an adjunct professor at DTS training and equipping women for ministry. Take a few minutes to meditate on Exodus 4:10-17 and then listen in to hear where God led Joye. Some highlights from our conversation: How the Lord reminded Joye that when he calls, he will equip. We talk about the promise Jesus makes to the disciples in Mark 13:11 that says, “do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.” This was the verse I couldn’t remember. We talk about why being surrendered to God’s will is essential to a vibrant walk with the Lord. Fianlly, Joye gives sage advice on how to handle transitions and disruptions in life.

I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” 11 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? 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” 13 But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.” 14 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. 15 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. 16 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. 17 But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.
