Glad in his heart

Refer to Exodus 4:10-17

When Moses didn’t want to do what the Lord asked of him and made excuses, and even said, send someone else. The Lord said that your brother Aaron, will speak for you. And He said that when he will see you, he will be glad in his heart.

It’s really interesting, because it seems that Moses wasn’t too excited about the request from God, and I don’t know if I would have said anything differently, have the excitement that he was lacking, or be up for that challenge. But Aaron on the other hand, and I might be looking too much in to it and probably am, but since Aaron not only would be glad but it mentions that he would be glad in his heart. Which make me think it would be really genuine. We can say that he would be glad because he would see Moses, and that would be the only reason, but I think there is more to it. I believe the Bible shows us that Aaron would be genuinely happy to be part of God’s plan.

So my question is, when opportunity arises, do we find excuses or “valid reasons” why it should be someone else and/or maybe next time and not now? Or do we find that joy in our heart to be part of it, and thank God that He allowed us, and gave us this precious gift of grace to be part of his eternal plan.
