Today's Inspiration: If the ministry that condemns men is glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness. 2 Corinthians 3:10. Many a time we have to make right choices in life.
Moses faced a choice between the world and the city whose builder and maker was God. Though he was familiar with gods in Egypt he knew that only Yahweh the God of his true parents was the true God. His eyes of faith caused him to choose Yahweh so as to not to lose the person of God, the promises of God and the people of God. It was not the choice between his adoptive mother and his birth mother but a choice of a true and living God. Moses chose the will of God. 1 John 2:17. He who does the will of God lives forever. Moses' choice was a kingdom choice. Matthew 6:33.
Moses fled from Egypt not because he was fear driven but faith driven. Moses had a sense of God's call upon his life. He left recognizing that it was not the right time to serve God. He needs to be trained God's way of shepherding and deliverance skill based on reliance upon God more than by his own talents and skill. He has to learn how to survive in the desert. All his forty years of his life was learning about leadership and government from the inside. He must learn the ways of the sheep and how to lead and care for them.
The messages of Moses' life is that true faith has staying power. Faith does not quit when we are placed on the back side of the desert. Faith didn't bail us out when suffering comes. Faith sees the reality of God. Moses' focus was more of the invisible King of the universe more than the visible King of Egypt more than the wealth of Egypt he could inherit. Faith relies on His word.
Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him by our faith and our testimony of the Messiah. 2 Corinthians 2:14. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. V15.
Prayer: Lord I chose to do your will that I may abide with you forever in total commitment. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
