I have been studying toe book of Exodus and It has been such a blessing in my life. I have read Exodus before, but God’s Word is so rich, each time we read it He reveals new truths. Moses wrote the book of Exodus to show the fulfillment of God’s covenant to Abraham in Genesis.
That promise was made at least 600 years earlier!! What a huge blessing of hope that is to us. No matter how long it may take, God always remembers His promises to us and will bring them to fruition in His due season.
Another blessing tidbit is that Moses somehow knew He was to be God’s deliverer to the children long before the burning bush. In fact in his speech in Acts 7 Stephen said, “When Moses was forty years old, he decided to visit his own people, the Israelites. 24 He saw one of them being mistreated by an Egyptian, so he went to his defense and avenged him by killing the Egyptian.” 25 Moses thought that his own people would realize that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not.
It is interesting to note God’s plan was to use Moses to deliver His people. But after this event, Because Moses tried to accomplish God’s will in his strength, God allowed Moses to have to run for his life. He fled to Midian and God used the next 40 years to empty Moses of Moses.
Moses definitely had a call on his life, but he wasn’t ready for that call. He needed to be in a place of separation where God could strip him of his own strength and teach him to use God’s strength to accomplish God’s Will.
God had promised to give the children of Abraham the land of Canaan for an everlasting possession, to multiply Abraham’s seed, and at the end of a 400 period of suffering God would bring the children of Israel back to Canaan and the Egyptians would pay them back with great blessings of wealth. This was God’s promise and God would accomplish it. When God places a call on your life always remember it is to bring glory to God. Your call is not about you, but God. God may have to take you to the place of stripping, suffering and separation, but at the end of the day it will be for your good and His glory.
