Living Out His Will - Who Will Be The Leader?


"So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt" (Ex. 3:10).

God has always used special people to carry his message to the people. Have you read the Book of Judges? As His people became obstinate and even rebellious, God chose and prepared a special person (a judge) to get them on the right path again. How about those prophets? The Old Testament is filled with wonderful stories of God intervening through a person that was trained for the task of bringing God's message to His people. The apostles got their training at the feet of Jesus during His ministry, and even Paul received some special insights while away in Arabia.

OK...OK... Where am I going with this? In today's verse, Moses was about to enter God's "College of Knowledge." It was a "fast track" course that may have been entitled, "You Da Man 101." He was the one chosen to take God's words to the most powerful man on earth, and God said to him, "I will be with you" (V12).

It is now time for a moment of reflection....Looking in the mirror if you will....I think that God has a plan for each of us. This plan means for each of His people to be great and special in some way. Each of us has a unique opportunity to make a difference in the Lord's Kingdom here on earth. If we believe this to be true then we've just admitted that God means for us to have an impact for the cause of Christ.

Moses didn't know that God had been preparing him all along. From his biological roots, his mom nursing him (and more than likely teaching him). Learning in the courts of the finest schools of the known world, to even learning to survive in the desert. God was getting him prepared. We are not going to get the "burning bush" or the "rod that turns into a snake," but through the events and lessons of life we are being prepared. Lets all be good students and learn our lessons well. Lets seek out those God-given opportunities to serve Him...To live out His will...

Have a great day....Make a difference....Love mark Phil. 4:11
