This is the second installment of a series I still haven’t finished. It pictures Jesus in the life of the men God used to deliver the nation of Israel and humanity itself from the time of Noah through the kingship of David. Along the way we also learn some valuable life lessons. In this podcast I talk aboutMoses.
In Exodus 3:7-10 God tells Moses what He wants him to do. Have you ever been asked to do something you didn’t think you could? Have you ever felt that what God wants from you is more than you can handle? Did you know that Moses felt that way too? When God spoke to him from the burning bush, Moses had a whole list of reasons why he wasn’t the man for the job. Yet God chose him anyway and wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.
What made Moses special? Why did God choose an outcast, hot-tempered murderer who couldn’t speak well and lacked confidence to be the deliverer of Israel? If Moses had anything at all to do with it I think we can find some reasons why, and we’ll talk about them. But the indisputable fact is that God chose Moses. That makes everything else secondary.
I want you to see that if you belong to God, he has already chosen you! It may not be for such a grand task, though we should remember that God doesn’t measure things the way we do. Great will your reward in Heaven be if you will submit to Him and let Him work through you.
