The Call of God was clear, concise and unmistakable. Moses the Hebrew prince, turned fugitive was being prepared by God to liberate a nation and then relocate them to an occupied but beautiful land that he had prepared and promised them. For Moses, this was a mind numbing overwhelming call to duty. How could he a lowly shepherd, lead a nation to its glorious liberation.
To God, Moses was the perfect choice. He was once brash and entitled—but now he was a humble and grateful leader that was content to take on the day that lay before hm. Clearly, Moses was the least expected choice. But as God is want to do, he selected the least lokely leader so that the leader would follow and seek God’s leadership.
In our journey, we are forever in the same position. God calls us to do that for which we are perfectly prepared for. Rarely are we the world’s choice for the likely candidate—but, as we humbly follow his lead, we find that his work in our lives has uniquely made us the right person for the call. It is critical that we listen and never shy away from God’s call. We need to see the world from his perspective and trust him to use us as he see fots. Then, we need to give him the glory for the plan he executes—don’t fear, God will prepare and protect us as we follow him and complete the journey he sets before us!
God Bless You
But the Lord said: I have witnessed the affliction of my people in Egypt and have heard their cry against their taskmasters, so I know well what they are suffering. 8 Therefore I have come down[e] to rescue them from the power of the Egyptians and lead them up from that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey, the country of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Girgashites, the Hivites and the Jebusites. 9 Now indeed the outcry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen how the Egyptians are oppressing them. 10 Now, go! I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt.
