Exodus 2:11-3:22

I will probably come back to Mike question/thought of the day this evening, but know I need to address something I’ve just seen in the text, two things, that I’ve never considered before.

Moses, knowing he was adopted, seeing the life he had led as an adopted son of Pharaoh’s daughter, and seeing the life of his biological people, chose to identify with slaves although he had not completely thrown off the comforts of being raised in the household of Pharaoh. Got used his act of murder to begin the removal of his identification to the palace and his privilege, He kicked him out of the “boat.” Moses also must have understood or knew his purpose as Israel’s deliver; however, he didn’t have a clue on how that was to be achieved.

I think many of us have some inkling, some vision, of what our purpose is; however, because we don’t know how that is to be fulfilled, we go off and do our own thing and mess up royally. We then don’t set goals (see Jan. 24th) because we are afraid to mess up again. Based on Moses’ story we see that God can have us go at least forty years to get the Egypt out of us although we are out of Egypt.

I also now think that Moses’ reluctance to go back to Egypt and lead his people out was not based on some self-perceived speech impediment, but based on his knowledge that he was a murderer. Even after forty years, people have long memories and I’m sure if someone in the palace committed murder, even if the people around at the time die off, the records would clearly record that even. After all inquiring minds want to know. People love to see the might fall. Hmmm!

Grace and peace,
Ramona

I probably don't meditate on Jesus life, death, burial as much as I should. However, I do relate lots of our bible stories at school to my students in relation to what God's Son has done for us..and how He died and was brought to life..we were just talking about His Temple..and the temples that we are aware of in the bible. The temple that David's son Solomon made, then it got restored, and we have the restored temple, and even when Jesus was talking to His disciples and told the people of that day. You want to see a miracle, tear this temple down and in three days it will be restored and He is alive and well, seated at the right hand of God the Father, He left His Spirit here with us as the Temple within us, of the Living God! Praise God..But yes, Always be thankful of all He has done for US. Bless His Holy Name!

Not a day goes by that I dont think about Jesus suffering on the cross. I believe we come to a point where we know suffering is abpart of the Christian walk
And we need to accept then we are on the right path. To think how God had to sacrifice his son for us. He had to turn his back on him. He made the ultimate sacrifice for us I'm so humbled when I think of this. That he would do that for me. Even one he would have come to Save.
I'm So thankful for his word He left for us to mediate on every day. It strengthens me daily. Thankyou Mike for challenging us with questions to ask ourselves!
I think of my sweet mother who met our Jesus a few months ago. Her spirit is alive within me. I can feel her. I Parallel this to our Heavenly Father as His spirit Is with us. He walks among us. I can feel him! He is alive. Jesus wants each of us to come before him
As he walks among us every day! Look for him!
