Exodus 4:1-5:21

A couple of days back, to be precise, yesterday (my how time flies), I mentioned that I thought Moses’ reluctance to be sent by God wasn’t based on his Public Speaking talent or lack there of, but on the knowledge that he had committed a crime, he was a murderer. Guilt has a way of always sitting in the back our minds and coloring all our reasons we disguise as excuses, hmmm.

I have taken note of how many people, myself included, don’t really ask the question or state the true problem but the issue is couched in terms of, “I know somebody who …” or, we play ring-a-round-the-rosy in our attempt to avoid the true problem or question and hid behind our “stuff.” God has not of that and all though He doesn’t come right out and say what Moses’ issues are (Moses would probably deny them), He does not let Moses escape from His purpose. Think God is still doing that today?

I think we in the Western Cultures escape into new technologies, cell phones, blackberries, the got to stay in touch stuff, as an attempt to drown out the calling, the purpose God has assigned to each and every individual. We create our own ministries (our vocations/employment/careers) to run from our assigned ministry. I’m using ministry here in terms of service to the greater population. Everyone ministers in some way, even if that ministry is dedicated to serve evil it still is a ministry, a service to the fleshly nature or dedicated to the spiritual. “God I don’t want to do that so I’ll do this instead.”

Grace and peace,

It blows my mind, I know who and what I am. And yet, the GREAT I AM only wants me to come to him. He is real and accessible. He is the Lord of all creation, maker of heaven and earth. How humbling and powerful to know I AM loves us...completely and permanently! He is the theme of my praise 🎶

Comments/Q.O.T.D: I really love Liz Curtis Higgs book, Bad Girls and Really Bad Girls of the Bible. These are about God redeeming ones in sin, all kinds of sin, even sexual sin. I have seen some in sexual sin, enslaved by it. Miserable and going from one to another-its sad- but the same people. I've seen them find their forever love. Sexual sin is worse now than ever-young lil 10, 11 yr olds are aware of such perverse acts and talks that I wasn't aware of at their age!
