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,

Good read from Moses. Clearly this is a setup for him to leave and cleave and come back to the fold and rise up to the Moses he was meant to be. Jesus always sets people straight and taxes were paid to keep the peace and all in Hos timing. Also, Psalm does have many similarities to the Passion week and the cross and Christ. Also, proverbs talks about wisdom..I deflect on Christ and his willingness to go.to the cross many times. Especially during songs and at church. So sacred that is why it is important to go to church!

The crucifixion and passion of Christ come up frequently when I pray for those in travail. The Lord said on the Cross " IT IS FINISHED" . HE has overcome All this through HIS shed blood, death and Resurrection. Look to Him, our Healer, Our Provider, our Everything. Our home is not here, it is with Christ for eternity. I/We need to work on our Trust in Him alone.

I am meditating his passion and resurrection every day of the year! we need to meditate his passion and resurrection every year so that we know God is the I am. the verse that stand out to me is when Moses saw the bush was burning with fire and yet it was not burning.
