Philippians 3:14, NIV: "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."

 

Moses identify 

 

Moses was a Hebrew born into slavery. His mom, who had great faith, put him in a basket in the Nile River and Moses was then rescued by Pharaoh’s daughter. Moses was raised as an Egyptian prince until he discovered his true identity and ran away from Egypt. We catch up in the book of  Exodus chapters 3-4 with Moses in the desert where he has been living as a shepherd with a new family of his own. One day, Moses followed a wandering sheep into the wilderness and came upon a burning bush where God chose to speak to him. In this moment, God placed a great task on Moses’ shoulders: “I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt (Exodus 3:10). This was no easy task that God assigned to Moses. God was asking Moses to confront his brother, the Pharaoh, the most powerful political figure in the region, to set thousands of slaves free, ending a several hundred-year tradition of enslaving the Israelites. Moses, understandably, throws every excuse at God that he can think of. “What if they don’t believe you sent me?” “What if they don’t listen to me?” “What if I’m scared?” “What if I don’t speak well in front of crowds?” Finally, he pleads with God, “Please, send someone else.”

Moses needed to shift from fear to faith, from doubt to peace. The shift occurs in this conversation where God shows Moses that He has gone before him and that He will never abandon him. Moses can have faith that the Lord will provide all that he needs during this journey. It’s not about what Moses CAN’T do; it’s only about what God CAN do.
