So this morning God took me to exodus 4:19 (I had to read the whole thing for context) but verse 19 was my focal point!
God says to Moses, return back to Eygpt the people who are trying to kill you are dead, meanwhile, it’s has been so many years and Moses is not certain for sure because the current Pharaoh knows full well what Moses did, and at this point Moses has no physical defence!!
The Lord carries on to say, I will harden pharaohs heart when you speak to him, I will make the process difficult, so it won’t be easy, I will instruct you to say particular things to pharaoh that won’t be so pretty, such as his first born son will be killed because of his disobedience!! Now can you imagine Moses, already wanted in Eygpt, and God sends him on this journey, with all the risks it involves, would you go?
This morning after reading this scripture I am reminded that doing Gods work requires BOLDNESS, and no FEAR! I am also reminded that God always has a plan, and greatness never comes easy! In order for us to conquer all, we must be ready to take the risks involved, and go all out, we must be ready to be in uncomfortable positions, and we must be able to have faith that He will see us through even when it gets difficult!!!
I believe Moses needed to face pharaoh so that he would have the courage to face the children of Israel in the wilderness, and to be able to fight other battles that came their way, because He had seen God come through for them first in a place where he had the greatest fear, so He knew nothing was impossible fo God!!! Are you ready to face your fears today??
