who became a Christian with the assumption that
I was being placed on His Royal Advisory Board.
and I take off running at full steam,
See, though, I know I am not alone. I am not ratting out any of your secrets…instead I have an entire Book filled with the mistakes of His chosen to pull from. And while I never noticed this bit of information until I read it from Oswald Chamber‘s “My Utmost For His Highest” today…I was delighted to see that Moses was one like me.
Moses knew early on that God had whispered into his heart the passion of “Go get Me My peeps outta Egypt, I am gonna free them…” (…Bina International Version…) and he reacted to it.
Sadly, his reaction was one of extreme violence, actually killing someone and burying the body in the sand….a big whoopsie that he tried to hide from the One who set him afire with love for the Israelite people in the first place.
What followed that was a time spent in the desert…hiding…tending sheep, not people…as he waited for God’s passionate desire for relationship to ignite a burning, yet never consumed bush as a symbol of a defined calling.
What I realize is that He was 100% right in his knowledge that God was calling him into service on His love’s behalf…but he was 100% wrong in his delivery, racing forward to handle things on his own terms.
What I wonder is:
Did the desire and urgency for those people ever waiver during that time away from them?
Did the heavy guilt over his reaction’s actions ever ease up during his desert stay?
When God fills me full of His passion, He does it with a reason.
My job, in the moments when I just can’t seem to understand the why’s and how come’s of a God-prompted situation? …most simply worded:
Looking up as always…
