Devotion 3-18-24, Exodus 3:11- "But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?” Moses is an interesting character. He was born in a time when male Hebrew babies were to be killed at birth. He was nurtured for 3 months and then launched in a tiny ark into the the hippopotamus infested Nile. Hippos are carnivores; he would have been a tiny morsel to them. Pharaoh's daughter spotted baby Moses. He was rescued from the water and raised in Pharaoh's courts as her son. But Moses knew if his Hebrew roots. As an adult, he chose to visit his people only to end up killing an Egyptian and fleeing for his life. If things have not worked out for you as anticipated, you can relate to Moses. Moses spent 40 years in Midian learning humility by caring for sheep, the most despised of Egyptian livestock. It was then that God appeared to him. Only when he was humble, pliable, and prepared to listen did God talk to Moses. Has God talked to you? He routinely speaks through His word. Do you listen? Moses had a sense he was to help his people; but it was only much later that God used him for that purpose. We may have a sense that God wishes to use us in a particular way. But we must not leap out to do it without time spent listening to and obeying God. Moses was God's man for the job; but God's timing was everything. By the time God was ready, bold Moses was now hesitant Moses. But God enabled him to do what was needed to be done. Humility before God was a prerequisite to usefulness with God. "I Am" will call you and use you as you prepare your heart to listen and obey. Ephesians 4:4-6- "There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all."
