chronological day 33 :)

Please Exodus 4:18-31, Exodus 5-6, and Exodus 7:1-13.  Moses is my favorite – even though the text is probably familiar, fight the urge to “skim” – take in every word!

God said to Moses in Midian: “Go. Return to Egypt. All the men who wanted to kill you are dead.” So Moses took his wife and sons and put them on a donkey for the return trip to Egypt. He had a firm grip on the staff of God. (Exodus 4:19-20 MSG)

And so it begins – we’ll see a pattern develop throughout Moses’ life: God gives direction, and Moses obeys (mostly).  I love this phrase: “he had a firm grip on the staff of God”. A shepherd’s staff lengthens the shepherd’s reach, and can offer guidance/direction when needed.  Moses will need both of these functions as he leads the people out of Egypt.  We need God’s direction in our lives today as well.

Even when things don’t look like they were going in Moses’ favor, he still obeyed the Lord. His ways are higher than ours – we must trust Him!

One thought on “chronological day 33 :)

  1. Ralph Madrigal says:

    Exodus 6:3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as El- Shaddia (GOD almighty), but I did not reveal my name, Yahweh to them.
    The above passage explains to me that there are many names we give the lord and in one form or another he will reveal himself to us. Whether by name or dream or calling he will find us if we seek him.
