FAITH CAPSULE: In the life of all, God is absolutely in control to allow or disallow.
The birth of Moses at the appointed time of God made it impossible for the law of Pharaoh to kill male born. Moses escaped death at birth; he later turned out to be a murder that has to run from the palace where he was raised. Moses’ effort to run from Pharaoh’s reach after the killing of an Egyptian on behalf of his Hebrew brother brought him to Midian. Nothing happens by accident.
God alone is in a position to allow and disallow all that happens in the life of man. God is in absolute control either we like it or not. For example, He alone allowed Job’s challenges when Satan asked for Job. God responded to Satan, “And the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your hand, but spare his life.” So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD, and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.” (Job 2:6-7)
In the life of all, God is absolutely in control to allow or disallow.
In Moses’ life, all that happened prepared him for where he was going. In order for Moses to become a shepherd in the hand of God, he has to be trained as a shepherd. Where you are going, you do not know, you only know about where you are now. Are you paying attention to God? When Moses was living in the palace, he would not have imagined becoming a shepherd. Nevertheless, he ended up becoming a shepherd in the hand of God. To be used by God is a great attainment that cannot be compared or traded for anything. You know who you believe, and that is enough to encourage you to stand firm in whatever condition or situation you encounter.
If Moses missed his training, he probably would have been out of place and miss the calling upon his life.
When he was received by the priest of Midian, he did not allow pride or anger to get in the way of God’s plan for his life.
The character was in place in the life of Moses. It is written, “Then Moses was content to live with the man, and he gave Zipporah his daughter to Moses.” (Exodus 2:21) Contentment is what made the difference in the life of Moses. Life from the palace to tent could never have been an easy transition, but he was contented. Do you have God in your life? If you do, it is a good thing to ask Him to impact you with the spirit of contentment. 1Timothy 6:6 buttress the importance of contentment stating; “Now godliness and contentment is a great gain.” With contentment, Moses was in place to engage the calling upon his life.
Prayer for today: Ask God to impact you with strength and wisdom not to miss out His plan for your life.
