Something to Ponder

What did you struggle with the most this week? What did you learn about yourself this week?

— STOP HERE —

Moses

In the example of Moses we see a man chosen by God to bring redemption to His people after a period of being enslaved in Egypt. Moses’ life can be broken down into 3, 40 year sections.

The First 40 years – Moses is saved as a baby, and raised under Pharaohs roof, with all the benefits of health, wealth, and education. In Ex chapter 1 – we see Moses is a man of action – with a bit of a hot temper (he kills the slave driver). Sometimes we rightly respond to injustice, with the wrong solution.

God’s timing – not ours!

I like the stmt on page 13 of our books:

“Often the things we have – gifts, talents, strength, or abilities – are not useful to God until we give Him possession of them”.

In the next 40 years we see Moses hide out in the mountains where he works as a shepherd, marries and has a child.

What do you imagine that he would have learned while being a shepherd?

In the last 40 years, God calls out to Moses from a burning bush. He calls Moses to go back to Egypt, & to lead God’s people out of slavery. God gives him instructions about what will happen, and what Moses should do. In his response we see some humility, and insecurity.. He pleads for help and God says that his brother Aaron will help.

In this 3rd stage of his life, Moses practiced being an effective leader, he was totally dependent on the grace of God. God gives Moses the 10 commandments, the law, instructions about how to build the Tabernacle, and continues to instruct him, while assuring him of His presence. Moses appeals to God many times on behalf of the Israelites, he meets with God regularly, face to face.

Our book calls this season ‘Practicing the presence of God’.

And yet – the consequence of sin will still be evident for Moses and the Promise Land.

Here are some sections to consider:

After Moses left with his family, on the journey: Read Ex 4:24-26 What is happening here?
What was the significance of the plagues and how they related to the Egyptian culture at the time?
What is the purpose of the Tabernacle?
What does it mean that God met with Moses ‘face to face’? Ex 33:11
At the top of page 116 in our books – what is the description of Faith?

What was your ‘wow’ take away for this weeks lesson.

The Lord is near to all; to all who call on him in truth.

PSALM 145:18

Starting today, I will resolve to ....

ForNext Week

SHARE, PRAYER, CARE

THAT'S IT FOR NOW! SEE YOU HERE AGAIN NEXT WEEK!

Love you gals... Jennie

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24-25

ABOUT THIS CLASS: I love hearing other people’s stories of how they came to know Jesus. Through this study we will be looking at several of the Men throughout the Old Testament including Noah, Abraham, Jacob & Moses, just to name a few. We will discover just how they came into fellowship with God, what was happening in the time that they lived, and how God used them to grow His Kingdom by pointing the way to Jesus. I am excited to dig into the Old Testament, while learning the relevance it still has today in our walk with God.
