Afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let My people go, that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.’ ” And Pharaoh said, “Who is the Lord , that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go.” Exodus 5:1-2 NKJV
God had been preparing Moses for his assignment. Truth be told, Moses was not happy when God called him but he decided to stay on the job. So now he had the task of going before Pharaoh to deliver the message from God. He grew up in Pharaoh’s house so he knew what to expect from him. I tried to put myself in Moses’ shoes at this point in his life. I believe there was fear of the unknown. You had to go into the office of the leader of the land and tell him something he didn’t want to hear. There is usually no preparation for that.
Sometimes, your assignments could be just like that. You have to do something you don’t want to do. What do you do when your assignment takes you to places you don’t want to go and you are required speak to people you don’t want to speak to? You acknowledge the Lord of your mission and the Lord of the mission will direct your path. At the end of the day, God’s will fulfill His purpose So trust God with the unknown; take the example from Moses’ life and do it anyway.
Thought for Today: God gives strength when the assignment is difficult
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
