Then Moses went back to the Lord and protested, “Why have you brought all this trouble on your own people, Lord? Why did you send me? Ever since I came to Pharaoh as your spokesman, he has been even more brutal to your people. And you have done nothing to rescue them!” Exodus 5:22-23 NLT
Moses was not happy. He felt that since God chose him to go to Pharaoh, it would mean an immediate change in their situation. That did not happen. So many times when things are difficult and you think the end is in sight, things get worst. These people have been enslaved and they cried out to God. He sent a deliverer but instead of the circumstances getting better, they got worst. This is the challenge of leadership. What do you do when you know God sent you and the situation seems to be in disagreement with your actions?
The situation brought conflict in Moses’ life. He was having difficulty trusting God. When Paul wrote, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” In 2 Corinthians 5:7, he was thinking about these types of situations. Humans, use their senses to navigate the world. However, when God speaks into your situation, you cannot use your senses to evaluate what God is doing. Moses used his eyes to look at the people in their affliction instead of looking at God who has the power to bring change in the situation. In the midst of your calamity, trust in God. He always has a plan. There are times He leaves you in the difficultly to bring change in you. Other times, He changes the situation around you. His plan is best.
Thought for Today: Don’t focus on your situation, place your confidence in God.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
