Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pay close attention to this. I will make you seem like God to Pharaoh, and your brother, Aaron, will be your prophet. Exodus 7:1 NLT
Just a short while ago, Moses was having difficulty with his assignment. God called Moses but Moses felt that he was inadequate to do what God needed. Moses looked at his abilities and wondered how he could be the man God needed with his background and limitations. Moses didn’t believe that the children of Israel would listen to him and Pharaoh would definitely dismiss him. He failed to understand that God looks for people, who are available to Him and then He would use them with their limitations.
At this time, Moses understood that success on his mission was not through him but through God. He had his mandate; he had to go to Pharaoh. But God told him something strange: God was going to make Moses seem like God to Pharaoh. God was talking about the power that is available to children of God. This is what Joshua discovered as he served God faithfully; first as Moses’ assistant then as the leader. In Joshua 23:10 Joshua said, “Each one of you will put to flight a thousand of the enemy, for the Lord your God fights for you, just as he has promised.”
God was about to do something spectacular! He was going to big-up Moses in Pharaoh’s eyes. In God’s time, He turns both people and circumstances around. When Moses lived in Pharaoh’s palace, he was just a Hebrew child his daughter had compassion on and rescued him from death. Pharaoh could never imagine that this child would become the man God would use to free the Hebrew slave population. What changed? Moses changed his focus; before Moses was focused on himself and his abilities, now Moses was focused on God. When you change your focus, you create an environment for God to show Himself strong in your life by His mighty power. When you are on a mission don’t give up. God can turn things around.
Thought for Today: Friend, don’t look at the situation; look at God’s mighty power.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
