So Moses and Aaron did just as the Lord had commanded them. Exodus 7:6 NLT
Many times in life, people get assigned to projects that some believe lie outside of their skill set. When God called Moses, he was minding his own business, tending sheep in the desert. People use their own motives and criteria when they assign others to projects. God, the creator, who sees and knows all, chooses the most unlikely people for His special tasks. It’s quite possible many felt that Moses was not the ideal candidate, to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt because he lived in Pharaoh’s palace. It’s also quite possible, that God allowed Moses to live in the Pharaoh’s palace, so he could return and lead the people out of slavery.
Now God called Moses, but it was not a solo assignment. When God gave the overview of this part of the mission, there was room for Aaron. God’s business is bigger than any one person. His directions were clear. “Tell Aaron everything I command you, and Aaron must command Pharaoh to let the people of Israel leave his country.” Exodus 7:2.There is an order in the plan; first God spoke to Moses then Moses was responsible to share the information with Aaron. They needed to work together to get the results God desired. It was important for each man to do his part, because they were both important components of God’s plan.
God provided some more information and Moses and Aaron obeyed every detail of God’s plan. They did exactly what God commanded them to do. When you are on a mission with a plan, you have to stay true to that plan to get the desired results. It’s like baking a cake; if you want to get the same results every time, you have to keep everything consistent. If you want to experience success, you have to follow God’s plan.
Thought for Today: Friend, follow God’s commands.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
