Exodus Ch. 2 & 3

Updated: Mar 6

We invite You Holy Spirit into this moment, may You renew our minds today, speak to us and open up the eyes of our understanding as we share Your Word In the Name of Jesus.

This post is a continuation of chapter 2 and a brief introduction of chapter 3. So just a recap, the previous post ended when Moses was adopted and raised by Pharaoh's daughter (Acts 7:21). During this time, Moses was well learned concerning the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful both in speech and in action (Acts 7:22).

Despite growing up in the comfort of the Egyptian royals, Moses refused to be affiliated with them and always had a heart to save and rescue his people. However, the Hebrew people did not exactly perceive him in the same manner. For example, In Exodus 2:11-13 when Moses was 40 years old, he rescued one of the Hebrews who was attacked by an Egyptian soldier. Unfortunately, he also killed and buried the Egyptian soldier.

On another occasion and in an attempt to be the "peacemaker" between two Hebrew men who were fighting, the events did not turn out as expected. One of the men turned to Moses and said, "Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?" So Moses feared and said, "Surely this thing is known!" (Exodus 2:14). Eventually Moses had to flee Egypt because Pharaoh found out about this and planned to kill him (Exodus 2:15).

Moses fled to Midian, and there we still see his heart to stand up for the people. That is, he rescued the daughters of Reuel when they faced attacks as they drew water for their father's flock. Reuel, also known as Jethro was a priest of Midian (Exodus 2:16). As a way to thank Moses for his kindness, Jethro invited him to live in his house and eventually gave him one of his daughters, Zipporah, to be his wife (Exodus 2:21).

On the other hand, the children of Israel continued to cry out to God because of their bondage in Egypt and He remembered His covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Exodus 2:24).

CHAPTER 3: This chapter starts off with Moses in the field, tending his father-in-law's flock when the LORD appears to him in a burning bush that was burning but not consumed in order to catch Moses' attention (Exodus 3:3). The LORD then proceeds to tell Moses that this is holy ground and instructs him to take off his sandals (Exodus 3:5). At that moment, God revealed Himself to him and says, "I am the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." (Exodus 3:6). I find in the book of Exodus that God frequently introduces and reminds Moses of His character, the GREAT I AM.

I believe this is so because it was important for Moses to understand God's nature and character to better equip him for his assignment to deliver the Israelites from bondage. You cannot conquer a war without the revelation and understanding of the God you are serving, the magnitude of His power in your life and the tools He has equipped you with to conquer the war. As a believer, one of your biggest weapon/tool lies in the power and authority that is in the Name of Jesus.

Philippians 2:9-11 says to us, "Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

AMEN. Thank you LORD.
