Exodus Ch.3

Praise the name of the LORD who has given us a new day to be here and share His Word, glory to His holy name. We invite the Holy Spirit into this space right now to speak to us, give us revelation and open the eyes of our understanding In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

In Chapter 3, we see the LORD God appearing to Moses in a burning bush. He then proceeds to tell Moses that He has heard the cries of His people and has "...come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey..." (Exodus 3:8). I love this text for many reasons. The first one is when we cry out to the LORD for His help, He is ready and willing to help us especially because we have chosen to put our trust in Him. I also love this Scripture passage because God could not deliver His people without using a man and in this case Moses. Just like Moses, I believe every believer has an assignment that the LORD God would like to use them for as His representative here on earth to deliver His people. It may be in your business, work place, relationships and friendships, your community, family, to mention but a few places where the LORD may require You as His representative to deliver His people.

Jesus in John 14:15-16 says to us, if you love me, you will obey my commandments and I will ask my Father who will give you another Helper (some Bible translations say Advocate) who will never leave you.

This Helper/Advocate is the Holy Spirit who will give you the authority and power to obey the Word of God.

Unlike Moses, Jesus left believers with the Holy Spirit as a representation of God's love that He did not want us to do life alone without His presence. In order to be successful in our respective God ordained assignments, we need to recognize the Holy Spirit and rely on Him for guidance in prayer.

Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:13 re assures us of the spiritual help we have in Christ and says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." This verse is encouraging us to go in the strength we have, not in the strength, talents or abilities that we wish to have in order to carry out God's assignment because the Holy Spirit will meet us exactly where we are at and supply us with the power to do what is required of us. Apostle Paul was writing the above Scripture in prison (Philippians 1:12-13) which shows he fully understood what it meant to rely on the strength of Christ during moments of physical restraint and weakness in the flesh. He did not have to have all the right things in place to fulfill God's call on his life.

My prayer for you and I is that when the LORD calls, may we obey the Word of God and respond with the appropriate actions to go in the strength we have in the moment as the Holy Spirit will supply us with the required strength along the journey In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

In Chapter 3:11-15, we see Moses questioning his ability to meet the nature of assignment that God was sending him to. He asks the LORD God if He had the ability to be able to to deliver the people out of Egypt and God reassures that He would be with him. Moses also asked God if the people would accept his message as true and God re assured him again that the children of Israel and the elders would heed Moses' voice (Exodus 3:18). However, Moses was still not confident despite God's reassurance as we shall see in the up coming chapter. The rest of the verses from Exodus 3:16-22, we see the LORD giving Moses a 'summary of instructions' on how the children of Israel would depart from Egypt.

Sometimes when we receive instructions or prophecy from the LORD, they maybe an inclination to believe that its happening that very moment you hear the Word. However, in most cases, there is a time period involved before God's promises unfold and this is the reason patience is an important asset in the life of a believer. As seen above, the Holy Spirit is also able to assist a believer to walk in the fruit of patience (Galatians 5:22-23). Thankfully, every believer can rest in the hope that the Bible is living proof that every single Word spoken by God shall definitely come to pass and exactly the way He said it. Jeremiah 1:12 re assures us "...that the LORD is watching over His Word to perform it."

To be continued...GOD BLESS.
