Moses, the former prince of Egypt, became a shepherd, taking care of his father-in-law’s flocks. He married, started a family, and pretty much settled down and made his home in the land of Midian. He probably expected to spend the rest of his days taking care of sheep. But God had other plans.
Have you ever been in a seemingly hopeless situation? Have you felt abandoned by those you cared about most? Have you felt like God had forgotten you?
Life is hard. Sometimes we go through situations or circumstances that seem insurmountable. In these times, God can feel distant or even non-existent. However, the truth of the matter is that God is still there, right by our side. He never forgets us nor does He leave us. Sometimes, we are just oblivious to His presence.
Moses’ foolishness and actions, born out of his own strength and ideas, led him to a life of outlawry and drove him to the wilderness. However, as we learned last week, God had plans for him and many lessons to teach him. But we’re putting the cart before the horse. First, let’s look at how God provided for Moses in the wilderness and what happened after his flight from Egypt.
From being scooped out of the Nile River by Egypt’s princess to later being adopted by that same royal member, Moses’ early life had many twists and turns. However, Moses didn’t stay in the royal house forever. He eventually grew up and needed to walk the path towards the great destiny God had planned for him. So it’s time for the next chapter in Moses’ story.
