The days seemed to blend together with one day pass- ing, almost unrecognizably different from the previous day. It was a seething tinc- ture of failure, disappoint- ment, doubt and regret. His clothes smelt like someone else’s herds. His feet trod down paths that were famil- iar, yet foreign. He was mak- ing do when he felt like he couldn’t do anything else. He was once a prince, but now a shepherd. He was once a rul- er, but now he was fugitive. He was once rich, but now everything he had belonged to someone else. Moses languished on the back side of the desert out the reach of Pharaoh and seemingly for- gotten by God.
David wrote in Psalms 139: 1-3 “O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsit- ting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thoughts afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.” The Psalmist con- tinued and penned ... “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: mar- velous are thy works.”
David said, “God you know everything about me, and you still do wonderful things in my life.” David rec- ognized that God refused to leave well enough alone. He recognized that okay wasn’t what God had intended. He also recognized he couldn’t remain silent about what Je- sus was doing in his life.
Moses had a wife, a job, a place to hang his hat, and food on his table. His past wasn’t threatening him, and things were predictable. God could have left him in the desert. But God refused to leave well enough alone.
Moses was to have an experi- ence with God that was un- like any other and he would go on to have a relationship with God like none other.
The devil would love to make you think that God has skipped over you. He wants your heart filled with uncertainty. Evil thrives on wrong attitudes, out-of-sort spirits, anxiety, and fear. However, the Word of God tell us, “For God hath not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” in 2 Timothy 1:7. It goes on to say in 1 Corinthians 14:33 that God is not the author of confusion but of peace.
It took Moses just a few minutes on holy ground for his whole world to change. Moses stepped into a plane of existence where there was fire and he could hear God’s voice. His recognition of what God was doing kickstarted a journey filled with miracles. God wants to do the same thing for you. God’s into fixing things. He wants to fix your mind, mend your brokenness, and usher you into a miraculous relationship with Him.
So how do we get there? We can lift up our hands and lift up our voices and recognize that God is not done with us. Praise and Worship properly positions us for a miracle. You aren’t too old. It’s never too late. Nothing is impossible for God.
This week I challenge you to get honest with God and let Him hear your voice. God’s word guarantees you won’t be disappointed.
