The book of Exodus begins with a potted history of the children of Israel during the years before the exodus from Egypt to the promised land. Included is the story of Moses who would eventually lead them out.
Although brought up in the luxury of the palace of the Pharaoh, Moses intervened in the harsh treatment of a Hebrew slave. I’m sure that Moses was well aware of his adoptive status in the royal household, but nevertheless, I don’t think that he would have had much empathy with the rest of his people – until this point.
It seems that Moses couldn’t help but jump in, and the result was much more than he expected.
After fleeing to Midian Moses again jumps in the champion the daughters of the priest of Midian. It would seem that Moses had a penchant for standing up for the underdog.
Although he resisted God’s command to return to Egypt and save the Hebrews, once he got there he couldn’t help but champion their cause and take it all the way.
God knew this; He had created Moses as the man he was for this moment. Right through history we have seen men such as this who God has made and moulded for His glory and His purposes.
When your moment comes, will you be ready?
