“This Moses whom they rejected, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge?’ is the one God sent to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the Angel who appeared to him in the bush.” Acts 7:35
Moses stood before a burning bush that didn’t burn, before a God he couldn’t see trembling. God told him that he would deliver Israel out of bondage. A disgraced prince, one who failed a people who were his by birth, he chose to remain in the background, the safest place he thought to be. With Jethro and his kinsmen, Moses found a new family, a future, and a new life. He was comfortable with the life he created for himself, far away from the disaster in Egypt, far from his destiny.
The drama surrounding his life started from his birth, the King of drama himself, orchestrated it. He pulled strings here and there, fit people to do this and that, slotted in props where ever and whenever they were needed until Moses arrived at the place God wanted him. From the time Moses fled Egypt to the call at the burning bush, forty long years had passed. Did God need all that time? Why Moses? In the end, Moses became the man God created him to be, and his life continued to speak after his death.
Are we to believe like Moses that we exist just because? Like Moses, our life experiences may talk us into thinking that we are less than we are. Are we to hide away from destiny in some backwater life, licking our wounds and pretending that all is well?
There is a purpose for every life God has made. The Drama King himself built the stage for us, with characters, props, and the right settings. His plays have different timelines, and for one to succeed, it must follow His set times and seasons. We are alive today because He worked behind the scenes to pull strings, fit in people, and slot in props for us. Believe in God, and continue to ask for your part in the play. How can we give up on living never-ending lives, yes, death cannot stop us, we live on.
God called Moses out from the life he built for himself to the adventure of a lifetime. He knew the stakes before he took on the job and made it. Jesus came to the world, understanding who He was born to be and what God expected and excelled. Grace assures us of the fact that in Christ, we are also God’s children, heirs to His kingdom. Don’t wallow in what life has thrown at you, arise into the destiny God created for you. Arise into the space of the all-knowing. His Spirit will guide us daily, and in His life, we find life. So, arise today and play your part.
Till next time, be transformed!!
