MosesπŸ‘³πŸΌGod’s SheepπŸ‘&Fiery BushπŸ”₯

Q: Did Moses have Doubt About God’s Plans for him?

Every day Moses would wake up early and ask God?
“LORD, what would you have me do today?”

Every day God would say to him in the desert,
“Feed your sheep”

40 years God told him this every single day,
“Feed your sheep”

Q: Did Moses ever waiver?

Then very early one morning Moses awoke and said,
“LORD, what would you have me do today?”

On this day our fiery God (in a bush) told Moses,
“Feed MY sheep”

Of course, Moses first had to traverse many miles back into that depraved Egyptian land, demonstrate to the people and pharaoh that God sent him, stand firm amid plagues, go through the night terror of the firstborn’s death (asking himself, is my firstborn really safe?) and somehow get over 1,000,000 people to follow him into that desolate wasteland – then of course, “feed” God’s “sheep” – and believe me, they were every bit as stubborn (& even more so) than the actual sheep!

Q: Did Moses ever waiver those first 40 years in the desert? He was 80 when called

Q: Did Moses ever waiver those other 40 years in the desert? He lived to be 120 yrs.

“By faith Moses, when he was come to years, … Esteem[ed]… the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt…. By faith he forsook Egypt… for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible. (Hebrews 11:24-27)

Moses’ mom had him memorize scripture,
as all good Jewish boys are taught (he was in her care 8 years)*

In those 80 years Moses was in the desert, he most likely sang something similar to Psalm 130,

🎢”Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O LORD…. there is forgiveness with Thee…. I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in His word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning… Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy…. And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.”🎢🎡

THOUGH,
Moses did doubt that it was he who would be used of God to rescue Israel.

So he argued with God to the point of God’s anger in Exodus 3 & 4.

It may be okay (in sincerity) to argue with God, yet be careful not to cross the line.

For In the next 40 years in the desert with God’s “sheep,” all the multitude ever did was argue, bicker, murmur and rebel.

Q: Did Moses ever regret that he argued with God?
Q: Did Moses finally lose his cool? (Num.20:1-13)
Q: Was that okay? (Num.20:12; Deut.34:4)

Q: Can we learn from Moses’ mistakes?

Most assuredly.
It may be that you have waited 40 years doing the mundane. It may seem that all you are witnessing to are the animals in your care.

Though we may not be aware, our neighbors, friends and family are watching your every move and listening to every word said, as unseen guardian angels are faithfully recording all.

God will come to call you out of your faithful watch over the small things.

Do not repeat Moses’ mistake, be ready for Him to ask you to do the really BIG stuff – He will come calling β€” soon… even if you’re 80 (or more) – Moses did his hardest work between 80 years to 120 years.
