YOU OF ALL PEOPLE

 
"On one occasion Jesus spoke thus: 'Father, Lord of heaven and earth, to You I offer praise; for what You have hidden from the learned and the clever You have revealed to the merest children.' " —Matthew 11:25
 

Moses was not learned and clever. He was an abandoned child, a murderer, a fugitive, and a foreigner. He had psychological problems and a speech defect which significantly hindered his ability to communicate (Ex 4:10; 6:30). Moses was one of "the world's lowborn and despised, those who count for nothing" (1 Cor 1:28).

God promised He would reveal to people like Moses secrets hidden from the learned and the clever (Mt 11:25). God promised that people like Moses who are poor in the eyes of the world would be rich in faith (Jas 2:5). God was true to His word when He appeared to Moses in the burning bush. To Moses, God revealed His name, I AM, and His plan of redemption through the Exodus (Ex 3:14ff). No king, politician, religious leader, or millionaire ever dreamed of the exodus. It was impossible and inconceivable. But God revealed it to Moses, of all people. The Spirit reveals even greater things to lowly Moseses of the new covenant.

 
Prayer: Jesus, may I become, like Mary, lowly enough to learn.
Promise: "So indeed the cry of the Israelites has reached Me." —Ex 3:9
Praise: On arriving in any town, St. Henry's custom was to spend the first night there praying in a church dedicated to Mary.
