THE MEETING

 
"Moses became afraid." —Exodus 2:14
 

Moses was a baby floating in a basket on a river (Ex 2:3). He was sure to die.

After being weaned, Moses never knew his parents. He was a Hebrew who knew nothing but the Egyptian culture. He was rootless.

Moses had a speech defect. Even at eighty years old, he felt embarrassed and inferior every time he had to talk.

Moses was a murderer and a fugitive from the law (Ex 2:12, 15). He was a violent, fearful victim.

Then Moses met God. God made Moses:

  • one of the greatest leaders in history,
  • the liberator of a whole nation,
  • a miracle-worker, and
  • the chosen recipient of God's law.

When we meet God, we begin to live a new life. Our weaknesses become power (2 Cor 12:9). Our past becomes a showcase for God's mercy (see 1 Tm 1:16). God even works our sins together for the good (Rm 8:28).

Meet God. Live the abundant life (Jn 10:10). Rejoice forever (Phil 4:4). Meet God!

 
Prayer: Father, may I meet You as Moses, Isaiah, Paul, Mary, and countless others have met You.
Promise: "If the miracles worked in you had taken place in Sodom, it would be standing today." —Mt 11:23
Praise: Jesus delivered Ron from an addiction to drugs just as his wife was about to leave him. He gave his life to Jesus, and now the couple has a healing ministry.
