Gods work is to be done in His way
Gods vision is not based on man, it’s based on His provision *If you want to be the greatest one then learn and live as one called to serve others* It takes courage to be exceptional * Always stand for what is right even if you stand alone.
But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, in all the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, before Pharaoh, before all his servants, and in all his land, and by all that mighty power and all the great terror which Moses performed in the sight of all Israel.
We serve a living God who speaks to His children through His word, prophets, dreams and visions ( man made idols are lifeless and powerless they cannot speak nor hear ). The above scripture portion tells us that God spoke to Moses face to face and He used him to perform mighty miracles and brought out His children from bondage to take them to the promised land.
What a privilege and honor to serve the living God, what a blessing in life Moses had and got from God he had the opportunity to speak to God face to face, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Creator of this universe speaking face to face with His creation. Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God, Moses not only saw God, but he also spoke with God face to face that is why Moses, even though he was not there at the time of creation, he could write about the creation of the universe, because the great I Am, the beginning and the end revealed the beginning to him and the end to John the most loved disciple of Jesus Christ.
The reason why God used Moses mightily was because of his availability, accountability and his total and complete dependence on God for anything and everything, he said to God, I will not go till You go with me, then God said My presence shall be with thee and go before thee and he was able to fulfill Gods plan, purpose and vision for his life.
Gods work is to be done in His way and not in our way, because His ways are different and higher than from ours. The biggest problem in the body of Christ is non availability of selfless leaders like Moses. One of the major reason why God’s work suffers, gets affected and the gospel doesn’t move speedily is, because of selfish leaders who come out of their houses to serve God, but they end up serving man, name, fame, power, authority, money, numbers, programs, churches, ministry and not God. They very cooly and completely forget that they will have to give an account of every idle word and work which they have spoken and done in their earthly life and ministry (the word of God is a double edged sword it is to be used for teaching as well as for correction).
One of the reason why God used Moses mightily was, because he was willing to pay the price to walk with God. Moses was comfortable in the house of Pharoah, he had everything at his disposal, he was second in line to Pharoah, but he gave up all the pleasures of this world to follow and serve God, palace, or the deserts of Midian or in the wilderness he was always ready to move anywhere and everywhere to follow and serve God. Are we willing to do it?.
Every person who has ever walked with God had to pay the price, without paying the price, the promise will not come to pass. Abraham had to pay the price he had to leave his family, friends and relatives, Joseph had to pay the price, the favorite child of his father Jacob was taken from his father’s bosom and thrown into a pit and then sold like a slave. Peter the most trusted disciple of Jesus had a price to pay, he had to leave his lucrative fishing career and business to become fishers of men. Are you willing to pay the price and follow and serve the living God ?. Are you willing to say yes to God and win souls for Christ?. If so what God did for Moses, He will do it for you, He will use you mightily wherever you are and wherever you may go to, He is no respecter of a person, He is a respecter and rewarded of faith and faith alone.
Today let’s check our mind, heart, soul and spirit, Are we doing God’s work in His way or in our way? Are we doing God’s work selflessly or are we doing it selfishly for our name, fame, power, authority, money and glory ?. Does our life and ministry bring glory to God or to the devil ? ( remember Moses whom God had called to deliver His children to take them to the promised land himself could not enter it, because he did not hallow God in front of the Israelites at the waters of Meribah Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin, Deuteronomy 32:51 ).
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
Heavenly Father thank You for the word, thank You for entrusting us with Your kingdom work, give us the grace to do Your work selflessly without any selfish motive to earn and gain name, fame, money, power, numbers, success and self glory. Let our lives, ministry, everything that we have and do bring name, praise, honor and glory only to Your name in Jesus name we ask and pray.
Amen and Amen.
God loves you
