God Raised Up Moses To Be A Leader
Acts 7:21-22 (KJB) And when he was cast out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son. 22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
God made good on His promise to Abraham and Jacob to raise a leader up who was appropriate for His special spiritual job to come.
God raised up an infant named Moses.
Moses’s life began in quiet and modest fashion. Soon after birth, he was in danger of being killed as a boy who was under the age of two. A reed basket was fashioned for him by his mother to float down the river for furthering his safety and security. Moses did survive this threat to his young life and subsequently was raised in pharaoh’s palace among Egyptians learning both words and deeds.
Moses survived a king’s rage, a potential killing spree, and was instead divinely protected in the king’s palace no less!
Because God had a divine plan for his life since before his birth.
It took Moses awhile to “warm up” to God’s plan for his life. Even as an adult Moses did not desire to follow all of God’s plan for His life, feeling he was not the person with enough natural talent for the job God had for him.
However, It was not natural talent God was interested in, He was looking for Moses to be a willing servant that He could use through faith according to God’s divine will and way.
