It is Too Heavy for Me
Numbers 11:14 (KJB) I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me.
The Israelites complained to Moses and Moses whined to God.
“It is too heavy.
How can I do this job alone.”
Moses quickly began to feel sorry for himself and to wind his thoughts further and further from God.
We have all been there. The road before us is long, the job is hard, and in our limited ... Continue Reading →

Waxed Strong in Spirit
Luke 1:80 (KJB) And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
This short succinct verse has much to say about the time of maturing in John’s youth. His growing and maturing years were spent in the desert. Not the palace.
The growth of Paul (formerly known as Saul) who mingled with men of law, sprouting forth from the feet of Gamaliel, and on ... Continue Reading →

A Good Question
Acts 7:26-29 (KJB) And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another? 27 But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us? 28 Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday? 29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and ...

At the Commandment of The Lord
Numbers 9:23 (KJB) At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed: they kept the charge of the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
God led the Israelites by His commandments. First, they were opposed to hearing and applying God’s direction and correction through His servant Moses. This chosen indifference and disobedience to the will of God ... Continue Reading →

They Did as The Lord Commanded
Exodus 7:10-13 (KJB) And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they ...

More Like Moses
Exodus 33:13-15 (KJB) Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people. 14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. 15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

God Raised Up Moses To Be A Leader

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 ... Continue Reading →

No Other God
Exodus 34:14 (KJB) For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
Moses beseeched God for His help. While he had been busy serving God the people, left alone for a time, had chosen to busy themselves by serving golden idols. Moses understood that idolatry in any form was a “spiritual slap in the face” to God and would not be tolerated.
God intervened in this idolatrous situation of ... Continue Reading →

A “Roll your Eyes Moment” For Unbelievers
Exodus 7:17-18 (KJB) Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood. 18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the ...
