Exodus 2:11-15 (English Standard Version)
Moses Flees to Midian
11One day,(A) when Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and looked on their(B) burdens, and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his people.[a] 12He looked this way and that, and seeing no one, he(C) struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. 13When(D) he went out the next day, behold, two Hebrews were struggling together. And he said to the man in the wrong, "Why do you strike your companion?" 14He answered,(E) "Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you mean to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?" Then Moses was afraid, and thought, "Surely the thing is known." 15When Pharaoh heard of it, he sought to kill Moses. But(F) Moses fled from Pharaoh and stayed in the land of Midian. And he sat down by(G) a well.
When the self-life finally sits down, the well of a new life lies near. When will we ever learn that? Sitting down goes against the grain. Yet when that broken forty-year-old named Moses finally slumped to the ground at the end of a self-driven life, fresh water (spiritual water) was readily available...........
Sit down and be still. Its amazing what God is capable and ready to do in our lives if we just stop and sit down. Then maybe we will have ears to hear what he is trying to say to us..... THIS WAS GOOD WORD FOR ME TODAY!
Have a blessed weekend,
