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,

GOD CARES ABOUT DETAIL.................

LUKE 12:7
7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't
be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

ISAIAH 41:13
13 For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right
hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

The above scriptures really spoke to me this morning. At times
we can go through life feeling like we are in control and the only
one that can take care of ourselves.

God's word speaks differently. God's word reminds me that I'm not
in this alone. That he is concerned about even the smallest details
of our life, down to the very hairs on our head.

I pray that this serves as a great reminder to each and every one of
us that God is and always will be in control of every aspect of our lives.
The good and the bad. He cares deeply for our souls.

I don't know about you, but it sure is reassuring and a great comfort to
consider he is taking hold of my hand each and every day!

Today I'm very thankful that my Father is a part of my life and walking beside
me and not just a God that isn't aware of each and every moment!

Have a blessed weekend,

In David’s psalm of repentance, Psalm 51:10-13, he says,

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You.

This is my prayer this morning. Begin in me Lord. Cleanse my heart and restore my Joy IN YOU!

Elton Trueblood, a Quaker scholar wrote that “Evangelism occurs when Christians are so ignited by their contact with Christ that they in turn set other fires. It is easy to determine when something is aflame. It ignites other material. Any fire that does not spread will eventually go out.”

I never want to burn out or fizzle to the point that I stop GOING and SPREADING, DO YOU?

Today I challenge each of you to seek the Lord with all of your heart in order to reach those hearts that are lost and without Christ.

How great is God—beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out. (Job 36:26)

Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds. (Psalm 145:3-6)

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ ... (Ephesians 2:4-5a)

I chose these scriptures because they spoke to my heart personally.

Just like Job… How GREAT IS GOD – and it is certainly beyond my understanding and the thought that his numbers are past finding out. THAT GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN is more than I can imagine?

The second scripture spoke out to me because this is an area that I desire to share MORE. This scripture jumped out and said MISSIONAL.

That I would share the gospel in such a way that my children and my children’s children would tell of our great God.

The last one sums up the entire message of the gospel. BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT LOVE! That is when I cry out Oh my. Because of his RICH MERCY.. I’m now alive. I can see in full view where I once was and where I now am JUST BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT LOVE!
