By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin.
Everyone whom God uses must go through the process of work in order to become the person God wants them to be. Moses was born with all the raw ingredients of a deliverer and leader of God’s people. But if you follow his story, including his forty years of shepherding in the wilderness, it wasn’t until he was eighty that God began to use him to the fullness of his potential and purpose. It took a long time to prepare Moses to be the man that God wanted him to be.
As was true of Moses, who you are right now has all the raw ingredients for what God wants you to become so you can accomplish His purpose for your life. But there are still some things that need to be refined, some things that need to be added, and some things that need to be taken out. There are some tweaks and some changes that must be made if you are going to accomplish what God wants you to achieve in your life.
The question is, are you willing to do the work that is required to improve and become the best you can be for Him?
Father, bless us and keep us. Make Your face to shine upon us. Be gracious unto us and give us Your peace. As we pursue Your plan and purpose and as we are willing to do the work of Your Kingdom, pour out Your blessing upon those who are indeed pursuing you. Reward them that diligently seek You. Answer those who ask, and open the way for those who knock. Give blessings upon blessings and favor upon favor. Let the goodness of God be poured out in the land of the living for those who are willing, faithful and obedient to Your Word in Jesus’ name, we pray. And all of God’s children said, “Amen.”
