KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 2:2 ” And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months”.
We take another journey to look at one of God’s servants, Moses. There are a lot to learn about him. Moses came in as a deliverer. He was born because of God’s agenda to free his people from bondage.
In one of our discussions on king David we said leadership is the baby of a vision. God’s vision to deliver his people gave birth to Moses. The bible is the greatest book on leadership. Dear leader it is the vision that gave the cause for your role. Every good leader is to fulfill God’s agenda and not his. You would succeed as a leader if you highly esteem God who initiated the idea, that is the vision and then focus on the vision. If you the leader become the center of action and attention you have failed. You as a leader should never allow your interest to becloud your task. You exist as a leader because of the task and in fulfilling that task you please God and become a beacon of hope unto many.
The name Moses means “drawn” since he was drawn out of the water. It also means rescued.
Moses was born at a crisis moment. Before his birth the Pharaoh, that is the king of Egypt decided to control the population of the Jews by killing all male born to them. Every boy below two years was to be killed. Satan and his devils always scheme and strategise to destroy the saints of God. Ephesians 6:11 tells us to “put on the whole armour of God that he may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil”.
The bible said Moses mother kept him for three months and when she could not hide him further decided to place him in a basket which was well sealed from within so no water could enter and placed him in the Nile where the Pharaoh’s daughter comes to wash or bath. Hebrews 11:23 says the mother kept him by faith. She put him on the river by faith as she asked his sister to watch what will happened. At certain times the best way to keep a thing is to release it. As she released him, she let him into God’s hands to determine the whole future of the boy. Our father is the greatest keeper, preserver and protector of all things. The child became more secured when the mother by faith released him into God’s hands.
I pray for all leaders and people who occupy various positions in organizations, groups, and associations that, they are at that position because of a specified task and would do good to themselves by fulfilling that task.
1 Peter 5:2 ” Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;”
2 Timothy 1:12 ” For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless, I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day”.
