KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 3:10 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
The Lord God tells Moses of the fact that the cries of the children of Israel has gotten to Him and He has come to deliver them. The Lord said in our key scripture that Moses should come unto Him and He would send Him to Egypt and bring the Israelites from slavery. Please note God’s words carefully in the statement of commissioning. He said COME and I will send you…….”. Why did the Lord didn’t just say go to Egypt and bring my people but first said COME? The statement come can, mean leave everything you are trusting, leave your very self and depend solely on me.
God cannot do much with anyone who has self and the influence of his flesh. The Lord said if anyone will come after me, let him deny himself take up his cross and follow Him. (Matthew 16:24,25). No one can do any significant service unto God who has not first forsaken other dependencies especially self. The Lord Jesus died so that we would be free from ourselves. Apostle Paul said in Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Jesus……” In effect he was saying i have come out of myself.
In verse 11 Moses said who am I that I should go unto Pharaoh and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt”. The very thing the Lord was asking him to come out from is what he is complaining cannot do the job, that is SELF. He asks, who am I? Moses by himself will be like a mouse before a lion to Pharaoh. He needed to come out of himself and unite with God to fulfil the mission. Forsake the I and identify fully with God and His Power.
Dear child of God, you have been commissioned to go out to the world and set men free from Satan’s bondage but unfortunately many of us are failing to do this task. The reason is most of us are still hooked to ourselves. Tell yourself today, I turn around from everything holding me back and give myself totally to God to do God’s assignment for my life. Apostle Paul says in Galatians 1:15,16 that when the Lord called him, to reveal His son in Him he did not confer with flesh and blood”.
YOU WOULD DO MUCH FOR GOD IF, YOU STOP ALLOWING ALL FLESHLY INFLUENCES AND DEPEND FULLY ON THE LORD.
God has commissioned me to bring deliverance to the lost. I depend on the Lord and trust in Him to get His work done. The self is crucified with Christ and I freely serve the Lord.
Galatians 1:15-16 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Matthew 16:24 ” Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me”.
