KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 3:13 ” And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?”
Moses kept asking God for various clarifications. He asks what should I tell them when they ask of your name? The Lord was very open to tell him His name.
One thing many of us have been failing is, to ask God various questions on our minds. In this issue we see God answering him by saying He is the I AM THAT I AM. Children of God would experience a better life if they would be prompt to ask God various questions that borders them.
Ask God anything that you do not understand or have no solutions to. If certain issues have refused solutions over a long time, ask Him the way out. The Holy Spirit is present with us to guide us into all truth, and so is ready to answer various questions on our mind. (John 16:13)
In chapter 4:1 Moses inquires further that the Israelites will not believe him if he just goes to them telling them that the God of their fathers has appeared unto him and is ready to deliver them. He had to show them something tangible to prove that this God is able to deliver them.
In Exodus 4:2 the Lord asked him to cast the rod in His hands on the ground and it became a snake. The Lord asked him to put his hand in his bosom and when he put it out it was leprous. He put it back again and it became whole again. With God all things are possible. He can create life out of dead things. He is able to do what He says.
One other lesson we learn about Moses is that he would stay through till he is convinced about an issue. Moses will not settle on mere words he wanted proofs.
The Lord says in Isaiah 1:8 “Come now, and let us reason together saith the Lord…….”. The Lord is ready to go whatever lengths with us. Do not just leave God’s presence. Wait for answers to whatever you are requesting. The Lord will surely show up. Jacob after wrestling with the angel of God did not allow the angel to go until he blesses him. Jacob did not give up but had his blessing.
You would be blessed if you do not give up.
I will always stay through with God to obtain whatever God has for me. Delays are not denials .
Genesis 32:26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
Luke 11:8 ” I say unto you, though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth”.
