KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 4:21 ” And the LORD said unto Moses, when thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go”.
The Lord told Moses that his brother Aaron who was very eloquent was coming to meet him. God is a master planner. He works things out before you even know you have such a challenge. All we need as men is to trust His wisdom and follow His instructions.
Are you a child of God? Have you committed yourself to do that which pleases Him? then be very confident that He is also working everything out for your good. Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and to them who are called according to His purpose”.
The Lord assures Moses that He will be with his mouth, moment by moment and instruct him on what to say. In our work as witnesses and agents bringing salvation to others, we must be very dependent on the Holy Spirit. (John 16:13)
After God has given all the instructions to Moses he decided to go back to Egypt. Moses acted in obedience. The vital part of every instruction, is doing what you are told. What would have happened if Moses had decided not to obey what he was told? God would have found another man to execute the job, but Moses’ part in history would never have been heard at all. Many of us would have been changers of the course of history if we would have taken the instructions of scripture, daring every fear of failure or shame to go and affect many lives for God.
Archbishop Benson Idahosa of blessed memory is one man whose life affected millions in his day and even now. He responded positively to God’s commission. He started his redemption ministry when he decided to obey the scripture that said a believer in Christ has power to raise the dead. He was not a pastor, but a member of his church. He set off on a particular day looking for a dead person to raise. He found one in the late afternoon. He told the people he had come to raise their dead child. The people gave him the opportunity to raise this child. He could not do it in the first instant, but went back to the Bible and reread how Jesus raised the dead. He said, he asked everyone to leave the room and then in the name of Jesus commanded the dead child to rise up. The girl rose up and from then gained boldness to do so much for the Lord. God used him to save many lives. Every Christian is a candidate to deliver others if, he or she would be obedient to the great commission as stated in Matthew .28 :18-20.
I accept God’s commission to go into the world and make disciples of all men. I allow the Holy Spirit to work through me bringing life and deliverance to many.
Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Luke 9:1-2 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
