Moses and you

29 September 2018
‘God called to him…‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, “Here I am.”’

Moses had all the potential in the world at forty, but felt like a lost cause at eighty. Instead of doing God’s will God’s way, he tried to speed up God’s will and ended up delaying it. At some point in our lives most of us will probably feel like life has passed us by. Our dream seems like a lost cause. At that point we can give up, or we can get ourselves back in the game. Many of us give up on our dreams because we feel like God has given up on us. But we serve a God of restoration. In the book of Joel, God says: ‘I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten – the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm– my great army that I sent among you’ (2:25 NIV). The life of Moses proves that no matter how many wrong turns we’ve taken, it’s God’s grace that gets us back on track. Moses thought his past had disqualified him, but God used it to prepare him for his future. No one knew the protocol of the palace like Moses did. After all, he grew up in it. And after tending sheep for forty years he knew the ways of the wilderness. Moses got it wrong before he got it right, and we may too. But God can use our past failures to grow our character and equip us with the strength and wisdom we need, to do what He put us on this earth to do. There’s a popular saying: ‘It’s wonderful what God can do with a broken life when you give Him all the pieces.’ And it’s true. He’ll restore us when we let Him in to our brokenness.

 

What Now?

Why not bring any broken pieces of your life to God today, and ask Him for restoration.
