Hello! Good people of God, welcome to another episode of our daily bible nuggets as we explore the book of Exodus; in today’s episode, you will learn a powerful message from the bible. The title of this episode is, Challenges are on the way, but keep moving.
As God sent Moses on the mission, to bring the Israelites out of Egypt, He gave Moses a blessed assurance of success. God said: when you must have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship me on this mountain. Moses however, seemed not interested in the mission. Moses tried convincing God to send someone else. In all his excuses, Moses was unable to exempt himself from the task. He eventually embarked on the journey.
Now, one may ask, why did Moses try dodging embarking on such a mission? Well, the answer is clear; such a task is going to be a very challenging one. Walking up to the king of the most powerful empire and asking him to free his slaves is not a simple task to undertake. In his initial response to God in verse 11 of Exodus chapter 3, Moses said, “who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt.”
Even God Himself knows that it was not going to be an easy task; God categorically told Moses saying; “I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty hand compels him.”
This very passage of the scriptures teaches us a powerful message, and that is, “the journey to success and freedom is tough and full of challenges. But when we fix our eyes and minds on the expected end, we can summon the courage to move on. Once Moses remembered that God had promised he will bring the children of Israel to the very mountain they encountered, he picked courage and forged ahead with the task.
Child of God, you need to understand that trials and tribulations will surely come; when they come, you need to remember who is with you. God is with you. In the book of Isaiah 43 verse 2, God says: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, and the flame will not scorch you.
These are words of assurance from a God who never fails. So, next time you encounter any challenge in your life, be it sickness, lack, sorrow, loss, etc., weep not, for greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
May God almighty always give you the strength to pick courage amid adversity and forge ahead till you reach your success destination, Amen.
