Moses was enduring a rough stretch in his life. He had lived the first part of his life (after being saved from death through the providence of God), in the lap of luxury. He had received the best education that was possible in his world and he had everything that any young man could want.
However, he had a heart for his people. He came to the rescue of his fellow Hebrew, and it turned his life around. His act of delivering one of his fellow countrymen caused other Hebrews to turn on him. It caused Pharaoh to turn his anger on Moses and attempt to have him killed. Finally, it caused Moses to have to flee to a foreign land.
It was during this difficult stretch in the life of this man of God that he learned one of life’s most valuable lessons. He learned that if he was going to rescue and deliver the people of God, he would not be able to do it alone. He would need the help of God.
Brothers, all of us will experience good days and bad in our ministries. There are times we may feel like we are on top of the world.
Other times, we may feel as though our brethren have turned on us. It may appear that we are being singled out by Satan or one of his ambassadors for destruction. Our jobs or our current situation may cause us to believe that we are being banished to the wilderness.
While, I don’t know what you may be enduring in your life or work right now, I can assure you of something that you already know. You nor I can make it through the tough times alone. It is during these times that we must continually turn to our Lord. We must seek His face. We must cast all our cares on Him, knowing He cares for us. We must learn with Moses that we desperately need the Lord if we are going to help His people.
