A strange chapter of Moses' life deals with his two wives. The story begins sometime during the first forty-year period of his life when he was the hero of Egypt.
Moses' life was full of lessons and instruction, and at the end of it, he left us a song that encapsulates much of what he learned about godly living.
Moses sacrificed great worldly honor to become a servant of God, demonstrating real servant leadership. God praises Moses for his faithfulness and meekness.
Moses could have ruled all of Egypt. This makes his sacrifice of 'refus[ing] to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,' all the more remarkable.
Our conviction reveals itself in living by faith. Moses is a stunning example of how a convicted Christian should live — with loyalty and faithfulness to God.
Because Psalm 91 has no title, commentators reason that the Psalms' editors want the reader to understand that, like Psalm 90, it also came from Moses' pen.
Like Moses, we have to develop conviction, a product of a relationship of God, established by being faithful day by day in the little things of life.
We frequently perceive characters in books as one-dimensional, and if we are an imaginative and comprehensive reader, perhaps in two dimensions.
Not only is Moses the first recorded servant of God to write songs of praise, but all the other psalmists also generally follow his style and themes.
Exodus 4 shows that Moses, returning to Egypt to lead God's people Israel to the Promised Land, did not have his own house in subjection to God's covenant.
Waiting on God is a work that demonstrates faith in Him, just as much as any other Christian deed. It is often one of the most difficult of all works.
It can be encouraging to us that our patriarchs and the prophets had serious doubts, but God overrode all their fears in accomplishing His purpose.
Martin Collins, maintaining that American culture prides itself on rugged individualism and independence, cautions that in spiritual matters, dependence upon God gives us the resolve, firmness, and tenacity for our spiritual journey. None of the heroes or heroines of faith faced their challenges by themselves, but were aware of …
Gideon began his life as a coward, became a conqueror, and ended a compromiser, all the while needing assurances from God to bolster his flagging faith.
Abraham, the father of the faithful, did not have a blind faith; it was based upon observation of God's proven track record of faithfulness.
God coordinates events to place one of His servants in a position of high visibility and sometimes great power at the center of world events to sound a warning.
Comparing the movie 'Prince of Egypt' with what the Bible and history tell us about the life of Moses proves that truth is more incredible than fiction.
Faithfulness in a person ultimately rests on his or her trust in God, and if a person is going to be faithful, its because he or she believes what God says.
Because the world is under the sway of the wicked one, if mankind were left to its own choices, the world would revert to the condition before the Flood.
Far from being blind, faith is based on analyzing, comparing, adding up from evidence in God's Word, our own experience, and our calling by God's Holy Spirit.
God does not want us to have confidence in ourselves or other people, but only in Him. Consequently, it is a mistake to trust the media or the leaders of nations.
Faithfulness is living continually by faith, acting even though doing so may cost us. Love is not primarily a feeling, but faithfulness in applying God's Word.
Becoming equipped for leadership requires that we discipline ourselves in following God's way of life, allowing the mind of Jesus Christ to be in us in.
We would like God to instantly gratify our desires. Consequently, we find living by faith difficult; we do not trust that He has things under control.
The heroes of faith may have had a longer period of testing than those called now, but the trials will come at greater intensity here at the end.
Nothing and no one can thwart God's purposes. We need to develop the faith to yield and conform to His will as clay in the potter's hands.
Like Jesus and other heroes of faith, we need to look beyond the present to the long term effects of the trials and tests we go though, seeing their value.
Ted Bowling, reminding us that prayer is our lifeline to God, a medium in which our faith is strengthened, focuses on several positions or postures used in prayer, including kneeling , bowing the head, or lying prostrate (all conveying degrees of submission and humility), but gives special attention to the posture of raising …
We must learn the lessons of godly leadership now because our positions in the Kingdom will require their use. Society demonstrates a lack of personal leadership.
Martin Collins, acknowledging that while the Israelites initially marvelled at God"s miracles and His intervention during the Exodus, suggests that they had poor memories of His vast power. We must remember that we, individually, are rescued from our lifelong bondage to sin. In our case, God works behind the scenes. As our …
Martha used her gifts, but to an excessive extreme. Jesus had to reel her in, setting her on a more productive course. We must use our gifts responsibly.
Why was Jesus transfigured on the mount? What did it mean? What was it designed to teach the apostles?
