Bible Reading Exodus 3:1-22
Focus Scripture Exodus 3:11-15
Hello Purposeful People!
Today’s podcast Fear, Excuses, and Opportunities is something I believe we can all identify with… Yesterday on the Our Given Purpose Youtube channel I talked about a missed opportunity. I allowed fear to take over and made the excuse that I didn’t know enough to take on the opportunity that was laid before me. And that was to go into business. I didn’t go to our Lord in prayer and ask for His strength to help me. This is one of my biggest regrets.
When we know someone’s character or how they will deal with us it makes our task a little easier. We aren’t immediately offended because we know the person’s heart. Armed with that knowledge we can forge ahead with the bigger picture; instead of focusing on the small emotional issue. Pharaoh was determined to keep his slaves and heaped more work on them because of Moses. We too may feel as though our workload has doubled; because we are going against the grain of what this world’s leaders tell us we should do. Or should aspire to become, or even who to serve as God. Using the book of Exodus as a reminder that we as children of God we have a greater purpose within His divine plan and we are to seek after Him for our direction. Like Moses it may be time to have an open and honest conversation with God, coming humbly before him seeking His wisdom.
