Weekly Bulletin - January 29th

Cornerstone Church,

Moses wasn’t ready; the Hebrews were not ready. Moses was educated at the top of Egypt. He was, for all intents and purposes, grandson to Pharaoh. He was in the prime of his life, 40 years old. He was mighty in words and deeds (Acts 7:22). He was motivated by justice, but not spiritually prepared.

Ex 2:11-12 says, "11 Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. And he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. 12  So he looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand."

Sometimes we look at external indicators and they all line up. The "it" factor.  Moses had "it." The moment was ripe. But what he did not have was the calling or blessing of God. Because of this, his actions were rash, they were misguided and sinful. It was just too much, too soon.    
It would take 40 years for Moses to come full circle to the purpose of God for his life. God in His grace was not done with him. God is not done with you either.  "But, I messed up," you respond.  "I am too old."  "I am not a king, but a lowly shepherd." God replies, "I know, but now you are ready."

God has a special way of training His people. It is not in the wisdom, power and opportune time of this world. It just may be on the backside of the desert, face to face with a burning bush. But we will talk more about that next time.
