Discussion for Exodus 3

  • Robo
    Indeed I am one of those who is being blessed by the Daily Bible Reading prraogm. I don't believe that if one seriously and meditatorily open the bible in the right frame of mind, sincerely willing to understand, inviting the Holy Spirit who inspired its writing,jotting down important revealed points,can fail to understand. It is true that if it is opened just like any other text book, hurriedly and when the mind is not ready,without a heartfelt prayer, no understanding. Students set themselves targets to complete text books that matter to their exam. If heaven matters to me, seriously I can set myself a target to complete the ONLY BOOK that can reveal God's will for me in preparation for that.Through this prraogm, I can summarise important events in ALL the books I have covered. At our Church, we take turns to summarise each book covered, and the whole church makes inputs.It is working wonders.

    It's amazing how God chose to use Moses even though he hadn't learned much about God,but obviously knew a little about Him. Thinking in himself that he could not do this great work that God was asking him to do. God sure knew what he could do through Him and through his obedience.How awesome is He!
  • Angie
    I am always so awed when we ask God how is it He chooses us to do something, as Moses did in 3:11...and God stated, "Certainly I will be with you"....it would have been impossible for Moses without God...as it would be impossible for us to do anything without God... and without Him sending us...

    Moses was equipped and prepared by God prior to his calling after being called God lead Moses and Moses followed Gods instructions God made Moses aware that he would meet resistance but God assured him he would be with him until Pharaoh let the people go. We must also seek Gods instruction and follow them as Moses and allow God to take care of us
