Learning from Moses (1)

August 24, 2020

“Moses…refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” Heb 11:24 NIV

 

The life of Moses reveals four issues you must come to grips with in order to succeed in life. First: You must know who you are. “Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” Moses was born a Hebrew, but he was raised as an Egyptian by Pharaoh’s daughter. Even though he was being groomed to be second-in-command in Pharaoh’s kingdom, Moses knew God had called him to free his people and lead them out of Egypt. So, he had to make a choice: “What am I going to do with my life? I’m not who these people think I am.” Moses had every comfort he could wish for in the palace, and he could have stayed there. What would you have done? Moses made the right decision, but it meant spending the next eighty years of his life in the desert. Every one of us must come to grips with our identity. We all have a deep need and desire to accept who we are. Trying to be who we’re not is a quick way to get an ulcer, because it puts us under so much pressure. Moses recognized this tension, and decided to quit pretending. It’s liberating when we stop trying to be somebody we’re not, and accept God’s plan for our life. How would we remember Moses today if he had stayed in Pharaoh’s court? Maybe as an Egyptian mummy in some museum—or maybe not at all. But he made the hard decision, and in the light of eternity it was the best one. Learn from him!
