Out of the ordinary

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 6:07 pm

Exodus 3:1 Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.2 And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed.

Moses used to be a somebody.  He went from being an abandoned slave baby to a prince of Egypt.  Then it all went downhill.  He became a wanted man, a murderer, a fugitive, settling down as a shepherd in exile (an occupation that was described as an ‘abomination’ in the culture he’d been brought up in).  I love that it was at this point, not the height of his royal status, that You called him.  A prince of Egypt leading a nation?  No big deal.  A disgraced shepherd?  That’s Your sort of transformation.  You take people out of their ordinary lives to something greater.

This gives me hope that, no matter how mundane my life can seem at times, You have something greater in store for me.  You don’t have to wait for me to achieve greatness to use me – Your strength is shown in my weakness.
