I’ve been drawing deep encouragement from Moses’ encounter with the living God. The God who hears. The God who sees. The God who comes to his people.
Why did God choose Moses? Because God had observed the misery of his people. Heard them crying. Knows about their suffering.
“Then the Lord said, “I have observed the misery of my people in Egypt, and have heard them crying out because of their oppressors. I know about their sufferings, and I have come down to rescue them from the power of the Egyptians and to bring them from that land to a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the territory of the Canaanites, Hethites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites.” (Exodus 3:7–8, CSB)
And because God saw, he invites Moses to see too. But not just to see, but to step in and take action.
It can be easy to focus on Moses’ behaviour (Why me?!), but lately, I have felt the Lord inviting me to observe his whys?
What is it that God is hearing, observing, knows about, and sees that you’re being invited to help solve?
God observing and hearing and responding is why he chose Moses – it’s also the same reason he chooses you and me!
