Book of Exodus.

Today's Message: Yielding to God
Today we will learn the importance eliminating self will and yielding
to God's Will. God has a purpose for each and every one of us and will
use every experience as a way to prepare and bring us closer to Him to
follow His Will for our lives.

Today's Bible Reading: Exodus Chapters 1-4

The book of Exodus is the second book of the Old Testament and
contains fourty chapters. The author of the book is Moses and it was
written to Isreal. The purpose of the book was to record their
deliverance from slavery in Egypt and document theit purpose for
existance as a nation. What we are to learn from the book is that
Salvation comes only through the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.

After the death of Joseph and his brothers a new Pharoh took over in
the land of Egypt, he no recollection of Joseph and feared the
multitudes of Isrealites among the land. The once privileged
Israelites were reduced to bitter slavery. "And Joseph died, and all
his brethren, and all that generation. And the children of Israel were
fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed
exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. Now there arose
up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his
people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and
mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they
multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war,
they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them
up out of the land." (Exodus 1:6-10). All of God's children are feared
by the world and they will try anything to keep us captive.

The severity of their fear became obvious when Pharoh demanded that
all new Hebrew sons be killed. "And the king of Egypt spake to the
Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the
name of the other Puah: And he said, When ye do the office of a
midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a
son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall
live. But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt
commanded them, but saved the men children) alive." (1:15-17). To fear
God does not mean to be afraid of Him, it means to have respect for Him.

The midwives knew that God was with them and by their faith they were
able to save the child, Moses who would be the great leader of the
Isrealites. "And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to
wife a daughter of Levi. And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and
when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of
bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child
therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's
brink...............And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash
herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's
side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to
fetch it. And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold,
the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of
the Hebrews' children...............And Pharaoh's daughter said unto
her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee
thy wages. And the women took the child, and nursed it. And the child
grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her
son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him
out of the water." (2:1-3,5-6,9-10).

Now, Moses enjoyed the first fourty years of his life in the kings
palace, but all that changed when he killed an Egyptian man who was
cruel to a couple of Isrealites. He fled as he feared for his life and
resided in the land of Midian. It was there, fourty years later that
God spoke to Moses through a bruning bush. "And the angel of the LORD
appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and
he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was
not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this
great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the LORD saw that he
turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush,
and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I." (2:1-4). It must have
seemed to Moses a waste of 40 years to do nothing of importance. But,
with the Lord, such time is never wasted. Moses could never have
learned humility or been able to come closer to God in an Egyptian
palace. He was too busy and too important. However, both experiences
were vital in preparing him to be the person God could use to lead His
people out of Egypt.

The wisdom of the world cannot qualify us to make right decisions in
life We must be taught by the Holy Spirit through reading His Word and
being obedient to its truth. It is the Holy Spirit's anointing on what
we do and say that makes our lives worthwhile. Like Moses, our most
basic need is the removal of self-sufficiency. It was spiritually
necessary for Moses to tend sheep in order for him to eliminate
self-will and fully yield to God's will.

Today's Prayer:
Dear God,
I realize that at times I forget that all things work together for
Your good. Every experience in my life is one meant to help me grow
closer to You and follow Your Will so that I am protected and safe
from the world. Lord, bless me with the wisdom and understanding that
I need to know You Will for me, help me to search the Scriptures to
know exactly what that is so I am one step closer insead of two steps
away from You. Help me also to remember to seek You and ask You daily
for my needs through prayer as you always say that I have not beca
