Most of the time God gives His people glimpses of our assignment for our life or glimpses of our future ministry. We read about Moses who grew up in the house of Pharaoh one day came out to see his people. Exodus 2:11-15 says, "And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.
And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand. And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?
And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well".
Though this was done in human strength and in human way but you still see Moses in some way involved in deliverance.
Well, now notice the second incident that took place near the well where Moses sat after he reached Midian according to Exo.2:16-20 "Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their fathers flock.
And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.
And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to day?
And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.
And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread". Here you see Moses once again involved in deliverance.
At this moment, I want to encourage you to personally check your life and see - In which area has God always used you especially, concerning others. In other words, how have you often helped others or been a blessing to them? Are you now getting a glimpse of the same? You can find the purpose of God for your life and your assignment in the same. You always end up doing the same thing again and again and are always attracted towards making it happen for others.
It is not just about your desire being fulfilled but getting an inner joy and satisfaction when you are involved in doing something for others which will help them reach their destiny. Like Joseph who interpreted and helped others with their dreams.
Finally, we see Moses involved in the deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt's cruel bondage. Now this time it was done in God's way, in God's strength and in God's time. What a deliverance was wrought! Moses yielded himself totally to God and God had His way in and through him.
"Moses yielded himself totally to God and God had His way in and through him."
Beloved, may be you have a great desire to be used by God and to see His purpose fulfilled in and through you. Some times in human strength you must have tried to do things. May be you did the right thing at the wrong time or the wrong thing at the right time. What ever it maybe - But don't give up now because God is breaking all the obstacles in your life and is causing you to come to the main phase of your assignment for which you were sent to the earth. Remember, the resurrection power always flows when it is channelized to help others.
Even as you read this article it is my prayer that the precious Holy Spirit will give you glimpses of the work you were involved in the past in helping others and will make the purpose of God for your life very clear to you, so that in the days to come you will seek God more on those lines and see a mighty breakthrough in order to be a blessing to others.
May the Lord really help you! Amen !
