“Go, gather the elders of Israel together, the mature teachers and tribal leaders, and say to them, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared to me saying, I have surely visited you and seen that which is done to you in Egypt.” Exodus 3:16
In this verse Moses has just been called by God to go to pharoah and get the Israelites out of Egypt. Always remember that your prior life in sin is your Egypt. Once you become one of God’s chosen people, a believer, He’s watching out for you and is there to help you.
I never noticed before that God tells Moses to go and gather the elders, the mature teachers and tribal leaders to tell them He was working their situation out. That speaks to me about the fact that we must be mature, growing in the Lord, to truly realize that God is working in our life. If you keep going around the same problem and wondering why God hasn’t fixed it yet, you need to look in the mirror, that might be where the problem is. Babies don’t lead, in fact babies usually demand their own way!
Faith is believing without seeing and we must take that next step in our walk of faith to see God work.
