Many People do not understand the fullness of faith. Some people would even say it’s overrated. But in Hebrews 11 God tells us that faith is a crucial part of our relationship with Him.
See without faith, there is no trust because trust and faith go hand in hand. Faith is believing in the things not seen, faith is the hinge that holds the believer to a personal relationship with God.
It’s what gets ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
In this verse, God is asking Moses to do something uncomfortable something that is very cross grain to Moses. Just as God asked Moses to do something uncomfortable, the Lord will ask and direct us to do things that we are not comfortable with.
GOD KNOW IT ALL...
1. He is the Physician.
If we believe GOD is all knowing, and eternal, we also know that we cannot know everything He does, not in a million lifetimes. Hush, my silly, fluttering heart, prying, peeping, and suspecting! What we don't know not now, we shall know hereafter, and meanwhile Jesus, the beloved Physician, knows our soul in adversities. Why need the patient analyze all the medicine, or estimate all the symptoms? This is the Physician's work, not mine; it is my business to trust, and his to prescribe. If he shall write his prescription in uncouth characters which I cannot read, I will rely upon his unfailing skill to make me well. 2. He is the Architect.
His knowledge provides us protection, instead of our own; when we obey Him. The workers cannot comprehend all what the architect sees or plans but he is here to follow his plan. Shall the architect explain all his plans to every worker on the works? If he knows his own intent, is it not enough? The vessel on the wheel cannot guess to what pattern it shall be conformed, but if the potter understands his art, does it matter that the clay is knowledgeable?
3. He is the Head.
All understanding centers are with the head. What judgment has the arm? What comprehension has the foot? All the power to know lies in the head. Why should the finger have a brain of its own when the head fulfills for it every intellectual office? Here, then, must the believer rest his comfort in sickness, not that he himself can see the end, but that Jesus knows all. Sweet Lord, may you be, forever, our eyes, and soul, and head, and give us the patience to be content to know only what you choose to reveal shall be known.
We hear God speak and then we get busy telling God why we can’t do what He’s asked us to do. In all of Moses’ responses to the Lord Moses is talking about “I”, I’m not good enough, they won’t listen to me, when I go….. Moses was showing a lack of faith in the Lord. Instead of knowing that if the Lord God was sending him, then God would equip Him and God would be the one to deliver His people.
Finally it comes to the point that Moses must make a decision, either to continue in his lack of faith in the Lord or choose to step out in faith in response to the Lords directions.
We too are given direction from the Lord and have a choice whether to hear only or to hear it and in stretching our faith, act on it. Moses chose to stretch his faith by acting on God’s direction.
If you receive it, can you say AMEN! Please share true knowledge about GOD or seek HIM to reveal His purpose for your life. God bless you.
