If we are consistent in our daily lives to diligently read God`s Word and apply it in our lives, we too will end up like Moses did over the years and learn to please God and slowly our character will be changed to one of wisdom through knowing God!
Moses was a man of reaction. He always reacted to situations, but mostly wrongly, however over the years an amazing thing happened to his character.
A few examples of when Moses reacted wrongfully, thinking he was doing what was right
(Exodus 2:11-12. 3:1-15. 4:1 and 10). God was moulding Moses into the man He intended for him to be.
He didn't stop reacting, but rather learned to react to God correctly. He had gained wisdom from God.
Leadership often involves reaction. If we want to react with instincts that are consistent with God`s will, we must develop habits of obedience to God. Consistent obedience to God is best developed in times of less stress. Then when stress comes, our natural reaction will be to obey God!
In Moses, we see an outstanding personality shaped by God, but we must not misunderstand what God did! He did not change who or what Moses was, He did not give Moses new abilities and strengths. Instead, He took Moses' characteristics and moulded them until they were suited to His purposes.
Ask God how you can use what He`s already given you in your strength and abilities to best suit His will.
By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.
If we want God to use us we must submit to His directions for living!
