- “Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the Lord, make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak to him in a dream. 7 Not so with My servant Moses; He is faithful in all My house. 8 I speak with him face to face, Even plainly, and not in dark sayings; And he sees the form of the Lord. Why then were you not afraid To speak against My servant Moses?” (Num. 12:6-8)
Once learned, what led Moses to such faithfulness can become the motivation for us and also something to be taught diligently to our children. What makes Moses such a fascinating servant is because, from all outward signs, he would be in the category of those most likely not to succeed. He was born to enslaved people, threatened with death as an infant, taken from his own home at a very early age, raised by Pharaoh’s daughter in all the opulence and decadence of an idolatrous and wicked nation, and given an education from Egyptian schools where God and His people were seen as enemies. Clearly there was nothing in this that would have prepared him for the task of becoming one of God’s most trusted servants. Yet he rose above it all even though his birth had come at very unfortunate moment. While Aaron, who was only three years older, had escaped Pharaoh’s edict, Moses was caught in it.
- So Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, “Every son who is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.” (Ex. 1:22).
